An alternative family of data mining algorithms scans the refinement lattice in a breadth-first manner for queries whose frequency exceeds some user-defined threshold. The best-known instance of these level-wise algorithms is the APRIORI method for finding frequent item-sets . WARMR  is an ILP variant of attribute-value based APRIORI.
Query packs in WARMR correspond to hash-trees of item-sets in APRIORI: both are used to store a subgraph of the total refinement lattice down to level . The paths from the root down to level in that subgraph correspond to frequent patterns. The paths from root to the leaves at depth correspond to candidates whose frequency has to be computed. Like hash-trees in APRIORI, query packs in WARMR exploit massive similarity between candidates to make their evaluation more efficient. Essentially the WARMR algorithm starts with an empty query pack and iterates between pack evaluation and pack extension (see Figure 8). The latter is achieved by adding all potentially frequent refinements3 of all leaves in the pack, i.e., adding another level of the total refinement lattice.
