discoverygarden inc. is pleased to announce the release of the Islandora GSsearcher module. It solves the delays that can occur when GSearch is busy indexing or re-indexing objects in a repository.
When GSearch’s queue is populated, updates made to objects through the front end user interface won’t appear in Solr until the backlog was cleared. The new GSearcher module bypasses the queue to index any modifications as soon as possible. Also, GSearcher removes the need for ActiveMQ between Fedora and GSearch. It greatly reduces the amount of work that GSearch and Solr need to do by only re-indexing an object at most once per Drupal request rather than once every Fedora request.
The development of this module was sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) through a collaborative project with discoverygarden designed to enhance the Islandora platform and repository software stack for the National Agricultural Library. This project was also successful in upgrading data collection and reporting functions for AGRICOLA (AGRICultural OnLine Access), USDA’s public source for worldwide access to more than 4.5 million records of agricultural information.
discoverygarden is committed to enhancing the Islandora open source digital repository software stack and our software developers continue to commit new code and exciting features on a regular basis!
