Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-2180) Multiple requests on Tika to extract text slows down
Date Fri, 02 Dec 2016 14:47:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-2180?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15715310#comment-15715310

Tim Allison commented on TIKA-2180:

The file format (docx) seems to be the bottleneck.

When I ran 4 consumers against 4 input documents ("save as" from your initial War and Peace
.docx) on an 8 cpu machine, I got:

rtf 4.7 seconds
pdf 21 seconds
doc 6.7 seconds
txt 4.7 seconds
docx (legacy parser): I gave up -- machine pegged, 8gb memory used...thrashing (FULL GC (Ergonomics))
docx (experimental SAX parser): 9 seconds (never got above 200MB)

When I ran it with one consumer thread:
docx (legacy parser): 67 seconds (6gb used)
docx (experimental SAX parser): 15 seconds (never got above 200MB)

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-2180
>             Project: Tika
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: server
>    Affects Versions: 1.13, 1.14
>         Environment: Windows OS, Open JDK, 4 core 32 GB RAM
>            Reporter: Ashish Basran
> I observed that if I send multiple requests to Tika (eg. http://localhost:8080/tika)
with around 5MB files, Tika is very slow in completing the action. I tried with ~20 random
files, it took 170 seconds to process all the files in sequence. If I pass all files in parallel,
it took around 780 seconds to process same set of files.
