Subject Re: schemaless slow indexing
Date Sun, 22 Mar 2015 19:29:37 GMT
I took a quick look at the stock schemaless configs... unfortunately
they contain a performance trap.
There's a copyField by default that copies *all* fields to a catch-all
field called "_text".

IMO, that's not a great default.  Double the index size (well, the
"index" portion of it at least... not stored fields), and slower
indexing performance.

The other unfortunate thing is the name.  No where else in solr (that
I know of) do we have a single underscore field name.  _text looks
more like a dynamicField pattern.  Our other fields with underscores
look like _version_ and _root_.  If we're going to start a new naming
convention (or expand the naming conventions) we need to have some
consistency and logic behind it.
