  • KurzfassungAbstract
    High-performance analytical data processing systems often run on servers with large amounts of memory. A common data structure used in such environment is the hash tables. This paper focuses on investigating efficient parallel hash algorithms for processing large-scale data. Currently, hash tables on distributed architectures are accessed one key at a time by local or remote threads while shared-memory approaches focus on accessing a single table with multiple threads. A relatively straightforward “bulk-operation” approach seems to have been neglected by researchers. In this work, using such a method, we propose a high-level parallel hashing framework, Structured Parallel Hashing, targeting efficiently processing massive data on distributed memory.


    We present a theoretical analysis of the proposed method and describe the design of our hashing implementations. The evaluation reveals a very interesting result - the proposed straightforward method can vastly outperform distributed hashing methods and can even offer performance comparable with approaches based on shared memory supercomputers which use specialized hardware predicates. Moreover, we characterize the performance of our hash implementations through extensive experiments, thereby allowing system developers to make a more informed choice for their high-performance applications.
