DBpedia’s Triple Pattern Fragments: Usage Patterns and Insights

by Ruben Verborgh

Queryable Linked Data is published through several interfaces, including SPARQL endpoints and Linked Data documents. In October 2014, the DBpedia Association announced an official Triple Pattern Fragments interface to its popular DBpedia dataset. This interface proposes to improve the availability of live queryable data by dividing query execution between clients and servers. In this paper, we present a usage analysis between November 2014 and July 2015. In 9 months time, the interface had an average availability of 99.99%, handling 16,776,170 requests, 43.0% of which were served from cache. These numbers provide promising evidence that low-cost Triple Pattern Fragments interfaces provide a viable strategy for live applications on top of public, queryable datasets.
