Subject [jira] Created: (NUTCH-627) Minimize host address lookup
Date Thu, 10 Apr 2008 04:12:04 GMT
Minimize host address lookup
----------------------------

                 Key: NUTCH-627
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NUTCH-627
             Project: Nutch
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: generator
            Reporter: Otis Gospodnetic
         Attachments: NUTCH-627.patch

The simple patch that I'm about to attach keeps track of hosts whose "max URLs per host" limit
we already reached, as well as hosts whose hostname->IP lookup already failed.  For such
hosts, further DNS lookups are skipped:
- there is no point in looking up a hostname yet again if we already have the max number of
URLs for that host
- there is little point in attempting to look up a hostname yet again if the previous lookup
already failed

In a simple test, this saved a few hundred thousand lookups for the first case and a few hundred
lookups for the second case.

If nobody complains, I'll commit by the end of the week.
