Subject Re: Question about "No registered leader" error
Date Thu, 19 Sep 2019 06:50:13 GMT
@Shawn @Erick Thanks for your kindle help!

No OOM log and I confirm there was no OOM happened.

My ZK ticktime is set to 5000, so 5000*20 = 100s > 60s, and I checked solr code: the leader
waiting time: 4000ms is a const variable, is not configurable. (why it isn't a configurable

My solr version is 7.3.1, xmx = 30000MB (via solr UI, peak memory is 22GB)
I have already used CMS GC tuning (param has a little difference from your wiki page).

I will try the following advice:

  *   lower heap size
  *   turn to G1 (the same param as wiki)
  *   try to restart one SOLR node when this error happens.

Thanks again.

A followup.  I was thinking about the interactions here.  It looks like
Solr only waits four seconds for the leader election, and both of the
pauses you mentioned are longer than that.

Four seconds is probably too short a time to wait, and I do not think
that timeout is configurable anywhere.

That question will be important.  If you already have our CMS GC tuning,
switching to G1 probably is not going to solve this.  Lowering the max
heap might be the only viable solution in that case, and depending on
what you're dealing with, it will either be impossible or it will
require more servers.
