Optimizing Cache Performance for Graph Analytics
A series of efficient cache optimizations for graph analytics. Currently we have the fastest shared-memory PageRank performance, beating GraphMat, Galois, Ligra significantly.
Optimizing Spark for Multi-core Systems
Applying some of the shared memory integration ideas in Spark to reduce memory footprint of Kmeans by 2.5x on a 6-core node and speed up PageRank 15% on a local computer. Project Report for 6.824 at MIT
Habanero-Hadoop: An Optimized MapReduce Runtime for Multi-core Systems
Currently I am working on it to further improve the implementation and plan to develop it into a full conference publication. More information can be found in the blog posts. Below are the best presentations, posters and workshop papers on the research project.
