[jira] [Commented] (SOLR-12259) Robustly upgrade indexes

Nick Burch (Jira)

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-12259?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16648265#comment-16648265 ]

Erick Erickson commented on SOLR-12259:
---------------------------------------

The more I think about this, the less I like overriding optimize. The _intent_ here is that for certain situations it's beneficial to rewrite all segments, but they are special-purpose/expert.

What do people think about just a new command that doesn't have all the baggage that optimize has? Something like:

blahblahblah/update?rewriteIndex=true

or similar. I want to avoid upgradeIndex since it has the flavor of allowing X->X+1->X+2 without re-indexing.

> The general problem statement is that the current upgrade path is trappy and cumbersome.  It would be a great help "in the field" to make the upgrade process less painful.
> Additionally one of the most common things users want to do is enable docValues, but currently they often have to re-index.
> Issues:
> 1> if I upgrade from 5x to 6x and then 7x, theres no guarantee that when I go to 7x all the segments have been rewritten in 6x format. Say I have a segment at max size that has no deletions. It'll never be rewritten until it has deleted docs. And perhaps 50% deleted docs currently.
> 2> IndexUpgraderTool explicitly does a forcemerge to 1 segment, which is bad.
> 3> in a large distributed system, running IndexUpgraderTool on all the nodes is cumbersome even if <2> is acceptable.
> 4> Users who realize specifying docValues on a field would be A Good Thing have to re-index. We have UninvertDocValuesMergePolicyFactory. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to have this done all at once without forceMerging to one segment.
> Proposal:
> Somehow avoid the above. Currently LUCENE-7976 is a start in that direction. It will make TMP respect max segments size so can avoid forceMerges that result in one segment. What it does _not_ do is rewrite segments with zero (or a small percentage) deleted documents.
> So it  doesn't seem like a huge stretch to be able to specify to TMP the option to rewrite segments that have no deleted documents. Perhaps a new parameter to optimize?
> This would likely require another change to TMP or whatever.
> So upgrading to a new solr would look like
> 1> install the new Solr
> 2> execute "<a href="http://node:port/solr/collection_or_core/update?optimize=true&upgradeAllSegments=true">http://node:port/solr/collection_or_core/update?optimize=true&upgradeAllSegments=true"
> What's not clear to me is whether we'd require UninvertDocValuesMergePolicyFactory to be specified and wrap TMP or not.
> Anyway, let's discuss. I'll create yet another LUCENE JIRA for TMP do rewrite all segments that I'll link.
> I'll also link several other JIRAs in here, they're coalescing.
