Sometimes I miss the 90s. Search was so easy in ECM environments. Everyone used a bundled Verity and was happy.
Then things changed. People started to notice that if you actually used the system on an large scale, search performance degraded. There were many reasons for this. One was that vendors weren’t upgrading their bundled Verity engine. Another was that the engine was sitting on the same machine as the primary ECM server, so resources were being consumed at an increasing rate.
