    Multiple versus a single collection search with Verity

    Level 7
      I have a simple question about Verity search collection.

      We have been using verity for a number of years, but we have never done
      any real performance testing in regards to a single collection versus many.

      All documentation and articles argue for multiple small collections when
      indexing for better indexing performance. But what is the performance
      hit when searching 2 collections instead of 1 combined collection?

      How about 4 collections instead of 1?
