Subject Re: Certain form of autocomplete (like Google Suggest)
Date Thu, 10 Jul 2008 06:21:46 GMT
For capacity planning, our autocomplete gets more than 10X as many
requests as our search. Solr can handle our search just fine, but
I wrote an in-memory prefix match to handle the 25-30M autocomplete
matches each day. I load that by doing Solr queries, so the two
stay in sync.
