The Test Index interface provides a secluded environment for the execution
of test-queries over indexes.
An index can be repeatedly changed and executed over a size-limited dataset,
for a limited time duration, providing its users with immediate execution results
and saving them the need to save the index first and wait for its execution
over huge datasets in a live environment.
In its folded form, the interface is a floating bar at the bottom of the page, to keep it
available when the index page is scrolled up and down.
When expanded, the interface provides an instant testing environment for additions and
modifications in the index maps and configuration.
- Testing an index does not require saving it first, so changes can be easily made,
tested, and either kept or unmade, in testing as well as production environments.
- Indexes created while running test queries are dropped after the test.
- Corax indexes created while running
testing queries will not train compression dictionaries.
Folded: Test Index Bar
- Scan limit
Enter the maximum number of items that the index will process, from 1 to 10,000.
- Time limit
Enter the maximum amount of time for the test execution, in seconds.
Default: 15 seconds
- Run test
Click to run the test and expand the test bar to display the results.
- Expand test bar
Click to expand the test bar, displaying the index query editor and the result tabs.
Expanded: Test Index Interface
- Query editor
Initially, the editor displays a simple query over the index.
You can edit the query so it applies any logic that would help you
understand the results and improve the index, e.g. make the query
display only a selected subset of the index results.
- Fold interface
Click to fold the test interface back to its floating bar form.
Click to select which columns to display.
- Results tab
Click to display query results.
Index entries tab
Click to view the values of document properties retrieved by the query.
Index Entries Tab
Map results tab
Click to view mapped index parameters.
Map Results Tab
Map Reduce Results
When the index includes a Map Reduce section, the test will display
the results of this section in a Reduce Results tab.
