Subject Re: Solr configuration to enable indexing/searching webapp log files
Date Thu, 29 Apr 2010 17:58:30 GMT
Good question, +1 on finding answer, my take ...

Depending on how large of log files you are talking about it might be better off to do this
w/ HDFS / Hadoop (and a script language like Pig) (or Amazon EMR)

Theoretically you could split the logs to fields, use a dataimporter and search / sort w/
something like LineEntityProcessor.

I've tried to use Solr as a log analytics tool (before dataimporthandler) and it was not worth
the disk space or practical but I'd love to hear otherwise.  In general you could flush daily
logs to an index but working w/ the data in another context if you had to seems better fit
for HDFS use (I think).
