Subject Re: About solr distributed search

Hi Pengkai,

my experience is based on which holds >700 Mio 
documents, each about 2kb size.

A single Index containing that kind of data should hold below 80 Mio 
documents. In case you have complex queries with lots of facets, 
sorting, function queries then even 50 Mio documents per index could be 
your upper limit. On very fast Hardware and warmed index you might 
deliver results on average within 1 second.

For documents above 5kb in size those numbers might not necessarily be 
the same.

Try to test your documents by creating (NOT COPYING) and index them in 
vast numbers. After every 10 Mio documents test the average response 
time with caches switched off. If the average response time hits your 
threshold, then the number of documents in index is your limit per index.

Scaling up is no problem. AFAIK 20 to 50 indexes should be fine within a 
distributed productive system.

Kind Regards
