When you index text into IDOL Content Component, it stores each term that the text contains with a weight that indicates the relevance that this term has to IDOL Content Component content.

The TermGetInfo action allows you to return the weight of specified terms, the number of documents that the terms occur in, and the total number of times that the terms occur.


This action uses port 9000 to request statistical information about the term cat from IDOL Content Component, which is located on a machine with the IP address
