Hi David,

Can we extend the functionality of revoscaler package i.e can we use function of other package in revoscaler for doing faster data analysis.

@Sunny, yes, you can implement your own Big Data algorithms with the RxExec function, which you can use to run arbitrary R code in parallel across cores or across machines in a cluster. The result will be a list of computation results on parts of the data, which you'll need to consolidate with more R programming. The technique lends itself well to problems where partitioning the data is natural (e.g. random forests), but with programming you can implement just about any statistical method (or at least approximate it).

Is it possible to do scheduling e.g i want to run a particular function after specified time interval
