> I've got 1.2M single-page PDF files which I'm indexing using Solr (which is using Tika,
which is using PDFBox) and some of them takes between 20min up to an hour to index.
> This is a huge problem for me, in 48hours I've indexed about 45k files and 19 hours of
that time was spent on just 279 files.
> I've traced it to PDFBox taking a lot of time extracting the text from the documents.
> I've tested extracting the text using pdfbox-app's ExtractText with the same result,
the text is extracted but it takes forever...
> The attached file took about 23min (using ExtractText) and from the result I can see
a lot of "rubbish text" which I don't see in the text extracted from files that takes a normal
amount of time (up to a few seconds per file) to parse.
> When running truss (on Solaris, strace on Linux) on the java-process, I can see a lot
of SEGV due to FLTBOUNDS, which I don't know if its related to this problem but I just want
to mention it.
