Subject Spontaneous view rebuild after view compaction?
Date Wed, 13 Apr 2011 13:07:35 GMT
I've had my largest view spontaneously decide to rebuild itself from scratch a couple of times
now, starting immediately after a view compaction finishes.

I seem to remember someone pointing at a ticket for this problem a while ago but searching
around in Jira I couldn't find it. Does it ring any bells with anyone?

I have a suspicion I'm hitting some kind of race condition whereby if the view is queried
while the compaction process is attempting to swap the files over it just triggers a fresh
build. I've turned off my regular view touching for the moment and I'm going to see if it
happens again but as my view takes over a day to build it's getting pretty frustrating so
any suggestions would be really appreciated.
