Subject [jira] Updated: (LUCENE-836) Benchmarks Enhancements (precision/recall, TREC, Wikipedia)

Doron Cohen updated LUCENE-836:
-------------------------------

    Attachment: lucene-836.benchmark.quality.patch

lucene-836.benchmark.quality.patch adds a new package "quality" under o.a.l.benchmark. 

This is also followup to some of http://www.mail-archive.com/java-dev@lucene.apache.org/msg10851.html

Patch is based on trunk folder. 
Fastest way to test it: "ant test" from contrib/benchmark dir.
To see more output in this run, try "ant test -Dtests.verbose=true".

This is early code, not ready to commit - wanted to show it sooner for feedback, especially
the API. 

For a quick view of the API see benchmark.quality at http://people.apache.org/~doronc/api
(note that not much javadocs yet - I would wait with that for API closure.)

Code in this patch is:
  - extendable.
  - can run a quality benchmark.
  - report quality results, comparing to given judgements (optional).
  - create a submission log (optional).
  - format of submission log can be modified, by extending a logger class.
  - format of inputs - queries, judgments - can be modified, by extending 
    default readers, or by providing pre-read ones.

There is a general "Judge" interface - answering if a given doc name is valid for a given
"QualityQuery". And one implementation of it, based on Trec's QRels. The alternative of TRels,
for instance, would mean another implementation of the "Judge" interface. (I would love a
better name for it, btw...)

A new TestQualityRun tests this package on the Reuters collection - so that test source is
a good place to start, to see how to run a quality test.

> Would be great if the benchmark contrib had a way of providing precision/recall benchmark
information ala TREC.  I don't know what the copyright issues are for the TREC queries/data
(I think the queries are available, but not sure about the data), so not sure if the is even
feasible, but I could imagine we could at least incorporate support for it for those who have
access to the data.  It has been a long time since I have participated in TREC, so perhaps
someone more familiar w/ the latest can fill in the blanks here.
> Another option is to ask for volunteers to create queries and make judgments for the
Reuters data, but that is a bit more complex and probably not necessary.  Even so, an Apache
licensed set of benchmarks may be useful for the community as a whole.  Hmmm.... 
> Wikipedia might be another option instead of Reuters to setup as a download for benchmarking,
as it is quite large and I believe the licensing terms are quite amenable.  Having a larger
collection would be good for stressing Lucene more and would give many users a demonstration
of how Lucene handles large collections.
> At any rate, this kind of information could be useful for people looking at different
indexing schemes, formats, payloads and different query strategies.
