Subject [lucy-user] Latest revision and parallel ClusterSearcher/SearchServer
Date Mon, 28 Jan 2013 16:13:49 GMT

I've been out of touch for a while and need to touch base with the boys
from the Lucy 'hood :)

1.  We're using r1167124 on a largish cluster with ~200m pages - and
cluster search performance has always been terrible.
2.  I see from that:

 * [LUCY-204] - Process ClusterSearcher RPCs in parallel
 * [LUCY-205] - Parallel processing for SearchServer
      This introduces an incompatible API change: The port argument has moved
      from the constructor to the serve method and the password argument has
      been removed.

Which frankly looks mouth watering.


1.  If we svn up to latest, I take it we'll need to reindex all?

2.  Is the take-away from LUCY-204/5 that cluster searching now operates in
parallel?  ie, none of the old serial-by-search-node which leads to 10s -
60s+ search times (instead of sub-second if using a single node)?

Pray tell!
