Making Bugzilla Searches Faster

Filed under: Tips — gerv @ 10:14 pm

People often wonder how to make searches in Bugzilla faster on large installations. Two things will give you the most bang for the buck:

  • Specify you only want open bugs (if that’s true)
  • Specify a product (and, if you know it, a component) to search

Do those two things, and your searches will be much faster.

Coincidentally enough, Bugzilla’s “Simple Search” (BMO version) allows you to specify precisely those two things.
