    OK. Tht title should say all.

    My XF is fast, and my search results appear in less than two seconds. My Server never has a load above 0.5.

    What do ES better than XF default?

    I have german boad, so stemming is not an option for. That's sad. The stemming is based in Lucene, or in ES?

    If you have over 1 million posts, then that is generally the point at which standard MySQL search starts struggling.

    Enhanced Search also has additional benefits such as no minimum word length, a smaller stop word list, stemming, etc.

    The main question would be how large is your board.

    With a 2 second return time I would estimate your pushing over 500k posts?

    I have 1.6 Mio posts.
    Does it find "more" oder "more correctly"? stemming ist in german not really working. Can it be disabled?
    Is it possible to try it? Mybe you can set an option in this forum "Search with ES" and "Search without ES", so that we can see the differences, if there are some.

    You would get a marked improvement by using ES.

    As for comparing, unfortunately not, once you install ES it replaces the Mysql search.

    Stemming is a option you can enable, you don't have to have it.

    I did a search on my forum for oder (using ES), here is what it came back with, we are a mostly English forum, but do have some German postings occassionally.
