Subject [jira] [Commented] (NUTCH-2496) Speed up link inversion step in crawling script
Date Mon, 15 Jan 2018 23:51:00 GMT


Moreno Feltscher commented on NUTCH-2496:

[~markus17]: Thanks for that hint. This is something I still don't really get. Where and to
what steps exactly are those filters/normalizers being applied?

In my case I only have a {{regex-urlfilter.txt}} file as well as the following plugin configuration:

Would it make sense to disable filtering/normalization in LinkDB?

> While working on a project where I have to index a huge number of URLs I encountered
an issue with the link inversion step of the crawling script. A while ago Ian Lopata stumbled
upon the same issue as described here:

> Back then [~wastl-nagel] suggested turning off the normalizers and filters during the
inversion step which speeds up the process a bunch.
> In my case however I kind of depend on those so this is no real solution.
> I opened this issue here in order to get some feedback on how we could improve things
in a crawl script and speed up the process.
