Subject [jira] [Commented] (GIRAPH-10) Aggregators are not exported
Date Thu, 29 Sep 2011 19:49:45 GMT


Avery Ching commented on GIRAPH-10:

This is definitely an open question here.  Here's a quick thought off the top of my head.

How about something like:

public interface AggregatorsWriter {
    void initialize(TaskAttemptContext context, int superstep) throws IOException;

    void writeAggregators(Collection<Aggregator<? extends Writable>> aggregators)
        throws IOException, InterruptedException;

    void close(TaskAttemptContext context)
        throws IOException, InterruptedException;

Then we could define a method that lets the user select the frequency of how frequently to
write the aggregators maybe with an enum (ALL_SUPERSTEPS, LAST_SUPERSTEP...).

We could easily implement a default AggregatorsWriter that simply dumps the name and aggregator
values with the registered aggregator name (maybe class name too) and then the value.toString().
 And users can implement something better if they like.

Another alternative would be to support writing aggregators separately by the type, but might
be a little excessive and could be done later....hopefully someone else also chimes in with
some thoughts.

to do this.
