Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-7563) BKD index should compress unused leading bytes
Date Mon, 05 Dec 2016 15:27:58 GMT


Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-7563:

Ahh, OK; I think we should restrict {{TestBKD}} to the same dimension count / bytes per dimension
limits that Lucene enforces?  As we tighten up how we compress it on disk and the in-heap
index we should only test for what we actually offer to the end user.

> Today the BKD (points) in-heap index always uses {{dimensionNumBytes}} per dimension,
but if e.g. you are indexing {{LongPoint}} yet only use the bottom two bytes in a given segment,
we shouldn't store all those leading 0s in the index.
