Leading Practices for Improving Search Response Time

The search response time is the time your Coveo Cloud organization takes to provide results when a user sends a query. The typical search response time is well under one second.

Nonetheless, some factors may imperceptibly or noticeably increase this response time. End-users, administrators, or developers can leverage Coveo features that create more complex queries, which then require more resources and therefore notably or significantly increases the search response time. Complex queries can be legitimate and should complete successfully.

You can use this topic to troubleshoot longer-than-expected search response times. If following these recommendation does not improve the Coveo Cloud response time, contact Coveo Support.

Search performance or load tests must be planned with and authorized by Coveo (see Can I Conduct a Performance Test on Coveo?).
