Dummy class, only here to support initialization of Weights from Queries.

NAME

KinoSearch::Search::MultiSearcher - Aggregate results from multiple searchers.

SYNOPSIS

    my $schema = MySchema->new;
    for my $server_name (@server_names) {
        push @searchers, KinoSearch::Search::SearchClient->new(
            peer_address => "$server_name:$port",
            password     => $pass,
            schema       => $schema,
        );
    }
    my $multi_searcher = KinoSearch::Search::MultiSearcher->new(
        searchables => \@searchers,
        schema      => $schema,
    );
    my $hits = $multi_searcher->search( query => $query );

DESCRIPTION

Aside from the arguments to its constructor, MultiSearcher looks and acts just like a KinoSearch::Searcher object, albeit with some limitations.

The primary use for MultiSearcher is to aggregate results from several remote searchers via SearchClient, diffusing the cost of searching a large corpus over multiple machines.

Limitations

At present, SortSpec is not supported by MultiSearcher. Also, note that QueryFilter is not supported by SearchClient.

METHODS

new

Constructor. Takes two hash-style parameters, both of which are required.
