Subject [jira] [Commented] (GIRAPH-78) Be smarter about multiple instances of the same vertex
Date Thu, 17 Nov 2011 07:02:51 GMT


Jake Mannix commented on GIRAPH-78:

Yeah, that's what I've been thinking too: each vertex has independent edge values to its destination,
and doesn't keep a reference to the target vertex *value*, just its id.  So yeah, unless the
<I> typed objects are big, I'm not sure what you can do here.

be good to cache instances of z so a,b,c all point at the same instance, rather than generating
multiple copies of the same remote vertex during vertex reading.  This is less important with
primitive types and the recent work done there, but very useful for more complex types.  Since
the vertex readers are in userland, it would be good to provide these facilities as a library
implementing users can access. ]
