Throughout the library, vectors are provided as float * pointers. Most algorithms can be optimized when several vectors are processed (added/searched) together in a batch. In this case, they are passed in as a matrix. When n vectors of size d are provided as float * x, component j of vector i is

x[ i * d + j ]

where 0 <= i < n and 0 <= j < d. In other words, matrices are always compact. When specifying the size of the matrix, we call it an n*d matrix, which implies a row-major storage.

Since IVF (inverted file) indexes are of so much use for large-scale use cases, we group a few functions related to them in this small library. Most functions work both on IndexIVFs and IndexIVFs embedded within an IndexPreTransform.

struct BlockInvertedLists : public faiss::InvertedLists
#include <BlockInvertedLists.h>

Inverted Lists that are organized by blocks.

Different from the regular inverted lists, the codes are organized by blocks of size block_size bytes that reprsent a set of n_per_block. Therefore, code allocations are always rounded up to block_size bytes. The codes are also aligned on 32-byte boundaries for use with SIMD.

To avoid misinterpretations, the code_size is set to (size_t)(-1), even if arguably the amount of memory consumed by code is block_size / n_per_block.

The writing functions add_entries and update_entries operate on block-aligned data.
