Subject Re: Master-Slave setup using SolrCloud
Date Wed, 01 Oct 2014 17:01:53 GMT
Actually, the image was captured from SOLR dashboard having following lines:

*Error    SolrCore                  java.lang.NullPointerException*
*Error    SolrDispatchFilter    java.lang.NullPointerException*

We are now on SolrCloud setup completely.
Memory allocated to each SOLR instance is 7GB. I guess it is more than
sufficient for 1 GB index, right?
Indexes are stored as normal, local filesystem.
We are using latest SOLR version, 4.10.0
I am using three caches:
    Query Cache: Size 4096, autoWarmCount 2048
    Filter cache: size 8192, autoWarmCount 4096
    Document cache: size 4096

I think I am setting wrong values from commit maxTime. Just found out
following document:

According to this document, if our requirement is Index-Heavy, Query-Heavy,
then autoSoftCommit should be as long as high (not sure what should be its
value in my case) and hardCommit to 15 seconds (I am using 15 minutes).
Should I change my hard commit interval to 15 minutes?
