Subject Re: Solr DeleteByQuery vs DeleteById
Date Tue, 09 Aug 2016 13:20:44 GMT
Hi Bharath,
I'm no expert, but we had some major problems because of deleteByQuery ( in
short DBQ).
We ended up replacing all of our DBQ to delete by ids.

My suggestion is that if you don't realy need it - don't use it.
Especially in your case, since you already know the population of ids, it
is redundant to query for it.

I don't know how CDCR works, but we have a replication factor of 2 on our
SolrCloud cluster.
Since Solr 5.x , DBQ were stuck for a long while on the replicas, blocking
all updates.
It appears that on the replica side, there's an overhead of reordering and
executing the same DBQ over and over again, for consistency reasons.
It ends up buffering many delete by queries and blocks all updates.
In addition there's another defect on related slowness on DBQ - LUCENE-7049
