Testing Social Media Modules

We have completed the latest rewrite on the social media modules within each search result and are testing it this week. These modules are very unique - not found in any search engine. We have been refining the modules in accordance to the latest social media trends, so we are using a group of millennials who are testing the functionality.

Load Testing Relevancy Feature

Last week and this week, we have been load testing the new functionality that allows the user to rate how relevant the search results are for a given Keyword Search Group. There were several issues we needed to address and will continue to address. In addition, we are designing database structure updates that will allow us to build functionality where users can re-arrange search results within a given Keyword Search Group.

Load Testing

We are load testing the new functionalities, both last week and this week.

We also started to work on the functionality that allows user to rate how relevant are the search results within a Keyword Search Group.

We created the database structure for that, and laid the foundation the base for further development.

Keyword Search Groups (KSGs) Live

Last week, we made the keyword search groups live on Zabang.

In a few words, users can create their keyword search groups and then can add search results to specific keyword search groups.

After that, other users can search for keywords in specific keyword search groups as well.

We are going to be doing load testing on these new functionalities these next two weeks.

Keyword Search Groups (KSGs) Completed

The Keyword Seach Groups on Zabang are basically completed. We've added all the functionality that we had in mind for the future functionality testing this week. With the new levels of simultaneous users, we continued to fix bugs on the groups last week after making a list of items that needed attention. We will review everything again this week and fix any other bugs that come up.

Load Testing

We are in the second week of load testing the new server and installing the new code.

We have hit some milestones and are moving forward with the new migration of the rest of the social network code this week.

Searching of Keyword Search Groups (KSGs)

We are continuing the load testing for the new server and code for this week and last week, focusing search part of Keyword Search groups. We are in the midst of separating out the specific search results for each keyword search group and ensuring that the database is keeping fidelity to the comments being given in each grouping.

Load Testing

As mentioned last week, we have installed the new virtual testing server for the Beta users, but had to reinstall the system this week after it was not working the way we had planned.

There was code that was mucking up the system and the RAM kept getting used up after about a few hundred comments that were posted for several search results.

This is called "load testing." This is the first round of load testing we are doing and our aim is to keep hitting the system to try and crash it, to see if we can get up to 100,000 simultaneous users on it successfully without crashing. Then we will test to see if we can get 1,000,000.

We are still in the midst of recreating the code this week and next. When this gets done, we will start to implement the beta code and users.
