Exercise 4 question

Hi, at Exercise 4, there is a command:

4. Creating your collection
solrctl --zk {{zookeeper_connection_string}}/solr collection --create live_logs -s {{ hostname }}


I am puzzled by {{hostname}} here. According the help of solrctl, -s should be followed by <numShards>.

Do I miss anything here?

Re: Exercise 4 question

Yeah you're right - that's a misprint. It should be number of shards, e.g.
the number of machines running solrd. I'll get that fixed.
