We are planning Solr index optimization and we ask four your guidance and experience regarding this. As we have a large repository with more than 250 M files and 600K uploads and 800K deletions daily we consider this action as an important manintenance action to safegauard solr performance.
As this is is the first time we do this, we have some doubts:
- Is it better to start optimization by using Optimize Now button or making an API call to Solr?
- Can I upload files to Alfresco during optimization? Will they be indexed? or after optimization task?
- Can you provide guidance on how long does it take in my case with almost 900GB of indexes to finish optimization?
- Where can I see optimization progress or errors? Will Solr logging page be available during optimization execution? What message should I expect once optimization has succesfully finished?
I really apreciate your guidance and help.
