Every now and then my drive fills up with temp files from SOLR, and I can't figure out why that is happening. Here's what I know:
I have a 50gb partition and my analytics index has numDocs:43,287,203 and maxDoc:43,316,981. We currently have 15 cores that live on that partition. The analytics index is usually around 30gb but every so often it fills the drive. We restart the SOLR services to dump the temp disk space usage, and that seems to fix the issue. This is a basic install of SOLR (we haven't done any tweaking to the configs). We are on SOLR 188.8.131.52.
- Is there a way to limit the merges it makes so it won't eat up my disk space?
- If not, what are the recommended disk space sizes for these merges? I can get more disk space if I need it, but I need to know how much to ask for.
Thanks for your help!
