Subject [jira] [Created] (SOLR-3747) Solr Score threshold 'reasonably', independent of results returned?
Date Tue, 21 Aug 2012 02:26:38 GMT
Ramzi Alqrainy created SOLR-3747:

             Summary: Solr Score threshold 'reasonably', independent of results returned?

                 Key: SOLR-3747
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Schema and Analysis
            Reporter: Ramzi Alqrainy

Usually, search results are sorted by their score (how well the document matched the query),
but it is common to need to support the sorting of supplied data too.

Boosting affects the scores of matching documents in order to affect ranking in score-sorted
search results. Providing a boost value, whether at the document or field level, is optional.

When the results are returned with scores, we want to be able to only "keep" results that
are above some score (i.e. results of a certain quality only). Is it possible to do this when
the returned subset could be anything?

I ask because it seems like on some queries a score of say 0.008 is resulting in a decent
match, whereas other queries a higher score results in a poor match.

I have written pseudo code to accomplish what I said

      double scoreLimit = 0.75  #For example
      searchResults = new Results[numberOfResults];
      boolean lastScore=false;
      solrSearchResults = Calling Solr Engine.
      for( Result result : solrSearchResults) {
        if (lastScore != false && result.score/lastScore<scoreLimit) break;
        	lastScore = result.score;
            Adding new result to searchResults array
