Does powergraph provide the function like parameter server?

I need to provide some global parameters that every processes can get and update. Does powergraph provide this function?

No, powergraph does not expose a parameter server, per se. However, several algorithms need to synchronize parameters across instances. You may be interested in how the implementation of LDA synchronizes the global topic counts: https://github.com/dato-code/PowerGraph/blob/master/toolkits/topicmodeling/cgslda.cpp#L168

Hope that helps, Chris
