Rated 5 out of 5 by Volker Thiel 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.

I'm trying to download the extension, however the link/key is not working.
You don't have permission to access /community/Dnd_Patchind*****/ on this server.
Please check and provide alternative link to download the extension.

Rated 0 out of 5 by worldofbooks 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.

Rated 0 out of 5 by Discovery 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!

Rated 0 out of 5 by VernBurton Developer's website lists this extension as 1.4+ and this isn't a true fact. Extension has no documentation. No support information is included in the extension, nor does the website have any. They just link to the main entities' contact us form. This is very poor quality extension for a Magento Silver Partner. If this extension was updated into current releases, they could easily sell it. This extension is not easily usable after 1.4.x, I do not recommend attempting if you don't feel comfortable with developing a Magento extension.
