Here is some link to some public datasets (sequence databases) for testing sequential pattern mining algorithms:

BMS-WebView-1 (the first of the three KDD CUP 2000 datasets which are sometimes called "Gazelle") : click-stream data from a webstore named Gazelle

Original format: BMS1.dat SPMF format: BMS1_spmf

The Kosarak dataset. a click-stream dataset from a hungarian news portal:

MSNBC dataset of click-stream data that you can download from:

http://archive.ics.uci.edu/ml/datasets/MSNBC.com+Anonymous+Web+Data

Additional datasets such as BIBLE, LEVIATHAN can be found here:

http://www.philippe-fournier-viger.com/spmf/index.php?link=datasets.php




Also, here is some Java code for reading the datasets. This is some code that I wrote to test some sequential pattern mining algorithms.

Java code for reading the Kosarak dataset:

public void loadFileKosarakFormat(String filepath, int nblinetoread)
	throws IOException {
String thisLine;
BufferedReader myInput = null;
try {
	FileInputStream fin = new FileInputStream(new File(filepath));
	myInput = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(fin));
	int i = 0;
	while ((thisLine = myInput.readLine()) != null) {
		// ajoute une séquence
		String[] split = thisLine.split(" "winking smiley;
		i++;
		if (nblinetoread == i) {
			break;
		}
		Sequence sequence = new Sequence();
		for (String value : split) {
			List<Integer> itemset = new ArrayList<Integer>();
			Integer item = Integer.parseInt(value);
			itemset.add(item);
			sequence.addItemset(itemset.toArray());
		}
		sequences.add(sequence);
		
	}
} catch (Exception e) {
	e.printStackTrace();
} finally {
	if (myInput != null) {
		myInput.close();
	}
}
}

Java code for reading the BMSWebView1 format:

public void loadFileWebViewFOrmat(String filepath, int nbLine) {
		String thisLine;
		BufferedReader myInput = null;
		try {
			FileInputStream fin = new FileInputStream(new File(filepath));
			myInput = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(fin));
			int realID = 0;
			int lastId = 0;
			Sequence sequence = null;
			while ((thisLine = myInput.readLine()) != null) {
				// ajoute une séquence
				String[] split = thisLine.split(" "winking smiley;
				int id = Integer.parseInt(split[0]);
				int val = Integer.parseInt(split[1]);
				
				if(lastId != id){
					if(lastId!=0 ){ //&& sequence.size() >=2
						sequences.add(sequence);
						realID++;
					}
					sequence = new Sequence();
					lastId = id;
				}
				List<Integer> itemset = new ArrayList<Integer>();
				itemset.add(val);

				sequence.addItemset(itemset.toArray());
			}
		} catch (Exception e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		} 
	}

Java code for reading the Snake dataset (while eliminating some short sequences:
public void loadSnakeDataset(String filepath, int nbLine) {
		String thisLine;
		BufferedReader myInput = null;
		try {
			FileInputStream fin = new FileInputStream(new File(filepath));
			myInput = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(fin));
			while ((thisLine = myInput.readLine()) != null) {
				if(thisLine.length() >= 50){
					Sequence sequence = new Sequence();
					for(int i=0; i< thisLine.length(); i++){
						List<Integer> itemset = new ArrayList<Integer>();
						int character = thisLine.toCharArray()[i ] - 65;
						System.out.println(thisLine.toCharArray()[i ] + " " + character);
						itemset.add(character);

						sequence.addItemset(itemset.toArray());
					}
					sequences.add(sequence);
				}
			}
		} catch (Exception e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		} 
	}

Java source code for reading the Sign dataset:

public void loadFileSignLanguage(String fileToPath, int i) {
		String thisLine;
		BufferedReader myInput = null;
		try {
			FileInputStream fin = new FileInputStream(new File(fileToPath));
			myInput = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(fin));
			String oldUtterance = "-1";
			Sequence sequence = null;
			while ((thisLine = myInput.readLine()) != null) {
				if(thisLine.length() >= 1 && thisLine.charAt(0) != '#'){
					String []tokens = thisLine.split(" "winking smiley;
					String currentUtterance = tokens[0];
					if(!currentUtterance.equals(oldUtterance)){
						if(sequence != null){
							sequences.add(sequence);
						}
						sequence = new Sequence();
						oldUtterance = currentUtterance;
					}
					for(int j=1; j< tokens.length; j++){
						int character = Integer.parseInt(tokens[j]);
						if(character == -11 || character == -12){
							continue;
						}
						if(character >= maxItem){
							maxItem = character;
						}
						if(character < minItem){
							minItem = character;
						}
						sequence.addItemset(new Object[]{character});
					}
				}
			}
			sequences.add(sequence);
			System.out.println(sequence.toString());
		} catch (Exception e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		} 
	}

Java code for reading the MSNBC dataset (I did not test this one since a long time so it would be better to verify that it works correctly):

public void loadFileMSNBCFormat(String filepath, int nblinetoread)
	throws IOException {
	String thisLine;
	BufferedReader myInput = null;
		try {
			FileInputStream fin = new FileInputStream(new File(filepath));
			myInput = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(fin));
			int i = 0;
			while ((thisLine = myInput.readLine()) != null) {
				String[] split = thisLine.split(" "winking smiley;
				i++;
				if (nblinetoread == i) {
					break;
				}
				Sequence sequence = new Sequence(sequences.size());
				for (String value : split) {
					Itemset itemset = new Itemset();
					itemset.addItem(Integer.parseInt(value));
					sequence.addItemset(itemset);
				}
					sequences.add(sequence);
				
			}
		} catch (Exception e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		} finally {
				if (myInput != null) {
					myInput.close();
				}
			}
		}


Java code for reading binary sequence datasets generated by the IBM QUEST Data Geneator :

public void loadFileBinaryFormat(String path) throws IOException {
        String thisLine;
        // BufferedReader myInput = null;
        DataInputStream myInput = null;
        try {
            FileInputStream fin = new FileInputStream(new File(path));
            myInput = new DataInputStream(fin);
            Sequence sequence = new Sequence(sequences.size());
            Itemset itemset = new Itemset();
            while (myInput.available() != 0) {
                int value = INT_little_endian_TO_big_endian(myInput.readInt());
               
                if (value == -1) { // indicate the end of an itemset
                    sequence.addItemset(itemset);
                    itemset = new Itemset();
                } else if (value == -2) { // indicate the end of a sequence
                    sequences.add(sequence);
                    sequence = new Sequence(sequences.size());
                } else {
                    // extract the value for an item
                    Item item = new Item(value);
                    itemset.addItem(item);
                }
            }
        } catch (Exception e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }
    }

	// This function was written by Anghel Leonard:

Wow. This is a great list. Thanks. That is gonna be very useful for my project on sequential pattern mining. I was looking for sequential pattern mining datasets for a while and they are very hard to find.

I think that researchers should share their datasets more often. This is a problem in data mining in general. Also researchers should share the source code of their algorithms because everytime that I need an algorithm I have to implement it by myself again! What a waste of time! I have tried to contact some researchers by e-mail to ask their datasets and algorithms implementations but often they do not answer. Anyway, I just want to say thank you for this list ;-)

Hello Tisonet,

The Gazelle dataset is actually the BMS datasets used in KDD cup 2000. There are three datasets : BMSWebview1, BMSWebview2 and BMSPOS. They are not available anymore on the KDDCup website. But you can download BMSWebview1 from this page. I do not have BMSWebview2 and BMSPOS. But I think that the most interesting dataset is BMSWebView1.

For PI, I did not find a way to get it.

For Snake, I have the dataset. I did not put it on this webpage because it is not a public dataset. But you can send me an e-mail to philippe.fv _AT_ gmail.com .

Best,
Philippe

Hello Juned,

It depends which algorithm you want to use. These datasets are sequence databases. They are suitable for algorithm like PrefixSpan, BIDE, SPAM....

To use the Java code for reading these datasets, you need to do as follows.

For example, if you want to use the Snake dataset with PrefixSpan, then you should copy the method loadSnakeDataset in the class SequenceDatabase of the package ca.pfv.spmf.sequentialpaterns.prefixspan. After that, you would need to modify the test file MainTestPrefixSpan to use loadSnakeDataset() instead of loadFile for loading the file.

Actually, you just need to paste the methods in the class SequenceDatabase of the algorithm that you want to use.

Normally, it should work. I did not test will all the algorithms. You may need to change one or two variables names perhaps...


If you want some datasets for algorithm like Apriori, FPGrowth, then you would need transaction databases instead of sequence database. You can find some at fimi.ua.ac.be/data/ .

Hello Dilek,

You are welcome! I did not find how to generate single item in each itemset with the IBM dataset generator. I think that maybe it is not possible with the IBM dataset generator.

A solution would be to modify the IBM generator.

Otherwise, an alternative is to use a simple sequence database generator in Java that I wrote. The website: http://www.philippe-fournier-viger.com/seqDBGen/

It is more simple than the IBM generator. But it can generate sequence with itemsets containing single items.

Philippe

Options: ReplyQuote
Re: Sequential pattern mining datasets
Date: May 28, 2012 04:11AM

Hello Dvijesh,

I've searched a little bit and they say that the meaning is :

D: number of sequences in the dataset
C: average number of itemsets per sequence
T: average number of items per itemset
S: average number of itemsets in potentially frequent sequences.
I: average size of itemsets in potentially frequent sequences
N: number of different items in the dataset

It is not very clear. But I think that S and I are about the frequent sequential patterns. It should mean the average number of itemsets in frequent sequential patterns and the average number of items in frequent sequential patterns.

Best,

Philippe

Hi Dvijesh,

These options are parameters of the IBM Generator to generate synthetic datasets. They are NOT parameters of the sequential pattern mining algorithm like PrefixSpan. To see how to use the parameters of the IBM Generator you can use the parameter -help. It prints the description of the parameters:

-ncust number_of_customers_in_000s (default: 100)
  -slen avg_trans_per_customer (default: 10)
  -tlen avg_items_per_transaction (default: 2.5)
  -nitems number_of_different_items_in_000s (default: 10)
  -rept repetition-level (default: 0)

  -seq.npats number_of_seq_patterns (default: 5000)
  -seq.patlen avg_length_of_maximal_pattern (default: 4)
  -seq.corr correlation_between_patterns (default: 0.25)
  -seq.conf avg_confidence_in_a_rule (default: 0.75)

  -lit.npats number_of_patterns (default: 25000)
  -lit.patlen avg_length_of_maximal_pattern (default: 1.25)
  -lit.corr correlation_between_patterns (default: 0.25)
  -lit.conf avg_confidence_in_a_rule (default: 0.75)

  -fname <filename> (write to filename.data and filename.pat)
  -ascii (Write data in ASCII format; default: False)
  -version (to print out version info)


In particular, the parameters S and I should be specified by the two following parameters (in my opinion).

-seq.npats number_of_seq_patterns (default: 5000)
-seq.patlen avg_length_of_maximal_pattern (default: 4)

Hope that you understand what I mean.

Best,

Philippe

Hi Weelian,

No it is not necessary to use Unix.

First download this file:

It contains an .exe file to run it on Windows.

There some example of how to run it in the zip file. It is not very complicated.

BMS-WebView-1(Gazelle)
Posted by: Jing

Hi Philippe,

We are interested in the "BMS-WebView-1" dataset, click-stream data originally from the webstore named Gazelle.

We applied our new data mining method to it and have found some interesting patterns beyond traditional sequential. In order to analyse and evaluate the mining results, we need to know the meaning of the numbers in the original dataset, e.g. 1st line:

10307 -1 10311 -1 12487 -1 -2

What specific web pages or URLs do the numbers 10307, 10311 or 12487 correspond to?

Is there a place to find out their meanings through a mapping/table somewhere?

Look fwd to your reply!

Jing

Hi Jing,

I don't know the meaning. I just know that they represents webpages from an e-commerce named Gazelle.com (that doesn't exist anymore). To get more information, you should check KDD CUP 2000 web page:

http://www.sigkdd.org/kddcup/index.php?section=2000&method=info

I just found that they offer some of the original files here (actually not all of them are on the webpage anymore):

http://www.sigkdd.org/kddcup/site/2000/files/KDDCup2000.zip

Maybe there are some tables inside. You could check this out.

Hope this helps and that your method provides good results!

Hi Majid,

It works with Win7 64 bits on my computer.

Maybe it did not work on your computer because you may not have run the .exe in the command prompt. Also, if you don't give parameters, the program will crash.

You can check the .bat file that i have included in the zip file. A bat file is a txt file. It include an example of how to run the program.

Also there is the readme file that give more details.

But the key is to use the command prompt to run the software.

hi,
i want to ask u please tell me how could i run the spmf source code software in netbeans fpr frequent pattern mining. as i run the main test file of algorithm it always give an en unexpected error occured. should i have to install any other file to run it or some other method is required to run. also i want to ask do u have any code of classification based on association.if yes then please send me. i m in need of it.

This error means that NetBeans was not able to compile all the classes in the project. The problem is probably that you may have not installed the code properly in your NetBeans project. I would suggest to delete the project, create a new one, and try again to install the source code again.

The instructions for installing the code in Eclipse or Netbeans can be found here:

hi,
i found the reason why it gives such an error, the problem was the directory for the source package. i was checking the algorithms in the gui i havent found id3 algo? but it is in code but when i tried to run it through test file it give an exception

There is just 3 or 4 algorithms that are not in the GUI yet and ID3 is one of them.

When I run the test file on my computer, it works. Did you use the provided input file or another file?

Hi,

Sorry for the delay to answer you. I have been on vacation in Mexico and I did not had Internet for a week.

To count the support of single items, you need to read each sequence one by one in your file.

Then, to count the support of single items, I usually use a HashMap<Integer,Integer> where the key is an item and the value the support of the item. Each time that an item is read from a sequence, I increase the count for the item in the map. I also use a HashSet<Integer> to remember which items i have already counted so that I do not increase the support more than once if an item appear multiple times in the same sequence. The code would look like that:

HashMap<Integer, Integer> count = new HashMap<Integer, Integer>();

for each sequence...
   HashSet<Integer> alreadyCounted = new HashSet<Integer>();

   for each itemset
         for each item
              if the item is not in alreadyCounted then
                 increase the count of the item in the hashmap 
                 add the item to alreadyCounted.


An alternative way that is also efficient is to use an array instead of a hash map. If you know the number of items that you have in your dataset, it is a good idea to do that. For example, if you have only 100 items, then you can create an array int[100] where each position is used to store the frequency of the items 1,2 .... 100. I don't use this in my implementation because I don't know in advance how many items appear in each dataset and what is their ids.

thank you very much for replied me and hope you did enjoy ur holiday smiling smiley.i have been waiting for this long time ,everyday i check this forum almost 20 times grinning smiley . i already used the hash map for counting the items and i could count each sequence as well as calculate frequent items but yet the problem of counting repeated data in the same row still there and now u mentioned the hash set and i will give it a try . now i reached to maximal phase which seem to me confusing . and also i see no different between aprioir all and normal aproioir here and i don't why ? i could use this code for both!!

here my code for counting, this for first Candidate items set C1 and correct me if em wrong . thanks u again very much indeed Sir

String mylLine;
BufferedReader Input = loadFile_Data();
if (nput.readLine().equals("#data"winking smiley) {

// System.out.println("true"winking smiley;// test
while ((myLine = myInput.readLine()) != null) {
// System.out.println("Next Line"winking smiley; test
// read whole lines and divided into tokens
StringTokenizer st = new StringTokenizer(thisLine);
// System.out.println("tokens all "+st.countTokens());// test
// loop and get each token
while (st.hasMoreTokens()) {
// System.out.println("tokens "+st.nextToken());//test
// break each token into units
String val = st.nextToken();
String[] split = val.split("-"winking smiley;
for (String value : split) {

// System.out.println(value);// test print all

// store each token into hashMap and count it's occurance
if (items_List.get(value) == null)

Hi,

Your code looks good. For more efficiency, you could store the result of :

Integer value = items_List.get(value);

in a variable.

Then like I said, you can add the HashSet<Integer> and it would be perfect. Hashset is very simple. You use the method .add() to add an item and contains() to check if the item is already in the hash set.

Best,

Philippe

public void assocation_Rule_Generation(){

			for(int x=0;x<maximal.size();x++){
				String second = maximal.get(x);
				
				if(!first.equals(second)){
					double forSecond = maximal_list.get(second);
				
					double fconfidenst =(forSecond/forFisrt)*100;

Hi Phillipe,

I must commend you for the wonderful work you are doing here in this forum.

I am currently working on a project and at this stage I will like to mine maximal sequential patterns from my dataset. Each item has three dimensions(x,y,y). I wish to use your prefixspan implementation, but I am having difficulty in doing so because of the nature of the data. I will appreciate any suggestion from you.

Hi,

You could have a look at how to mine maximal sequential patterns. I do not have implementations of these algorithms. But there exist some. Maybe it could give you some ideas.

You say that items have three dimensions. What kind of dimensions? Integers ? nominal values? If you just have a small set of values for each dimensions, you could consider transforming each possible value as an item. For example, i(x,y,z) could become three items: ix, iy, iz.

But in any case, I think that you will have to write a custom algorithm for that (that could be based on PrefixSpan). Using PrefixSpan could be a good idea because it is easy to extend.

Hi Philippe,

Thanks for the response.

Each dimension (integers) in my dataset represents a distinct attribute of the data, but together they make up an item. This means instead of an itemset, I rather have an item, each item being (x,y,z). I can therefore not transform each dimension as an item. I am looking at mining sequential patterns from this combination of items.

In using your implementation for prefixspan I will like to get a clear picture of how to get my itemsets.

I will appreciate some ideas.

Fadeela

Then, you could read the developer's guide on the same page.

It is very simple to add a new algorithm to SPMF.

I am working with Sequential Pattern Mining algorithms such as GSP, SPADE, SPAM, PrefixSpan, CloSpan and datasets such as Kosarak, BMS, Leviathan, Snake, SIGN, and FIFA with the help of SPMF and i got values for several parameters such as MAX. PATTERNS LENGTH, MIN_SUP, TOTAL TIME, FREQUENT SEQUENCES COUNT, MAX. MEMORY (mb). Now I want to draw the graphs/charts, then how to draw the graphs to compare the results above said algorithms.

To do that, I use Microsoft Excel. You need to enter the results (execution time, etc.) into Excel and then you can draw the charts using the tools from Excel.

I cannot help you how to use Excel, but I can send you a sample Excel file that I use with some charts that have been already made to give you an idea of how to do it. You send me an e-mail at philippe.fv AT gmail.com and i'll send it to you.

Re: Sequential pattern mining datasets

Hi, the code above assume that a class Sequence and a class Itemset are also defined. Actually, this code was taken from an early version of the SPMF open source data mining library where a Sequence was implemented as a List of Itemsets and an Itemset is implemented as a List of Integer. The code of the classes Sequence and Itemset is not provided, but the goal here is just to give the main idea for reading the dataset. You could create your own classes Sequence and Itemset.

But to make it simple, if you just want to print what is read from the file you could put this code in a main function:

String filepath = "kosarak.txt";  // replace this with the input file path
String thisLine;
BufferedReader myInput = null;
try {
        int seqID = 0;
	FileInputStream fin = new FileInputStream(new File(filepath));
	myInput = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(fin));
	while ((thisLine = myInput.readLine()) != null) {
                System.out.println("Sequence #" + seqID);
		// for each sequence
		String[] split = thisLine.split(" " ) ;
		for (String value : split) {
			Integer item = Integer.parseInt(value) ;
			System.out.print(item + " " );
		}
                System.out.println();
                seqID++;
		
	}
} catch (Exception e) {
	e.printStackTrace() ;
} finally {
	if (myInput != null) {
		myInput.close() ;
	}
}

where filepath is a String variable containing the input file path (you may need to edit it).

Best,

Re: Sequential pattern mining datasets

Zaki proposed an Eclat based algorithm for mining sequential patterns in sequence database. It is named SPADE.

You may have a look at that paper. It is an interesting paper that is not very hard to read and there is an implementation in SPMF, as well as an implementation of CM-SPADE, an extension of SPADE, that is faster.

The idea of using a vertical database as in Eclat with a depth-first search is very powerful. In my opinion, it could be adapted to several pattern mining problems. For example, the current best algorithm for high utility itemset mining (HUI-Miner and the FHM extension) are inspired by Eclat.

So, it can be a good topic to design some algorithms inspired by features of Eclat for some current or new data mining problems. For sequential dataset, there is many possibilities for designing new Eclat-based algorithm. For example, why not trying to design an Eclat based algorithm for mining seq. patterns with time constraints ? (i did not check if someone has done it, this is just an example)

I will advise if anything new.

Hi Omer,

Yes, and beside time constraints, you could perform any combination of two problems to create a new problem. For example:

sequential pattern mining + incremental pattern mining = incremental seq. pattern mining

sequential pattern mining + uncertain data mining = uncertain seq. pattern mining

etc.

It is easy to create a new topic by combining topic. Actually, the topic above already exists, but they are examples, and perhaps that no eclat-based algorithm have been used in these topics.

For time constraints, there exists some algorithms based on PrefixSpan (one of them is named Hirate & Yamana and is offered in SPMF) and some other algorithms perhaps. In that case, if you design a new algorithms, you may want to compare the performance with the existing algorithms.

So in any such topics, you may find some way to apply an Eclat based algorithm.

Best,

Philippe

Thank you Philippe, It seems there are many things to look at yet each of which looks interesting. I was thinking of this incremental mining but I used different term I called Updatable eclat which can update the frequents items based on the a new dataset given with no need to start from scratch. Hopefully, at the end I will come out with something useful and interesting too.

It is better to use some real datasets too.

But I don't have any real dataset with timestamps.

For the real dataset, you may use the sequence datasets available on the SPMF website such as BMS, etc. But they don't have timestamps. So you could generate the timestamps for these datasets randomly maybe. Thus, you would have real data with synthetic timestamps. There is a tool that i have added recently toSPMF to add consecutive timestamps to a dataset (example #86). This may be helpful perhaps.

Otherwise, you could generate your own dataset. You could use for example the log from a web server. For example, you can the original web logs of the FIFA datasets here: http://ita.ee.lbl.gov/html/contrib/WorldCup.html You would need to convert them to a sequence database and you could use the real timestamps of the HTTP requests.

Besides, you can use synthetic sequences generated by your generator to evaluate your algorithm.

Hope this helps.

Philippe

If you need data with timestamps, you could use server logs and convert them to sequences. This would result in sequences with timestamps.

Hello,

My first question is what does "lit" stand for (i.e. you have "seq", "lit", "tax"winking smiley?

My second question is:

I am trying to generate transactional datasets using lit but when I run:
seq_data_generator lit -ntrans 0.01 -ascii -fname test1

all of the transactions are on a SINGLE LINE, why does it do this?
I tried "seq" and the transactions are on separate lines but I don't want sequential transactions as I am testing on Apriori?

Can someone help me?

Thanks

P.S.

Also if i am trying to generate a transactional data set for association mining (focusing on frequent itemsets mining not on rule generation) for the dataset described as: D2016K.T10.I2

how would it translate to the parameters of seq_data_generator?

seq_data_generator lit ...


Do I keep some of the attributes as default (e.g. -npats, -nitems) as they are not specified?

The above dataset description(i.e. D2016K.T10.I2) is taken from paper:

Parallel Mining of Association Rules:
Design, Implementation and Experience by Rakesh Agrawal.

Thank you.

Hi,
My project is mininmg probabilistically frequent sequencial patterns in large uncertain databases. I collected a dataset on temperature sensor reading, but looking for more datassets which are uncertain. Could you Please help me finding them. If u have any idea in finding sequential patterns for such datasets kindly let me know. Post the code also, if it is available with anyone of you.

Thank you

I am using IBM Quest data generator. problem is that if I use command like this bin/seq_data_generator seq -ncust 0.1 -ascii -fname sample, then in sample.pat file it specifies that number of customers are 100, but in sample.data file number of record are less then 100 . this is case for all values when I specify -ncust greater than 10.

I wrote some code for that about six years ago to convert Sign to the SPMF format.... I think I don't know where that code is anymore. But it should be quite simple to write the program again. You just need to read the file Sign in memory, assign numbers to each element from the Sign format, and then write another file as output. If you know how to do programming and read/write files, you could easily write a program for that.

Dear Phillipe,

I use data generator from http://www.philippe-fournier-viger.com/spmf/datasets/IBM_Quest_data_generator.zip with the following options:
lit -ascii (e.g. seq_data_generator lit -ntrans 1 -tlen 10 -nitems 0.1 -ascii).

I'm wait for one-per-line transactions in the output file but get all the transaction in single line.

Could you please prompt how can I get ascii formatted transaction database with one-per-line transaction in it?

Regards, Mikhail

Hello Mikhail,

I have tried but cannot find the reason. Actually, I did not use this program for a few years so I do not really remember how to use it, and it was not written by me. If you cannot find how to use it, you can use the dataset generator offered in the SPMF library. It is easier to use.

Best regards,

Philippe

Dear Sir,

I had downloaded the IBM Quest data generator from this link:
http://www.philippe-fournier-viger.com/spmf/datasets/IBM_Quest_data_generator.zip

In this folder, there was a README.txt file which contains information about how to generate datasets according to our requirements. There was also an example dataset generated which was:

9 1 2479 2 2154 5477 4 440 2276 6036 9838 4 6639 7926 9054 9748 1 1247 1 1992 1 2535 3 5095 7744 9337 6 2343 4737 7188 8518 9241 9486
9 3 765 1542 7203 3 5854 7309 8827 1 5993 4 991 4956 6376 7993 3 606 1798 8964 3 606 1091 2787 2 4023 5242 3 2451 6392 8259 5 703 3355 5892 7169 9239

5 2 765 6075 1 5735 1 3541 1 2715 1 2104

I just wanted to confirm the number of transactions in this dataset. Is it 56?
Please correct me if I am wrong.

Thanking you in anticipation.

Yours sincerely,
Hritwik.

Hello,

If you clicked on "GENERATE_DATASET.bat" to generate the dataset, it should generate a sequence database, where each line is a sequence.

But I did not use that IBM generator for a long time, so I do not remember how it works. There is some database generators that are perhaps easier to use in my SPMF library.

Best regards,
