Subject RE: solr query gives different numFound upon refreshing
Date Thu, 28 Aug 2014 16:39:28 GMT
Hi Shawn,

Thanks for your reply. 

We did some tests enabling and confirmed that there is not duplicate copy
of our index.  

We have one replica but many times we see three versions on Admin GUI/Overview tab. All three
has different versions and gen. Is that a problem?
Master (Searching)	
Master (Replicable)	
Slave (Searching)	

We constantly see max searcher open exception. The warmup time is 1.5 minutes but the difference
between openedAt date and registeredAt date is at times more than 4-5 minutes. Is the true
searcher time the difference between two dates and not the warmupTime?

openedAt:	2014-08-28T16:17:24.829Z
registeredAt:	2014-08-28T16:21:02.278Z
warmupTime:	65727

Thanks for all help.

A replica out of sync is a possibility, but the most common reason for a
changing numFound is because the overall distributed index has more than
one document with the same uniqueKey value -- different versions of the
same document in more than one shard.

SolrCloud tries really hard to never end up with replicas out of sync,
but either due to highly unusual circumstances or bugs, it could still
