   $query as xs:string
) as item()*


This function returns (forest_id, record_count, host_name) tuples where forest_id and host_name identify the target forest of the split input, and record_count is a rough estimate of the number of input key-value pairs in the split.

nsbindings Name space binding declaration.
doc-selector A fully searchable path expression to define document scope for the splits.
query A cts:query specifying the search to perform for the splits.

Usage Notes

The function creates split tuples using a searchable expression and cts:query. The parameters to hadoop:get-splits and hadoop.getSplits determine the documents under consideration in each forest, equivalent to the $expression and $query parameters of cts:search. The function returns an estimate rather than a true count to improve performance.
