Custom quantization borders and NaN modes
Custom quantization borders and the method for processing NaN values for the dataset features.
- Each line contains information regarding a single border and optionally the NaN mode settings for the corresponding feature.
- Different NaN mode settings can not be specified for a single feature. The value either has to be set only on one line or should be the same on different lines that contain information regarding a single feature.
- Supported NaN modes:
- “Forbidden” — NaN values are not supported, their presence raises an exception.
- “Min” — Each NaN float feature is processed as the minimum value from the dataset.
- “Max” — Each NaN float feature is processed as the maximum value from the dataset.
- The NaN mode for the feature is defined by the value of the --nan-mode (nan_mode) training parameter if not specified in this file.
- Format of a single line:
<zero-based feature ID><\t><border value><\t><nan mode (optional)>
- The following description contains two borders for features indexed 0 and 2 and NaN mode settings for each of these features:
0<\t>0.25<\t>Forbidden 0<\t>0.75<\t>Forbidden 2<\t>0.3 2<\t>0.85<\t>Max
