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.

This source code is licensed under the MIT license found in the LICENSE file in the root directory of this source tree. 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.

Variables

FAISS_API int index2layer_sa_encode_bs
struct Index2Layer : public faiss::IndexFlatCodes
#include <Index2Layer.h>

Same as an IndexIVFPQ without the inverted lists: codes are stored sequentially

The class is mainly inteded to store encoded vectors that can be accessed randomly, the search function is not implemented.

Public Functions

Index2Layer(Index *quantizer, size_t nlist, int M, int nbit = 8, MetricType metric = METRIC_L2)
Index2Layer()
~Index2Layer()
virtual void train(idx_t n, const float *x) override

Perform training on a representative set of vectors

Parameters:
  • n – nb of training vectors

  • x – training vecors, size n * d

virtual void search(idx_t n, const float *x, idx_t k, float *distances, idx_t *labels, const SearchParameters *params = nullptr) const override

not implemented

virtual DistanceComputer *get_distance_computer() const override

Get a DistanceComputer (defined in AuxIndexStructures) object for this kind of index.

DistanceComputer is implemented for indexes that support random access of their vectors.

void transfer_to_IVFPQ(IndexIVFPQ &other) const

transfer the flat codes to an IVFPQ index

virtual void sa_encode(idx_t n, const float *x, uint8_t *bytes) const override

encode a set of vectors

Parameters:
  • n – number of vectors

  • x – input vectors, size n * d

  • bytes – output encoded vectors, size n * sa_code_size()

virtual void sa_decode(idx_t n, const uint8_t *bytes, float *x) const override

decode a set of vectors

Parameters:
  • n – number of vectors

  • bytes – input encoded vectors, size n * sa_code_size()

  • x – output vectors, size n * d
