hashtable

Say Thanks!

Simple async hash table server with text protocol. The project was built for learning purpose only.

Features:

  • asynchronous TCP server with epoll
  • simple text protocol
  • hash table with opened addressing (double hashing)
  • universal hashing algorithm based on random prime numbers generation
  • string hashing with Horner's rule
  • auto extend table size when fill ratio >= 0.5

usage example

Build

with Vagrant:

git clone git@github.com:dizballanze/hashtable.git
cd hashtable
vagrant up
vagrant ssh
cd proj
make

Protocol

Protocol supports four operations:

  • SET <key> <value>\n - sets <key> with <value>
  • GET <key>\n - gets <key> from hash table if exists
  • DELETE <key>\n - remove <key> from hash table if exists
  • COUNT\n - count of items in hash table

Usage

Start server:

$ ./hashtable 0.0.0.0 31337
Ready to accept connection on 0.0.0.0:31337...

Connect to server (by telnet for example):

$ telnet 127.0.0.1 31337
Connected to 127.0.0.1.

SET mykey Hello World!
DONE

GET mykey
DONE
Hello World!

SET foo bar
DONE

COUNT
