Immediately begin with a description of the interface SearchInform probably not
worth it. It began to describe the process of installation, and more precisely
its one detail: you will not be able to install the software without connecting
to the Internet. The fact is that before the first launch of the program
requires user registration (free), and sends all the data to the server.
Apparently, the developers had to adopt such measures to combat piracy, but at
the convenience of installation is not affected positively.
The program interface is implemented in compliance with all generally accepted
rules, but, at first glance, somewhat cumbersome. Using the program for the
first time, it seems that it is too complicated, it is sometimes not easy to
recall what the menu tab, or what is the desired option, but long use, the
interface is no longer seems such a terribly difficult. Main previously honor
certificate. A little bit of looking interface, you can begin to build the index.
The process itself is very simple and indexing speed, even at much higher eyes
of all the other exploration of the review. Tests Clear figures show
SearchInform twice and better dtSearch iSYS speed indexing! The program had
indexed data provided in the amount of 20 gigabytes for a record three-time 17
minutes. Yes, and the size of the index has been created by the smallest 4.4-GB
to 100 megabytes less than that of Google Desktop Search.
The program supports, in addition to normal files and folders, also indexed
emails, connectivity and indexing databases (!) , And other external sources (DM
S, CRM), immediately indexing vocabulary can be specified for the morphological
search, well, as well as can be indexed all the attributes of the files. Given
such a complex structure of the index and optimization algorithms deserves
respect! But apart from jet velocity index, the search for information has also
been the fastest, in addition, the size of your index file again, the smallest!
It would seem there is no way that all the parameters above-something always has
to be paid, however, SearchInform-apparent exception to the law of energy
After creating the index, while attempting to hold the first test search, the
documents could lead to some confusion: "here are two types of search, and what
they want from me? ". As mentioned earlier is the main reading certificate, then
everything will be clear. The program really know how to carry out two types of
searches is a phrase search and retrieval of documents similar in their content
to the text of the request.
Description of all the main functions to analyze the search query was cited
above, it is only possible to list search provided by the program. To begin with
the search phrase: of course, Stemming, tsitatny search, logical operations,
with search syntax parsing words (search for the top floor at the end, in the
middle portion or the full match), mixed tsitatny search (when all the words in
the query must in the present paper, but not necessarily in the order you
entered), search corrected errors, use of synonyms, "almost tsitatny search" (search
imposed by phrases such as quotations, but among the entries words may attend
other words), etc. Some of the options have specific preferences. Moreover, it
is possible to use the dictionary unimportant words, the program already have a
ready list of those words also can be used for search priority vocabulary words
(it is, of course, have to fill myself).
That is, in principle, briefly probezhali all major opportunities phrase search.
Now becomes understandable reason for the small congestion interface
functionality - something could hardly fitted in a few buttons!
Now for the review of this program is to highlight search of similar documents.
The developers claim that this is not a simple text search, it is "similar
search" - that is how he described them everywhere, well, yes Ok, you can call
the drop is the main point. Short searches on the Internet can quickly provide
information that the so-called "similar" search-revolutionary development in the
field of text analysis. The system allows text to find similar meaning it is for
content. The most pleasing was the fact that after the test queries proved that
the theory is the same as the practice! The program really looking for documents
related to the content and displays them in a list, organized by percentage
resemblance. Well that is to say? Commendable!
Next, consider that offers SearchInform (particularly its corporate version of
SearchInform Corporate) for an enterprise network. It turns out that here, too,
all at the right level. There are two types of applications: server-side and
custom. The server portion alone handles indexes specified, and users can use
them to search, depending on their assigned access rights. Users can be set
automatically using Windows accounts (in the professional language SearchInform
NTFS uses Windows authentication) and manually (users will need to add
separately). Each user can allow or deny access to certain indexes, you can also
combine user group. In general preferences for work in the nets from
SearchInform definitely ahead of Google flexibility, and the convenience and
simplicity Ischeyku Server.
Summing up for this program, you can confidently recommend it to be used in all
conditions. If the critical speed and powerful analysis queries, the
SearchInform show itself fully.
