Nearly 15 years ago, Hellerstein, Haas and Wang proposed online aggregation (OLA), a technique that allows users to (1) observe the progress of a query by showing iteratively refined approximate answers, and (2) stop the query execution once its result achieves the desired accuracy. In this demonstration, we present G-OLA, a novel mini-batch execution model that generalizes OLA to support general OLAP queries with arbitrarily nested aggregates using efficient delta maintenance techniques. We have implemented G-OLA in FluoDB, a parallel online query execution framework that is built on top of the Spark cluster computing framework that can scale to massive data sets. We will demonstrate FluoDB on a cluster of 100 machines processing roughly 10TB of real-world session logs from a video-sharing website. Using an ad optimization and an A/B testing based scenario, we will enable users to perform real-time data analysis via web-based query consoles and dashboards.
