Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3892) Add a useful intblock postings format (eg, FOR, PFOR, PFORDelta, Simple9/16/64, etc.)
Date Mon, 30 Jul 2012 22:18:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-3892?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13425306#comment-13425306
] 

Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-3892:
--------------------------------------------

I just committed a new BlockPacked postings format, which is a copy of
Block postings format but using oal.util.packed for encode/decode.

I left Block unchanged, except I moved the util classes it had been
using out of oal.codecs.pfor, and removed oal.codecs.pfor.

So now we can iterate to speed up packed ints cutover, and do perf
tests off the branch.

> On the flex branch we explored a number of possible intblock
> encodings, but for whatever reason never brought them to completion.
> There are still a number of issues opened with patches in different
> states.
> Initial results (based on prototype) were excellent (see

> I think this would make a good GSoC project.
