Subject Re: Very very large scale Solr Deployment = how to do (Expert Question)?
Date Thu, 07 Apr 2011 03:06:59 GMT
I would not use replication. LinkedIn consumer search is a flat system
where one process indexes new entries and does queries simultaneously.
It's a custom Lucene app called Zoie. Their stuff is on Github..

I would get documents to indexers via a multicast IP-based queueing
system. This scales very well and there's a lot of hardware support.

The problem with distributed search is that it is a) inherently slower
and b) has inherently more and longer jitter. The "airplane wing"
distribution of query times becomes longer and flatter.

This is going to have to be a "federated" system, where the front-end
app aggregates results rather than Solr.
