Subject Re: Scaling data extractor with Solr
Date Tue, 04 Oct 2016 03:08:51 GMT
You can have as many clients indexing to Solr (either Cloud or
stand-alone) as you want, limited only by the load you put
on Solr. I.e. if your indexing throughput is so great that it makes
querying too slow then you have to scale back...

I know of setups with 100+ separate clients all indexing to Solr
at the same time.
