Limits about index
In one index, logical limits in Senna are below.
- max record count : 268,435,455
- max lexicon count : 268,435,455
- max index size : 256GByte
(Actually, other conditions may interfere for Senna to attain these limits.)
use in multi-process/multi-thread
You cannot 'update' one index at a time in multi-process/multi-thread environments. If you do so, you have to update with exclusive access control.
SEN_SPLIT_ALPHA,DIGIT,SYMBOL options have no effect in absense of SEN_INDEX_NORLALIZE.
About sen_records_find, sen_records_at
You cannot get valid results with sen_records_next after you use sen_records_find or sen_records_at. You have to execute sen_records_rewind and initialize the cursor.
About opentag and closetag in snippet API
If you use snippet functions, you cannot modify data in a buffer which is passed as opentag or closetag before you call sen_snip_close.
About sen_sel_partial option, sen_sym_suffix_search
In below case, you cannot execute 'suffix' search in searching with sen_sel_search or sen_sym_suffix_search.
- alphabet, number, symbol in euc-jp/sjis/utf-8 text
- index is created with SEN_INDEX_DELIMTED option.
Because, English words generally vary in it's suffix but prefix.
Indexes in Windows and Linux are different.
Now, you cannot use Senna with AIO/DIO.
Senna has a user level cache with AIO/DIO which is implemented in Linux 2.6. But, this feature is not stable. Segmentation fault may occur.
