Subject Number of workers and input splits
Date Wed, 08 Aug 2012 19:29:27 GMT

I have some basic questions regarding assignment of input splits to Giraph

   1. Should each Giraph worker be assigned to only one split ? Can a
   worker sequentially process vertices associated with its each of its splits
   in a superstep ?
   2. Given the same graph, would increasing the number of workers cause
   the master to increase the number of splits such that each worker is
   assigned a smaller chunk of the graph ?
   3. If not what is the recommended way to make such an assignment ?
