1. Introduction

TerarkDB is a core product of Terark. It is a RocksDB distribution that powered by ©™Terark algorithms. with these algorithms, TerarkDB is able to store more data and access much faster than official RocksDB(3+X more data and 10+X faster) on same hardware.

TerarkDB is completely compatible(binary compatible) with official RocksDB.

3. Components

TerarkDB has two components:

3.1. TerarkZipTable

TerarkZipTable is contained in the terark-zip-rocksdb submodule. TerarkZipTable is a RocksDB's SSTable(Static Sorted Table) implementation that using ©™Terark's searchable compression algorithms.

3.2. Terark modified RocksDB

We forked RocksDB and made a few changes to fit our algorithms, we've added it as submodule rocksdb here.

Our changes for RocksDB does not change any RocksDB API, and does not have any extra dependencies, say, Terark modified RocksDB does not depend on TerarkZipTable(Without TerarkZipTable, Terark RocksDB works exactly same as official RocksDB).

Our changes includes:

  • Add optional two pass scan on SSTable build, existing SSTable is not impacted
  • Add TerarkZipTable config by env var
    • This change using functions in libterark-zip-table as weak symbol, this is why it does not depends on TerarkZipTable
