Feature requests - checklist

Postby pgk » Sun Aug 17, 2008 9:05 am

Just to keep this list easily accessible, I've copied this form an earlier post (http://forums.x1.com/viewtopic.php?p=11746) in which it was buried. The outcome of the discussion was that Tod was going to go through several feature requests that had been made in the forums. A few have been answered, but there are quite a few more to go. Answers are marked in blue, solutions in green. -pgk

Renaming of the 'more indexing options' button

Request for 'back' and 'forward' buttons to access search history

Search substrings only in filenames (and path?)

I tried to open the link http://forums.x1.com/viewtopic.php?p=10281 but I get You are not authorised to read this forum.

My comment to this is my computer is I/O bound and not CPU bound. I have four cores with hyperthreading and 6GB of memory. However, with the programs that I use, I find the limiting factor is the throughput of the hard drive (yes I know there are good performing SSDs). In fact, using the full I/O capacity of my computer has greater (by observation) impact on performance than full CPU usage as the CPU always seems to keep up.

If I was to throttle, I would limit the I/O throughput and not the CPU usage.

Hmm.. same problem for me. Maybe they closed that section, I think it was a pretty old request. Either way, interesting suggestion. Managing IO should probably be done 'behind the scenes', not as a user option.

Closed for new messages, as far as I can see. But I can't see why people can't get in there.

Try "Search Forums with X1"?

X1 Search 8.5.2 - Build 6001si (64-bit)

No, I have nothing to do with X1, just a user since 2004.
