Frequently Asked Questions About Solr Monitoring and Alerting

What APIs does SearchStax Managed Search provide?
Why do Solr backups fail?

A “backup” is a copy of the deployment’s configuration files, index files, and any .JAR files that are needed. Any condition that interferes with copying these files can produce a backup failure:

  • Some of these events are temporary and will correct themselves
  • Some can be cleared by the user or by support
  • Some mean that you have outgrown your deployment and need to upgrade.

What is involved in setting up and managing Solr?

There are five key steps for setting up Solr in a cloud infrastructure:

  1. Building clusters
  2. Monitoring and alerting
  3. Log management
  4. Backup setup and testing
  5. Building disaster recovery

Once the initial setup and Solr deployment is completed, there are several ongoing management and support activities that must be addressed, including:

  1. Scaling
  2. Upgrades
  3. Backup and recovery
  4. Production support
