The Query Engine (AFS-QE) is in charge of providing fast, accurate, and reliable results to user queries.

AFS-QE

It can scale up to handling several hundred different search engines, and tens of millions of user queries in the same datacenter.

The Query Engine is made of several components:

  • Web services (search, acp, click) provide the basic search engine functionality: searches, completions, and logging.
  • The Query Manager is in charge of managing the search engines (including automatic detection of their creation and deletion) and of notifying agents when their reply databases are updated.
  • The Log Manager stores rich logs about the use of the search engine (including session information, use of facets, and so on).
  • The Content Repository is the AFS v7 service in charge of storing and giving access to the indexed documents (content web service).
  • The Update Manager is in charge of installing and synchronizing reply databases and configuration items.
