Subject [jira] [Created] (SOLR-4718) Allow solr.xml to be stored in zookeeper
Date Tue, 16 Apr 2013 16:07:15 GMT
Erick Erickson created SOLR-4718:

             Summary: Allow solr.xml to be stored in zookeeper
                 Key: SOLR-4718
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Schema and Analysis
    Affects Versions: 4.3, 5.0
            Reporter: Erick Erickson
            Assignee: Erick Erickson

So the near-final piece of this puzzle is to make solr.xml be storable in Zookeeper. Code-wise
in terms of Solr, this doesn't look very difficult, I'm working on it now.

More interesting is how to get the configuration into ZK in the first place, enhancements
to ZkCli? Or boostrap-conf? Other? I'm punting on that for this patch.

Second level is how to tell Solr to get the file from ZK. Some possibilities:

1> A system prop, -DzkSolrXmlPath=blah where blah is the path _on zk_ where the file is.
Would require -DzkHost or -DzkRun as well.
  > pros - simple, I can wrap my head around it.
         - easy to script
  > cons - can't run multiple JVMs pointing to different files. Is this really a problem?

2> New solr.xml element. Something like:
     <str name="zkHost">zkurl</str>
     <str name="zkSolrXmlPath">whatever</str>
   Really, this form would hinge on the presence or absence of zkSolrXmlPath. If present,
go up and look for the indicated solr.xml file on ZK. Any properties in the ZK version would
overwrite anything in the local copy.

NOTE: I'm really not very interested in supporting this as an option for old-style solr.xml
unless it's _really_ easy. For instance, what if the local solr.xml is new-style and the one
in ZK is old-style? Or vice-versa? Since old-style is going away, this doesn't seem like it's
worth the effort.

pros - No new mechanisms
cons - once again requires that there be a solr.xml file on each client. Admittedly for installations
that didn't care much about multiple JVMs, it could be a stock file that didn't change...

For now, I'm going to just manually push solr.xml to ZK, then read it based on a sysprop.
That'll get the structure in place while we debate. Not going to check this in until there's
some consensus though.
