Subject [jira] [Created] (SOLR-3504) Clearly document the limit for the maximum number of documents in a single index
Date Sun, 03 Jun 2012 21:36:22 GMT
Jack Krupansky created SOLR-3504:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Clearly document the limit for the maximum number of documents in a
single index
                 Key: SOLR-3504
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-3504
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: update
    Affects Versions: 3.6
            Reporter: Jack Krupansky
            Priority: Minor


Although the actual limit to the number of documents supported by a Solr implementation depends
on the number of shards, unless the user is intimately familiar with the implementation of
Lucene, they may not realize that a single Solr index (single shard, single core) is limited
to approximately 2.14 billion documents regardless of their processing power or memory. This
limit should be clearly documented for the Solr user.

Granted, users should be strongly discouraged from attempting to create a single, unsharded
index of that size, but they certainly should have to find out about the Lucene limit by accident.

A subsequent issue will recommend that Solr detect and appropriately report to the user when
and if this limit is hit.
