Ishan Chattopadhyaya commented on SOLR-8687:

My stress test is here:

>            Reporter: Ishan Chattopadhyaya
> I am facing a problem with stress testing SOLR-5944, even though I think this problem
persists in Solr even without my changes.
> The symptom is that during a stress test (similar to TestStressReorder), RTG gets a document
which is older version than that of the last acknowledged write.

> * Before line 1, there was an update (say id=2) which was in ulog's map. Maps are, say,
`map={2=LogPtr(1234)}, prevMap={...}, prevMap2={...}`
> * Due to line 4 (ulog.preSoftCommit()), the maps were rotated. Now, the id=2 is in prevMap:
`map={}, prevMap={2=LogPtr(1234)}, prevMap2={...}`. Till now RTG for id=2 will work.
> * Due to line 5, a new searcher is due to be opened. But this is asynchronous, and lets
assume this doesn't complete before few more lines are executed.
> * Due to line 6 (ulog.postSoftCommit()), the previous maps are cleared out. Now the maps
are: `map={}, prevMap=null, prevMap2=null`
> * If there's an RTG for id=2, it will not work from the ulog's maps, so it will fall
through to be searched using the last searcher. But, the searcher due to be opened in line
5 hasn't yet been opened. In this case, the returned document will be whatever version of
id=2 that was present in the previous searcher.
> Can someone please confirm if this is a potential problem? If so, any suggestions for
a fix, please? I tried opening a ulog.openRealtimeSearcher() in the above synchronized block,
but the problem still persists, but I haven't looked into why that could be.
