Identifying and Determining SPARQL Endpoint Characteristics

Lorey, Johannes in International Journal of Web Information Systems 2014 .

Publicly accessible SPARQL endpoints contain vast amounts of knowledge from a large variety of domains. Utilizing the structured query language, users can consume, integrate, and present data from such Linked Data sources for different application scenarios. However, oftentimes these endpoints are not configured to process specific workloads as efficiently as possible. Implemented restrictions further impede data consumption, e.g., by limiting the number of results returned per request. Assisting users in leveraging SPARQL endpoints requires insight into functional and non-functional properties of these knowledge bases. In this work, we introduce several metrics that enable universal and fine-grained characterization of arbitrary Linked Data repositories. We present comprehensive approaches for deriving these metrics and validate them through extensive evaluation on real-world SPARQL endpoints. Finally, we discuss possible implications of our findings for data consumers
