Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a data representation of the Semantic Web, and its data volume is growing rapidly. Cloud-based systems provide a rich platform for managing RDF data. However, there is a performance challenge in the distributed environment when RDF queries, which contain multiple join operations, such as network reshuffle and memory overhead, are processed. To get over this challenge, this paper proposes a Spark-based RDF query architecture, which is based on Semantic

First of all, the proposed Spark-based query architecture adopts the mechanism of re-partitioning class data based on vertical partitioning, which can reduce memory overhead and spend up index data. Secondly, a method for generating query plans based on semantic connection set is proposed in this paper. In addition, some statistics and broadcast variable optimization strategies are introduced to reduce shuffling and data communication costs. The experiments of this paper are based on the latest SPARQLGX on the Spark platform RDF system. Two synthetic benchmarks are used to evaluate the query. The experiment results illustrate that the proposed approach in this paper is more efficient in data search than contrast systems.
