Are there CPU limitations?

I'm considering using Flying Sphinx for my Heroku app & I was just wondering if there are any CPU limitations. (Websolr limits how many queries per second can be performed). Rather than have another scalability issue I'd prefer to find a plan with unlimited queries as we only need to index a few hundred MB of data.

    Hi John

    There's no CPU capping for the search daemon on Flying Sphinx, and there's no limits on the number of queries overall, nor the number of queries per second. Granted, all listed plans are shared servers, so there are other daemons, and that will impact on how many resources are available for yours. If you find it's not working as well as you'd like, we can talk about a dedicated host, but I'd recommend trying it out (perhaps on a staging site first?) to see if the standard setup works well for you.
