Subject Question on Dismax plugin
Date Mon, 11 Apr 2011 20:12:52 GMT
All,

I have a question on the Dismax plugin for the search handler.  I have
two test instances of Solr.  In one I am using the default search
handler.  In this case, the fields that I am working with (slug and
story) are indexed via the all_text filed and the searches are done on
the all_text field.

For the other one I have configured a search handler using the dismax
plugin as shown below.

 

<requestHandler name="mydismax" class="solr.SearchHandler" >

    <lst name="defaults">

     <str name="defType">dismax</str>

     <str name="echoParams">explicit</str>

     <float name="tie">0.01</float>

     <str name="qf">

        story^3.0 slug^0.2

     </str>

     <int name="ps">100</int>

     <str name="q.alt">*:*</str>

     </lst>

  </requestHandler>

 

To make testing easier, I only have 4 (same) documents in both indexes
with the word "Obama" appearing inside as described below.

 

File 1:: The word Obama appears zero times in "slug" field and four
times in "story" field

File 2:: The word Obama appears zero times in "slug" field and thrice in
"story" field

File 3:: The word Obama appears zero times in "slug" field and two times
in "story" field

File 4:: The word Obama appears One time in "slug" field and one time in
"story" field

 

 

Here is the order of the documents in the order of decreasing scores
from the search results

 

Dismax Search Handler (steadily decreasing scores):

*         File 1:: The word Obama appears zero times in "slug" field and
four times in "story" field

*         File 4:: The word Obama appears One time in "slug" field and
one time in "story" field

*         File 2:: The word Obama appears zero times in "slug" field and
thrice in "story" field

*         File 3:: The word Obama appears zero times in "slug" field and
two times in "story" field

 

Standard Search handler:

*         File 1:: The word Obama appears zero times in "slug" field and
four times in "story" field

*         File 2:: The word Obama appears zero times in "slug" field and
thrice in "story" field (same score as File 4 score below)

*         File 4:: The word Obama appears One time in "slug" field and
one time in "story" field (same score as File 2 score above)

*         File 3:: The word Obama appears zero times in "slug" field and
two times in "story" field

 

 

My question, why is dismax showing "File 4:: The word Obama appears One
time in "slug" field and one time in "story" field" 

ahead of 

"File 2:: The word Obama appears zero times in "slug" field and thrice
in "story" field" given that I have boosted these fields as shown below.


     

<str name="qf">

        story^3.0 slug^0.2

</str>

 

I would have thought that the ""File 4:: The word Obama appears One time
in "slug" field and one time in "story" field" would have gone all the
way done in the result list.

 

Any help is appreciated

Thanks much in advance

Raj
