Subject [jira] Created: (LUCENE-702) Disk full during addIndexes(Directory[]) can corrupt index
Date Sat, 28 Oct 2006 00:09:16 GMT
Disk full during addIndexes(Directory[]) can corrupt index

                 Key: LUCENE-702
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Index
    Affects Versions: 2.1
            Reporter: Michael McCandless
         Assigned To: Michael McCandless

This is a spinoff of LUCENE-555

If the disk fills up during this call then the committed segments file can reference segments
that were not written.  Then the whole index becomes unusable.

Does anyone know of any other cases where disk full could corrupt the index?

I think disk full should worse lose the documents that were "in flight" at the time.  It shouldn't
corrupt the index.
