"HDRF: Stream-Based Partitioning for Power-Law Graphs."
In: Proceedings of the 24th ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM), 2015.
Abstract: "Balanced graph partitioning is a fundamental problem that is receiving growing attention with the emergence of distributed graph-computing (DGC) frameworks. In these frameworks, the partitioning strategy plays an important role since it drives the communication cost and the workload balance among computing nodes, thereby affecting system performance.
However, existing solutions only partially exploit a key characteristic of natural graphs commonly found in the
real-world: their highly skewed power-law degree distributions.
In this paper, we propose High-Degree (are) Replicated First (HDRF), a novel streaming vertex-cut graph partitioning algorithm that effectively exploits skewed degree distributions by explicitly taking into account vertex degree in the placement decision. We analytically and experimentally evaluate HDRF on both synthetic and real-world graphs and show that it outperforms all existing algorithms in partitioning quality."
