The Cypher query planner is quite advanced and mature, and you can mostly rely on it to pick the best plan for your query. However, there are rare cases, or bugs, that might want you looking for ways to influence that plan. This article demonstrates practical usage of an index hint.
Neo4j Desktop, part of the Neo4j Graph Platform, is a client application that installs on your desktop OS. It lets you get started quickly by downloading and installing the enterprise edition, and supported plugins. You can group related graphs and applications under a Project. You can also build single-page web applications that run within Neo4j Desktop and have access to these services provided by Neo4j Desktop. There are a number of apps available at https://install.graphapp.io/
BOSTON, July 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – GraphAware, a leading Neo4j ISV and consulting practice, today announced the official launch of its Italian Research and Development entity Graph Aware S.r.l., headquartered in Lecce, Italy.This strategic investment by GraphAware represents a significant expansion as an ISV, with a fast growing development team of thought-leaders in GraphDBs with Neo4j, Natural Language Processing (NLP), Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).Led by Chief Scientist Alessandro Negro and CTO Christophe Willemsen,the Lecce R&D center is the main lab and development center for GraphAware’s flagship software platform Hume- with a dedicated local and remote development team...
“Lateral thinking” was a big topic back in 2004 when I was in the Network Operations Center (NOC) business; one definition is:
This is the second of a two post series on monitoring the Neo4j graph database with popular enterprise solutions such as Prometheus and Grafana. Monitoring the status and performance of connected data processes is a crucial aspect of deploying graph based applications. In Part 1 we have seen how to expose the graph database internals and custom metrics to Prometheus, where they are stored as multi-dimensional time series.
Database Monitoring is a crucial aspect of any application deployment. After all, databases manage data and sit quite down in the stack. They are robust pieces of software, but their setup and maintenance need care and attention since any problem has the potential to be disruptive to business.
There is one common performance issue our clients run into when trying their first Cypher queries on a dataset in Neo4j. When writing a query, be sure that it doesn’t match any cycles, or you can experience unpleasant surprises.
When developing web applications with frameworks like Vue.js the best approach is to subdivide it into well-defined and reusable components for the user interface, with the business logic being encapsulated in ‘services’.
Dependencies, like graphs, are everywhere. Achieving a goal is rarely possible in a vacuum and requires collaboration between individuals and/or processes.Eliminating dependencies completely is unrealistic- they are a part of life- but they can be streamlined to improve efficiency and reduce friction.
Few years ago I decided that one day I would create a Graph Technology Landscape map, which would be useful for everyone who wants to discover the players around graph technologies. I started to collect the companies and products, but my research has never manifested into a proper blog post. Till now. I am happy to announce, that the first version of my landscape is published, I hope we can consider this as a start of a long journey.
