Subject Re: Checking Optimal Values for BM25
Date Thu, 15 Dec 2016 21:11:33 GMT
Hi Furkan,

in order to change the BM25 parameter values k1 and b, the following XML 
snippet needs to be added in your schema.xml configuration file:

<similarity class="solr.BM25SimilarityFactory">
   <float name="k1">1.3</float>
   <float name="b">0.7</float>

It is even possible to specify the SimilarityFactory on individual index 
fields. See [1] for more details.
