Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-2359) Extreme slow parsing on the attachment attached
Date Fri, 12 May 2017 07:03:04 GMT

Eugen Mayer commented on TIKA-2359:

Guys as far as i understood you just explained that  you

1. Are not using the easy deterministic, fast extraction libs if the are installed by default
( as a design decision )
2. But you are using the most expensive, not deterministic on, OCR, by default.

No matter what this means for legacy issue, think about the decision process here - i would
say this needs to be fixed. Not for me - i got this, but believe me, i am using TIKA for 4
years now and thats the first time i stumbeled uppon this - i am living with this waste of
time for 4 years now.

This just fools your user base and makes you even look bad performance wise - i was comparing
tike to other doc/pdf to text libs which performed better and was about to switch - because
i had not idea i compare apple with oranges ( OCR vs plaintext ).

To give you a number, the example document take 93s with the defaults (so with OCR) and  0.9s
without. We are talking about roughly 100x slower.
