As we countdown to the annual Lucene/Solr Revolution conference in Boston this October , we’re highlighting talks and sessions from past conferences. Today, we’re highlighting Gregg Donovan’s session, “Lessons from Sharding Solr at Etsy”.
Gregg covers the following lessons learned at Etsy while sharding Solr: How to enable SolrJ to handle distributed search fanout and merge; How to instrument Solr for distributed tracing so that distributed searches may be better understood, analyzed, and debugged; Strategies for managing latency in distributed search, including tolerating partial results and issuing backup requests in the presence of lagging shards.
Gregg Donovan is a Senior Software Engineer at Etsy.com in Brooklyn, NY, working on the Solr and Lucene infrastructure that powers more than 120 million queries per day. Gregg spoke at Lucene/Solr Revolution 2015 in Austin, Lucene Revolution 2011 in San Francisco, Lucene Revolution 2013 in San Diego, and previously worked with Solr and Lucene at TheLadders.com.
