Subject Re: Urgent help on solr optimisation issue !!

/clarification/ ... expungeDeletes will merge every segment *touched by the current commit*
that has a deleted document.

    Erick, on 6.0.1, optimize with maxSegments only merges down to the specified number. E.g.,
given an index with 75 segments, optimize with maxSegments=74 will only merge 2 segments leaving
74 segments. It will choose a segment to merge that has deleted documents, but does not merge
every segment with deleted documents.
    I think you are thinking about the expungeDeletes parameter on the commit request. That
will merge every segment that has a deleted document.

        This isn’t quite right. Solr will rewrite _all_ segments that have _any_ deleted
documents in them when optimizing, even one. Given your description, I’d guess that all
your segments will have deleted documents, so even if you do specify maxSegments on the optimize
command, the entire index will be rewritten.
        You’re in a bind, see:
You have this one massive segment and it will _not_ be merged until it’s almost all deleted
documents, see the link above for a fuller explanation.
        Prior to Solr 7.5 you don’t have many options except to re-index and _not_ optimize.
So if possible I’d reindex from scratch into a new collection and do not optimize. Or restructure
your process such that you can optimize in a quiet period when little indexing is going on.
