Analytics at Scale with the Analytics Component 2.0
In this talk we will discuss the next iteration of the Solr Analytics Component. The analytics component gives users the ability to compute complex analytics, in real-time, over result sets. The focus of the new version of the analytics components was support for analytics on distributed/sharded collections while maintaining the capabilities and performance of the original. Several additional features have been added including faceting over field/function expressions, support for multi-value field expressions and significant performance improvements for high cardinality facets.

We will briefly review the capabilities of the original analytics component, followed by a demonstration of the features and use cases this new release enables. We will discuss the use cases that the analytics component is better suited for than Solr streaming. Finally, we will examine the internals of the component and how to best structure analytics requests in order to maximize performance.
