Kumofs is a simple and fast distributed key-value store.
- Data is partitioned and replicated over multiple servers.
- Extreme single node performance; comparable with memcached.
- Both read and write performance got improved as servers added.
- Servers can be added without stopping the system.
- Servers can be added without modifying any configuration files.
- The system does not stop even if one or two servers crashed.
- The system does not stop to recover crashed servers.
- Automatic rebalancing support with a consistency control algorithm.
- Safe CAS operation support.
- memcached protocol support.

It measured performance of one server node using three client machines. Each client machine gets 12,800 of 1KB values from the server using 32 threads. The source code is available from frsyuki's repository. (kumofs, voldemort).
It measured performance of the cluster using 50 client machines. Each client machine gets 1,024,000 entries form the cluster using 32 threads.
kumo-servers store data and replicate them into other kumo-servers. kumo-managers watch life or death of kumo-servers and proceed automatic rebalancing when the number of kumo-servers is changed. kumo-gatway relay the requests from client applications to kumo-servers. Because kumo-gateway implements memcached protocol, you can use memcached client library to access kumofs.
Following libraries are required to build kumofs:
- linux >= 2.6.18
- g++ >= 4.1
- ruby >= 1.8.6
- Tokyo Cabinet >= 1.4.10
- MessagePack for C++ >= 0.3.1
- MessagePack for Ruby >= 0.3.1
- libcrypto (openssl)
Configure and install in the usual way:
$ ./bootstrap # if needed $ ./configure $ make $ sudo make install
This example runs kumofs on 6-node cluster. Run kumo-manager on mgr1 and mgr2, kumo-server on svr1, svr2 and svr3, then run kumo-gateway on cli1.
[on mgr1]$ kumo-manager -v -l mgr1 -p mgr2 [on mgr2]$ kumo-manager -v -l mgr2 -p mgr1 [on svr1]$ kumo-server -v -l svr1 -m mgr1 -p mgr2 -s /var/kumodb.tch [on svr2]$ kumo-server -v -l svr2 -m mgr1 -p mgr2 -s /var/kumodb.tch [on svr3]$ kumo-server -v -l svr3 -m mgr1 -p mgr2 -s /var/kumodb.tch [ ]$ kumoctl mgr1 attach [on cli1]$ kumo-gateway -v -m mgr1 -p mgr2 -t 11211 [on cli1]$ # use memcached client on 11211/tcp
See documents for details.
This example runs kumofs on single host.
[localhost]$ kumo-manager -v -l localhost [localhost]$ kumo-server -v -m localhost -l localhost:19801 -L 19901 -s ./kumodb1.tch [localhost]$ kumo-server -v -m localhost -l localhost:19802 -L 19902 -s ./kumodb2.tch [localhost]$ kumo-server -v -m localhost -l localhost:19803 -L 19902 -s ./kumodb3.tch [localhost]$ kumoctl localhost attach [localhost]$ kumo-gateway -v -m localhost -t 11211 [localhost]$ # have fun with memcached client on 11211/tcp
