Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3445) SOLR Stored field in byte format
Date Tue, 08 May 2012 19:05:52 GMT


Bill Bell commented on SOLR-3445:

Well for most of my use cases I am okay with the 256 characters and don't need the overhead
of UTF-8. So instead of converting to UTF-8 just store as a normal String. I would also be
good with Lossy versions, but I am unaware of these algorithms. The goal: get the index smaller
since I don't need the data in there in UTF-8 format.

String x = new String("Store this into a field in solr");

Instead of something like:

String original = new String("A" + "\u00ea" + "\u00f1" + "\u00fc" + "C");

> In order to reduce the size of the stored fields and increase performance of SOLR by
limiting the payload, we should consider adding a parameter for stored that will store the
information in byte format instead of UTF-8.
