Search prototype

directory : source:/prototypes/03_Search

Goals

  • Search with glob pattern.
  • Measure the time for searching among 50'000 files. There is always two measures to test the caching capacity of the OS.
    • A solution is to generate randomly empty files and folders and create an iso with it which will be stored in the repo.
  • If time is above 1 minute for the first time and above 3 seconds for the seconds then an another solution must be found like an indexing system.

Setup

The file source:/prototypes/03_Search/files.iso.bzip2 contains about 50'000 files and can be mounted with the following commands.

$> bunzip2 files.iso.bzip2
$> mkdir files
$> sudo mount -o loop files.iso files

It will bunzip the file, create a directory files and mount the iso file.

Reference times

Here is some reference times given by the find command.

So .. theses times are very bad...
