Scalability issue with titan (0.5.4) and upgrade version from 0.5.4 to 1.0.0

ankit tyagi <ankitty...@...>


Currently, I am using titan graph0.5.4 for making the social graph out of user activities like (user1-->follows-->user2, user1-->likes-->object2  etc.). 

Earlier when I started using it, a number of activities, users etc. were quite small and since then it is growing daily. So to give approximate numbers I have around 20 million user nodes and 50 million objects nodes and obviously billions of edges :). 

I have exposed APIs on this social graph using tinker pop library in java eg. get followers, following of user1 etc. I am using Cassandra(version2.0.14) as the underlying database. 

Throughput is around 50K rpm.

So, overall loads of deletion, insertion, update, reads are happening on daily basis.

Problems I am facing
If read increases, load gets quite high on my machines (machine config RAID-1 , 1 TB DISK ,32 core, 64GB RAM, 4 similar machines, replication fact 3, Levelled compaction)
Response time/SLA of APIs also degraded over a period of time.
My Queries
Can I use titan for serving this type of real time queries, or should I keep it only for analytics purpose to explore/recommend user data?
Do I need to change my Cassandra configurations or machines configuration to improve performance?
Any suggestions for scaling/serving this type of data?
For more explanation or any other thing, please do ping. I am quite stuck over this problem :/

For using JanusGraph, we need to migrate our current version to 1.0.0. Do we need data migration also because I am getting below exception while  loading graph with 1.0.0.

I am using below configuration to load the graph.
