Subject Re: Empty cluster exception
Date Thu, 01 Apr 2010 01:19:53 GMT
The parameters passed to KMeansDriver are as follows:

K = 4
Measure Class = CosineDistanceMeasure
Convergence Delta = 0.001
Max Iterations = 20
No. of Reduce Tasks = 1

The way I use KMeansDriver is by calling the runJob method in my application
passing in above parameters. The initial clusters are generated by calling
the RandomSeedGenerator.buildRandom method.

The error does not happen everytime; it appears randomly. I noticed that it
does not happen when I run the clustering on the data the very first time.
On subsequent runs on the same data it happens. Also its seems to occur if
data size is small, e.g 50 points.
