The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score. (20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.) Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) * 80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What is Indexing and Search?

Indexing and search tools require several key features in order to be considered a quality option for purchase. The IT Central Station community discussed some the aspects that they considered most important: the speed and frequency of indexing rated high on the list, as did customization of the tool's features (specifically overhead customization). Additionally the breadth and depth of indexing that it is capable of doing will tell a lot about an indexing/search tool. Other features mentioned include good tech support, rollout ease, scalability in all directions, and accurate search results that can be drilled down. A few members even suggested that email search, clean user interface, virtual machines operability, and file copying were factors to consider as well.

What do you think of IDOL?

Valuable Features: Connectors and CFS. • Improvements to My Organization: Speed improvements over older Fetch architecture. • Room for Improvement: Understanding how to optimize Lua Scripting configuration to improve performance. Lua Scripts added to a CFS configuration can cause the CFS processing to slow down, if the scripts are not scoped to only run against specific indexing jobs or database content. Having some guidelines or best practices on this topic would be very helpful. • Use of Solution: Less than 1 year • Deployment Issues: No issues with deployment. • Stability Issues: Nope • Implementation Team: In-house
