Subject advice on failover setup
Date Wed, 14 Oct 2009 19:48:26 GMT
Hi folks,

I'm tasked with designing a failover architecture for our new Solr
server. I've read the Replication section in the docs
( and I need some
clarification/insight. My questions:

1.	Is there such a thing as "master/master" replication?
2.	If we have one master and one slave server, and the master goes
down, does the slave automatically become the master? What's the process
for brining the server back up and getting the two back in sync? Is it a
manual process always?
3.	We're running Solr inside Tomcat on Windows currently. Any
suggestions for a load balancer that will automatically switch to the
alternate server if one goes down?

Thanks in advance,
