Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-1316) Create autosuggest component
Date Tue, 01 Jun 2010 15:57:58 GMT


Andrzej Bialecki  commented on SOLR-1316:

I would expect the facet.prefix method to consume less additional RAM dedicated to this functionality
(because field caches are shared among different components), but I doubt it could beat the
performance of ternary tries.

Also, in many situations it makes sense to populate an auto-complete component from a query
log, and not from the index. If you want to offer phrase-based autocomplete then using facet.prefix
method you would have to create an additional field populated with shingles, and then the
RAM cost would grow tremendously, whereas with TST this increase would be moderate.

Regarding specific numbers ... if you have a test setup for facet.prefix feel free to apply
this patch and test it, we'd love to see your results - see also the numbers above for 100k
random strings.

> Autosuggest is a common search function that can be integrated
