Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2462) Using spellcheck.collate can result in extremely high memory usage
Date Fri, 03 Jun 2011 19:36:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-2462?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13043992#comment-13043992

Maybe we can just put a hard limit on the number of possibilities it will evaluate? It could
be really high like a million or something. We could make it a configurable parameter, something
like "spellcheck.maxCollationPossibilitiesToEval" , but then again that seems silly. Who would
really change it if a million was the default ?

Well, I think this sounds much better than being time-based? And you know, use your best judgement
as a default, definitely I'm ok with it as long as its configurable and has good defaults.

> When using "spellcheck.collate", class SpellPossibilityIterator creates a ranked list
of *every* possible correction combination.  But if returning several corrections per term,
and if several words are misspelled, the existing algorithm uses a huge amount of memory.
> This bug was introduced with SOLR-2010.  However, it is triggered anytime "spellcheck.collate"
is used.  It is not necessary to use any features that were added with SOLR-2010.
> We were in Production with Solr for 1 1/2 days and this bug started taking our Solr servers
down with "infinite" GC loops.  It was pretty easy for this to happen as occasionally a user
will accidently paste the URL into the Search box on our app.  This URL results in a search
with ~12 misspelled words.  We have "spellcheck.count" set to 15.
