Subject Re: how number of indexed fields effect performance
Date Tue, 23 Jul 2013 13:54:12 GMT
Do you need all of the fields loaded every time and are they stored? Maybe
there is a document with gigantic content that you don't actually need but
it gets deserialized anyway. Try lazy loading
setting: enableLazyFieldLoading in solrconfig.xml
