We present RDFox—a main-memory, scalable, centralised RDF store that supports materialisation-based parallel datalog reasoning and SPARQL query answering. RDFox uses novel and highly-efficient parallel reasoning algorithms for the computation and incremental update of datalog materialisations with ef- ficient handling of owl:sameAs. In this system description paper, we present an overview of the system architecture and highlight the main ideas behind our indexing data structures and our novel reasoning algorithms. In addition, we evaluate RDFox on a high-end SPARC T5-8 server with 128 physical cores and 4TB of RAM. Our results show that RDFox can effectively exploit such a machine, achieving speedups of up to 87 times, storage of up to 9.2 billion triples, memory usage as low as 36.9 bytes per triple, importation rates of up to 1 million triples per second, and reasoning rates of up to 6.1 million triples per second.

Comment1 Take Home Depot Survey at Homedepotcomsurveys.com, November 22, 2019 at 7:30 a.m.:

Whenever I heard the word Store, I must remember the home depot store. I have a lot of good memories of the home depot store. Home Depot is the world's largest home improvement store at present, and this store selling the products for very low prices. Most of the people in the US are buying their home improvements in the home depot store and giving their excellent feedback about their experience on the home depot store at the official home depot survey website https://www.homedepotcomsurveys.com/. Some people are winning the $5000 & $3000 gift card by taking this official home depot survey.
