Aegisthus

A Bulk Data Pipeline out of Cassandra. Aegisthus implements a reader for the SSTable format and provides a map/reduce program to create a compacted snapshot of the data contained in a column family.

BUILDING

Aegisthus is built via Gradle (http://www.gradle.org). To build from the command line: ./gradlew build

RUNNING

Please see the wiki or checkout the scripts directory to use our sstable2json wrapper for individual sstables.

TESTING

To run the included tests from the command line: ./gradlew build

ENHANCEMENTS

  • Reading
    • Commit log readers
      • Code to do this previously existed in Aegisthus but was removed in commit 35a05e3f.
    • Split compressed input files
    • Add CQL support
      • This way the user doesn't have to add the key and column types as job parameters. Perhaps we will do this by requiring the table schema like SSTableExporter does.
  • Writing
    • Add an option to snappy compress output.
    • Add an output format for easier downstream processing.
      • See discussion on issue #36.
    • Add a pivot format
      • Create an output format that contains a column per row. This can be used to support very large rows without having to have all of the columns in memory at one time.
  • Packaging
    • Publish Aegisthus to Maven Central
    • Publish Shaded/Shadowed/FatJar version of Aegisthus as well
