From the post:
8 months ago I posted the results of my research about fast retrieval of social news feeds and in particular my graph index graphity. The index is able to serve more than 12 thousand personalized social news streams per second in social networks with several million active users. I was able to show that the system is independent of the node degree or network size. Therefor it scales to graphs of arbitrary size.
Today I am pleased to anounce that our joint work was accepted as a full research paper at IEEE SocialCom conference 2012. The conference will take place in early September 2012 in Amsterdam. As promised before I will now open the source code of Graphity to the community. Its documentation could / and might be improved in future also I am sure that one is even able to use a better data structure for our implementation of the priority queue.
Still the attention from the developer community for Graphity was quite high so maybe the source code is of help to anyone. The source code consists of the entire evaluation framework that we used for our evaluation against other baselines which will also help anyone to reproduce our evaluation.
There is some nice things one can learn in setting up multthreading for time measurements and also how to set up a good logging mechanism.
Just in case you are interested in all the changes ever made to the German entries in Wikipedia.
That’s one use case.
Deeply awesome work!
Please take a close look! This looks important!
