Subject Re: how to search miilions of record in solr query

Yes, because only a small portion of that 250ms is spent in the query
parser. Most of it, i would suggest, is spent retrieving and merging
posting lists.

In an inverted index (which Lucene is), you store the list of documents
matching a term against that term - that is your postings list.

When you search against multiple terms, Lucene needs to merge those into
a definitive list of matching documents, and for large numbers of terms,
that can be costly.
