Literature Survey of Graph Databases by Bryan Thompson.

I can understand Danny Bickson, Literature survey of graph databases, being excited about the coverage of GraphChi in this survey.

However, there are other names you will recognize as well (TOC order):

  • RDF3X
  • Diplodocus
  • GraphChi
  • YARS2
  • 4store
  • Virtuoso
  • Bigdata
  • Graph partitioning
  • Accumulo
  • Urika
  • Scalable RDF query processing on clusters and supercomputers (a system with no name at Rensselaer Polytechnic)

As you can tell from the system names, the survey focuses on processing of RDF.

In reviewing one system, Bryan remarks:

Only small data sets were considered (100s of millions of edges). (emphasis added)

I think that captures the focus of the paper better than any comment I can make.

A must read for graph heads!
