[Xapian-discuss] Indexing speed benchmark - Xapian, Solr

I came across this benchmark between Xapian & Solr:


According to the benchmark, a doc set that took Solr 34 min to index took Xapian 7 hours. Solr's index is also much smaller - 2.5GB to Xapian's 8.9GB.

I'm new to Xapian. Just wondering if results like these are typical? Is indexing speed & size a known issue in Xapian? Or is there some other explanation for the big difference between the Solr & Xapian results?
