Noble Paul commented on SOLR-1175:

two commands are added 'disableReplication' and 'enableReplication'

> In an environment where one master and several slaves are deployed, it usually takes
more effort to discover all the slaves and disable replication on slave side (which is available
right now), and it would be much easier to disable it on master instance (when, for example,
there is a need to rebuild the index, yet search has to continue). The following is the original
email describing a scenario when this feature is needed.
> Hi,
> Occasionally, we want to build our indexes from scratch, and during this period we want
our search continue to work. Here are the steps that I think will do it
> 1. on all slaves: disable replication
> 2. on master: stop the server
> 3. on master: delete all the documents
> 4. on master: restart the server
> 5. on master: index all documents
> 6. on slaves: enable replication
> The only problem is: step 1 and 6. We may schedule any time to rebuild indexes and it
is an automated process. It is possible to let the master to disable replication on all slaves,
but then we have to discover all the slaves automatically, also exceptions may happen, e.g.
a slave may be down at the time and then restarted later on. Anyhow it becomes an unreliable
process. So I am thinking of somehow disabling replication on the master side during reindex,
i.e. set a state on master so that any request for replication will be ignored. That all the
steps described above will be on master side only.
> Is that possible?
> By the way, I am talking about solr 1.4. I looked at how 1.3 works, and noticed that
in 1.3 there is a way to disable replication on master side: shutdown rsyncd, so I guess it
would be nice to have something equivalent in solr 1.4.
