SOLVED

Query getNodes() Extremely Slow

joshua103us

I am building a query using QueryBuilder and the query returns 32k results.  I am using the following to create an Iterator so that I can index over each result.  

 

Iterator<Node> itr =  query.getResult().getNodes();

 

This line however takes a really long time and is slowing my page down drastically.  How can I speed this up?

In Jackrabbit and Oak the complete execution time of a query always consists of the exucution of the query itself and the retrieval of the results. This is because it's quite common that you're query returns lot of results, but you never retrieve them all, so it is split. And 32k results is quite a number.

I am not in the details, but for me it looks like that this command (especially the query.getResult() part) takes that long because it fetches a good number of results from the repository. And this means not only only loading nodes, but there are also a lot of other acitivites (e.g. validating ACLs, so you only the pages you have at least read access to, etc.).

kind regards,
Jörg

Do you see any warnings in the log-file? (error.log)

So, there is really no way to speed this process up?

Yes, it does Order By

Then this means there is nothing I can do to increase the speed of this function?

When you use "order by", the complete result set must be loaded from the repo in order to get sorted properly. Try to avoid ordering if you don't need it, it can speed up the performance significantly.

QueryBuilder is great fun to use and improve 🙂

Does your query contains search for custom fields you have created ?

When you go inside the /system/console/jmx/com.adobe.granite%3Atype%3DQueryStat do you see your query there ?

 

Thanks,

Peter
