Parallelizing Federated SPARQL Queries in Presence of Replicated Data

Abstract : Federated query engines have been enhanced to exploit new data localities created by replicated data, e.g., Fedra. However, existing replication aware federated query engines mainly focus on pruning sources during the source selection and query decomposition in order to reduce intermediate results thanks to data locality. In this paper, we implement a replication-aware parallel join operator: Pen. This operator can be used to exploit replicated data during query execution. For existing replication-aware federated query engines, this operator exploits replicated data to parallelize the execution of joins and reduce execution time. For Triple Pattern Fragment (TPF) clients, this operator exploits the availability of several TPF servers exposing the same dataset to share the load among the servers. We implemented Pen in the federated query engine FedX with the replicated-aware source selection Fedra and in the reference TPF client. We empirically evaluated the performance of engines extended with the Pen operator and the experimental results suggest that our extensions outperform the existing approaches in terms of execution time and balance of load among the servers, respectively.
