Manticore 2.7.5 vs Sphinx 3.1.1

Hi

Here we benchmarked Sphinx 3.0.2 vs Manticore 2.6.2. This was 8 months ago and both Manticore and Sphinx changed since then. As it’s said in Sphinx 3.0.3 announcement Sphinx 3.0.3 is up to 2x faster compared to 3.0.2, so it’s interesting to do another benchmark. This time let’s test on a real dataset – Hacker News comments.

The benchmark was conducted with the following conditions:

Percolate queries: Manticore Search vs Luwak

In this article we test how percolate queries perform in Manticore Search and Luwak.

Introduction

Recently we tested the performance of Percolate Queries in Manticore Search and Elasticsearch. Today we are looking at Luwak, a stored query engine based on Lucene search library.

When we developed Percolate Queries […]

Research on Jemalloc

As said on http://jemalloc.net/:

jemalloc is a general purpose malloc(3) implementation that emphasizes fragmentation avoidance and scalable concurrency support.

Some Sphinx and Manticore Search users prefer jemalloc over malloc and say it allows to save some RAM. I’ve tested how jemalloc affects resource consumption and response time for 2 weeks on 3 Manticore clusters (se03/03-2, se04/04-2, se05/05-2) each of which:

Sphinx 3 vs Manticore: performance benchmark

[UPDATE] Fresher benchmark is here.


Recently long-awaited Sphinx 3 was released and updated in 3.0.2 . It has got documents storage capabilities, A-indexes, snippets pre-indexing and unfortunately is not open source any more (at least now, in March 2018).

Those all are very nice features, but are you interested in how much they affected the performance of Sphinx 3 and how much that differs from Manticore’s performance? We too!

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[…]
