When I check my watchdog logs, I always wonder if any of the searches didn't return any results. There is only one way to learn it, searching the same keywords again which creates another watchdog entry. Attached patch improves the watchdog message by adding number of search results and the elapsed time.

Patch also includes search result display improvements for the searcher. You can see the difference in the screenshot.

I really like this feature
rerolled with minor changes

1. there should be a problem with pager, I did not test that
2. the search statistics should be above the results, as it is displayed on picture #2

need some help from someone who better understand this theming stuff here

3. part of the watchdog message is stored as translated
'@result' => format_plural($pager_total_items[0], '1 match', '@count matches')

how should I correct this?

This is a feature change, and feature changes go to 7.x-dev.

Also, there are unresolved comments as per the last comment, so I'm setting this to CNW.

This still seems like a useful feature for Core.

Sure... Right now my priority is to fix the bugs in search.module, so it is unlikely that this feature will be addressed. We would also have to consider the performance implications of this change.

Version: 8.0.x-dev » 8.1.x-dev

Since 8.0.x-beta1 has been released, our policy at this point is No feature requests until 8.1.x. See #2350615: [policy, no patch] What changes can be accepted during the Drupal 8 beta phase?. Sorry, it's just too late for 8.0.x at this point, so even if we had a viable patch, the core committers would not commit it. So unless we decide this is a Task or a Bug (and I don't think it is), we'll have to delay it.

Version: 8.1.x-dev » 8.2.x-dev

Drupal 8.1.0-beta1 was released on March 2, 2016, which means new developments and disruptive changes should now be targeted against the 8.2.x-dev branch. For more information see the Drupal 8 minor version schedule and the Allowed changes during the Drupal 8 release cycle.
