Technical Notes

A single-server installation consists in installing Antidot solution on a single server.

From a logical standpoint, the Antidot solution is composed of the following:

  • AIF - data-processing and indexing: composed of the following modules: crawlers (access to data), indexers (document analysis), data managers, and metadata.
  • AFS - reply: composed of different software modules (ACP, Spellcheck, Content Repository, Click) in charge of responding to the Query Manager (main module receiving queries).
  • Back Office: in charge of recording queries for statistical, analysis, and audit purposes. The Back Office goes along with the Update Manager, a component that manages the deployment of AIF-generated indexes toward AFS responders.

The system composed of indexing modules and the Back Office is called Back-End AFS.

The system composed of response agents and RMS is called Front-End AFS.

The platform can host the AIF, AFS, and Back Office environments on as many servers as needed.

The following picture shows the architecture of a single-server installation:
