Yes I can continue to query after this importer goes down and whilst it running.

The bulk commit is done via a JSON handler in php. There is 121,000 records that need to go
into the index. So this is done in 5000 chunked mySQL retrieve calls and parsing to the data
as required. 

		get record
		create {add doc… } JSON
		Post to CORE/update/json

I stopped doing a hard commit every 1000 records. To see if that was an issue.

the auto commit settings are ::


I’ve pretty much worked out of the drupal schemas for SOLR 4

At one point I thought it could be malformed data, but even reducing the records down to just
the id and title now .. it crashes at the same point. As in the query still works but the
import handler does nothing at all

Tomcat logs seem to indicate no major issues.

There’s not a strange variable that is set to make an upper index limit is there?
