Subject expert question about SolrReplication
Date Fri, 01 Feb 2013 09:13:32 GMT
A question to the experts,

why is the replicated index copied from its temporary location (index.xxxxxxxxx)
to the real index directory and NOT moved?
Copying over 100s of gigs takes some time, moving is just changing the file system link.

Also, instead of first deleting the old index, why not
- moving the file links of old index to "index.xxxxx.old"
- moving the file links of new index to "index"
- and finally after new searcher is up, deleting "index.xxxxx.old"

Any answers?
