Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4283) Support more frequent skip with Block Postings Format
Date Sun, 05 Aug 2012 22:42:02 GMT


Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-4283:

Thanks Billy, I tweaked the cleanup patch some (removed blockInts, restored lost DEBUGs, added
some nocommits, etc.) and committed.

> This change works on the new bulk branch.
> Currently, our BlockPostingsFormat only supports skipInterval==blockSize. Every time
the skipper reaches the last level 0 skip point, we'll have to decode a whole block to read
doc/freq data. Also,  a higher level skip list will be created only for those df>blockSize^k,
which means for most terms, skipping will just be a linear scan. If we increase current blockSize
for better bulk i/o performance, current skip setting will be a bottleneck. 
> For ForPF, the encoded block can be easily splitted if we set skipInterval=32*k.
