Subject [jira] [Closed] (LUCENENET-457) Lucene locks directory with index after network related problems
Date Thu, 29 Jun 2017 11:28:00 GMT


Shad Storhaug closed LUCENENET-457.
    Resolution: Not A Bug

Closing this as it appears to be completely network related, and deleting the write.lock file
seems to be the solution.

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.
> May be I'm wrong and there is an appoarch to handle such problems?
> At the moment I have implemented the method which deletes the record from LOCK_HELD through
> Thanks a lot.
