Hi, I am seeing that doc = index['mykey'] index.update 'mykey', doc is about 10 times slower than doc = Document.new doc['id'] = 'mykey' index << doc It looks like #update is _much_ slower that #<<. Is it as expected? Sergei.

When you use update it has to lookup the document with the same id. It then checks each field in the document to see which fields have been changed and updates then. It deletes the old document and adds the new one. This also means that it has to open an IndexReader and then closes it and opens an IndexWriter. This is a lot of processing. If you want fast update then you need to do it yourself. Just adding a document doesn't even open and IndexReader so it is going to be faster then updating a document no matter how you do it. The fastest way to update documents is in a batch. So if you want to update 10 documents., delete all 10 together, then add the 10 updated documents together. Hope that helps, Dave
