Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-1149) 12% performance improvement by caching in CompositeParser
Date Mon, 22 Jul 2013 12:58:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1149?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13715180#comment-13715180
] 

Jukka Zitting commented on TIKA-1149:
-------------------------------------

Note that for example {{DefaultParser.getParsers(ParseContext)}} can return a different set
of parsers on each invocation, thanks to the dynamic service lookup mechanism in {{ServiceLoader}}.
Thus caching the return value can lead to incorrect behavior.

An alternative optimization would be to refactor the {{CompositeParser.getParser(Metadata,
ParseContext)}} method so that it doesn't need to always instantiate the full type->parser
map. Instead it could for example restrict the search to only the specified type and its supertypes.

> We found an easy way to improve Tika's performance. The idea is to avoid recomputing
parsers map over and over 
> in CompositeParser.getParsers(...) if the context is empty and to cache the returned
value instead. 
> This can be done safely even under the assumption that the media-registry and the list
of component parsers do change while Tika is executing, by invalidating the cache in the case.
> Our attached patch computes the parsers map once per instance of CompositeParser.
> The patch checks for the case where the context is empty and invalidates the cache if
both media-registry and the list of component parsers change in the corresponding setters.
> For example, when running Tika 1.3 on a set of large (~50k classes) JAR files (i.e.,
Java class library + Tika app + other apps), the patch reduces the running time
> from 32 seconds to 29 seconds -- i.e., a speedup of ~12%. Speedups of the same order
of magnitude are found also for smaller workloads.
