Solr Node Types

Managed Search can provide a variety of Solr node types. Both standard-memory and high-memory node types are available.

Node types for production workloads

These node types are supported for production workloads.

Note
You can specify a different amount of disk space to use per Solr node (storageSizeGB) when creating a cluster or later. You can’t decrease storageSizeGB; you can only increase it.

Additional node types for development and testing

These node types are available for development and testing. These node types aren’t supported for production workloads.

Standard:

Solr Node Type Virtual CPUs Memory (GB) Default Storage (GB)

standard.small

0.6

4.6

20

High memory:

Solr Node Type Virtual CPUs Memory (GB) Default Storage (GB)

highmem.small

0.6

9.6

20

Note
You can specify a different amount of disk space to use per Solr node (storageSizeGB) when creating a cluster or later. You can’t decrease storageSizeGB; you can only increase it.

Specifying the node type

When creating a cluster using the Clusters API or the Cluster Manager, you specify the Solr node type for all Solr nodes in the cluster. All nodes are of the same type.

Changing the node type

At any time after cluster creation completes, you can use the Clusters API or the Cluster Manager to change the Solr node type of all nodes in a cluster.

Note
Manual scaling and autoscaling change the number of nodes, not the node types.
