faiss-server

faiss-server provides gRPC services to for similarity search using faiss. It is written in C++ and now supports only CPU environments.

Installation

Currently, installation is from source only.

$ git clone https://github.com/ynqa/faiss-server
$ cd faiss-server

To build faiss-server on your local, please use cmake.

$ mkdir build; cd build
$ cmake ..
$ make

[Beta] To build as docker image:

$ docker build -t faiss-server .

Demo

  1. Create indexed file, which is composed of the word vectors. Indexed words are on text8 corpus and those vectors are trained by word2vec model of gensim.
$ python example/indexing/indexing.py
  1. Select the indexed file and then execute faiss-server. $ ./build/bin/faiss_server -file_path example/indexing/faiss.index
  • If you build with docker: $ docker run -p 8080:8080 -v $(pwd)/example/indexing:/tmp faiss-server -file_path /tmp/faiss.index
  1. Throw the requests for similarity search $ PYTHONPATH=python python example/client/search.py

Usage

faiss_server:
    -file_path (index file name) type: string default: ""
    -host (host of faiss server) type: string default: "0.0.0.0"
    -port (port of faiss server) type: string default: "8080"
    -top_k (default number of neighbor) type: uint64 default: 5
