View Full Version : Scalability

We've recently built a site for a client of ours using phpDig as the base for the code. The site address is http://www.purpleengine.co.nz

I was just wondering how big your guys databases are and what phpdig has been tested to - currently our stats are:

Hosts : 108 Entries
Pages : 28841 Entries
Index : 4999911 Entries
Keywords : 359523 Entries
Temporary table : 80510 Entries

what say you ?

PS - what does the temporary table do above ?

Welcome to the forum, Alain. We're glad to have you here! :)

My database is much smaller than yours, I'm afraid. Actually though, I'd be more interested in how long it took for search results to be returned on a "common" word or group of words for someone's website. That's the real test, in my opinion.

Regarding your question about the temporary table, I wasn't able to find an explanation of exactly what its purpose is, but perhaps this thread (http://www.phpdig.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=307&highlight=tempspider) will offer some insight as to how you should be maintaining it. Hope it helps.

Search times are something we are working on at the moment by tuning our hardware/software .. For a common word search times can range from milliseconds to a few seconds ..

I'm going to take a look at the different tables after reading that other thread - seems we are not indexing any sites at the moment so I would have throught the temporary table would be empty .. time for a backup/empty.
