Subject RE: Example setting TieredMergePolicy for Solr 3.3 or 3.4?
Date Mon, 19 Sep 2011 16:57:36 GMT
Thanks Robert,

Removing "set" from " setMaxMergedSegmentMB" and using "maxMergedSegmentMB" fixed the problem.
( Sorry about the multiple posts.  Our mail server was being flaky and the client lied to
me about whether the message had been sent.)

I'm still confused about the mergeFactor=10 setting in the example configuration.  Took a
quick look at the code, but I'm obviously looking in the wrong place. Is mergeFactor=10 interpreted
by TieredMergePolicy as
segmentsPerTier=10 and maxMergeAtOnce=10?   If I specify values for these is the mergeFactor
setting ignored?

an example is here:

Right, i think it should be:

<double name="maxMergedSegmentMB">20000</double>
