Benchmarking Results When Crawling External Sites Using FAST Search Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone out there is using FAST Search to crawl external sites that are not maintained by them.  If so how many were you able to crawl, what was your documents per second, and what type of hardware set up did you use?  Is there any articles out there that have done tests doing this, or provide some specs, taking into account the fact that you don't have control over the speed at which another companies site's server can respond during a crawl?  I have only found lab tests done by Microsoft, to which I can only assume they were using internal sites/documents (for example  If FAST Search is not the product for this type of crawling, is there another product out there?  Thanks.
