Supersearch images are working, but only 4 days retention?

Post by Arsby »

Started this morning.
General and music seem okay.
I'm asking for images for the last 45 days.
I search for anything in images, including images I've downloaded weeks ago, and the oldest images returned by Supersearch are 3.8 days old.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Same here when just typing the letter "kl" I get up to a max of 5.1, I thought just letting you know it's not just you because no one else reacted.

Hope someone can check it out. :-k :-k

The SS status page also shows 5.x days retention. That server was having issues a few days back and then stopped responding completely. It looks as if the index database on that server crashed and had to start over again.

Hopefully Spiril will post something about it but it will probably be the same answer.

Thanks for the response, everyone.

Thank goodness it's not me. I was afraid someone would tell me to reinstall Windows or something. :)

Does anyone know where's the "status" page that Smudge is talking about?

TIA

Much obliged, Smudge.

It's a good thing it's hidden. Boy that looks bad.

"General" Category Retention : 130.3 days.
"Audio" Category Retention : 141.2 days.
"Pictures" Category Retention : 4.0 days.

Especially when they're crowing about 120+ days retention on the home page.

FYI, the pictures index is always smaller (though not this small) due to the massive number of pictures posted. The average retention for the pictures server is around 50-55 days.

In the News, Spiril mentioned upgraded servers and recompiling for 64 bit so that hundreds of days of index will be possible. That should mean the picture index will also increase.

I just checked the ss page again...

Dramatic change in less than a day:
Indexing turn-around time : 115.4 minutes.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"General" Category Retention : 74.9 days.
"Audio" Category Retention : 139.9 days.
"Pictures" Category Retention : 4.7 days.

General retention went way down.
And I could swear that indexing turnaround was a fraction of a minute last I looked.
