Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4936) docvalues date compression
Date Fri, 19 Apr 2013 14:17:15 GMT


Adrien Grand commented on LUCENE-4936:

Thank you Uwe! Unfortunately, I just figured out that the patch is broken when v - minValue
overflows (in Consumer.addNumericField). I need to think about a way to fix it...

> DocValues fields can be very wasteful if you are storing dates (like solr's TrieDateField
does if you enable docvalues) and don't actually need all the precision: e.g. "date-only"
fields like date of birth with no time component, time fields without milliseconds precision,
and so on.
> Ideally we'd compute GCD of all the values to save space (numberOfTrailingZeros is not
really enough here), but i think we should at least look for values like 86400000, 3600000,
and 1000 to be practical.
