The time-evolving large graph has received attention due to it's participation in real-world applications such as social networks and PageRank calculation. It is necessary to partition a large-scale dynamic graph in a streaming manner in order to overcome the memory bottleneck while partitioning the computational load. Reducing network communication and balancing the load between the partitions are the criteria for achieving effective run-time performance in graph partitioning. Moreover, an optimal resource allocation is needed to utilise the resources while storing the graph streams into the partitions. A number of existing partitioning algorithms have been proposed to address the above problem. However, these partitioning methods are incapable of scaling the resources and handling the stream of data in real-time. In this study, we propose a dynamic graph partitioning method called Scalable Dynamic Graph Partitioner(SDP) using the streaming partitioning technique. The SDP contributes a novel vertex assigning method, communication-aware balancing method, and a scaling technique in order to produce an efficient dynamic graph partitioner. Experiment results show that the proposed method achieves up to 90% reduction of communication cost and 60%-70% balancing the load dynamically, compared with previous algorithms. Moreover, the proposed algorithm significantly reduces the execution time during partitioning.
