Subject Re: Caching of TermDocs
Date Tue, 27 Jul 2004 12:10:10 GMT
The caching by TermScorer of the next 32 Docs is a way to speed up the
serial (in order) reading of docs from the TermDocs object (probably coming
direct from disk).

I would like to hold a significant amount of the index in memory but use the
disk index as a spill over.  Obviously the best situation is to hold in
memory only the information that is likely to be used again soon.  It seems
that caching TermDocs would allow popular search terms to be searched more
efficiently while the less common terms would need to be read from disk.

Has anyone else done this?  Know of a better approach?
