upscaledb 2.2.1 Fr 10. Mär 21:33:03 CET 2017 (C) Christoph Rupp, firstname.lastname@example.org; http://www.upscaledb.com This is the README file of upscaledb. Contents: 1. About upscaledb is a database engine written in C/C++. It is fast, production-proven and easy to use. This release has a bunch of bug fixes, performance improvements and a new API for bulk operations. 2. Changes New Features * Added a new API function for bulk operations (ups_db_bulk_operations in ups/upscaledb_int.h) Bugfixes * Fixed compiler error related to inline assembly on gcc 4.8.x * Fixed bug when ups_cursor_overwrite would overwrite a transactional record instead of the (correct) btree record * Fixed several bugs in the duplicate key consolidation * issue #80: fixed streamvbyte compilation for c++11 * issue #79: fixed crc32 failure when reusing deleted blobs spanning multiple pages * Fixed a bug when recovering duplicates that were inserted with one of the UPS_DUPLICATE_INSERT_* flags * Minor improvements for the journalling performance * Fixed compilation issues w/ gcc 6.2.1 (Thanks, Roel Brook) Other Changes * Performance improvements when appending keys at the end of the database * The flags UPS_HINT_APPEND and UPS_HINT_PREPEND are now deprecated * Removed the libuv dependency; switched to boost::asio instead * Performance improvements when using many duplicate keys (with a duplicate table spanning multiple pages) * Committed transactions are now batched before they are flushed to disk * The integer compression codecs UPS_COMPRESSOR_UINT32_GROUPVARINT and UPS_COMPRESSOR_UINT32_STREAMVBYTE are now deprecated * The integer compression codec UPS_COMPRESSOR_UINT32_MASKEDVBYTE is now a synonym for UPS_COMPRESSOR_UINT32_VARBYTE, but uses the MaskedVbyte library under the hood. * Added Mingw compiler support (thanks, topilski) To see a list of all changes, look in the file ChangeLog. 3. Features - Very fast sorted B+Tree with variable length keys - Basic schema support for POD types (i.e. uint32, uint64, real32 etc) - Very fast analytical functions - Can run as an in-memory database - Multiple databases in one file - Record number databases ("auto-increment") - Duplicate keys - Logging and recovery - Unlimited number of parallel Transactions - Transparent AES encryption - Transparent CRC32 verification - Various compression codecs for journal, keys and records using zlib, snappy, lzf - Compression for uint32 keys - Network access (remote databases) via TCP/Protocol Buffers - Very fast bi-directional database cursors - Configurable page size, cache size, key sizes etc - Runs on Linux, Unices, Microsoft Windows and other architectures - Uses memory mapped I/O for fast disk access (but falls back to read/write if mmap is not available) - Uses 64bit file pointers and supports huge files (>2 GB) - Easy to use and well-documented - Open source and released under the APL 2.0 license - Wrappers for C++, Java, .NET, Erlang, Python, Ada and others 4. Known Issues/Bugs See https://github.com/cruppstahl/upscaledb/issues. 5. Compiling 5.1 Linux, MacOS and other Unix systems To compile upscaledb, run ./configure, make, make install. Run `./configure --help' for more options (i.e. static/dynamic library, build with debugging symbols etc). 5.2 Microsoft Visual Studio A Solution file is provided for Microsoft Visual C++ in the "win32" folder for MSVC 2013. All libraries can be downloaded precompiled from the upscaledb webpage. To download Microsoft Visual Studio Express Edition for free, go to http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/visualc/default.aspx. 5.3 Dependencies On Ubuntu, the following packages are required: - libdb-dev (optional) - protobuf-compiler - libprotobuf-dev - libgoogle-perftools-dev - libboost-system-dev - libboost-filesystem-dev - libboost-thread-dev - libboost-dev For Windows, precompiled dependencies are available here: https://github.com/cruppstahl/upscaledb-alien 6. Testing and Example Code Make automatically compiles several example programs in the directory 'samples'. To see upscaledb in action, just run 'samples/db1' or any other sample. (or 'win32/out/samples/db1/db1.exe' on Windows platforms). 7. API Documentation The header files in 'include/ups' have extensive comments. Also, a doxygen script is available; run 'make doc' to start doxygen. The generated documentation is also available on the upscaledb web page. 8. Porting upscaledb Porting upscaledb shouldn't be too difficult. All operating system dependend functions are declared in '1os/*.h' and defined in '1os/os_win32.cc' or '1os/os_posix.cc'. Other compiler- and OS-specific macros are in 'include/ups/types.h'. Most likely, these are the only files which have to be touched. Also see item 9) for important macros. 9. Migrating files from older versions Usually, upscaledb releases are backwards compatible. There are some exceptions, though. In this case tools are provided to migrate the database. First, export your existing database with ups_export linked against the old version. (ups_export links statically and will NOT be confused if your system has a newer version of upscaledb installed). Then use the newest version of ups_import to import the data into a new database. You can find ups_export and ups_import in the "tools" subdirectory. Example (ups_export of 2.1.2 was renamed to ups_export-2.1.2 for clarity): ups_export-2.1.2 input.db | ups_import --stdin output.db 10.
