Plain indexes replication

Manticore Search (as well as Sphinx) doesn’t yet support replication for plain or RT indexes out of the box (although we’re working on this, if you want to be a beta tester let us know at info@manticoresearch.com), so you have to implement it by yourself if you need to have a copy of your Manticore Search Read more about Plain indexes replication[…]

Minimal configuration to play with Manticore Search

If you want to start learning Manticore Search plain indexes or see how some its feature works the following simplest Manticoresearch configuration might be useful: It contains almost nothing, but only the things Manticoresearch cannot work without. Those are: Section “source” to fetch data from mysql. In this case we don’t even fetch real data from Read more about Minimal configuration to play with Manticore Search[…]

Fuzzy matching and 2nd pass query

Many customers that we have helped with integrating search into their applications wanted their search to be more intelligent than just strictly matching a query with documents. There are many ways to do this. Manticoresearch makes it very easy, as fuzzy matching is included out of the box. It consists of three main components: 1. Quorum Read more about Fuzzy matching and 2nd pass query[…]

Percolate queries: Manticore Search vs Elasticsearch

Introduction Percolate Queries are also known as Persistent Queries, Prospective Search, document routing, search in reverse or inverse search. The normal way of doing searches is to store documents we want to search and perform queries against them. However there are cases when we want to apply a query to an incoming new document to Read more about Percolate queries: Manticore Search vs Elasticsearch[…]

Free config review

There are often optimizations that can be made to a Sphinx / Manticore setup by changing some simple directives in the configuration or making quick changes to an index definition.

Some common mistakes and issues can include:

  • doing main+delta without kill-lists, even if the delta does include updated records found in the main
  • using wildcarding with very short prefix/infix which can hammer performance in some cases
  • disabled (unintentional) seamless rotates and getting stalls on index rotations
  • adding texts as string attributes even if they are not using for any kind of operation (filtering, grouping, sorting) or mandatory to be present in results
  • using deprecated settings 

Having a quick look on the configuration can show issues or potential issues, this is why we want to offer a gift to our growing community!

When uploading your configuration file, we recommend to remove any database credentials first.

We suggest also you give as many possible details about your setup: how big is the data you have, how typical queries look and what issues you experience.
