Subject Re: Responding to Requests with Chunks/Streaming
Date Thu, 12 Apr 2012 20:17:07 GMT
Hello Developers,

I just want to ask don't you think that response streaming can be useful
for things like OLAP, e.g. is you have sharded index presorted and
pre-joined by BJQ way you can calculate counts in many cube cells in
parallel?
Essential distributed test for response streaming just passed.
https://github.com/m-khl/solr-patches/blob/ec4db7c0422a5515392a7019c5bd23ad3f546e4b/solr/core/src/test/org/apache/solr/response/RespStreamDistributedTest.java

branch is https://github.com/m-khl/solr-patches/tree/streaming

Regards
