Person activity subgraph features in LDBC DATAGEN

When talking about DATAGEN and other graph generators with social network characteristics, our attention is typically borrowed by the friendship subgraph and/or its structure. However, a social graph is more than a bunch of people being connected by friendship relations, but has a lot more of other things is worth to look at. With a quick view to commercial social networks like Facebook, Twitter or Google+, one can easily identify a lot of other elements such as text images or even video assets. More importantly, all these elements form other subgraphs within the social network!

SNB Driver - Part 2: Tracking Dependencies Between Queries

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.

Further Developments in SNB BI Workload

We are presently working on the SNB BI workload. Andrey Gubichev of TU Munchen and myself are going through the queries and are playing with two SQL based implementations, one on Virtuoso and the other on Hyper.

As discussed before, the BI workload has the same choke points as TPC-H as a base but pushes further in terms of graphiness and query complexity.

Making It Interactive

Synopsis: Now is the time to finalize the interactive part of the Social Network Benchmark (SNB). The benchmark must be both credible in a real social network setting and pose new challenges. There are many hard queries but not enough representation for what online systems in fact do. So, the workload mix must strike a balance between the practice and presenting new challenges.

SNB Data Generator - Getting Started

In previous posts (this and this) we briefly introduced the design goals and philosophy behind DATAGEN, the data generator used in LDBC-SNB. In this post, I will explain how to use DATAGEN to generate the necessary datatsets to run LDBC-SNB. Of course, as DATAGEN is continuously under development,  the instructions given in this tutorial might change in the future.

Introducing SNB Interactive, the LDBC Social Network Benchmark Online Workload

The LDBC Social Network Benchmark (SNB) is composed of three distinct workloads, interactive, business intelligence and graph analytics. This post introduces the interactive workload.

The benchmark measures the speed of queries of medium complexity against a social network being constantly updated. The queries are scoped to a user's social environment and potentially access data associated with the friends or a user and their friends.

Social Network Benchmark goals

Social Network interaction is amongst the most natural and widely spread activities in the internet society, and it has turned out to be a very useful way for people to socialise at different levels (friendship, professional, hobby, etc.). As such, Social Networks are well understood from the point of view of the data involved and the interaction required by their actors.
