Hey there,

I have an app with a very large data set - about 200 million rows in an SQL database - and I'm trying to explore options for optimizing the searches.

Right now I'm testing Solr, which is amazing and works great in development, but I'm curious as to what the memory usage would be in production. More so, would the Solr indexing count against the RAM / 512MB application memory, or would it be pooled into the total 100GB disk space?

I'm thinking to index files will be roughly 1.5 GB, so if it counts towards the RAM, I'll be over the limit. If it counts towards the disk space I'll be fine. Also, will the location that it's saved have an affect on what limit it's allocated to? For example, if I save it in /webapps vs. /webapps/rails/app_name ?

Thanks for the help,

Tyler

There's no way for us to know how much RAM your Solr app will consume in production. My advice is that you test it locally to make that determination.

Whatever RAM it does use will be counted towards the RAM allowance for your hosting plan.

Whatever disk storage it uses will be counted towards your storage quota, regardless of where you store the related files.
