Subject Re: Use of Solr as primary store for search engine
Date Sun, 08 Jul 2012 04:50:54 GMT
For the search results we actually put the small amount of data in the core.

Once someone clicks the results and we need to go to the item to
display the detailed results, we create another core with a stored XML
string field and an ID. The ID is indexable, and the string field is
only stored.

So we have:

productsearch core
product core

This is in production and working fantastic for the last 4 months.

Our index is about 3M records.
