Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-5578) Stored fields might accumulate checksums on merges
Date Mon, 07 Apr 2014 18:49:21 GMT


Uwe Schindler commented on LUCENE-5578:

Shouldn't maxPointer be initialized with getFileLength() if the version is below VERSION_CHECKSUM?
Currently it is initialized with -1, which looks wrong. *This would never affect us, because
we never merge accross versions, but we should maybe add a comment about this.*

> The bulk merge operation of our stored fields format is optimized in order to avoid decompressing
data when not needed. In order to know the offset of the end of the current block, it either
consults the stored fields index, or uses {{fieldsStream.length()}} for the last chunk.
> However, we just added checksums at the end of index files, so it might currently copy
the current checksum in addition to the last chunk, and then write a new checksum.
