Yokozuna indexes too slow

Hello Ilyas, I’ve got a few questions for you to help diagnose the performance problem.

* What Riak version are you running?

* Are you using the default solrconfig on the index, or a custom configuration?

* You say that there is a 200x slow down when Yokozuna indexing is enabled. Do you have any specific numbers? A graph would be helpful if you can generate one.

* When you say that Yokozuna takes up 100% of one core, have you been able to narrow that down to specific process within Yokozuna or Riak? Using “riak-admin top” might help here.

* Can you provide your JVM configuration (heap settings, etc.)?

When I store data to the database (up to 1 000 000 keys) without indexes, everything happens very quickly. If I create an index for yokozuna and do the same, the store rate decreases greatly (200 times). The process yokozuna takes up 100% of the time one core of CPU, other cores are not loaded. Keys are short strings (16 symbols), values are json strings (length is about 200 characters).
