Hyperlinking and Suggestions

Hyperlinking refers to the ability for IDOL to connect related documents to results. This is implemented with the Suggest action.

The Suggest action picks the highest weighted terms for a specified document, and returns a set of documents based on those terms. The terms to suggest on are drawn from the configured source fields for the specified document.

Generally speaking there is a compromise between the quality of the suggested documents and the performance of the Suggest action. You might need to experiment with parameters to find the right settings for a particular application.

The fastest configuration has AdvancedSuggest turned off, and uses a small value for SuggestTerms.
