Subject [jira] [Created] (SOLR-11292) Querying against an alias can lead to incorrect routing
Date Sun, 27 Aug 2017 13:23:00 GMT
Varun Thacker created SOLR-11292:

             Summary: Querying against an alias can lead to incorrect routing
                 Key: SOLR-11292
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: Public (Default Security Level. Issues are Public)
            Reporter: Varun Thacker

collection1 has 2 shards and 1 replica
collection2 has 8 shards and 1 replica

I have 8 nodes so collection2 is spread across all 8 , while collection1 is hosted by two

If we create an alias called "collection1" and point it to "collection2".

Querying against the alias "collection1" works as expected but what I noticed was the top
level queries would only hit 2 out of the 8 JVMs when querying using SolrJ

It turns out that SolrJ is using the state.json of collection1 ( the actual collection ) and
routing queries to only those nodes.

There are two negatives to this:
 - If those two nodes are down all queries fail.
 - Top level queries are only routed to those two nodes thus causing a skew in the top level

The obvious solution would be to use the state.json file of the underlying collection that
the alias is pointing to  . But if we have the alias pointing to multiple collections then
this might get tricky?
