Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Searching for medical information on the Internet can be tedious and frustrating due to the number of irrelevant entries returned from generic search engines. We have developed MediAgent, a scalable search engine that aims to deliver a web-based medical search solution which is focused, exhaustive and able to keep improving its databases. The software package can run off a single low-end system and be scaled into a client-server, distributed computing architecture for high-end needs. This scalable architecture boosts MediAgent's handling capacity to tens of millions of web pages. In addition to large volume handling, MediAgent is designed to be manageable. All subsystems are not only highly configurable, but also support remote, interactive management and monitoring by the system administrator.
