    Thumbs Down The Search Function 30 Seconds Time Limit

    Is it possible to get rid of the 30 sec time limit for searches now that Skadi has less traffic after the forum split?

    It's annoying nonetheless, especially when the first search does not return any results and one wants to try with different terms.

    30 Seconds Wait for Search

    Is that feature an essential one of Skadi?

    I find it pretty annoing and don't see a reason why it is made so.

    Is there a way to take it out?

    I think it's a feature on vBulletin more than anything else. I've seen this feature on every single forum I have been on which was powered by vBulletin.

    Although MySQL databases are fast and lightweight (on processor usage), a search that goes through 600.000+++ entries generates a lot of "garbage" (collected/processed, but not further used data) on MySQL level. The delay in search is to give the process time to clean up that garbage. Depending on the version of MySQL there could be more "threads" (jobs) that need to clean up their garbage, such as Cache or other internal functions.

    It could probably be shortened, as 30 seconds are an eternity in terms of MySQL, but a complete removing of this delay might even cause the forum to crash, when searches write all their garbage into the Server (RAM)-cache and at the same time have to handle all the normal accessing of the page with often up to 900+ users, which in their own also generate garbage.
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit
