Subject RE: Does DocValues improve Grouping performance ?
Date Fri, 30 Jan 2015 21:10:36 GMT
Hi Shamik,

We use DocValues for grouping, and although I have nothing to compare it to (we started with
DocValues), we are also seeing similar poor results as you: easily 60% overhead compared to
non-group queries.  Looking around for some solution, no quick fix is presenting itself unfortunately.
 CollapsingQParserPlugin also is too limited for our needs.

   Does use of DocValues provide any performance improvement for Grouping ?
I' looked into the blog which mentions improving Grouping performance through DocValues.

Right now, Group by queries (which I can't sadly avoid) has become a huge bottleneck. It has
an overhead of 60-70% compared to the same query san group by. Unfortunately, I'm not able
to be CollapsingQParserPlugin as it doesn't have a support similar to "group.facet" feature.

My understanding on DocValues is that it's intended for faceting and sorting. Just wondering
if anyone have tried DocValues for Grouping and saw any improvements ?
