Need to get to the bottom of this, before doing any performance testing.  If you don't have an search index on a node, you will not get reliable search results.

I would check to make sure Solr is running properly on the nodes on which you are not finding the index.  If you look at the logic for creating a local index [1], you should see some checks to see if the index is in metadata or on disk.  You should see some entries in the logs that will show either success or errors on creation.  Check the error logs, to ensure you are not getting errors communicating with Solr.

Also, note that 2.1.1 is fairly old.  Significant improvement with batching and asynchronous writes to Solr were added in Riak 2.2, and the latest release of the 2.2 branch is 2.2.2.

But when I make a load test with Solr HTTP API, the throuput is about 2000 Request Per Second without any error. It may be the problem in Riak config. I hope someone can show me why this error happend
