XF 1.5 search too slow after moving to AWS


Active member
It seems that the free text search is working too slow after we have moved out to site to AWS.

Anyone has experienced something similar?

That is not nearly enough information. Are you using ES? Are your instances properly sized? I/O issues?

@fly Yeah our instances are properly sized, and we're using 2 application servers and 2 db servers with master/slave setup. So I think we might need some fine tuning on the db side, as we've around 12M records in the xf_post table.

Is your Innodb cache big enough to hold the complete database in memory?
Otherwise I would recommend enhanced search (using Elasticsearch).
