Subject Re: filter query on timestamp slowing query???
Date Fri, 23 Jul 2010 21:19:30 GMT
just wanted to mention a possible other route, which might be entirely
hypothetical :-)

*If* you could query on internal docid (I'm not sure that it's available
out-of-the-box, or if you can at all)
your original problem, quoted below, could imo be simplified to asking for
the last docid inserted (that match the other criteria from your use-case)
and in the next call filter from that docid forward.

Again, I'm not entirely sure that quering / filtering on internal docid's is
possible (perhaps someone can comment) but if it is, it would perhaps be
more performant.
Big IF, I know.
