Package org.apache.lucene.benchmark.quality Description

Search Quality Benchmarking.

This package allows to benchmark search quality of a Lucene application.

In order to use this package you should provide:

For benchmarking TREC collections with TREC QRels, take a look at the trec package.

Here is a sample code used to run the TREC 2006 queries 701-850 on the .Gov2 collection:

    File topicsFile = new File("topics-701-850.txt");
    File qrelsFile = new File("qrels-701-850.txt");
    Searcher searcher = new IndexSearcher("index");

    int maxResults = 1000;
    String docNameField = "docname"; 
    PrintWriter logger = new PrintWriter(System.out,true); 

    // use trec utilities to read trec topics into quality queries
    TrecTopicsReader qReader = new TrecTopicsReader();
    QualityQuery qqs[] = qReader.readQueries(new BufferedReader(new FileReader(topicsFile)));
    // prepare judge, with trec utilities that read from a QRels file
    Judge judge = new TrecJudge(new BufferedReader(new FileReader(qrelsFile)));
    // validate topics & judgments match each other
    judge.validateData(qqs, logger);
    // set the parsing of quality queries into Lucene queries.
    QualityQueryParser qqParser = new SimpleQQParser("title", "body");
    // run the benchmark
    QualityBenchmark qrun = new QualityBenchmark(qqs, qqParser, searcher, docNameField);
    SubmissionReport submitLog = null;
    QualityStats stats[] = qrun.execute(maxResults, judge, submitLog, logger);
    // print an avarage sum of the results
    QualityStats avg = QualityStats.average(stats);
    avg.log("SUMMARY",2,logger, "  ");
