Hi , how are you guys? I was thinking on using apache solr in one of our servers and some questions arrived to my mind.

1) The plugin just works out of the box? Doesnt it need any kind of manual configuration/tunning?
2) The users will notice improvements without changing anything on outlook?
3) We have 8 cores CPU and 8GB of ram , and we handle 70GB of mails aprox.. will this dramatically increase the resources usage?

Thank a lot for all the information.. I guess that this answers will help us decide if its worth it or not.

Thanks!

Hello @::Gomez::,

Increased memory usage is the most common performance report we receive, but actual usage depends how active your mail server is (and how large mailboxes are). The link provided in the earlier post is useful if you need to increase the Solr memory limit.

Thank you.
