Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENE-3516) Add serialization support for RAMDirectory
Date Thu, 13 Oct 2011 17:59:14 GMT
Add serialization support for RAMDirectory
------------------------------------------

                 Key: LUCENE-3516
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-3516
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: core/store
    Affects Versions: 3.4
            Reporter: John Wang
         Attachments: RAMDirectorySerializer.java

We are building Lucene indexes via Hadoop, and using byte[] for of RAMDirectory as intermediate
storage. (we are using Hadoop's indexing contrib package)
Currently Java serialization is used, and seemed wasteful and not portable across languages.
Since RAMDirectory essentially is a collection of byte[], writing a serializer seemed easy.
Attached please find a utility class that does such. This includes a light performance comparison
test comparing the java serialization:

Results: (input, number of files and avg file size, output, size percentage: our ser/java
ser, time, serialization: percentage, our ser/java ser, deserialization: percentage, our ser/java
ser

test 1:(3, 1k)
size: 66.93%
ser time: 1.89%
deser time: 4.48%

test 2: (100,100)
size: 95.16%
ser time: 4.01%
deser time: 13.36%

test 3: (3,50k)
size: 98.42%
ser time: 3.09%
deser time: 8.10%

test 4: (1,1k)
size: 41.70%
ser time: 1.85%
dser time: 3.85%

The implementation is very elementary, yet still much better than java ser. Esp on the time
(avg 50x faster)
