> The mirroring split policy builds on the remoting split policy, treating each sub-index
as a mirror of the super-index (upon which the split writer is built). The motivation for
this policy is to allow a given index to be available on multiple nodes (that define a cluster),
which helps to load-balance search requests across the nodes in that cluster, not to mention
implement fail-over for index searchers.
> Unlike other mirroring solutions for Lucene, this approach gives users the ability to
(a) pick and choose the types of directories underlying the mirror, and (b) add/remove mirrors
on the fly. However, note that the latter capability has not yet been implemented, although
it will be soon.
