Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-9818) Solr admin UI rapidly retries any request(s) if it loses connection with the server
Date Wed, 07 Dec 2016 07:02:58 GMT


Mark Miller commented on SOLR-9818:

+1, not great behavior. A lot of these commands are not idempotent and the browser doesn't
know what happened depending on the fail.

> It seems that whenever the Solr admin UI loses connection with the server, be the reason
that the server is too slow to answer or that it's gone away completely, it starts hammering
the server with the previous request until it gets a success response, it seems. That can
be especially bad if the last attempted action was something like collection reload with a
SolrCloud instance. The admin UI will quickly add hundreds of reload commands to overseer/collection-queue-work,
which may essentially cause the replicas to get overloaded when they're trying to handle all
the reload commands.
> I believe the UI should never retry the previous command blindly when the connection
is lost, but instead just ping the server until it responds again.
> Steps to reproduce:
> 1.) Fire up Solr
> 2.) Open the admin UI in browser
> 3.) Open a web console in the browser to see the requests it sends
> 4.) Stop solr
> 5.) Try an action in the admin UI
> 6.) Observe the web console in browser quickly fill up with repeats of the originally
attempted request
