Subject Re: solr taking too long to update a document
Date Thu, 02 Feb 2012 13:49:27 GMT
The problem is that in order to make the changes visible to the user you
have to issue a commit. If you commit with every user change (I assume you
may have concurrent users) you may have many commits per second. That's too
much for Solr, as each commit will flush a new segment, reopen an index
searcher (warm it), may also cause background merges. Also, if you are
updating documents in the slave server (and committing), next time the
replication occurs, the index may need to be downloaded completely from the
master (instead of just the changed segments) and if this occurs, the
replication process will need to reload the core (instead of just
committing). This will cause the replication to be much slower.
I don't think this is a good approach for your case. You could take a look
at the NRT (soft commit) stuff or to the real time get, those are on trunk
and don't get along very well with master-slave architectures.
