    At what point does a site benefit from having ES installed?

    I'm just under 230,000 posts, but have 2GB ram spare on the VPS I have.

    Would I really see a benefit from ES? A lot of members actively use the search, so any improvements would be welcomed.

    How long does a typical search take?

    If it's more than a second then ES will likely be faster. Our searches were taking 3 or 4 seconds to complete but with ES they're pretty much instantaneous.

    Strictly speaking, any site will benefit from ES by getting rid of MySQL's limitations and stopword list. (Obviously you can change these, but then you'll start running into performance issues sooner.)

    If I search for a fairly common word, such as Astra, the on screen loading on the first search seems to take around 2 seconds to come back with the results.

    Thanks Mike, off to the customer area I go

    Our server is pretty fast too so that helps :D
    Thanks to the person who set it up ;)

    Is this compatible with Turkish letters like ş ç ü ğ ö etc?

    I particularly like the stemming capability - catches a few more results than the default absolute MySQL word searching, making the results a bit more useful to us mere mortals. :D

    Yeah, I've noticed this doing a few test searches, and it's making the result set a lot better than it was previously.

    I'm considering adding it to all my forums over the next couple of years - just can't justify the expense at the moment.

    We've had a good month in our online shop, so I'm investing back into the forum.
