Subject Re: Sending Documents via SolrServer as MapReduce Jobs at Solrj
Date Fri, 05 Jul 2013 21:58:17 GMT
Ok, I know that it is really unnecessary to start a complex design. On the
other hand if your resources and needs are adequate and if you have a
bottleneck at your design it is really a fail not to plan a new design.

We have more than terabytes of data and we have dedicated some developers
at Hadoop and Hbase side. There are many machines at our network
architecture (currently we are making some tests and improvements). Data is
stored as distributed and indexed at SolrCloud as distributed.

However there is a bottleneck at this architecture. Taking from data from
Hbase and sending to SolrCloud is not fast as much as other parts of
system. If we don't resolve that problem and use current architecture I
think that will be a design fault.

That's why I asked this question and it seems reasonable for me. I know
that some people are storing Lucene indexes at Hbase and that is the
correct design for them. Sending data at Solrj with Map Reduce jobs may be
another good thing according to our needs and I think there maybe some
people from community that has tried that or even think about it. Thanks
for the answers.
