Subject Re: Solr Size Limitation upto 32 KB files
Date Wed, 02 Jan 2019 12:03:00 GMT
I don't know the limits about Solr 4.2.1 but the RefGuide of Solr 6.6
says about Field Types for Class StrField:
"String (UTF-8 encoded string or Unicode). Strings are intended for
small fields and are not tokenized or analyzed in any way.
They have a hard limit of slightly less than 32K."

If you are trying to add larger content then you have to "chop" that
by yourself and add it as multivalued. Can be done within a self written loader.

Don't forget, Solr/Lucene is an indexer and not a fulltext engine.

But recently, we are facing an issue with Solr Data Import. It is not importing the files
with size greater than 32766 bytes (i.e, 32 kb) and showing 2 exceptions:

sting to  'text_general' might solve the issue. Please have a look in the below forum:
