Hi, we're currently experimenting with LTR reranking on large rerank windows (rerankDocs=1000+). On a >500M documents SolrCloud collection, we were only able to get sub-second response times with FieldValueFeature. Therefore we created a custom feature extractor that matches field values with constant strings to substitute simple SolrFeature usages. Apparently, the response time is now dominated by loading stored fields, more specifically by uncompressing chunks of stored field data.
We're now wondering how many documents LTR can rerank in practice and what the bottlenecks are. Do you guys have any experience using it?
