There's been discussions going on over at Sematext about their free SaaS (internally called SPM – Scalable Performance Monitoring) which is used for Solr performance monitoring. The question that keeps coming up is how to best report the changes in an index's size. They decided to take the question to the users
and I thought it'd be a good idea to see what the DZone audience thought about index monitoring for Solr, ElasticSearch, or any other search platform.
So if the monitoring system records the index several times within a few minutes, should it take the average of those values, the mean, the maximum, the minimum or all of the above.Original poll: http://blog.sematext.com/2012/02/13/poll-solr-index-size-monitoring
What should Solr Index Monitoring Provide?
