Subject Re: SolrCloud shows cluster still healthy even the node data directory is deleted
Date Sun, 06 Dec 2020 11:10:36 GMT
Hi community,

I create a Solr Jira to track this issue.
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-15028

Hi Erick,

I understand this is how the file handler works.

But for the SolrCloud users, they didn't see the expected replica failover happens, then we
can not say SolrCloud is totally HA enabled. Do we have plan to handle the HA for disk failures?
Thanks.

Regards,
Radar

Hi Erick,

Thanks for your kindly reply.
There are two things that confuse me:

1. index/search queries keep failing because one of the node data directory is gone, but the
node is not marked as down.

2. The replicas on the failed node are not working, but the Index/search queries didn't failover
to other healthy replicas.

Regards,
Amy

Depends. *nix systems have delete-on-close semantics, that is as
long as there’s a single file handle open, the file will be still be
available to the process using it. Only when the last file handle is
closed will the file actually be deleted.

Solr (Lucene actually) has  file handle open to every file in the index
all the time.

These files aren’t visible when you do a directory listing. So if you
stop Solr, are the files gone? NOTE: When you start Solr again, if
there are existing replicas that are healthy then the entire index
should be copied from another replica….

Best,
Erick
