Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3142) remove O(n^2) slow slow indexing defaults in DataImportHandler
Date Tue, 21 Feb 2012 17:30:35 GMT


Hoss Man commented on SOLR-3142:

FWIW: I'm pretty sure the original assumption here was that in the (relatively common) usecase
of doing a full-import rebuild on a regular basis (ie: nightly) that it can be handy to have
it auto-optimize when you are done.   I think the real problem is that that assumption was
never challeneged regarding things like delta import.

so an argument could be made the the default should still be to optimze=true on full-import,
and optimize=false on delta import ... but i'm not going to make that argument, i think this
it's silly to assume true in either case.  (particularly since a parameterized full import
might actually be a rapidly repeating incremental)

> By default, dataimporthandler optimizes the entire index when it commits.
> This is bad for performance, because it means by default its doing a very
> heavy index-wide operation even for an incremental update... essentially 
> O(n^2) indexing.
> All that is needed is to set optimize=false by default. If someone wants
> to optimize, they can either set optimize=true or explicitly optimize themselves.
