Configure HPE Answer Server Systems

To set up your answer server, you must configure one or more systems to use to retrieve questions. The [Systems] configuration section contains a list of systems that you want to configure.

The order in which you specify the systems is also the default order in which HPE Answer Server requests answers from the systems. You can override this ordering for an individual action (see Ask Questions in HPE Answer Server).

[Systems]
0=MyFactBank
1=MyAnswerBank

For each of these systems, you then create a configuration section with the same name, which contains the settings for that system.

NOTE:

System names are case-sensitive.

Configure a Fact Bank System

For a Fact Bank system, you must set Type to factbank. You must also configure the question parser grammars, the fact store, and the location of the coding files.

[MyFactBank]
Type=factbank
// Question Parser
EductionQuestionGrammars=FactBankEductionGrammar.ecr
EductionTimeGrammars=datetime_processing.ecr
// Fact Store
BackendType=Content
IDOLHost=localhost
IDOLACIPort=10050
// Coding Files
CodingsPath=./codings
CodingsDatPath=./codings

For more information, see Set Up a Fact Bank System.

Configure an Answer Bank System

For an Answer Bank system, you must set Type to answerbank. You must also configure the host and port of the Agentstore component that you are using as the Answer Bank.

[MyAnswerBank]
Type=answerbank
IDOLHost=localhost
IDOLACIPort=6000

For more information, see Set Up an Answer Bank System.

Configure a Passage Extractor System

For a Passage Extractor system, you must set Type to passageextractor. You must also configure the host and port of the IDOL Content component data store, as well as the Eduction grammars and Agentstore components to use for entity extraction. You can also optionally define the locations of the classifier file and label file to allow you to save your training classifiers.

[MyPassageExtractor]
Type=PassageExtractor
// Data store IDOL
IdolHost=localhost
IdolAciport=6002
// Entity Agentstore
AgentStoreHost=localhost
AgentStoreAciport=5002
// Eduction 
EductionGrammars=pe_grammar.ecr,NUM.ecr,HUM.ecr,date_eng.ecr,money_eng.ecr
// Classifier Files
ClassifierFile=en_svm.dat
LabelFile=en_labels.dat
