Re: Index not being use

Please note "Graph indexes built against newly defined property keys, i.e. property keys that are defined in the same management transaction as the index, are immediately available. Graph indexes built against property keys that are already in use require the execution of a reindex procedure to ensure that the index contains all previously added elements. Until the reindex procedure has completed, the index will not be available." from

You might want to go through the reindex procedure.

Hi folks,

So I created an index like so:

gremlin> graph.tx().rollback()
gremlin> mgmt = graph.openManagement()
gremlin> personid = mgmt.getPropertyKey('personid')
gremlin> mgmt.buildIndex('personid', Vertex.class).addKey(personid).unique().buildCompositeIndex()
gremlin> mgmt.commit()

Then I do a query like so, and it gives me a warning that I should use indexes.  Isn't the index use not implicit?  Do I have to do anything specific for it to use the index I just created?

gremlin> g.V().has('personid','640').out('role').inE('role').has('roletype',eq("director")).outV().values('personid')
13:14:45 WARN  org.janusgraph.graphdb.transaction.StandardJanusGraphTx  - Query requires iterating over all vertices [(personid = 640)]. For better performance, use indexes
