Subject Re: Running SimpleShortestPathsVertex with ToolRunner
Date Thu, 04 Apr 2013 16:35:17 GMT
All of the documentation for Giraph on both the Githiub wiki and the the 
Apache site is out of date as it related to the 0.2 version.   Currently 
I have tested the following benchmark examples from the core library:

Help for these examples is provided via the -h option as shown below:

hadoop jar giraph-jar-with-dependencies.jar 
org.apache.giraph.benchmark.PageRankBenchmark -h
usage: org.apache.giraph.benchmark.PageRankBenchmark [-e <arg>] [-h] [-s 
<arg>] [-v] [-V <arg>] [-w <arg>]
  -e,--edgesPerVertex <arg>      Edges per vertex
  -h,--help                      Help
  -s,--supersteps <arg>          Supersteps to execute before finishing
  -v,--verbose                   Verbose
  -V,--aggregateVertices <arg>   Aggregate vertices
  -w,--workers <arg>             Number of workers
Just substitute the class name of the example you want help for in the 
command above.

It is critical that the number of workers be NO MORE than one less than 
the available number of map slots on your cluster.

The following was used to execute the PageRankBenchmark example on my 

  hadoop jar giraph-jar-with-dependencies.jar 
org.apache.giraph.benchmark.PageRankBenchmark"-Xmx64g -Xms64g XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC 
-XX:-UseGCOverheadLimit" -Dgiraph.zkList= -e 1 -s 3 -v 
-V 50000 -w 83
