Subject Re: Solr TCP layer
Date Tue, 10 Mar 2015 18:13:45 GMT
Thanks everyone for the responses.

My motivation for TCP is coming from a very heavy indexing pipeline where
the smallest of optimization matters. I am working on a machine data parser
which feeds data into Cassandra and Solr and we have SLAs based on how fast
we can make data available in both the sources. We used to have issues with
Cassandra as well but we optimized the s**t out of it.

Now we want to do the same with Solr. While I do realize that this is going
to be a lot of work, but if its something that will reap benefit in long
run, then so be it. Datastax provides a netty based layer in their
enterprise version which folks have reported to be faster. Now just because
a commercial vendor ships it, doesn't mean we will jump into it without
thinking. We will definitely do a effect-vs-effort analysis before
committing to this. 

For majority of users, such high performance might not be a
requirement/priority, so I understand the reluctance to go down this path.

I think it would be best at this time that I start exploring this option and
get back with my analysis.

Thanks again.
