After its first week in the wild, wpSearch has been run on a number of different versions of WordPress and PHP, highlighting some places to improve aspects of its core. wpSearch 1.5 has just been released, with a completely rewritten search mechanism to bring search speeds into the milliseconds.
wpSearch now integrates its results into the WordPress search using pure WordPress API. Here are some statistics from version 1.5:
|Indexing Performance:||~30 minutes for 6,000 posts (5 docs / sec)|
|Typical Search Speed:||30-100 ms over 1,000 posts|
|“Atypical Search” Speed:||400 ms over 1,000 duplicate posts with 1,000 matches|
|Indexing Performance:||~30 minutes for 6,000 posts|
These stats were gathered on a non-dedicated development server with 1 GB Ram, 3.2 Ghtz Hyperthreaded Intel P4, with Windows XP, and a WAMP installation without any sort of code caching (like Zend Optimizer). Needless to say, this server isn’t the quickest, but it still turns out very impressive search times.
wpSearch 1.5 is also completely compatible with the latest release of WordPress, 2.6.
