From Jan Høydahl <>
Subject Re: CloudSolrClient (any version). Find the node your query has connected to.
Date Thu, 23 May 2019 06:54:31 GMT
Try to add & to your request. It will return a section telling exactly
what shards/replicas served that request with counts and all :)

there are in-memory structures that hold pointers to _all_ un-searchable docs (i.e. no new
searchers have been opened since the doc was added/updated) to support real-time get. So if
you’re indexing a _lot_ of docs that internal structure can grow quite large….

it completes. If you can use delete-by-id it’d be better.

on if you can and look for “Leader Initiated Recovery” (not sure that’s the exact phrase,
but you’ll see something very like that). If that’s the case, then one situation we’ve
seen is that a request takes too long to return from a follower. So the sequence looks like

so it’ll go into full recovery. That can sometimes be fixed by simply lengthening the timeout.

going into recovery and we should see if we can fix that.

significant work was done to make recovery less likely.

We have turned off soft and autoCommits in the solrconfig.xml.

Solr operation.  Without it, the transaction logs will grow out of control.  In addition to
taking a lot of disk space, that will cause a Solr restart to happen VERY slowly.  Note that
a hard commit with openSearcher set to false will be VERY fast -- doing them frequently is
usually not a problem for performance.  Sample configs in recent Solr versions ship with autoCommit
set to 15 seconds and openSearcher set to false.
