Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-846) IOExeception can cause loss of data due to premature segment deletion
Date Fri, 23 Mar 2007 20:33:32 GMT


Steven Parkes commented on LUCENE-846:

Dang. It used to fail but I've made some updates since then that would change the merge policy
(fancy that) and it's no longer happening.

Let me see if I have a snapshot lying around that has the old code where it still happens.

[As as aside, I've been thinking of looking into svk or brz (or whatever its called) that
would allow me to version control stuff without it going into svn. All of a sudden I can see
why the linux folks like distributed version control ...]

> If you hit an IOException, e.g., disk full, while making a cfs from its constituent parts,
you may not be able to rollback to the before-merge process. This happens via addIndexes.
> I don't have a nice easy test for this; generating IOEs ain't so easy. But it does happen
in the patch for the factored merge policy with the existing tests because the pseudo-randomly
generated IOEs fall in a different place.
