Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3088) create shard placeholders
Date Wed, 08 Feb 2012 19:22:59 GMT


Yonik Seeley commented on SOLR-3088:

The mental model I've had is that numShards is just an optional helper at collection creation
time, and is largely meaningless after that point.  clusterstate is the system of record and
contains all of the shards in a collection.
When shards are split in the future there will be a period of time when both the pre-split
shard and the resulting post-split shards will coexist and overlap, and numShards as a collection
property (rather than just a creation property) doesn't make sense.
If one is going to do custom sharding, then one would not use numShards, but simply add shards
as needed (an example is shard-by-date, adding a new shard every week).
