Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3954) Option to have updateHandler and DIH skip updateLog
Date Tue, 16 Oct 2012 19:51:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-3954?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13477289#comment-13477289
] 

Shawn Heisey commented on SOLR-3954:
------------------------------------

You'll notice that one field has postingsFormat.  This was for another bug that I filed. 
It's not causing any difference in the config.  I will set up my import again so I can illustrate
the performance impact from updateLog.

> The updateLog feature makes updates take longer, likely because of the I/O time required
to write the additional information to disk.  It may take as much as three times as long for
the indexing portion of the process.  I'm not sure whether it affects the time to commit,
but I would imagine that the difference there is small or zero.  When doing incremental updates/deletes
on an existing index, the time lag is probably very small and unimportant.
> When doing a full reindex (which may happen via DIH), especially if this is done in a
build core that is then swapped with a live core, this performance hit is unacceptable.  It
seems to make the import take about three times as long.
> An option to have an update skip the updateLog would be very useful for these situations.
 It should have a method in SolrJ and be exposed in DIH as well.
