Search Limitations - Scalability

The search has currently limitations and scalability issues.

1 ) search that returns > 90,000 series is very slow or  fails.

2 ) search across multiple polygons ( > 20 polygons) is slow or fails.

3) search across a very large area fails.

4) search across multiple keywords ( > 5 keywords is slow or fails

How should HydroDesktop manage expectations for these use cases?

Show a warning if user selects too large area or too many keywords?

Show a warning "Not all search results were returned" (if hydroCatalog returns more series than can be displayed in the map)

Include this information (suggested size of search area and number of keywords) in the search help?

Stop the search / only show the results returned so far if the search takes too long to respond?
