Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2471) Supporting bulk copies in Directory
Date Mon, 06 Dec 2010 15:03:11 GMT


Shai Erera commented on LUCENE-2471:

bq. I think the problem actually wasn't interrupting but some sort of race condition? 

Could be, I don't remember the exact details.

I totally agree with you, though it's like a "hen and egg" situation - we cannot develop anything
safe until we have good threaded unit tests, and we can never know we have those until we
have any implementation that might break. So I personally don't mind if we pursue implementation
of FileChannel copying, in NIOFSDirectory only, and then investigate the current threaded
indexing/search tests and add some if we think something's missing. But currently we're in
sort of a limbo :).

Anyway, I don't think it's related to that issue and can be handled in a separate issue. If
you agree, and assuming nothing more should be done here, we can close this one.

> A method can be added to IndexOutput that accepts IndexInput, and writes bytes using
it as a source.
> This should be used for bulk-merge cases (offhand - norms, docstores?). Some Directories
can then override default impl and skip intermediate buffers (NIO, MMap, RAM?).
