Subject Re: SOLR-571:LRUCache autowarmCount should support percentages
Date Tue, 20 Apr 2010 05:25:19 GMT

: what is the meaning of 50%? 50% of all queries fired since the last
: searcher opened? sounds like a bad idea.

the motivation behind it is stated in the issue....

...why would that be bad?

The percentage string can be parsed on init, but to be useful the actual 
computation against the "size" needs to be done on each autowarm call so 
that if it's 50% it's warms half the the size of hte cache at the time 
it's warmed -- if you compute what 50% of the size is during init, then it 
defeats the point.
