Before launching any re-index such as the migration to the new Solr8 index, make sure you have lots of space where ever your retain-tomcat logs are collecting.
I hit it the hard way that this indexing is taking more than a few years worth of logging space and ran HARD into those limits (Retain stopped when it got to 5GB free space left)
I started one migration after the Ed's webinar running through it Tuesday, and only up to 35% done 2 days later. Should be finished over the weekend now that there won't be pauses due to space issues.
