Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-1293) Support for large no:of cores and faster loading/unloading of cores

Erick Erickson commented on SOLR-1293:
--------------------------------------

Well, I don't think the use-case I'm working on needs an API or command-line tools, so I probably
won't be working on it. I'd be glad to commit it in if someone else wanted to do it.

> Solr , currently ,is not very suitable for a large no:of homogeneous cores where you
require fast/frequent loading/unloading of cores . usually a core is required to be loaded
just to fire a search query or to just index one document
> The requirements of such a system are.
> * Very efficient loading of cores . Solr cannot afford to read and parse and create Schema,
SolrConfig Objects for each core each time the core has to be loaded ( SOLR-919 , SOLR-920)
> * START STOP core . Currently it is only possible to unload a core (SOLR-880)
> * Automatic loading of cores . If a core is present and it is not loaded and a request
comes for that load it automatically before serving up a request
> * As there are a large no:of cores , all the cores cannot be kept loaded always. There
has to be an upper limit beyond which we need to unload a few cores (probably the least recently
used ones)
> * Automatic allotment of dataDir for cores. If the no:of cores is too high al the cores'
dataDirs cannot live in the same dir. There is an upper limit on the no:of dirs you can create
in a unix dir w/o affecting performance
