Ingest and Indexing

You’ve got data, and you need to get it into Fusion. Here’s how it works:

  • Ingest is the process of sending your data to Fusion via a compatible protocol.

    • Connectors are Fusion components that ingest and parse specific kinds of data. There’s a Fusion connector for just about any data type.

    • Lucidworks provides plugins for Hive and Pig that allow them to send data to Fusion for ingest.

    • The Index Pipelines API allows you to push data directly to one of Fusion’s index pipelines.

  • Indexing converts your data into an indexed collection in Fusion’s Solr core. It’s critical for ensuring that your data is stored in a format that’s ideal for your search application.
