Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENENET-457) Lucene locks directory with index after network related problems
Date Wed, 13 Jun 2012 06:09:44 GMT


Pavel Belousov commented on LUCENENET-457:

We've alveady developed some additional code which deletes the file write.lock. But I think
it's not the right way, because we work with the index without API.

The problem occured a lot of times and the index was not corrupted.

My service writes data to the index. Sometimes the service gets network related exceptions
like "The specified network name is no longer available.". After that the service cannot write
anything to index because of lock, even if I delete "write.lock" file manually. Of course,
I could restart the service, but I'd like to avoid it.
> I have done a research and have found that Lucene API has IndexWriter.Unlock() method,
but in my case is does not work.
> I use NativeFSLockFactory class. Class NativeFSLock has private field LOCK_HELD with
the list of current locks, but in my case (after network related issues) it has record with
the lock (NativeFSLock uses it in Obtain() method) and I can't delete it through API. I suppose
that method NativeFSLock.Release()(which is called from IndexWriter.Unlock()) should delete
record from the field LOCK_HELD.
