Hi all,

We're having real trouble with Riak Search.
We are seeing an awful lot of errors, which leads to alot of logging for
solr and the disk IO reaching 95% + which is causing lots of issues.

- We consistently see errors around Riak trying to create indexes which
already exist - only a restart of each Riak node stops this for a period of
time - indexes are only ever created manually, not by software.

- We see lots of errors around failing to index objects - details of what
appears in the log are:

2015-03-07 10:30:26.871 [error] <0.2538.0>@yz_kv:index:215 failed to index
with error {"Failed to index docs",{error,retry_later}} because

- We are also starting to see 500's being returned for search queries - the
response looks like this:

<html><head><title>500 Internal Server
Error</title></head><body><h1>Internal Server Error</h1>The server
encountered an error while processing this request:<br><pre>{error,


        {"Failed to search",
















* Connection #0 to host left intact

web server</ADDRESS></body></html>

Anyone that could point us in the right direction of where to look and
debug, as this is becoming a huge issue for us.
