Hello Андрей,

This is because there is no server-side support for --search yet.

--search filtering is done within the client. However, --limit does
have server-side support, so the server sends log entries only up to
the specified limit. The client can apply its --search filter only to
entries sent by the server.

Protocol and server-side changes would need to be made to improve
this situation. This is possible, but so far, nobody has done the
necessary work. As usual, we welcome patches.
