Subject Re: Typical Indexing performance
Date Tue, 03 Jun 2008 19:57:02 GMT
  Here my latest testing of Oracle-Lucene integration (Lucene 2.3.2
binary dist. / Oracle 11g):
  Tested against Spanish Wikipedia Dumps and using Wikipedia Analyzer/Tokenizer.
  There is independent times for uploading process and for indexing process.
  Uploading process means parsing of Wikipedia XML dumps and insert
into Oracle XMLDB repository which transform it in an object
relational structure:
  Indexing process means a creation of a Lucene Domain Index with
something like this:

create index pages_lidx_all on pages p (value(p))
indextype is Lucene.LuceneIndex

  Which indexs in separately Lucene Fields title, comment,  text and
timestamp XML nodes and the Oracle ROWID.
  Best regards, Marcelo.

there is not indexing, it is reading data from HDFS (over the network).
