Subject Re: Increase in ByteBufferImpl class heap size in longevity run
Date Tue, 06 Dec 2016 10:50:21 GMT
If you are actively indexing and opening new near-real-time readers,
the number of segments in your index will increase, which means the
number of open input files (corresponding to instances of
ByteBufferIndexInput.SingleBufferImpl) will be created.  So it's
expected its heap usage grows, but the growth should taper as Lucene
merges small segments into larger ones ...
