Re: Do We Need Specialized Graph Databases? Benchmarking Real-Time Social Networking Applications

This blew up a while ago on the Twitter last month https://twitter.com/adriancolyer/status/883226836561518594

The testing set up was less than ideal for Titan. Cassandra isn't really meant for a single node install.

The paper picked on Gremlin Server, but it didn't disclose anything about the server configuration. Some of the latency for the Gremlin Server-based runs could have been because they weren't using parameterized script bindings. Using the Gremlin Server is not a requirement for using Titan at all, and I'm aware of projects that don't even use it.

There's a team in my company that is trying to reproduce the results in that paper, then we'll be able to see what improvements can be made to the benchmark itself or within TinkerPop and JanusGraph.

Interested to know what other folks think of this testing setup and set of conclusions.
