Subject Re: performance implications on using lots of values in fq
Date Thu, 24 Jul 2008 10:44:13 GMT
I don't have much idea on performance of these many fqs,  since I have
usually used very small number of fqs. But passing my thoughts hoping it
might help. (since I did not see any response :-)

a) the filter cache size needs to be more, so that fqs can be cached. If a
fq is not in cache, AFAIK, each fq produces one lucene query.
b) If fqs are in cache, the operations involving fq reduces to intersecting
the N bit sets where N is number of fqs.
In the worst case, N fqs boil down to N lucene queries and N bitset

Just a wild guess - if you are doing something with radius search or similar
search involving lat/longs, you can try using LocalSolr, which takes care of
all the details for you.
