Subject Re: Queries on SynonymFilterFactory
Date Fri, 08 May 2015 14:16:45 GMT
This is a quite big Sinonym corpus !
If it's not feasible to have only 1 big synonym file ( I haven't checked,
so I assume the 1 Mb limit is true, even if strange)
I would do an experiment :
1) testing query time with a Solr Classic config
2) Use an Ad Hoc Solr Core to manage Synonyms ( in this way we can keep it
updated and use it with a custom version of the Sysnonym filter that will
get the Synonyms directly from another Solr instance).
2b) develop a Solr plugin to provide this approach

If the synonym thesaurus is really big, I guess managing them through
another Solr Core ( or something similar) locally , will be better than
managing it with an external web service.
