Subject Re: Solr GET requests return quickly, POST requests take very long, why?
Date Mon, 31 Mar 2008 15:08:54 GMT
what app container are you running on?  (jetty? tomcat? resin...)

what version of solr are you running?

In solr -- the request goes through all the same hoops if it is GET or  
POST, so I suspect it is something to do with the container... but  
honestly don't know.
