super search server specs

Post by dwazegek »

got this out of a different thread:
Spiril wrote:In case anyone cares, the specs for the server are: Dual Xeon 2.8GHz, 2 SCSI raid disks and 4GB ram. Enough to cover quite a few super search searches! :D
nice :)
what size disks does the server have? and raid 0 or 1 (i'd say 1, but just checking ;))?

i remember the old super search core used to update every 20 mins, but the new one seems to update more often, is this true (if so, how often)?

and is a 50 day retention still on the roadmap, or is 21 days the longest we'll see? doesn't matter much for me, my server only has 21 days, but for the giganews users 50 days would be nice

And you're absolutely correct! :) RAID1 is what it uses.

Every 10 minutes atm. But if I optimize it a bit further I can get it down to a couple of minutes. Not sure if that is really necessary though. A 10 minute delay is ok with me anyway!

Hmm, it really depends on how much load the new engine puts on the server when the retention gets higher. I'll start with 21 days and if everything runs smoothly, I'll bump the retention to at least 30 days. And maybe end up with 50 days if needed.

thanks! :)
10 mins should be often enough, 20 mins felt a bit slow, but a 10 min delay is hardly noticable
