Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3443) Optimize hunspell dictionary loading with multiple cores
Date Mon, 07 May 2012 12:42:53 GMT


Luca Cavanna commented on SOLR-3443:

The first thing I have in mind is a static map containing all loaded dictionaries with some
kind of unique identifier, so that the same dictionary can be reused between cores.
But my question is: is there a mechanism to share object between cores in Solr? Is this the
first time someone needs to share something between multiple cores?
I'd like to hear your thoughts!

> The Hunspell dictionary is actually loaded into memory. Each core using hunspell loads
its own dictionary, no matter if all the cores are using the same dictionary files. As a result,
the same dictionary is loaded into memory multiple times, once for each core. I think we should
share those dictionaries between all cores in order to optimize the memory usage. In fact,
let's say a dictionary takes 20MB into memory (this is what I detected), if you have 20 cores
you are going to use 400MB only for dictionaries, which doesn't seem a good idea to me.
