Sorry to be a pest but I (as well as hundreds of others) were wondering when the new server would be coming on-line. I can't get seem to get a search in edgewise during the day and have to post stupid questions to the forum in lieu of doing the intelligent thing... like finding the answer myself in the volumes of great data out there. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/wink.gif

How about partitioning the searches to a different server that refreses the index on a periodic basis (say every 1/2 hour or so)... that way the real-time board impact is minimized. Just a thought.

The search indexes are updated with each post made. That is a function of the forum software itself. It is not done on a time based manor. IT is in real time.

The new server is still being configured. It is in house but is not an overnight job. We are testing a few configurations to find the best speed of data access of the drives. I am still looking to maybe put it on-line this weekend, but not 100% sure as of yet.

The search in this software really is the issue. It not efficient at all and you also need to remember that this is all a Flat File system and not a database. The indexes are very large because of the number of posts we have. When I prune messages to make it better, I also get yelled at for that.
