A Block-centric graph processing framework for LArge Dynamic Graphs
Keywords: Distributed computing - Dynamic graph processing
Functional Description: BLADYG is a block-centric framework that addresses the issue of dynamism in large-scale graphs. BLADYG starts its computation by collecting the graph data from various data sources. After collecting the graph data, BLADYG partitions the input graph into multiple partitions. Each BLADYG worker loads its block/partition and performs both local and remote computations, after which the status of the blocks is updated. The BLADYG coordinator orchestrates the execution of the considered graph operation in order to deal with graph updates.
