we are using fast search for sharepoint 2010. We are crawling an external data source and this is used for search queries. we have around 30 metadata properties and all are full-text indexed.
however, the search operation is slow for a database of 5k records in intranet (webserver and database server are in different geographic regions). typically a 100 item search takes 9-10 sec.
it get worse over internet and the search query varies from 10-45 sec for 100 items.
Any pointers will be helpful.
