> There has been some talk about Giraph's scaling limitations due to keeping the whole
graph and messages in RAM.
> We need to investigate methods to fall back to disk when running out of memory, while
gracefully degrading performance.
> This issue is for graph storage. Messages should probably be a separate issue, although
the interplay between the two is crucial.
> We should also discuss what are our primary goals here: completing a job (albeit slowly)
instead of failing when the graph is too big, while still encouraging memory optimizations
and high-memory clusters; or restructuring Giraph to be as efficient as possible in disk mode,
making it almost a standard way of operating.
