Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3319) Improve DataImportHandler status response
Date Fri, 06 Apr 2012 14:57:23 GMT


Shawn Heisey commented on SOLR-3319:

Here are some general ideas, preliminary because I have not taken a close look at the code
yet.  For reference, here is a completed status response on a full-import from 3.5.0:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<lst name="responseHeader">
  <int name="status">0</int>
  <int name="QTime">0</int>
<lst name="initArgs">
  <lst name="defaults">
    <str name="config">dih-config.xml</str>
<str name="status">idle</str>
<str name="importResponse"/>
<lst name="statusMessages">
  <str name="Total Requests made to DataSource">1</str>
  <str name="Total Rows Fetched">11287894</str>
  <str name="Total Documents Skipped">0</str>
  <str name="Full Dump Started">2012-04-03 17:38:01</str>
  <str name="">Indexing completed. Added/Updated: 11287894 documents. Deleted 0 documents.</str>
  <str name="Committed">2012-04-03 20:16:32</str>
  <str name="Total Documents Processed">11287894</str>
  <str name="Time taken ">2:38:31.314</str>
<str name="WARNING">This response format is experimental.  It is likely to change in
the future.</str>

I was thinking it might be a good idea to have two response sections in addition to the echoParams
section already mentioned - one for a human readable response and one for a relatively terse
machine readable response.  The human readable version would be fairly open to change, and
could include extra verbiage so it's very understandable for a person.

The machine readable version would have more elements, each of which is very simple, probably
just a numeric value or a true/false indicator.  A design decision needs to be made early
- do we include all elements in every response (with the value set to zero, blank, or false),
even if they don't apply to the current status?  My first instinct is to include all elements,
but maybe that's wrong.

> The DataImportHandler has some oddities and inconsistencies in its status response that
make it difficult to write code that parses DIH status, especially if both full-import and
delta-import are required.  See SOLR-2729.
> I would like to have a discussion where we come up with a well-defined and consistent
format that can be used programatically as well as be human readable, and then I can implement
it, or someone else can if they really want to.  I think it would be very useful if the status
response included all parameters that went into the import request, like echoParams in the
query interface.
