Subject Re: Tuning solr for large index with rapid writes

That works. I try to monitor the number of 0-hit
queries when I generate a test set on the theory that
those are _usually_ groups of random terms I've
selected that aren't a good model. So it's often
a sequence like "generate my list, see which
ones give 0 results and remove them". Rinse,

Like you said, imperfect but _loads_ better than
trying to create them without real user queries
as guidance...
