Feedback on SearchEngineSwishEAddOn

-- StanleyKnutson - 17 Aug 2005

Thanks Stanley for contributing and sharing this add-on smile

JosMaccabiani and StanleyKnutson: I added both of you to the TWikiCommunityGroup so that you can rename and delete content. Please review the doc on that topic.

Stanley, this looks tremendously interesting. How big a TWiki have you tried it on? What's the load like when the index is being built?

  • StanleyKnutson : The twiki used has ~3000 topics and attachments. I have twiki and the indexing on the same machine (no network issues). Load is about 8-10% CPU for the entire hour or so it takes. IMPORTANT: we use speedy-cgi with twiki, it is noticably slower without it.

The current version (2.4.3) doesn't support incremental indexing, but their development notes state that one of the goals for 2.4.4 is:

  • Stabilize the --enable-incremental (BTREE) feature.

-- JosMaccabiani - 17 Aug 2005

The attachment generates an error. gunzip finds a tar but the tar won't untar.

  • StanleyKnutson : Better to use tar xvfz (on linux) to untar and unzip at the same time.

-- MichaelLoflin - 25 Aug 2005

it might be worth trying to gunzip twice, it could be that it's a case of PluginAddonsCorruptWhenDownloading

-- JosMaccabiani - 25 Aug 2005

Hi MichaelLoflin, Just do the following ( I did it on linux)!

[1]. gunzip exmple-swish-scripts.tgz
[2]. mv exmple-swish-scripts.tar exmple-swish-scripts.gz
[3]. gunzip exmple-swish-scripts.gz
[4]. mv exmple-swish-scripts exmple-swish-scripts.tar
[5]. tar xvf exmple-swish-scripts.tar

BTW-- I have spent more than 1 hr 30 minutes, could not use this plugin... i have to retry it agin. * StanleyKnutson: Please elaborate on the problems you found -- I have added documentation on how to test the spidering, which is where the main problems arise.

It took me about 10 hours to set up swish to index twiki in the first place.
-- StanleyKnutson - 28 Aug 2005

I'm able to setup Swish-E with my TWiki installation. Does anyone have an integrated solution for the Swish-E search and search result pages, so that they look like just another TWiki topic/page? The seamless integration is beyond my expertise. Thanks.

-- MarkusTjahjadi - 04 Nov 2005

I installed Swish-E however it only indexes the main page from the Main web. Any ideas what I need to do to get it index all pages and all webs

-- DavidCowley - 01 Feb 2006

I've created a topic on Codev.IndexingTWiki to discuss support for this add-on.

-- ArthurClemens - 11 Mar 2006

Stanley, I added a SHORTDESCRIPTION to the "Add-On Info" section so that this add-on is represented properly in the AddOnPackage topic and query topics. Please feel free to take this into the next release.

-- PeterThoeny - 04 Nov 2006

I looked at installing this add-on. It appears to have been abandoned by it's author. The instructions are really only suitable for an expert admin, and installation is a bit of a pig. I would warn anyone without strong admin skills to avoid this add-on until it is repackaged properly. Also, it really needs to use a proper twiki crawler, such as that in the PublishContrib, instead of indexing via http requests.
