Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3141) Deprecate OPTIMIZE command in Solr
Date Mon, 20 Feb 2012 00:10:36 GMT


Uwe Schindler commented on SOLR-3141:

bq. I doubt it. An dhow did they find the command in the first place?

By copying one of those "shiny" code examples I posted!

Just to come back to programmers that should have read the documentation, but in fact they
did not. The best example from the above list is []. Drupal is
one of the most often used CMS systems (I just mention that your company also uses it for
their home page) and its installed on thousands of servers. And this tool also contains a
full text search engine (maybe your company is not using that one), but this one called commit
and optimize after every update (until they fixed it). Isn't that funny. In fact Drupal users
are a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge majority that dont know what their system is doing under
the hood and largely depend on the fact that PHP programmers like the Drupal ones dont call
optimize just because it's called optimize.

> 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?
