> Generally, both the Downpour framework of Google Brain [1] and the Caffe's distributed
Hogwild implementation are extensions of the shared memory Hogwild training. In this ticket,
we refer to the second one.
> In specific, each server group masters a subset of parameters (i.e., Param objects) when
synchronizing with other server groups. It aggregates all updates for its subset and sends
back (e.g., broadcast) the updated parameters back to all other server groups. The synchronization
is conducted asynchronously. The frequency can be fixed in the first implementations. Finally,
it should be tuned automatically to fully utilize the network bandwidth.
