Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2586) example work & logs directories needed?
Date Sat, 11 Jun 2011 16:08:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-2586?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13047933#comment-13047933

Yonik Seeley commented on SOLR-2586:
------------------------------------

bq. If people actually run it in place in a production setting, even if tweaked, I think we
haven't done enough to tell people not to.

I wouldn't go that far... if we don't provide something that can be easily tweaked to run
in production, then we should.
Solr is supposed to be a server, not just a war file.  Given all of the bugs we've hit with
both tomcat and jetty, using the jetty we provide, including stuff like the connector configuration,
thread pool configuration, etc, is probably the safest option one can choose.

IMO, what's needed is a "what you should consider changing to run this in production" document.

> Firstly, what prompted this issue was me wanting to use a git solr mirror but finding
that git's lack of empty-directory support made the "example" ant task fail. This task requires
examples/work to be in place so that it can delete its contents. Fixing this was a simple
matter of adding:
> {code:xml}
> <mkdir dir="${example}/work" /><!-- in case not there -->
> {code}
> Right before the delete task.
> But then it occurred to me, why even have a "work" directory since Jetty will apparently
use a temp directory instead. -- try for yourself (stdout snippet):
> bq. 2011-06-11 00:51:26.177:INFO::Extract file:/SmileyDev/Search/lucene-solr/solr/example/webapps/solr.war
to /var/folders/zo/zoQJvqc9E0076p0THiri+k+++TI/-Tmp-/Jetty_0_0_0_0_8983_solr.war__solr__k1kf17/webapp
> On my Mac, this same directory was used for multiple runs, so somehow Jetty or the VM
figures out how to reuse it.
> Since this "example" setup isn't a *real* installation -- it's just for demonstration,
arguably it should not contain what it doesn't need.  Likewise, perhaps the empty example/logs
directory should be deleted. It's not used by default any way.
