  • Indexing and searching over hundreds of terabytes of data
  • Search results grouping and faceting
  • High-quality search results ranking following best industry practices
  • Backend for search UI (eg. “Did you mean”, search phrase autocompletion, spelling correction etc.)

  • We contacted Manticore’s free support on Slack with questions related to migrating form Sphinx search.
    In 30 minutes we had the first reply, and a few days later our issue was resolved, and we now using Manticore search to perform over 5 billion queries every day. read more

We are pleased to announce the release of Manticore Search 3.2.0. Downloads are available here and from the Manticore Github page. Docker image is available at Docker Hub.

In Manticore 3.1.2 was added support for data encryption between your application or another client (curl, browser etc) and Manticore Search daemon. It’s important to have it enabled if you need to protect your data (queries, responses) from interception inside your local network and especially if you connect to Manticore Search over the internet. Setting it up requires using certificates. Below is just an example of how it can be done with self-signed certificates, there may be other options like purchasing certificates signed by a real CA.

In this tutorial, we will study how to use SSL in work with Manticore Search.

Recently we’ve remade our system threads. Since we’ve forked from Sphinx and earlier searchd had all system tasks made in an often-rise-up style. Each service worked in a dedicated thread which wakes up every 50ms and checks whether it has something to do or not. That means that even an idle daemon wakes 200 times a sec ‘just to check’ a task. Having 6 such tasks will make 1200 wakes a sec, and it became noticeable especially by clients on Amazon AWS which counts CPU usage. Those internal tasks were: (more…)
