Question about the search engine

    Hi guys,

    On our board (smf 2) we have been using the sphinx engine with this statistics:

    758245 Posts in 24745 Topics by 420 Members.

    And with this vps hardware:

    Intel Xeon Quad Core E5620 @ 2.40GHz 4C 8T, 1ghz reserved
    1gb ram
    10gb space

    At this time we have no problem, is the default search included in the forum enough for us?

    I have seen an add on for using sphinx with xenforo, is it still in develop or it can be used in a production environment?

    Thanks you in advance.

    Hum, at what "limit" (approximately, obviously) we should switch to the elastic search official add on?

    btw I guess we can can buy the add on later than the xf license, it's right?

    Yeah, its only $50.

    I would try it without - and then feel it out. At 1million posts I would add it.

    With just 1GB RAM you might not have enough server resources to run Elastic Search. I'd recommend pricing additional RAM for your hosting package before taking the plunge on XFES. (y)

    Elastic search it's so really resources eater?

    You can always upgrade your package or change host, to get better hardware.
