Subject Re: Is it normal that a same algorithm for 4 profiles calculus implemented both in giraph and graphlab gives different output with same input?

Hi Francesco,

Here are few thoughts on reasons this may happen:

- I haven't written any graphlab application myself, but the synchronous
vs. asynchronous model can generally be a reason for differences. It is
possible that such differences do not manifest on smaller graphs. What's
the size of the smaller input graphs where the result is equal?
- More generally, and taking into consideration the differences in the
model, how certain are you that the implementations are equivalent?
- For the bigger graphs, do you have a reference result that you can use,
to see what the output should be?

Also, are you planning to contribute your Giraph implementation to Apache
Giraph? That'd be great.
