drawing large graphs

Hello,
I am new to graphviz -- I am drawing a large graph (~15K vertices, ~25K edges) using sfdp. If I simply run sfdp it produces a drawing with very large ellipses used to represent vertices (and with the vertex names inside). Instead, I want to get the nodes drawn as really small circles, or even dots. Can somebody point me in the right direction (in particular, provide an example of the syntax used to achieve this). Thanks in advance.

Set nodes to have shape=point:

node [shape=point]

You can also set the width (or height) attribute to make the points
smaller or larger.

In addition, if you do want to see labels, you can remove the overlap with

sfdp -Goverlap=prism

You can scale the graph before overlap removal, with

sfdp -Goverlap_scaling=-10 -Goverlap=prism

say.
