struct faiss::ivflib::SlidingIndexWindow

A set of IndexIVFs concatenated together in a FIFO fashion. at each “step”, the oldest index slice is removed and a new index is added.

Public Functions

SlidingIndexWindow(Index *index)

index should be initially empty and trained

void step(const Index *sub_index, bool remove_oldest)

  • remove_oldest – if true, remove the oldest slices

int n_slice

number of slices currently in index

size_t nlist

same as index->nlist

std::vector<std::vector<size_t>> sizes
