(Tool description last modified on 2020-06-9.)
RDFox is a highly scalable in-memory RDF triple store and semantic reasoning engine. It supports shared memory parallel reasoning for RDF, RDFS, OWL 2 RL and Datalog. It is cross-platform software written in C++ that comes with a Java wrapper allowing for easy integration with any Java-based solution. It is supported on windows, MacOS and Linux.
As an in-memory store, ultimate capacity depends on available RAM, but RDFox is economical with memory and can store between 1 and 1.5 billion triples in 50 GB. It is very fast, and very effective at parallelisation: on a computer two Xeon E5-2650 processors with 16 physical cores it materialised LUBM 5k in only 42s, a 10x speedup compared to using a single core.
RDFox also loaded 19.47B triples (WatDiv benchmark) in 11041s on 64 threads, using 1.5TB of RAM.
RDFox also has many advanced features, including: native support for owl:sameAs; incremental update and aggregation; explainability; extensions to Datalog; and extensive SPARQL support, including named graphs.
