      Description

      Hi
      By converting the XML collection (2.8 million documents) to TREC (.trec) collection and using single-pass incremental indexing (terrier batchindexing -j) the indexing time significantly reduced (on virtual machine with 50 GB physical RAM). However, the batch retrieval takes unnecessarily longer time especially for fielded retrieval (BM25F).

      Could we increase the query processing time by adding configuration in the terrier.properties file or doing some addition in the command-line?

      Kind Regards
