Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-844) A SolrServer impl to front-end multiple urls
Date Mon, 10 Nov 2008 04:08:44 GMT


Noble Paul commented on SOLR-844:

bq.Firstly there are about a thousand ways you can handle load balancing already out there
on the backend side (both hardware and software)
Yes , But each extra layer introduces its own overhead. (in latency , hardware and maintenance).
Moreover we are introducing a single point of failure.

This is similar to a MySql driver providing a feature to connect to multiple servers (maters/slaves)
. it does round-robin at the driver side and provide automatic failover.

bq.Secondly doing it on the client side means you will need to track ALL the clients who use
your service

Let us discuss how best this can be handled. This is just an extension of what we already
have , (a thin wrapper).

> Currently a {{CommonsHttpSolrServer}} can talk to only one server. This demands that
the user have a LoadBalancer or do the roundrobin on their own. We must have a {{MultiCommonsHttpSolrServer}}
which must automatically do a round-robin between multiple hosts. This can be backed by the
> This can have the following other features
> * Automatic failover
> * Optionally take in  a file /url containing the the urls of servers so that the server
list can be automatically updated  by periodically loading the config
> * Support for adding removing servers during runtime
