Subject Filter Performance
Date Thu, 20 Jan 2011 09:50:18 GMT
Hi all

I've got an Index with a few 100k documents and I want to run a rather complex wildcard (incl.
leading wildcards) query on it.
The wildcard query takes about 2 seconds to complete.
Now, I want to limit the items on which the wildcard query will be executed.
Let's say, I want to limit the items to those which have the field "ProductName" set to "milk"
(this query itself runs in less than 5 milliseconds and returns about 100 items).
So, I tried different things but everything resulted in having the exact same execution time
like without this  filter. Even if I run the query multiple times in a row with the same Query
and Filter items.

Here's what I tried:

-          Adding "+ProductName:milk" to the Query

-          Added FieldCacheTermsFilter("ProductName ", new String[] { "milk" }) as Filter

-          Wrapped the Filter in CachingWrapperFilter

-          Used  BooleanQuery filterQuery = new BooleanQuery(); filterQuery.add(new TermQuery(new
Term("ProductName", "milk ")), BooleanClause.Occur.MUST); and wrapped it with a QueryWrapperFilter
and also tried wrapping it in a FilteredQuery

Nothing improved the searchspeed, it had always the same speed as when he parsed thru all
documents without any pre-filtering.

Is this pre-filtering different than I thought? Am I doing something wrong? Does the index
need to be build somehow special for this to work?

Thanks for your help
