Subject Re: How to routing document for send to particular shard range
Date Tue, 02 Jan 2018 15:06:58 GMT
bq: Only thing which we can achieve is , documents will be routed
based on the hash values of the field values.

Then you have created your collection with compositeID routing or have
some other misconfiguration. You _must_
create your collection with "".

Rather than _tell_ us what you're doing, please _show_.
1> the exact command you use to create your collection
2> the results of the collections API CLUSTERSTATUS command:
3> An example document and where you think it should be routed.
4> Where it actually ends up.

Again, you use the "active" tag as the both value of the route field and
the name of the shard. You can name the shard as you choose of course.

This works as I expect (Solr 6.3)

Create command:

rfield definition (not sure whether stored="true" or indexed="true"
are required)
<field name="rfield" type="string" indexed="true" stored="true"
required="true" multiValued="false" />

Query to check whether a doc is on a specific shard, note
&distrib=false specifically restricts query to the core indicated:

Example XML docs:
  <field name="id">doc1</field>
  <field name="rfield">active</field>

  <field name="id">doc2</field>
  <field name="rfield">inactive</field>

  <field name="id">doc3</field>
  <field name="rfield">terminated</field>
