  • Zusammenfassung

    Experience with the parallelization of an index generator fordesktop search is presented. Several configurations of the index generatorwere compared on Intel platforms with 4, 8 and 32 cores. The optimalconfigurations were not intuitive and markedly different for the threeplatforms. For finding the optimum, detailed measurements and experimentationwere necessary. Several recommendations for parallel softwaredesign follow from this case study.
