Hi Srikanth,

You are correct that in a NiFi cluster the intent would be to schedule
GetSolr on the primary node only (on the scheduling tab) so that only one
node in your cluster was extracting data.

GetSolr determines which SolrJ client to use based on the "Solr Type"
property, so if you select "Cloud" it will use SolrCloudClient. It would
send the query to one node based on the cluster state from ZooKeeper, and
then that Solr node performs the distributed query.

Did you have a specific use case where you wanted to query each shard

I think it would be straight forward to expose something on GetSolr that
would set "distrib=false" on the query so that Solr would not execute a
distributed query. You would then most likely create separate instances of
GetSolr and configure them as Standard type pointing at the respective
shards. Let us know if that is something you are interested in.
