Make search faster: disable file or bleve?

Hello!

We’re super happy with Mattermost (6.1 on Debian buster), but with the growing number of posts (25 users, 80k posts), the search is super slow now: typically 10s.

Would you have some advice to make it faster? What do you think about these potential ideas?

  1. Disable file search: searching within files is not useful for us, would it be possible to disable it? How could I do that? Would it make search faster?
  2. Use Bleve: is it stable enough? Would it make search faster?
  3. Would there be any PHP settings that I should modify? Or in the Rate Limiting section? (I currently have the default parameters: Maximum Queries per Second:10 / Maximum Burst Size:100, Memory Store Size: 10000)
  4. I have read about Elasticsearch, but it looks complex to install and manage, isn’t it?

Thank you very much for your support!
