Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3141) Deprecate OPTIMIZE command in Solr
Date Mon, 20 Feb 2012 13:02:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-3141?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13211825#comment-13211825
] 

Jan Høydahl commented on SOLR-3141:
-----------------------------------

I think 4.0 is a good train in which to do this rename, when people will anyway take a thorough
new look at all the changes, and most will hopefully discover that they do *not* need forceMerge
even if they used optimize before. And I agree, in 4.x, "optimize" should not be a silent
NOOP, but instead yell loudly in the logs.

Perhaps an official migration guide on the CMS would be helpful too when 4.0 hits the road.
Such a guide would be more in-depth than the upgrading notes in CHANGES. We could have a paragraph
about optimize/forceMerge, and another paragraph about softCommit/commitWithin as preferred
to explicit commit, which is also a huge mistake many people do, they do over-committing!

> Background: LUCENE-3454 renames optimize() as forceMerge(). Please read that issue first.
> Now that optimize() is rarely necessary anymore, and renamed in Lucene APIs, what should
be done with Solr's ancient optimize command?
