Interface MassIndexer


  • public interface MassIndexer
    A MassIndexer is useful to rebuild the indexes from the data contained in the database. This process is expensive: all indexed entities and their indexedEmbedded properties are scrolled from database.

    • Method Detail

      • type

        MassIndexerFilteringTypeStep type​(Class<?> type)
        Define a filter on a given type for entities to be re-indexed
        Parameters:
        type - The type on which the filter will be applied
        Returns:
        The step allowing to define the filter
      • typesToIndexInParallel

        MassIndexer typesToIndexInParallel​(int threadsToIndexObjects)
        Sets the number of entity types to be indexed in parallel.

        Defaults to 1.

        Parameters:
        threadsToIndexObjects - number of entity types to be indexed in parallel
        Returns:
        this for method chaining
      • threadsToLoadObjects

        MassIndexer threadsToLoadObjects​(int numberOfThreads)
        Sets the number of threads to be used to load the root entities.
        Parameters:
        numberOfThreads - the number of threads
        Returns:
        this for method chaining
      • batchSizeToLoadObjects

        MassIndexer batchSizeToLoadObjects​(int batchSize)
        Sets the batch size used to load the root entities.
        Parameters:
        batchSize - the batch size
        Returns:
        this for method chaining
      • cacheMode

        MassIndexer cacheMode​(CacheMode cacheMode)
        Sets the cache interaction mode for the data loading tasks.

        Defaults to CacheMode.IGNORE.

        Parameters:
        cacheMode - the cache interaction mode
        Returns:
        this for method chaining
      • mergeSegmentsOnFinish

        MassIndexer mergeSegmentsOnFinish​(boolean enable)
        Merges each index into a single segment after indexing.

        Defaults to false.

        Parameters:
        enable - true to enable this operation, false to disable it.
        Returns:
        this for method chaining
      • mergeSegmentsAfterPurge

        MassIndexer mergeSegmentsAfterPurge​(boolean enable)
        Merges each index into a single segment after the initial index purge, just before indexing.

        Defaults to true.

        This setting has no effect if purgeAllOnStart is set to false.

        Parameters:
        enable - true to enable this operation, false to disable it.
        Returns:
        this for method chaining
      • dropAndCreateSchemaOnStart

        MassIndexer dropAndCreateSchemaOnStart​(boolean dropAndCreateSchema)
        Drops the indexes and their schema (if they exist) and re-creates them before indexing.

        Indexes will be unavailable for a short time during the dropping and re-creation, so this should only be used when failures of concurrent operations on the indexes (automatic indexing, ...) are acceptable.

        This should be used when the existing schema is known to be obsolete, for example when the Hibernate Search mapping changed and some fields now have a different type, a different analyzer, new capabilities (projectable, ...), etc.

        This may also be used when the schema is up-to-date, since it can be faster than a purge on large indexes.

        Defaults to false.

        Parameters:
        dropAndCreateSchema - if true the indexes and their schema will be dropped then re-created before starting the indexing
        Returns:
        this for method chaining
      • purgeAllOnStart

        MassIndexer purgeAllOnStart​(boolean purgeAll)
        Removes all entities from the indexes before indexing.

        Set this to false only if you know there are no entities in the indexes: otherwise search results may be duplicated.

        Defaults to true.

        Parameters:
        purgeAll - if true all entities will be removed from the indexes before starting the indexing
        Returns:
        this for method chaining
      • limitIndexedObjectsTo

        @Incubating
        MassIndexer limitIndexedObjectsTo​(long maximum)
        Stops indexing after having indexed a set amount of objects.

        As a results the indexes will not be consistent with the database: use only for testing on an (undefined) subset of database data.

        Parameters:
        maximum - the maximum number of objects to index
        Returns:
        this for method chaining
      • startAndWait

        void startAndWait()
                   throws InterruptedException
        Starts the indexing process, and then block until it's finished.

        May only be called once.

        Throws:
        InterruptedException - if the current thread is interrupted while waiting.
      • idFetchSize

        MassIndexer idFetchSize​(int idFetchSize)
        Specifies the fetch size to be used when loading primary keys if objects to be indexed.

        Some databases accept special values, for example MySQL might benefit from using Integer.MIN_VALUE otherwise it will attempt to preload everything in memory.

        Parameters:
        idFetchSize - the fetch size to be used when loading primary keys
        Returns:
        this for method chaining
      • transactionTimeout

        MassIndexer transactionTimeout​(int timeoutInSeconds)
        Timeout of transactions for loading ids and entities to be re-indexed.

        Specify a timeout which is long enough to load and index all entities of the type with the most instances, taking into account the configured batch size and number of threads to load objects.

        Only supported in JTA-compatible environments.

        Parameters:
        timeoutInSeconds - the transaction timeout in seconds; If no value is given, the global default timeout of the JTA environment applies.
        Returns:
        this for method chaining
      • monitor

        MassIndexer monitor​(MassIndexingMonitor monitor)
        Sets the MassIndexingMonitor.

        The default monitor just logs the progress.

        Parameters:
        monitor - The monitor that will track mass indexing progress.
        Returns:
        this for method chaining
