I'd like to understand how indexes are used with search.
I've found some info
how a search works
but that's not very precise.
Suppose there is a search like (&(attr1=value1)(attr2=value2)),
attr1 and attr2 are indexed.
As far as I understand, this search fetches objectIDs from the index
on attr1, than the objectIDs from the index on attr2, than,
according to operation "and" ("&"), objectIDs that present in
BOTH sets are determined (using some set-intersection algorithm).
When the search is "or" (|(...)(...)), the objectIDs from both sets
are joined and duplicates are removed (using some set-union
If there is no index on attribute, the resulting objectID set is
determined by bare iterate-and-compare on all the objects, or so.
Am I right?
Could anyone advice some docs on this?
