Subject RE: Index size increases disproportionately to size of added field when indexed=false
Date Tue, 13 Feb 2018 20:23:15 GMT

Hi Erick,

Thanks for responding.  You are correct that we don't have any deleted docs.  When we want
to re-index (once a fortnight), we build a brand new installation of Solr from scratch and
re-import the new data into an empty index.

I will try setting docValues to false and see if that makes a difference.  It sounds like
we shouldn't have it on anyway, as we only ever want to be able to retrieve this field.  In
what situation would it make sense to have indexed=false and docValues=true?

I will re-index and get a sizing for all of the different file extensions both with and without
the problematic field.
