    Description

      When the index sorting is defined a lot of optimizations are disabled during the merge. For instance the bulk merge of the compressing stored fields is disabled since documents are not merged sequentially. Though it can happen that index sorting is enabled but the index is already in sorted order (the sort field is not filled or filled with the same value for all documents). In such case we can detect that the sort is not needed and activate the merge optimization.
