PageRankRDF

Note: This repository is now mantained by QAnswer, it can be found here.

This repository contains a command line tool to compute PageRank scores over RDF graphs. Applying the PageRank algorithm to RDF graphs is not difficult, but doing it in a memory efficient and scalable way is not easy.

Usage

The usage is very simple. Compile the project:

mvn clean package

The command line tool is then available:

 java -jar target/pagerank-0.1.0.jar

It currently supports two computation methods. The first can be used to compute PageRank scores over RDF files in common serilizations like nt or Turtle. An example usage would be:

java -jar pagerank.jar -in input.ttl -out output.nt

NOTE: This method is NOT memory efficient. You will need a BIG machine to run this script (depending on the size of your data)

The second method takes as input a RDF file in hdt format (http://www.rdfhdt.org). Hdt is a compressed format to store RDF. An example usage would be:

java -jar pagerank.jar -in input.hdt -out output.nt

The scores can be stored either by default in nt format using the vRank vocabulary. Also a tsv file can be generated.

The full list of options is:

Usage: java -jar pagerank.jar -in file -out pagerank [options]
Options:
  --damping, -D
    specifying the damping factor for the PageRank computation
    Default: 0.85
  --format, -f
    specify the output format for the PageRank scores, either "tsv" or "nt"
    Default: nt
  --help
    displays the list of possible parameters
* --input, -in
    specify a file in some RDF format or in HDT
  --iteration, -I
    specifying the number are performed by PageRank
    Default: 40
* --output, -out
    specify the file where the pagerank scores are stored
  --start-value, -S
    specifying the start value for the PageRank computation
    Default: 0.1
