VIVO ISF: Investigating Speed Factors

Maintaining and upgrading harvester extensions for populating VIVO from Elements requires testing. Through our development of Elements, we are able to generate large databases of test data - in excess of 25,000 “affiliated” users and 147,000 co-authors for more than 170,000 research outputs. In VIVO, these account for over 30 million triples 

This presentation explores the limitations of populating and maintaining a dataset of such size, the effects of highly linked data (not just users and publications, but concepts, grants, even external co-authors), the hardware requirements, and investigates how scalability could be addressed.
