During the 6th TUC Meeting in Barcelona we were glad to welcome Arnau Prat from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Barcelonatech) and Sparsity Technologies with the presentation "LDBC Social Network Benchmark Interactive Workload”.
In a previous 3-part blog series we touched upon the difficulties of executing the LDBC SNB Interactive (SNB) workload, while achieving good performance and scalability. What we didn't discuss is why these difficulties were unique to SNB, and what aspects of the way we perform workload execution are scientific contributions - novel solutions to previously unsolved problems. This post will highlight the differences between SNB and more traditional database benchmark workloads. Additionally, it will motivate why we chose to develop a new wo
The SNB Driver part 1 post introduced, broadly, the challenges faced when developing a workload driver for the LDBC SNB benchmark. In this blog we'll drill down deeper into the details of what it means to execute "dependent queries" during benchmark execution, and how this is handled in the driver. First of all, as many driver-specific terms will be used, below is a listing of their definitions. There is no need to read them in detail, it is just there to serve as a point of reference.
In this multi-part blog we consider the challenge of running the LDBC Social Network Interactive Benchmark (LDBC SNB) workload in parallel, i.e.
