Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-5052) bitset codec for off heap filters
Date Tue, 25 Mar 2014 19:54:21 GMT


Mikhail Khludnev commented on LUCENE-5052:

[~mikemccand] let's agree on desired functionality:
* this posting format should wrap the standard one, like pulsing;
* if IndexOptions.DOCS_ONLY is provided, this codec suppresses standard posting format and
write the bitset file (<<should-be>> explore fancy formats then);
* same logic applies on reading;

I wonder what’s the correct behavior if docEnum is requested with FLAG_FREQS, should it
silently returns 1 on freq() or throwing exception?

Let me ask one off-top question about switching to PulsingPF. I've heard that it's enabled
_automatically_ for id-like field. Can you point on where it's done particularly? Does it
works for Lucene only, or for Solr also?

> When we filter we don’t care any of scoring factors i.e. norms, positions, tf, but
it should be fast. The obvious way to handle this is to decode postings list and cache it
in heap (CachingWrappingFilter, Solr’s DocSet). Both of consuming a heap and decoding as
well are expensive. 
> Let’s write a posting list as a bitset, if df is greater than segment's maxdocs/8 
(what about skiplists? and overall performance?). 
> Beside of the codec implementation, the trickiest part to me is to design API for this.
How we can let the app know that a term query don’t need to be cached in heap, but can be
held as an mmaped bitset?
> WDYT?
