Re: JanusGraph database cache on distributed setup

Hi Wasantha,

It's great to hear that you have solved the previous problem.

Regarding contributing to the community, I would suggest you create a GitHub issue first, describing the problem and your approach there. This is not required but recommended. Then, you could create a pull request linking to that issue (note that you would also be asked to sign an individual CLA or corporate CLA once you create your first pull request in JanusGraph).

I am not 100% sure if I understand your question, but I guess you are asking what exactly is stored in that cache. Basically, that cache stores the raw data fetched from the storage backend. It does not have to be vertex - it could be vertex properties or edges. It might also contain deserialized data (See getCache() method in Note that in your case, since your cache is not local, it might be a better idea to store only the raw data but not the deserialized data to reduce the network overhead. To achieve that, you could override Entry::setCache method and let it do nothing. If you are interested in learning more about the "raw data", I wrote a blog Data layout in JanusGraph that you might be interested in.

Hope this helps.
