Subject [jira] [Resolved] (GIRAPH-1022) Out-of-core mechanism for input superstep and graph data

> Currently the out-of-core mechanism has several issues:
> - It does not work properly in input superstep
> - It has several bugs (correctness, and performance) for graph data structure
> - It is not considering specialized message classes for out-of-core messages.
> This diff addresses some of these problems, and provides a cohesive mechanism for input
superstep and graph data. With this way of doing out-of-core, efficiently handling out-of-core
messages is straightforward (will be provided in a separate diff).
> This diff provides an adaptive mechanism to remove users out of the loop for using out-of-core.
If the graph can be fit in memory, all the computation remains in memory. If memory is very
limited and GC is killing the performance, or the graph cannot fit in memory, out-of-core
mechanism kicks in and helps improve performance in many cases, and avoids application failure
due to OutOfMemory exception or it's related exceptions.
