Lightbulb Optimized SITE SEARCH function

I'm missing a faster sitesearch. I'm not sure if this is the job for a skript or does need some modification of ioFTPD. I noticed that SITE SEARCH on glFTPD is times faster than on ioFTPD and i'm wondering if this could be implemented for ioFTPD too?

Afak, glftpd's site 'search' uses locate. (which is heavily optimized routine) I have no plans in implenting 'search' directly to ftpd core; just wait until someone writes a decent algorithm for the purpose (I'd imagine, that storing directory x times a day, into sql database would do the trick)

ioBanana has a SITE DUPE command that searches in its current_dirs.log. :banana:

@HARM

does SITE DUPE use all old dirs or only directories uploded with ioFTPD?

If not using a file to store searchdata in I dont think you can be much faster on searches than ioA is. Dont think its slow either as is. Used it to search dirtrees with 1000+ folders and 10000+ files and it still doesnt take long.

As I've said before... Configure it properly - don't make it go through unnecessarry subdirs (read: into every reldir). ioA search goes through my 15000+ dirs and gives me result in less than 1 second. That's on a regular IDE drive on crappy VIA controller. Who needs faster search than that?

Ok i will try to optimize my config if possible. i have about 200GB spanned over 3 IDE Drives. Most of the files are music and sorted like /cat/Artist/Album/Title so i have to scan a lot of subfolders. Maybe this slows down the search? I have to wait up to a minute for results. Ok now i give your hints a try. Thanks a lot.
