Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-4589) 4.x + enableLazyFieldLoading + large multivalued fields + varying fl = pathological CPU load & response time
Date Tue, 19 Mar 2013 22:23:17 GMT


Hoss Man commented on SOLR-4589:

bq. The easiest fix would be to make realValue volatile (and readers will thus cross a read
memory barrier).

I don't fully understand what situation you are concerned about here, but making it volatile
is easy .. running tests now.

bq. Does this happen with Solr?

no, but the way the public API for LazyDocument is defined, it is possible (even though it
wouldn't really make any sense given the way the API is really only usable from a StoredFieldVisitor)
so i wanted to protect against it  -- i included test randomization to verify that the edge
case works.

> Following up on a [user report of exterme CPU usage in 4.1|],
I've discovered that the following combination of factors can result in extreme CPU usage
and excessively HTTP response times...
> * Solr 4.x (tested 3.6.1, 4.0.0, and 4.2.0)
> * enableLazyFieldLoading == true (included in example solrconfig.xml)
> * documents with a large number of values in multivalued fields (eg: tested ~10-15K values)
> * multiple requests returning the same doc with different "fl" lists
> I haven't dug into the route cause yet, but the essential observations is: if lazyloading
is used in 4.x, then once a document has been fetched with an initial fl list X, subsequent
requests for that document using a differnet fl list Y can be many orders of magnitute slower
(while pegging the CPU) -- even if those same requests using fl Y uncached (or w/o lazy laoding)
would be extremely fast.
