Python-zero-cache 2.2 version

INTRODUCTION

Python-zero-cache is a Python bindings for the zero-cache kernel space caching system.

BUILDING

You need the C++ compiler and SWIG to build this software. Also the source code of the zero-cache system is needed.

  1. Check that the symlinks to zero-cache sources in source directory of the python-zero-cache project is correct.

  2. Build binaries with GNU Make. Type this command in the project's root directory:

    $ make

  3. Build debian package if you use Debian-based Linux distribution:

    $ make deb

You can find debian packages in the python-zero-cache/deb directory.

INSTALLING

Debian-based Linux distribution users can install debian packages from python-zero-cache/deb directory.

Another way is installing with Makefile default mechanism:

$ make install

USAGE

First of all you must load the server zero-cache module into your kernel:

$ insmod source/server/zero_cache.ko

The zero_cache device file will be created at the /dev directory. Now the zero-cache server is ready to work.

EXAMLPES

Your client application must import the zero_cache module to access zero-cache classes.

This is example of typical client application:

#!/usr/bin/env python

import zero_cache

client = zero_cache.TypedClient()

index = 0
data = 1024

client.WriteLong(index, data)
result = client.ReadLong(index)

More usage examples you can find in files of test directory.
