Subject [jira] [Updated] (LUCENE-3203) Rate-limit IO used by merging
Date Tue, 14 Jun 2011 17:25:47 GMT


Michael McCandless updated LUCENE-3203:

    Attachment: LUCENE-3203.patch

Patch, with a hacked up a prototype impl, but I don't think we should
commit it like this.  Instead, I think we should wait for IOContext,
and then Dir impls can allow app to specify max merge write rate.

> Large merges can mess up searches and increase NRT reopen time (see
> A simple rate limiter improves the spikey NRT reopen times during big
> merges, so I think we should somehow make this possible.  Likely this

> Typically apps that do indexing and searching on same box are in no
> rush to see the merges complete so this is a good tradeoff.
