Re: Understanding boost?

it would seem that Neville has 48 fields in his index.

Yes, there are 48 fields.

But around 17 fields are marked as :index => :no because they are only
used as detail in the retrieved doc and not for indexing purposes.

Shouldn’t that affect both the coord factor and the :all_fields
expansion ?

Kind Regards

Yes, that’s a good idea. It wouldn’t be too much trouble to modify
Index to only add indexed fields to the :all_fields value. I’ll change
this in the next release. Even with 17 fields though it may still be
worth setting :all_fields up yourself, but I have no idea what is in
those 17 fields so I may be wrong. By the way, the coord factors
devisor will always be equal to the size of :all_fields in this type
of query so I just need to fix the setting of :all_fields.
