Subject [jira] [Updated] (LUCENE-4060) DirectoryTaxonomyWriter.addTaxonomies does not work well in a multi-threaded environment
Date Wed, 16 May 2012 07:02:07 GMT


Shai Erera updated LUCENE-4060:

    Attachment: LUCENE-4060.patch

Patch does:

* Fix the bug
* Renames addTaxonomies to addTaxonomy
* Greatly simplifies addTaxonomy logic
* Overhauls TestAddTaxonomies to be simpler and test what it needs to test - for some reason
it tested that after addTaxonmy the new categories are sorted in a lexicographic order, which
is a side effect of addTaxonomy, but does not need to be like that.

NOTE: before applying the patch you should run
svn mv lucene/contrib/facet/src/test/org/apache/lucene/facet/taxonomy/directory/

One nice side effect of this improvement is that testBig, with the really huge taxonomy, takes
12 seconds faster to run after the change. While this is not a pure benchmark, it does show
that the modified implementation is faster than the older.

I will commit this shortly and port to trunk.

> DirTaxoWriter.addTaxonomies may lead to a corrupt taxonomy index if addCategory is called
in parallel. While reviewing the code, the following changes seemed to be required:
> * Fix the bug
> * Simplify addTaxonomies code -- it's very complicated, seems rather inefficient, and
seems to take care of more than is needed.
> * The intention to support multiple taxonomies is unclear, especially since FacetsPayloadProcessor
can handle only one Directory and one OrdinalMap at a time. So I'd like to change the method
to addTaxonomy. I anyway don't see the reason to add multiple taxonomies at once, one can
call addTaxonomy several times.
> I will post a patch soon.
