Subject RE: Loading data to SOLR first time ( taking too long)
Date Tue, 25 Oct 2011 20:02:54 GMT
My goodness.  We do 4 million in about 1/2 HOUR (7+ million in 40 minutes).

First question:  Are you somehow forcing Solr to do a commit for each and every record?  If
so, that way leads to the house of PAIN.

The thing to do next, I suppose, might be to try and figure out whether the issue is in Solr
proper, or in the database you are importing from.

What does your query against your database look like?
How many fields do you have per record (we have around 30, counting copyField destinations)

Using a performance monitoring tool, try and find out the CPU utilization, memory utilization,
page write rates and physical disk drive queue lengths to narrow down which of the two systems
are having the problem (assuming your database is not on the same machine as Solr!)

Subject: Loading data to SOLR first time ( taking too long)


I recently started working on SOLR and loaded approximately 4 million
records to the solr using DataImportHandler. It took 5 days to complete
this process.


Can you please suggest how this can be improved? I would like this to be
done in less than 6 hrs.
