Subject Boolean query with 50,000 clauses! Possible? Scalable?
Date Sun, 26 Jul 2009 08:13:33 GMT

I am faced with the requirement for a boolean query composed of 50,000
clauses (all of them directed at the same field) all OR'ed together. 

I know that maxClauseCount can be set arbitrarily, but I am wondering
whether this kind of query would chock and how scalable are this kind of
queries (time/memory).

Thank you in advance for your help and consideration
