Subject [jira] [Commented] (GIRAPH-1000) Multi Output support
Date Wed, 25 Mar 2015 10:48:53 GMT


Alessio Arleo commented on GIRAPH-1000:

Thank you very much Lukas. 

Anyway, as you said, this is something not ideal and closely related to the single job implementation.

What I meant was a complete integration just like in Hadoop: the user develops a job and specifies
to the Runner to use one or more output formats. Than the computation just  as its

I would really enjoy to add this feature myself, I would anyway appreciate some help. Unfortunately
I do not have access to much documentation on Giraph technical details, so pointing me to
such documentation would speed up the process considerably.

> Hadoop natively supports multiple outputs. The objective is to extend Giraph to support
multiple output formats during a single giraph run.
> According to the official Hadoop apidocs*, to take advantage of multiple outputs the
 the pattern is the following:
> - Modify the job submission
> - Modify the reducer class to write on the declared different outputs
> Since Giraph jobs are executed as mappers, probably this approach (or at least its second
part) is not feasible, so further investigation is necessary.
