Re: Java Heap Space - Vertex.edges

Joe Obernberger

Thank you Marc - I tried something like this:
List<Edge> edgeList = traversal.V().has("myId", myId).inE().toList();

myId is an indexed field.  This also runs out of memory if the outE() size is very large.  At least that's what appears to be happening.  The size of the inE is small (less than 10 nodes).  The outE size can be very large.  It seems that we can't have graphs with a large number of edges on a single node.  The graph can also result in very large partition sizes in Cassandra (in my case about 650MBytes):  Seeing this; would I need to redesign the graph?  What I'm trying now is limiting the number of edges on a node, but that seems opposed to why I'm using a graph in the first place.

Hi Joe,

Can you take a look at this blog from Boxuan Li:

In general, it is better to use the TinkerPop API starting with g.V(). This makes sure you do not skip query optimizations. In addition, it makes your code more portable with respect to other TinkerPop-compatible graph systems.

I am not sure though if this will really help for your use case, but give it a try!

Best wishes,     Marc
