Sunspot comes with
MasterSlaveSessionProxy that does the following:
This session proxy implementation allows Sunspot to be used with a master/slave Solr deployment. All write methods are delegated to a master session, and read methods are delegated to a slave session.
What this simple gem does is provide failover support if the slave session goes down. Reads and writes are called on the master session.
Your config/sunspot.yml file should look something like this:
development: master_solr: host: ... port: ... solr: host: ...
NOTE: You do not have to have a master session. If a master session is not detected, sunspot-rails-failover will default to what sunspot_rails provides.
Next, add an initializer (maybe initializers/sunspot.rb) with the following code:
sunspot-rails-failover supports exception handling for committing and
searching. Currently, it will use Hoptoad by default if it is installed.
The exception is passed to
You can also use a custom class/module to customize how you want to handle the
module MyExceptionHandler def self.handle(exception) Notifier.deliver_exception_message(exception) end end Sunspot::Rails::Failover.exception_handler = MyExceptionHandler Sunspot::Rails::Failover.setup
