Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1044) Behavior on hard power shutdown
Date Mon, 26 Nov 2007 18:14:43 GMT

Doug Cutting commented on LUCENE-1044:
--------------------------------------

> I found out however that delaying the syncs (but intending to sync) also
means keeping the file handles open [...]

Not necessarily.  You could just queue the file names for sync, close them, and then have
the background thread open, sync and close them.  The close could trigger the OS to sync things
faster in the background.  Then the open/sync/close could mostly be a no-op.  Might be worth
a try.

> When indexing a large number of documents, upon a hard power failure  (e.g. pull the
power cord), the index seems to get corrupted. We start a Java application as an Windows Service,
and feed it documents. In some cases (after an index size of 1.7GB, with 30-40 index segment
.cfs files) , the following is observed.
> The 'segments' file contains only zeros. Its size is 265 bytes - all bytes are zeros.
> The 'deleted' file also contains only zeros. Its size is 85 bytes - all bytes are zeros.
> Before corruption, the segments file and deleted file appear to be correct. After this
corruption, the index is corrupted and lost.
> This is a problem observed in Lucene 1.4.3. We are not able to upgrade our customer deployments
to 1.9 or later version, but would be happy to back-port a patch, if the patch is small enough
and if this problem is already solved.
