             Summary: CachingCollector.create(boolean, boolean, double) is trappy
                 Key: LUCENE-4372
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-4372
             Project: Lucene - Core
          Issue Type: Task
            Reporter: Robert Muir


Followup to LUCENE-3102.

Shai proposed a method that just caches all scores so they can be replayed:

Do you think we can modify this Collector to not necessarily wrap another Collector? We have
such Collector which stores (in-memory) all matching doc IDs + scores (if required). Those
are later fed into several processes that operate on them (e.g. fetch more info from the index
etc.). I am thinking, we can make CachingCollector optionally wrap another Collector and then
someone can reuse it by setting RAM limit to unlimited (we should have a constant for that)
in order to simply collect all matching docs + scores.

But Mike had concerns about the RAM usage:
{quote}
I'd actually rather not have the constant – ie, I don't want to make
it easy to be unlimited? It seems too dangerous... I'd rather your
code has to spell out 10*1024 so you realize you're saying 10 GB (for
example).
{quote}

My concern here is what happens when you dont specify enough, I think those hits are just
silently dropped (which is worse than using lots of RAM).
