Subject [jira] [Commented] (NUTCH-1047) Pluggable indexing backends
Date Tue, 29 Jan 2013 09:07:13 GMT


Tejas Patil commented on NUTCH-1047:

Hi Julien,

As you suggested, I tried to run solrindex command without setting "solr.server.url" in nutch-site.xml
or "-D".
Command used: {noformat}bin/nutch solrindex http://localhost:8983/solr mycrawl/crawldb/ mycrawl/segments/201301280439/{noformat}

It says: {noformat}
Usage: Indexer <crawldb> [-linkdb <linkdb>] [-params k1=v1&k2=v2...] (<segment>
... | -dir <segments>) [-noCommit] [-deleteGone] [-filter] [-normalize]{noformat}

The check for number of args is causing this. I corrected it locally and it worked fine after
As per usage above, user needs to provide just the crawldb and segment. But user need solrurl
to be passed which is consumed by the bin/nutch script. The usage message must be changed
to hide this mechanism from user.

> One possible feature would be to add a new endpoint for indexing-backends and make the
indexing plugable. at the moment we are hardwired to SOLR - which is OK - but as other resources
like ElasticSearch are becoming more popular it would be better to handle this as plugins.
Not sure about the name of the endpoint though : we already have indexing-plugins (which are
about generating fields sent to the backends) and moreover the backends are not necessarily
for indexing / searching but could be just an external storage e.g. CouchDB. The term backend
on its own would be confusing in 2.0 as this could be pertaining to the storage in GORA. 'indexing-backend'
is the best name that came to my mind so far - please suggest better ones.
> We should come up with generic map/reduce jobs for indexing, deduplicating and cleaning
and maybe add a Nutch extension point there so we can easily hook up indexing, cleaning and
deduplicating for various backends.
