Untangling the Complexity: How to Boost Magento’s Search Functionality and Overcome the Popular Search Term Cache Conundrum

Magento's search feature boasts a comprehensive tool powered by a popular search term cache, but it is hindered by a significant performance issue. The heavy query load, intended to improve search speed, ironically creates a bottleneck that affects the user experience. This problem stems from an enduring query that overburdens the database, particularly as the search_query table grows, slowing the system down. This issue worsened after the release of Magento 2.3, which inadvertently added to the database CPU load. Possible solutions include indexing on 'store_id' and 'num_results' columns, tweaking the error-prone query, and integrating Elasticsearch, a search engine. However, these solutions potentially bring their own challenges and need careful testing, monitoring, and optimization to maintain long-term performance and scalability.
