No, this is how long the system will wait on startup to see all the known replicas for a shard
show up. This is to be sure they all participate in the election and the best candidate is
chosen. This is protection against bringing back a stale shard on a cluster restart and having
it become leader right off.

This makes it so that node names are not based on the address of the node, but on a generic
core_nodename_n (or something like that). When a different machine takes over serving that
core, things will be much less confusing.

I think this might be dead - i see a bit of code around picking it up, but nothing that does
anything with it.

Future param for SolrCloud or a way for users to mark nodes for their own use.

For SolrCloud - let's you specifically label a name rather than have them generated for you
(either by address or the generic names from the genericCoreNodeNames setting. This let's
you allow a different machine to take over for a core that already has a node name and was
served from a different machine.

Seems to be the default log level the UI will use if you don't want it to be WARN.
