k-means convergence

Hi all,,
Need your suggestions on k-means clustering..

i am trying to cluster the data using k-means..
but somehow my algorithm terminates after 4-5 steps..i do not know whether this is normal behavior of k-means algorithm or something wrong in my code or understanding of algorithm by me?
data set is in the range 0-2.

looking for suggestions??

    Hi,

    well, this is nothing too unusual. If the data is "easy" to cluster, the number of clusters fits well (and usually is small), then convergence is indeed often reached quite fast. I can, however, not say more without seeing the data, sorry.

    Cheers,
    Ingo
