Dn'D Patch Index URL

The index optimization extension we developed allows a better control over the URLs that need to be generated (or not) and therefore improve the duration of the process.

For example :

With 9500 references (SKU), shared (or not) between 900 categories / Sub-categories and with CMS pages, the number of generated URLs in the «Core_URL_Rewrite» table is about 80 000.

The re-index (launched manually or by CRON) lasts about 3h30.

After this patch deployed, the re-index duration is about 1 minute!

Excellent This extension is very helpful since we run a lot of stores with inactive products and URL-Rewrites takes a lot of time to save. Perfect for all of our stores we implement for customers. October 31, 2013
Extremely useful! Works great! We have about 10,000 SKUs and it takes around a minute now! October 29, 2013
Does what is says! Works like a charm, my core_rule_rewrite went from 440K rows to 178K rows and indexing-time was reduced to an minimum. Great work guys! September 20, 2013
Awesome Extension! Must have! Extension does what it has to do. My personal thanks to the developers. August 28, 2013
Genius!!! This is genius! This fixes a huge flaw in the bloated magento platform. The core_url_rewrite process needs to be as quick as possible since it actually blocks orders from going through. This should be a default option in the magento product. Bravo! July 21, 2013
You'll need this once your store hits 100.000+ products I was faced with a store that features 1.2 mio. unique skus and the number was growing each day by 10 to 50k. The catalog_url index wasn't working anymore and we couldn't throw more ressources at the MySQL server, it was already maxed out. The only solution was reducing the amount of URLs the catalog_url indexer created and this extension kept its promise. I haven't rolled it out to the production server yet but on a identical development server with a reduced catalog size the table core_url_rewrite went from about 50k rows down to 25k while the whole process took a little less than a minute. Of course, your milage may vary depending on your server hardware and the settings in the backend. This particular store only has one store view and no need for the category url to be included in the product urls. March 15, 2013
Page permission issue I'm trying to download the extension, however the link/key is not working. Forbidden You don't have permission to access /community/Dnd_Patchind*****/ on this server. Please check and provide alternative link to download the extension. Thanks February 28, 2013
I can confirm that the speed increase is excellent on version 1.7. Prior to installing this the default url rewrite index would time out with 1.2million SKUs. This plugin completed rewrites in 90 minutes. I would like to run this also on my version 1.5 site and although I can install it without an issue there is no option showing up to enable it. November 22, 2012
Very impressed. I had ~166000 rows in url_rewrite table, ran this and it went up to 170000+. Then I emptied core_url_rewrite in mysql and ran reindex. Now on ~6625 rows which is about right. There have to be performance benefits for not having mysql search such a monster table. Thanks a lot! November 1, 2012
I've tested on low machine and work perfectly! Great Work November 1, 2012
