Understanding SPARQL’s Bottom-up Semantics

Preface: In the 1.5.2 release we’ve implemented a couple of fixes regarding issues related to SPARQL’s bottom-up evaluation approach and associated variable scoping problems. If you encounter regressions with some of your queries after upgrading to 1.5.2, this blog post may help you identify ill-designed queries that are not in line with the official SPARQL 1.1 semantics. Please consult our Wiki for a more comprehensive discussion of SPARQL's bottom-up semantics.... read more

bigdata-bundled.jar add for 1.5.2

Hello,

Based on user feedback, we've added a bigdata-bundled.jar for the 1.5.2 release. The default release had changed the naming format to bigdata-1.5.2-bundled.jar. Both files are available and they are identical.

Thanks, --Brad

SPARQL UPDATE performance gain. An easy win with the right data structure.

We had reports of a performance slowdown for SPARQL UPDATE INSERT/DELETE WHERE queries:

DELETE {...}
INSERT {...}
WHERE {...}

For example, you can observe this using the following SPARQL UPDATE request against a data set with 100k or more instances of rdf:label.

DELETE { ?s rdf:label ?o } INSERT {?s rdf:comment ?o } WHERE { ?s rdf:label ?o }

Looking into the timing, we found that the time to insert or remove each statement was growing in proportion to the number of statements already added or removed in the connection. The actual timings are below.  In the first log output, it took 3 seconds to process 10,000 statements.  The performance is fairly flat for the next 20,000 statements. However, the latency of the operation then starts to grow very rapidly.  By the last log output it was taking 97 seconds to process 10,000 statements!

     [java] Added 10000 stmts for removal in **3 seconds** (now **10000 stmts** in total)
     [java] Added 10000 stmts for removal in 3 seconds (now 20000 stmts in total)

     [java] Added 10000 stmts for removal in 9 seconds (now 50000 stmts in total)
     [java] Added 10000 stmts for removal in 12 seconds (now 60000 stmts in total)
     [java] Added 10000 stmts for removal in 20 seconds (now 70000 stmts in total)

In SPARQL, Order Matters

One common mistake made when writing SPARQL queries is the implicit assumption that, within SPARQL join groups, the order in which components of the group are specified does not matter. The point here is that, by definition, SPARQL follows a sequential semantics when evaluating join groups and, although in many cases the order of evaluating patterns does not change the outcome of the query , there are some situations where the order is crucial to get the expected query result.... read more

Blazegraph 1.5.2 to Support Hybrid Search using External Solr Indices

While graph databases are a perfect fit for storing and querying structured data, they are not primarily designed to deal efficiently with unstructured data and keyword queries. Therefore, such unstructured data is often kept in dedicated systems that are laid out to tackle the specific challenges for evaluating keyword queries in an efficient way — including advanced techniques such as stemming, TF-IDF indexing, support for complex keyword search requests, scoring, etc.... read more

CPU, Disk, Main Memory for Graphs

Bryan and I were chatting back on the train from NYC on CPU memory bandwidth. Here's a quick write-up of the discussion.

15 years ago database researchers recognized that CPU memory bandwidth was the limiting factor for relational database performance. This observation was made in the context of relatively wide tables in RDBMS platforms that were heavily oriented to key range scan on a primary key. The resulting architectures are similar to the structure of array (SOA) pattern used by the high performance computing community and within our Mapgraph platform.... read more

Blazegraph 1.5.1 Feature Preview

Starting with 1.5.1, BlazeGraph supports task-oriented concurrent writers. This support is based on the pre-existing support for task-based concurrency control in BlazeGraph. Those mechanisms were previously used only in the scale-out architecture. They are now incorporated into the REST API and can even be used by aware embedded applications.

This is a beta feature -- make backups!

There are two primary benefits from group commit. ... read more

Bigdata Release 1.4.0 (openrdf 2.7 + RDR fixes)

This is a major release of bigdata(R).

Bigdata is a horizontally-scaled, open-source architecture for indexed data with an emphasis on RDF capable of loading 1B triples in under one hour on a 15 node cluster. Bigdata operates in both a single machine mode (Journal), highly available replication cluster mode (HAJournalServer), and a horizontally sharded cluster mode (BigdataFederation). The Journal provides fast scalable ACID indexed storage for very large data sets, up to 50 billion triples / quads. The HAJournalServer adds replication, online backup, horizontal scaling of query, and high availability. The federation provides fast scalable shard-wise parallel indexed storage using dynamic sharding and shard-wise ACID updates and incremental cluster size growth. Both platforms support fully concurrent readers with snapshot isolation.... read more
