[Zope] One or multiple ZCatalogs?
Mon, 02 Jun 2003 11:54:29 +0200
We are working in a heavy content site, with about 87,000 content objects
with full-text indexing (TextIndexNg). Usually read-only, rarely writing or
updating contents on the ZODB.
Due to usability reasons, we'll never give "search in the whole site"
search results, but "We found x results in the A section, we found y
results in the B section...", although the users are able to search in the
So, we are deciding about giving search results with:
- One ZCatalog at the top. Launch it N times in order to give results from
- N ZCatalogs, each one in one section.
For managing, it's clear that the second option is more useful. (I'm trying
to index the whole site at once... what a pain!!)
What about the performance with high load? what is more expensive? calling
8 times the same big ZCatalog, or calling 8 different (but smaller)
ZCatalogs in the same request?
Thanks in advance
