> We have sugar methods in (docFreq, totalTermFreq, docs,
> docsAndPositions) that use a saved thread-private TermsEnum to do the
> lookups.
> But on apps that send many threads through Lucene, and/or have many
> segments, this can add up to a lot of RAM, especially if the codecs
> impl holds onto stuff.
> Also, Terms has a close method (closes the CloseableThreadLocal) which
> must be called, but we fail to do so in some places.
> These saved enums are the cause of the recent OOME in TestNRTManager
> (TestNRTManager.testNRTManager -seed
> 2aa27e1aec20c4a2:-4a5a5ecf46837d0e:-7c4f651f1f0b75d7 -mult 3
> -nightly).
> Really sharing these enums is a holdover from before Lucene queries
> would share state (ie, save the TermState from the first pass, and use
> it later to pull enums, get docFreq, etc.).  It's not helpful anymore,
> and it can use gobbs of RAM, so I'd like to remove it.
