WRM: PIGFARM: Spring 2017 Senior Design Project – “Combining Apache Pig Scripts for Performance and Collaboration”

Mar 29, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Carson Cumbee
Laboratory for Analytic Sciences


PIGFARM is an LAS sponsored project for NCSU’s Computer Science Senior Design Class for Spring 2017.  PIGFARM is an effort to create a multi-query optimization system for Apache Pig scripts that run on Hadoop Map/Reduce.  The core technique being investigated is fusing the map portions of multiple scripts running over the same data and writing out explicit temporary files that are then loaded into the remaining portions of the various scripts for parallel execution.  This presentation will give motivation for the project, the approaches taken by the project, and preliminary test results of the project on standard Benchmark datasets for Apache Pig.
