Subject Multiple index.timestamp directories using up disk space
Date Mon, 20 Apr 2015 22:19:10 GMT
Hi All,

We are seeing this problem with solr 4.6 and solr 4.10.3. 
For some reason, solr cloud tries to recover and creates a new index directory - (ex:index.20150420181214550),
while keeping the older index as is. This creates an issues where the disk space fills up
and the shard never ends up recovering.
Usually this requires a manual intervention of  bouncing the instance and wiping the disk
clean to allow for a clean recovery. 

Any ideas on how to prevent solr from creating multiple copies of index directory.
