A* on linked data

This is the project behind the VLDB submission Evaluating navigational RDF queries over the Web.

This projects aims to show how search can be improved by using A* instead of DFS and BFS. A* takes an edge over blind search algorithms by using the query automaton, to induce a heuristic.

The induced heuristic is consistent, (and thus admissible, properties that ensure that A* runs smoothly.

Dependencies

This project requires python3, pip and a set of python packages. To install the python packages run

pip install -r requirements.txt

Optionally, fish-shell is required, but it’s only used to call a python script that does the work.

Basic usage

Previously defined queries can be run from `run.py` by running it with the `-q` parameter set. Optional parameters for the time-limit, algorithm to use and parallelism-degree exist.

./run.py  -q 15  [--pool-size 1] [--alg AStar] [--time 600]

Running experiments

There is a `fish-shell` script that runs the previous script with multiple configurations.

./exps.fish

Getting plots

While experiments run, dumps with data about the run are generated. Those dumps can be used to generate plots after the runs complete.

An utility for generating plots from dumps is provided, and can be ran onto per-run directories

./utils/load_dump.py RUN_DIRECTORIES  [--x KEYS_FOR_X_AXIS] [--y KEYS_FOR_X_AXIS]

A typical execution looks like this,

./utils/load_dump.py bench/machine-2016-12-24T23:59:59-03:00/  --x remote_expansions wallClock --y goals_found remote_expansions wallClock memory
