Subject Re: replication without automated polling, just manual trigger?
Date Wed, 15 May 2013 21:56:59 GMT
You can disable polling so that the slave never polls the Master(In Solr
4.3 you can disable it from the Admin interface). . And you can trigger a
replication using the HTTP API or again, use the
Admin interface to trigger a manual replication.
