During our engagements, especially those focused on scalability and performance, we often use our SPM for Solr and Elasticsearch performance monitoring and alerting solution to ensure we end up with the most optimal indexing and search setup for our clients.
SPM monitors all performance metrics for Solr/SolrCloud and Elasticsearch, as well as for a number of other technologies, and is thus invaluable to both us and our clients during and after the engagement.
During our engagements focused on search relevance we often rely on our Site Search Analytics solution to understand various search metrics that are indicative of search results quality, user search experience and behaviour, etc.
Using this tool we can actually measure the quality of relevance and, ultimately, the effect it has on user experience. With this tool we can visually see the before and after metrics and understand which search relevance-related “knobs” affect quality and how much.
