VIVO ISF: Investigating Speed Factors
A presentation given by Graham Triggs, Symplectic at the VIVO 2015 conference in Cambridge, MA.
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.
