Tagged Dataflow: a Formal Model for Iterative Map-Reduce

Angelos Charalambidis, Nikolaos Papaspyrou, Panos Rondogiannis
2014 International Conference on Extending Database Technology  
In this paper, we consider the recent iterative extensions of the Map-Reduce framework and we argue that they would greatly benefit from the research work that was conducted in the area of dataflow computing  ...  In particular, we suggest that the tagged-dataflow model of computation can be used as the formal framework behind existing and future iterative generalizations of Map-Reduce.  ...  We strongly believe that the further investigation of the interactions between dataflow and the novel approaches to distributed processing that have resulted from Map-Reduce, will prove very rewarding.  ...

Supporting Reconfigurable Parallel Multimedia Applications [chapter]

Maik Nijhuis, Herbert Bos, Henri E. Bal
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present Hinch, a runtime system for multimedia applications, that efficiently exploits parallelism by running the application in a dataflow style.  ...  Programming multimedia applications for System-on-Chip (SoC) architectures is difficult because streaming communication, user event handling, reconfiguration, and parallelism have to be dealt with.  ...  A '-' in this column means the system targets shared memory architectures. The events column indicates if the system has support for handling asynchronous user events.  ...

A survey paper on logical perspective to manage BigData with incremental map reduce

Snehal Dhamelia
2016 International Journal Of Engineering And Computer Science  
That means incremental MapReduce processes big data in a less time and stores it in a more optimized form.  ...  To improve the time of processing big data and optimizing data content of big data we applied PageRank and k-means iteratively along with MapReduce.  ...  Dataflow Systems such as CIEL, Spark, Spark Streaming and Optimus extend acyclic batch dataflow to allow dynamic modification of the dataflow graph, and thus support iteration and incremental computation  ...
