XDGBench: 3rd party benchmark results against graph databases

London, April 30th 2013

Tokyo Institute of Technology and IBM Research published an interesting research about a benchmark between Graph Databases in the Clouds called:

"XGDBench: A Benchmarking Platform for Graph Stores in Exascale Clouds"

This research conducts a performance evaluation of four famous graph data stores AllegroGraph, Fuseki, Neo4j, an OrientDB using XGDBench on Tsubame 2.0 HPC cloud environment. XGDBench is an extension of famous Yahoo! Cloud Serving Benchmark (YCSB).

OrientDB is the faster Graph Database among the 4 products tested. In particular OrientDB is about 10x faster (!) than Neo4j in all the tests.

Look at the Presentation (25 slides) and Research PDF.


  1. It would be nice also to have ObjectivityDB in the comparison.

  2. I notice in their conclusion that they say graph databases perform poorly... not a great testament for any of the databases tested!

  3. Well, I think is referring to: "However, we had to use 1024 vertices because some database servers used in this evaluation performed poorly which made our experiments restricted to 1024 vertices." Before that it says that "Form the performance evaluation of the graph DBs we observed that OrientDB performed well during the data loading phase and with all the workloads."

  4. Hiii Luca Can you provide me the link for XDGBench i want to use this tool for benchmarking perpose
