Class Lucene40DocValuesFormat

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class Lucene40DocValuesFormat
    extends DocValuesFormat
    Only for reading old 4.0 and 4.1 segments
    Lucene 4.0 DocValues format.


    Entries within the compound file:
    • <segment>_<fieldNumber>.dat: data values
    • <segment>_<fieldNumber>.idx: index into the .dat for DEREF types

    There are several many types of DocValues with different encodings. From the perspective of filenames, all types store their values in .dat entries within the compound file. In the case of dereferenced/sorted types, the .dat actually contains only the unique values, and an additional .idx file contains pointers to these unique values.

    • VAR_INTS .dat --> Header, PackedType, MinValue, DefaultValue, PackedStream
    • FIXED_INTS_8 .dat --> Header, ValueSize, Bytemaxdoc
    • FIXED_INTS_16 .dat --> Header, ValueSize, Shortmaxdoc
    • FIXED_INTS_32 .dat --> Header, ValueSize, Int32maxdoc
    • FIXED_INTS_64 .dat --> Header, ValueSize, Int64maxdoc
    • FLOAT_32 .dat --> Header, ValueSize, Float32maxdoc
    • FLOAT_64 .dat --> Header, ValueSize, Float64maxdoc
    • BYTES_FIXED_STRAIGHT .dat --> Header, ValueSize, (Byte * ValueSize)maxdoc
    • BYTES_VAR_STRAIGHT .idx --> Header, TotalBytes, Addresses
    • BYTES_VAR_STRAIGHT .dat --> Header, (Byte * variable ValueSize)maxdoc
    • BYTES_FIXED_DEREF .idx --> Header, NumValues, Addresses
    • BYTES_FIXED_DEREF .dat --> Header, ValueSize, (Byte * ValueSize)NumValues
    • BYTES_VAR_DEREF .idx --> Header, TotalVarBytes, Addresses
    • BYTES_VAR_DEREF .dat --> Header, (LengthPrefix + Byte * variable ValueSize)NumValues
    • BYTES_FIXED_SORTED .idx --> Header, NumValues, Ordinals
    • BYTES_FIXED_SORTED .dat --> Header, ValueSize, (Byte * ValueSize)NumValues
    • BYTES_VAR_SORTED .idx --> Header, TotalVarBytes, Addresses, Ordinals
    • BYTES_VAR_SORTED .dat --> Header, (Byte * variable ValueSize)NumValues
    Data Types: Notes:
    • PackedType is a 0 when compressed, 1 when the stream is written as 64-bit integers.
    • Addresses stores pointers to the actual byte location (indexed by docid). In the VAR_STRAIGHT case, each entry can have a different length, so to determine the length, docid+1 is retrieved. A sentinel address is written at the end for the VAR_STRAIGHT case, so the Addresses stream contains maxdoc+1 indices. For the deduplicated VAR_DEREF case, each length is encoded as a prefix to the data itself as a VInt (maximum of 2 bytes).
    • Ordinals stores the term ID in sorted order (indexed by docid). In the FIXED_SORTED case, the address into the .dat can be computed from the ordinal as Header+ValueSize+(ordinal*ValueSize) because the byte length is fixed. In the VAR_SORTED case, there is double indirection (docid -> ordinal -> address), but an additional sentinel ordinal+address is always written (so there are NumValues+1 ordinals). To determine the length, ord+1's address is looked up as well.
    • BYTES_VAR_STRAIGHT BYTES_VAR_STRAIGHT in contrast to other straight variants uses a .idx file to improve lookup perfromance. In contrast to BYTES_VAR_DEREF BYTES_VAR_DEREF it doesn't apply deduplication of the document values.
