Hi Gavan,

Giraph can run on a single machine as well as multiple machines, just 
like Hadoop.  Our test suite can be run with or without a running Hadoop 
instance as an example.

If you want to take advantage of multiple cores though, you might want 
to try running Hadoop with multiple map slots on the single node and 
then using the appropriate number of workers.

Hope that helps,
