Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-1949) overwrite document fails if Solr index is not optimized
Date Fri, 02 Jul 2010 23:05:49 GMT


Hoss Man commented on SOLR-1949:

1) In the future, please don't use jira to ask questions about odd behavior you are seeing
--  that is what the solr-user mailing list is for.  as a general rule you should only open
a "Bug" in Jira issue if you have already asked a question on the solr-user mailing list and
have verified that there isn't a mistake/missunderstanding in your config.

2) your initial report is inconsistent and makes no sense...

bq. We have field ID as string and uniqueKey, so the update operation overwite documents with
the same ID. 
bq. Remember that documents don't have unique identifiers

...if you do follow up on solr-user, please be more explicit, and clarify exactly what you
are doing (showing us your schema.xml, and some sample documents is pretty much a neccdessity
to make sense of problems like this that don't produce an error message)

>                 URL:
>             Project: Solr
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: update
>    Affects Versions: 1.4
>         Environment: linux centos
>            Reporter: Miguel B.
> Scenario:
> - Solr 1.4 with multicore
> - We have a set of 5.000 source documents that we want to index.
> - We send these set to Solr by SolrJ API and they are added correctly. We have field
ID as string and uniqueKey, so the update operation overwite documents with the same ID. The
result is 4500 unique documents in Solr. Also all documents have an index field that contains
the source repository of each document, we need it because we want to index another sources.
> - After add operation, we send optimization.
> All works fine at this point.  Solr have 4.500 documents at Solr core (and 4.500 max
documents too).
> Now these 5.000 sources documents are updated by users, and a set of them are deleted
(supose, 1000). So, now we want to update our Solr index with these change (unfortunately
our repository doesn't support an incremental approach), the operations are:
>  - At index Solr, delete documents by query  (by the field that contains document source
repository). We use deleteByQuery and commit SolrJ operations.
>  - At this point Solr core have 0 documents (but 4.500 max documents, important!!!)
>  - Now we add to Solr the new version of source documents  (4000). Remember that documents
don't have unique identifiers, supose that unique items are 3000. So when add operation finish
(after commit sended) Solr index must have 3.000 unique items.
> But the result isn't 3.000 unique items, we obtains a random results: 3000, 2980, 2976,
etc. It's a serious problem because we lost documents.
> We have a workaround. At these operations just after delete operation, we send an optimization
to Solr (maxDocuments are updated). After this, we send new documents. By this way the result
is always fine.
> In our tests, we can see that this issue is only when the new documents overwrites documents
that existed in solr.
> Thanks!!
