does "load index" help for fulltext search?

(originally posted in database.myodbc by mistake)

I'm trying to speed up a fulltext search (MySQL 5.0.21, table has
670,000 records, about 900MBytes, machine has 1GB memory).

Fulltext search speed is quite variable -- sometimes really fast,
sometimes quite slow, so I'm trying to identify ways to make it more
consistent.
Most recently I tried "load index into cache testtable;". This
doesn't appear to have any significant impact on fulltext search speed
- some searches are a bit faster, some a bit slower. Should "load
index" improve mysql fulltext search performance? If so, any idea how
much?

I read a while back that MySQL will only use one index per query. (If this is not so, please tell me and point me to a doc that gives a good explanation of MySQL's current index usage policy).

Does anyone know of any Libraries using .NET for the Indexing, Search, and Retrieval of Text Documents? I am searching for API's to analyze a set of docs and convert text into indexable tokens, create indices and then harvest query results from those indicies. Similar to Apache's Jakarta Lucene project: a high-performance, full-featured text search engine library. http://jakarta.apache.org/lucene/docs/api/index.html

I was looking for a function or method that would return the index to the first matching element in a list. Coming from a C++ STL background, I thought it might be called "find". My first stop was the Sequence Types page of the Library Reference (http://docs.python.org/lib/typesseq.html); it wasn't there. A search of the Library Reference's index seemed to confirm that the function did not exist. A little later I realized it might be called...

Using GridView and SqlDataSource I found that an index field defaults to "ReadOnly=True" and I have to change it to False and then hide it before my sql UPDATE command works. This seems awkward and I was wondering if there was a better way of getting a GridView to work with MS SQL. GridView1: -SelectCommand = "SELECT * FROM xxx" -UpdateCommand="UPDATE xxx SET yyy WHERE =@index; The SELECT gets "index". If I explicitly code the select so...

I was wondering if a command like "SqlDataSource1.insert()" can somehow give me the new index that was created when the insert took place. If the insert always occurs at the end of the dataset then I assume something like "...Count" could be used to figure out where the insert is going to take place. I am not sure if there is a "Count" in SqlDataSource. Unfortunately, I didnt see a callback for something like "ItemInserted" which would give...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
