Subject Re: maximum number of documents per shard?
Date Thu, 25 Jul 2013 12:37:45 GMT
Well, we have hit the aforementioned jira issue with about 80 shards. The
sharding for us is a pure function of memory consumption and we use RAM
lots. With solr4 however, things look much better  and hopefully having
migrated from solr3 we can live for long time without hitting the limit
again.
