Subject Re: Inconsistent results with solr admin ui and solrj
Date Tue, 16 Aug 2016 09:20:01 GMT

There is clearly something wrong when your two replicas are not in sync. Could you go to the
“Cloud->Tree” tab of admin UI and look in the overseer queue whether you find signs
of stuck jobs or something?
Btw - what warnings do you see in the logs? Anything repeatedly popping up?

I would also try the following: 
1. Take down the node hosting replica 1 (assuming that replica2 is the correct, most current)
2. Manually empty the data folder
3. Take the node up again
4. Verify that a full index recovery happens, and that they get back in sync
5. Run your indexing procedure.
6. Verify that both replicas are still in sync

This is queried live from the solr instances. |
