With only two days left on the cluster we are really starting to feel under the gun! This afternoon’s trial run is producing some exciting results though. Asynchronous writes on the TERM2ID index has produced a nice boost in throughput – we just crossed 1 billion triples loaded in 97 minutes, that is a hefty 173,000 triples per second. We are making a few more tweaks while this trial is running and will probably start a new run later in the evening in the hopes of crossing the 200,000 triples per second barrier. More to come.
