Tuning default search type (edismax)

-- UlrichLeodolter - 24 Dec 2018

I have installed latest Foswiki and SolrPlugin (solr-5.5.5).

Our users complain that they *cannot find what they are searching for" and "get too much unrelated results".

I tried to analyze this vague description, especially the second one. I get the feeling that edismax returns too much results, below is just one example.

%SOLRSEARCH{"Leodolter Wiki"}%       - 44 results
%SOLRSEARCH{"Leodolter AND Wiki"}%   - 44 results
%SOLRSEARCH{"Leodolter OR Wiki"}%    - 1023 results

%SOLRSEARCH{"Leodolter Wiki" type="edismax"}%      - 236 results
%SOLRSEARCH{"Leodolter AND Wiki" type="edismax"}%  - 236 results
%SOLRSEARCH{"Leodolter OR Wiki" type="edismax"}%   - 1650 results

In solrconfig.xml there is an mm (minimum matches) parameter commented out. Should i play using this parameter?

What is the default für mm ?

I would like to tune solr to behave more like standard search mode, i think our users expect AND as default. There should be no or less results which match only one of the search tearms.
