    Solr search property Example setting What is it?
    Content Tracking Enabled Yes This specifies that Solr 6 can still track with the No Index search enabled. This setting can be used to disable Solr 6 tracking by separate Solr instance(s) configured to track this server.
    Solr Port (Non-SSL) 8080 This specifies the application server's http port (non-secure) on which Solr 6 is running. This is only used if Solr 6 is configured to run without secure communications.
    Solr base URL /solr6 This specifies the base URL for the Solr 6 web application.

    Index Lag 0 s This specifies the time that indexing is currently behind the repository updates.
    Approx Transactions to Index 0 This specifies the estimated number of outstanding transactions that require indexing.
    Memory Usage (GB) 0 This specifies the current memory usage. The value may vary due to transient memory used by background processing.
