>    Affects Versions: 7.5
>            Reporter: Tim Underwood
>            Assignee: David Smiley
>            Priority: Major

> Most implementations of the LeafReader cache an instance of FieldInfos which is returned
in the LeafReader.getFieldInfos() method.  There are a few places that currently do not and
this can cause performance problems.
> The most notable example is the lack of caching in Solr's SlowCompositeReaderWrapper
which caused unexpected performance slowdowns when trying to use Solr's JSON Facets compared
to the legacy facets.
> This proposed change is mostly relevant to Solr but touches a few Lucene classes.  Specifically:
> *1.* Adds a check to TestUtil.checkReader to verify that LeafReader.getFieldInfos() returns
the same instance:
> {code:java}
> // FieldInfos should be cached at the reader and always return the same instance
>  if (reader.getFieldInfos() != reader.getFieldInfos()) {
>  throw new RuntimeException("getFieldInfos() returned different instances for class:
>  }
> {code}
> I'm not entirely sure this is wanted or needed but adding it uncovered most of the other
LeafReader implementations that were not caching FieldInfos.  I'm happy to remove this part
of the patch though.
> *2.* Adds a FieldInfos.EMPTY that can be used in a handful of places
> {code:java}
> public final static FieldInfos EMPTY = new FieldInfos(new FieldInfo[0]);
> {code}
> There are several places in the Lucene/Solr tests that were creating empty instances
of FieldInfos which were causing the check in #1 to fail.  This fixes those failures and
cleans up the code a bit.
> *3.* Fixes a few LeafReader implementations that were not caching FieldInfos
> Specifically:
>  * *MemoryIndex.MemoryIndexReader* - The constructor was already looping over the fields
so it seemed natural to just create the FieldInfos at that time
>  * *SlowCompositeReaderWrapper* - This was the one causing me trouble.  I've moved the
caching of FieldInfos from SolrIndexSearcher to SlowCompositeReaderWrapper.
>  * *CollapsingQParserPlugin.ReaderWrapper* - getFieldInfos() is immediately called twice
after this is constructed
>  * *ExpandComponent.ReaderWrapper* - getFieldInfos() is immediately called twice after
this is constructed
> *4.* Minor Solr tweak to avoid calling SolrIndexSearcher.getSlowAtomicReader in FacetFieldProcessorByHashDV. 
This change is now optional since SlowCompositeReaderWrapper caches FieldInfos.
> As suggested by [~dsmiley] this takes the place of SOLR-12878 since it touches some
Lucene code.
