Search speed performance

Enterprise is great.....but whenever you replace an older system.....you hear from users about any shortcomings it has compared to the old system.

 

One is search speed. Searching for PDFs of our drawings takes around 6-10 seconds in Enterprise on our test server. There are about 70,000 PDFs being searched. In the legacy home built system it takes about 1 second. First thing the users noticed of course.

 

So does this search time sound right for something that only returns around 10 files? What on the server affects search time most? This is a test system and the server is little older (2007). The memory on it is pushing 2.7gb total usage which seems a little high....most of it is SQL (1.8gb)
