Subject Re: are facets or MatchAllDocsQuery not cached?
Date Thu, 06 Aug 2015 12:33:22 GMT
Typically such performance issues with faceting are to do with the time
spend uninverting the index before calculating the facet counts. 

If you indexed the fields with docValues enabled, perhaps you could then
use them for faceting, which might improve performance.

If you are using a non-docValues field, and the second query is faster,
then you could add the query to your static warming, look for
newSearcher in your solrconfig.xml. That will execute your query,
warming the caches used by faceting, before a new searcher is made
available for searches.
