Open source text search engine for big data and stream filtering
- Filtering multi-language user generated data streams in real time
- 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.)
To improve the relevance of our customers’ results we use Manticore Search as our data indexing solution, and Manticore Percolate Queries for real-time filtering of data in transit. read more
We’ve chosen this product because of the high performance compared to alternatives, the ability to expand the functionality with help of udf-functions and the availability of SQL-like query language.read more
- 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 opted to migrate to Manticore instead of upgrading Sphinx since Manticore is open source and better supported. We’re very happy with our decision. read more
We were using Sphinx but lately was crashing quite often and as a result making our homepage completely broken … We now only have some quick performance drops, instead of a continuous failure read more

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…)
