             Summary: Segment-level Bloom filters for a 2 x speed up on rare term searches
                 Key: LUCENE-4069
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-4069
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: core/index
    Affects Versions: 3.6
            Reporter: Mark Harwood
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 3.6.1


An addition to each segment which stores a Bloom filter for selected fields in order to give
fast-fail to term searches, helping avoid wasted disk access.

Best suited for low-frequency fields e.g. primary keys on big indexes with many segments but
also speeds up general searching in my tests.

Benchmarks based on Wikipedia content here: http://goo.gl/X7QqU

Patch based on 3.6 codebase attached.
There are no API changes currently - to play just add a field with "_blm" on the end of the
name to invoke special indexing/querying capability. Clearly a new Field or schema declaration(!)
would need adding to APIs to configure the service properly.
