I've now installed Enhanced Search and elasticsearch combination. It is supposed to provide much faster and comprehensive search, since it is taking the data from a RAM cache rather than from a mysql query. Can anyone confirm whether or not there is a speed difference and more results being shown? I'm not sure how to test if it is working or not.

One of the benefits of the new search is that there is no minimum characters required. So, for those who tried to search before using csv, you can now do it! I believe you get about 200 results. Not sure how many the previous search provided?

Just re-tested for two items that I had searched for in the past week: Posta I had done with search terms Progress bar and osk (on screen keyboard).
The new search found what I had been previously looking for unsuccessfully.
Many thanks Jon

On the basis of 2 searches by one person, then yes indeed!

Thank you Jon!

The number of results changed dramatically. Now every result that should exist for my few sample searches, based on my memory, is actually found by the search.

The new search is blazing fast! Hard to say if there is a speed difference. It now returns the expected results as fast as it found nothing before. ;-)

It should be fast because it is constantly storing all the search index in RAM instead of the database. It's a bit like having a SSD vs mechanical drive.
