Slides for my “How to offload MySQL server with Sphinx” FOSDEM‘s talk is available here along with the others. Also we’ve participated in Sphinx user stories (by SkySQL and Sphinx).
Thanks for everyone who organized and attend FOSDEM 2012! It was pleasure to speak there at MySQL & Friends track (special thanks to Frederic Descamps for organizing it)!
If you want us to speak on the conferences or in Sphinx meetup in your location – please feel free to ping me!
Sincerely yours, Vlad.
If you want to know more about Sphinx performance or looking to offload your heavy loaded production DB from Full-text and non-full-text queries we are welcome you to meet Sphinx at FOSDEM conference in Brussels, Belgium on the first weekend this February!
Vladimir Fedorkov, Director of Professional Services at Sphinx will present talks in MySQL and Friends Devroom and will open Sphinx Performance Top Secrets.
For our European users this is also a good time to arrange onsite performance and tuning – we will not charge you for most travel expenses around these dates. Please contact us for details and mention promotional code FOSDEMSPH for the discount.
Looking forward to meet you in Brussels!
Let’s step back from performance and highlight how Sphinx uses memory.
There are two different ways to store data in Sphinx: either in an on-disk, or a real-time index.
Lets start with the good old on-disk indexes. Basically, a Sphinx on-disk index is a set of files generated by indexer during the indexing process. All of them, except .spd and .spp are kept in memory for performance reasons. Read more…
As you might know, the Sphinx team is focused not only on full-text search improvements like the blended characters support we introduced in 2.0.1-beta, we also care about general performance improvements. One of the performance questions we run into frequently is, “how do you measure a single query’s speed.. especially in a scalable, distributed environment?”
On Saturday, Jun 18th meet Andrew Aksyonoff, Sphinx founder in Kyiv, Ukraine on an extensive 8-hour Sphinx workshop. The workshop will be given in Russian and covers Sphinx quite extensively, from the initial 1-click installation to search cluster setup and tuning.
