Recently, there are many momentum involved with Search implementation inside Sakai Community. The legacy Lucene-based Sakai search was replaced with Elastic search in Sakai trunk, while Oxford implemented Solr-based search and has it running on their prod system for over a year.
The search tool has been included in the UMich CTools build for at least 5 years. It is currently stealthed due to performance concerns. Given the emergence of search as a primary mode of user/software interaction, UMich need to determine the current scalability of the Search tool and invest time into test/fixing performance issues.
We will conduct the performance test on the current Search tool, mainly with new Elastic Search implementation, and determine the scalability of the new embedded search (instead of dedicated search server) approach. The goal should be to make a Search tool widely available and out of stealthed status.
