HI, We currently have 2 servers - one in each of 2 ubuntu clouds.
They write only to themselves and they are separate.
However, they can read each other to give combined results in a single window, via one of the engines.
We want to safely migrate them to a shared storage environment, optimizing storage use across the 2 servers.
They are both set as Robinson Mode
Lazy Value Initialization
Use deep-embedded local Solr
Use remote Solr server(s) (format
Solr Host Administration Interface
NOT write-enabled (if unchecked, the remote server(s) will only be used as search peers)
It is potentially possible that there are some duplicate documents in both clouds.
We have over 44 million web edges now - and the servers are reporting together.
How do we safely transition to Peer-to-Peer mode as a separate search cluster with connection only to our own servers?
Key is not to lose our large databases across 2 servers.
Will this find and eliminate any duplicates?
Will moving to this p2p mode result in smaller storage or larger storage needs?
Will this load balance the storage of data across the two servers?
We are running out of storage space.
When we will soon add another server (a 3rd) what is the safe procedure for this, please?
Is there any leveling effect or data shifting when the new server is added, or will the 3rd server remain largely empty int he beginning?
Our ultimate goal is to evenly distribute search results across all servers.
Remote Crawler Configuration /RemoteCrawl_p.html
"Your peer cannot accept remote crawls because you need senior or principal peer status for that!"
How do we fix that?
We want all our peers to be basically 'local' to each other'...no 'out of center' 'far away' circles with different DBs
