Hi Shawn,

Thanks for the help.

Sorry I missed a "0" there. It's actually 40 Millions, still according to
you, it's still a small sized index. 😊😊

Thanks.. Got your point.

What method do you actually follow to re-index upon Solr major upgrade..?

I think I should do re-index since I am upgrading 3 major versions at once.
What is best method to re-index..? At present, I am planning to re-index by
SELECT from previous version (4.10.2) and then UPDATE into latest
version(7.1.0). Any other better thoughts to re-index..?

Thanks in advance,
Leo Prince.
