Subject [jira] [Commented] (GIRAPH-139) Change PageRankBenchmark to be accessible via bin/giraph
Date Wed, 08 Feb 2012 19:39:00 GMT


Jakob Homan commented on GIRAPH-139:

bq. However, I don't see why we need to remove the run() and main() methods from
Why not have both methods to run the benchmark?
My concern is twofold: code duplication, in that most of the code in PageRankBenchmark duplicates
code in GiraphRunner, and user confusion over which approach is correct.  I ran into issues
trying to run the benchmark via main.  Also, since PageRankBenchmark had to be refactored
into separate classes to support the two vertex types, it will require adjusting the main
driver code, which means we're fixing duplicated code already.  Is it better to work on making
bin/giraph easier to use than to expend that energy on maintaining duplicate code?  

Eventually, I would like to get the benchmark code into the examples directory and have it
work the same way the example jar for Hadoop does: one can do bin/giraph giraph-examples.jar
and be presented with all the example programs available and how to run them.

> Currently the PageRankBenchmark has its own main and tool implementation and is difficult
to access from the bin/giraph script.  It would be better if everything were accessible via
bin/giraph.  The benchmark is particularly problematic because it uses inner classes for its
two actual Vertex implementations, which have to be specified on the command line as their
.class name(ie org.apache.giraph.benchmark.PageRankBenchmark$PageRankHashMapVertex) rather
than just with dots, as one would expect.
