Subject Index "corruption" makes it return a different result
Date Wed, 26 Mar 2008 14:44:37 GMT
Hello all!

I had a problem this week, and I like to share with you all.
My weblogic server that generate my index hrows its logs in a shared 
storage. During my indexing process (SOLR+Lucene), this shared storage 
became 100% full, and everything collapsed (all servers that uses this 
shared storage). But my index (that is generated in the local 
filesystem, just "grabbed" some logs of the server (who knows weblogic 
knows the managed server accesslog, that's the guy) from the buffer (my 
supposition), and put inside my index files! Take a look how my 
"_al1.cfs" became between some binary parts of the file:

2008-03-19    -    02:31:03    -    [ip]    -    POST    -    200    
-    /AcomProductSyncServiceWeb/AcomProductSyncService
2008-03-19    -    02:31:03    -    [ip]    -    POST    -    200    
-    /AcomProductSyncServiceWeb/AcomProductSyncService
2008-03-19    -    02:31:04    -    [ip]    -    POST    -    200    
-    /AcomProductSyncServiceWeb/AcomProductSyncService
2008-03-19    -    02:31:04    -    [ip]    -    POST    -    200    
-    /AcomProductSyncServiceWeb/AcomProductSyncService
2008-03-19    -    02:31:04    -    [ip]    -    POST    -    200    
-    /AcomProductSyncServiceWeb/AcomProductSyncService

The most incredible thing, is that I can open the index without a 
CorruptedIndexException, normally. That's really bad for me, cause the 
application didn't warn about a corrupted index (of course, it is not). 
I can open it with the Luke App, and with this simple code snippet 
accessing directly the lucene index without solr:

        IndexReader indexReader ="C/index/index.2008-03-19"));
        IndexSearcher indexSearcher = new IndexSearcher(indexReader);
        TermQuery termQuery = new TermQuery(new Term("itemId", "680804"));
        Hits hits =;
        Iterator itHits = hits.iterator();
        while (itHits.hasNext()) {
            Hit hit = (Hit);
            Document document = hit.getDocument();
            String itemId = document.getField("itemId").stringValue();

Ok, ok. But, if it's opening, whats my real problem?  Making this little 
search above, the Document that I got, was another one, with other 
information different from the original one that I was looking for (the 
one with the itemId field = 680804). The whole document was another 
document (but a valid document, that I've indexed before). The itemId 
value that I got, the one that was printed from that application above 
was 578340. Wow!!

I can reproduce this error anytime with this code or with luke on this 
corrupted index, but was terrible for me to find the exact point of this 

I've reindexed everything, it solves my problem. But I wants to know if 
someone have any idea why this happened...

Thanks people!
