  • Hello Lemur Team,

    I posted a problem i was facing about a week ago on an error i am getting trying to use DistRetEval. I have realized that, this same question had been asked a number of times but no answers or solution was given. I have read and done everything possible to resolve this problem , but no avail. Below is my parameter file for the DistRetEval , everything thing else works fine

    <parameters>
    <index>/home/ubuntu/Ghansah/dfIndex.key</index>
    <collCounts>/home/ubuntu/Ghansah/dfCounts</collCounts>
    <textQuery>/home/ubuntu/Ghansah/let.txt</textQuery>
    <ranksFile>/home/ubuntu/Ghansah/Ret_Rank/rank.txt</ranksFile>
    <resultFile>/home/ubuntu/Ghansah/Ret_Result/result.txt</resultFile>
    <mergeMethod>0</mergeMethod>
    <database1>/home/ubuntu/Ghansah/db1.txt</database1>
    <database2>/home/ubuntu/Ghansah/db2.txt</database2>
    <cutoff>5</cutoff>
    <resultCount>60</resultCount>
    </parameters>

    and the db parameter files are

    <parameters>
    <index>/home/ubuntu/Ghansah/one-index/one-index.key</index>
    <retModel>inquery</retModel>
    </parameters>

    <parameters>
    <index>/home/ubuntu/Ghansah/two-index/two-index.key</index>
    <retModel>inquery</retModel>
    </parameters>

    The error message is
