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 IndexSplitVectors : public faiss::Index
#include <MetaIndexes.h>

splits input vectors in segments and assigns each segment to a sub-index used to distribute a MultiIndexQuantizer

Public Functions

explicit IndexSplitVectors(idx_t d, bool threaded = false)

sum of dimensions seen so far

void add_sub_index(Index*)
void sync_with_sub_indexes()
virtual void add(idx_t n, const float *x) override

Add n vectors of dimension d to the index.

Vectors are implicitly assigned labels ntotal .. ntotal + n - 1 This function slices the input vectors in chunks smaller than blocksize_add and calls add_core.

Parameters

x – input matrix, size n * d

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

query n vectors of dimension d to the index.

return at most k vectors. If there are not enough results for a query, the result array is padded with -1s.

Parameters
  • x – input vectors to search, size n * d

  • labels – output labels of the NNs, size n*k

  • distances – output pairwise distances, size n*k

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 reset() override

removes all elements from the database.
