yes, exactly. But the output that I get upon running FPGrowth on the input file for support
11 is as below :
12 X
11 X Y Z
isn't that what you are getting too?
and this is what I get for for support = 1
12 X
10 X Y
11 X Y Z
4 Y

> Project: Mahout
> Issue Type: Bug
> Components: Frequent Itemset/Association Rule Mining
> Affects Versions: 0.4
> Environment: Mac OS X, Linux

> FPGrowth reports the support of itemsets individually  in that  if Item X appears "individually"
12 times and appears with item Y 10 times (a total of 22 times) AND item Y appears "individually"
4 times (a total of 14 times) then this is what the output will be (say for minsupport 2)
> 12 X
> 10 XY
> 4 Y
> Instead of
> 22 X
> 10 XY
> 14 Y
> Also, because of this If the minimum support is 5 then the output will look like :
> 12 X
> 10 X Y
> Thus totally Ignoring Y
> if the minimum support is 11 then the output will look like
> 12 X
> again Ignoring Y
> if the minimum support is 13 then there will be NO output. even though all the way along
Xs support was 22 and Y's was 14
> Even if we want to show just the maximal itemsets (although i would like to see ALL the
frequent itemsets  maximal or not) this output is wrong as with a support of 13 we should
still have seen X(22) and Y(14)
> Now Say you add XYZ 11 times
> for support 1 you'd see
> 12 X
> 10 X Y
> 11 X Y Z
> 4 Y
> And for support 11 you'd see
> 12 X
> 11 X Y Z
> Although I'd expect the output (for both s=1 & s=11) to be
> 33 X
> 25 Y
> 21 XY
> 11 Z
> 11 XZ
> 11 YZ
> 11 XYZ
