[Archivesspace_Users_Group] PUI indexing issues

This is a little bit of a shot in the dark, but have you looked at disk space on whatever host Solr is resident on? (the ASpace server if you’re not running an external one)?

A thing we’ve hit a couple times is that Solr, at least in some configurations, needs substantial headroom on disk to perform well – I think it’s related to how it builds and maintains the index?  So it might be worth looking to see if Solr is filling up the disk enough that it can’t efficiently handle itself.

- What really bothers me is the slowdown. That indicates to me that some resource is being lost along the way. Anyone have thoughts on what that might be?

Just to follow up on my earlier post, I did get even lower numbers from Blake to try based upon what he used for our hosted account. But I'm seeing the same pattern in terms of slowdowns regarding the number of records that get processed/hour. Is this typical?  Is it just hitting records that have more work to be done? Or do I still have a resource issue.

I note that the number of docs in Solr has not changed at all throughout the last couple of attempts, which again leads me to believe it has already handled these records (at least once) before and thus there is no more indexing to really be done with the records which it is running through the PUI indexer again. Which leads back to the "why does PUI indexing restart each time from 0" question. How does one add an enhancement request to have this reviewed and (perhaps) changed?
