Subject Re: Slow query response.

A single query with tens of thousands of terms is very clearly a misuse of
Solr. If it happens to work at all, consider yourself lucky. Are you using
a standard Solr query parser or the terms query parser that lets you write
a raw list of terms to OR.

Are your nodes CPU-bound or I/O-bound during those 50-second intervals? My
bet is that your index does not fit fully in memory, causing lots of I/O to
repeatedly page in portions of the index and probably additional CPU usage
as well.

How many rows are you returning on each query? Are you using all these
terms just to filter a smaller query or to return a large bulk of documents?
