Although I think forcing SolrJ to do POST (which Markus provided) is a
better solution than what I did, just for completeness I'll mention the
other path you can take -- increasing the max header size. I found this
in the 6.0 config file server/etc/jetty.xml:
name="solr.jetty.request.header.size" default="8192" /></Set>
On my systems, I have bumped this to 32768, because we have queries in
the 20K range. I also needed to bump the header size in my load
balancer, haproxy. I do not know what the max size of this value is,
but I personally would not go beyond 32-64K. If the query can't fit in
that, POST is the only reasonable path.
