Subject [jira] Reopened: (LUCENE-2650) improve windows defaults in FSDirectory
Date Fri, 03 Dec 2010 15:39:11 GMT


Robert Muir reopened LUCENE-2650:

I'd like to reopen this issue to propose backporting the defaults change (for 64-bit windows)
to 3.x

Its been a few months now with this default in trunk and there haven't been any reported problems.
Additionally our tests are much better now (e.g. we test all directory impls).

> Currently windows defaults to SimpleFSDirectory, but this is a problem due to the synchronization.
> I have been benchmarking queries *sequentially* and was pretty surprised at how much
> MMapDirectory is, for example for cases that do many seeks.
> I think we should change the defaults for windows as such:
> if (WINDOWS and UNMAP_SUPPORTED and 64-bit)
>   use MMapDirectory
> else
>   use SimpleFSDirectory 
> I think we should just consider doing this for 4.0 only and see how it goes.
