Subject Re: indexing performance 6.6 vs 7.1

If you have sparse data, I would have expected index time to *decrease*,
not increase.

Can you enable the IW info stream and share flush + merge times to see
where indexing time goes?

If you can run with a profiler, this might also give useful information.
