Subject Re: Server inconsistent state & Core Reload issue
Date Thu, 02 May 2013 01:29:19 GMT
      I don't believe its the container because we use the same container
in another setup that has 6 cores which is serving almost 1.8 Million
requests a day without a hitch.

If you look at my email the container that is running SOLR got the request
params (http access logs provided in first email) but when it goes through
the SOLR app/code on the container (probably through request filters or
dispatchers..I don't know exactly) its getting lost, which is what I am
trying to understand. I want to understand under what situations this mat

Having said that this application that uses this problematic SOLR instance
retrieves large number of facets results for each of 26 facets for each
query and every query is a group query, would that cause any issues with
SOLR caches that could lead to the issues like I am facing ???

With regards to the port number, our paranoid security folks wanted me to
not reveal our ports so I put it as 80 without thinking :-), I assure use
that its not 80.
