Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-5476) Facet sampling
Date Tue, 04 Mar 2014 13:00:23 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-5476:

-1 to adding this XOrShiftRandom to lucene/core. There is absolutely no need for it to be
here. We are an IR library, not a JDK. Just because its "useful" is _not_ good enough to expose
something as a public API. 

Moreover, this class does not extend java.util.Random, has no statistical tests, etc. Doesn't
belong as a public api in lucene core. please keep it package private in facets.

> With LUCENE-5339 facet sampling disappeared. 
> When trying to display facet counts on large datasets (>10M documents) counting facets
is rather expensive, as all the hits are collected and processed. 
> Sampling greatly reduced this and thus provided a nice speedup. Could it be brought back?
