Class TieredMergePolicy

  • All Implemented Interfaces:, java.lang.AutoCloseable, java.lang.Cloneable

    public class TieredMergePolicy
    extends MergePolicy
    Merges segments of approximately equal size, subject to an allowed number of segments per tier. This is similar to LogByteSizeMergePolicy, except this merge policy is able to merge non-adjacent segment, and separates how many segments are merged at once (setMaxMergeAtOnce(int)) from how many segments are allowed per tier (setSegmentsPerTier(double)). This merge policy also does not over-merge (i.e. cascade merges).

    For normal merging, this policy first computes a "budget" of how many segments are allowed to be in the index. If the index is over-budget, then the policy sorts segments by decreasing size (pro-rating by percent deletes), and then finds the least-cost merge. Merge cost is measured by a combination of the "skew" of the merge (size of largest segment divided by smallest segment), total merge size and percent deletes reclaimed, so that merges with lower skew, smaller size and those reclaiming more deletes, are favored.

    If a merge will produce a segment that's larger than setMaxMergedSegmentMB(double), then the policy will merge fewer segments (down to 1 at once, if that one has deletions) to keep the segment size under budget.

    NOTE: this policy freely merges non-adjacent segments; if this is a problem, use LogMergePolicy.

    NOTE: This policy always merges by byte size of the segments, always pro-rates by percent deletes, and does not apply any maximum segment size during forceMerge (unlike LogByteSizeMergePolicy).

    • Constructor Detail

      • TieredMergePolicy

        public TieredMergePolicy()
        Sole constructor, setting all settings to their defaults.
    • Method Detail

      • setMaxMergeAtOnce

        public TieredMergePolicy setMaxMergeAtOnce​(int v)
        Maximum number of segments to be merged at a time during "normal" merging. For explicit merging (eg, forceMerge or forceMergeDeletes was called), see setMaxMergeAtOnceExplicit(int). Default is 10.
      • getMaxMergeAtOnce

        public int getMaxMergeAtOnce()
        Returns the current maxMergeAtOnce setting.
        See Also:
      • setMaxMergeAtOnceExplicit

        public TieredMergePolicy setMaxMergeAtOnceExplicit​(int v)
        Maximum number of segments to be merged at a time, during forceMerge or forceMergeDeletes. Default is 30.
      • getMaxMergeAtOnceExplicit

        public int getMaxMergeAtOnceExplicit()
        Returns the current maxMergeAtOnceExplicit setting.
        See Also:
      • setMaxMergedSegmentMB

        public TieredMergePolicy setMaxMergedSegmentMB​(double v)
        Maximum sized segment to produce during normal merging. This setting is approximate: the estimate of the merged segment size is made by summing sizes of to-be-merged segments (compensating for percent deleted docs). Default is 5 GB.
      • getMaxMergedSegmentMB

        public double getMaxMergedSegmentMB()
        Returns the current maxMergedSegmentMB setting.
        See Also:
      • setReclaimDeletesWeight

        public TieredMergePolicy setReclaimDeletesWeight​(double v)
        Controls how aggressively merges that reclaim more deletions are favored. Higher values will more aggressively target merges that reclaim deletions, but be careful not to go so high that way too much merging takes place; a value of 3.0 is probably nearly too high. A value of 0.0 means deletions don't impact merge selection.
      • setFloorSegmentMB

        public TieredMergePolicy setFloorSegmentMB​(double v)
        Segments smaller than this are "rounded up" to this size, ie treated as equal (floor) size for merge selection. This is to prevent frequent flushing of tiny segments from allowing a long tail in the index. Default is 2 MB.
      • getFloorSegmentMB

        public double getFloorSegmentMB()
        Returns the current floorSegmentMB.
        See Also:
      • setForceMergeDeletesPctAllowed

        public TieredMergePolicy setForceMergeDeletesPctAllowed​(double v)
        When forceMergeDeletes is called, we only merge away a segment if its delete percentage is over this threshold. Default is 10%.
      • setSegmentsPerTier

        public TieredMergePolicy setSegmentsPerTier​(double v)
        Sets the allowed number of segments per tier. Smaller values mean more merging but fewer segments.

        NOTE: this value should be >= the setMaxMergeAtOnce(int) otherwise you'll force too much merging to occur.

        Default is 10.0.

      • getSegmentsPerTier

        public double getSegmentsPerTier()
        Returns the current segmentsPerTier setting.

        public MergePolicy.MergeSpecification findMerges​(MergePolicy.MergeTrigger mergeTrigger,
                                                         SegmentInfos infos)
        Description copied from class: MergePolicy
        Determine what set of merge operations are now necessary on the index. IndexWriter calls this whenever there is a change to the segments. This call is always synchronized on the IndexWriter instance so only one thread at a time will call this method.
        Specified by:

        mergeTrigger - the event that triggered the merge
        infos - the total set of segments in the index

        public MergePolicy.MergeSpecification findForcedMerges​(SegmentInfos infos,
                                                               int maxSegmentCount,

        Description copied from class: MergePolicy
        Determine what set of merge operations is necessary in order to merge to <= the specified segment count. IndexWriter calls this when its IndexWriter.forceMerge(int) method is called. This call is always synchronized on the IndexWriter instance so only one thread at a time will call this method.
        Specified by:
        findForcedMerges in class MergePolicy
        infos - the total set of segments in the index
        maxSegmentCount - requested maximum number of segments in the index (currently this is always 1)
        segmentsToMerge - contains the specific SegmentInfo instances that must be merged away. This may be a subset of all SegmentInfos. If the value is True for a given SegmentInfo, that means this segment was an original segment present in the to-be-merged index; else, it was a segment produced by a cascaded merge.
