Plugins on Distributed Seach Servers

ocramp
 Hi,

 Does anybody know if using Distributed Search will help improve the
Clustering carryot plugin speed?

Thanks,
Marco

No. Clustering is performed at the search front-end.

Thanks Andrzej,

 What about the data used to generate the cluster...Does it include all the
segments in the Distributed Search Servers or only the ones at the Front End
search machine?

Thanks very much for your attentio,
Marco

This depends on the configuration - whether you are using local
segments, or remote segments through "bin/nutch server". All segments,
which are in use by distributed search servers, will participate in the
query evaluation - query is passed to each of them, and results are
collected and joined by the search frontend. The final list of results
is then optionally passed to the clustering plugin.
