ScaleCube - Cluster
ScaleCube Cluster is a lightweight decentralized cluster membership, failure detection, and gossip protocol library. It provides an implementation of SWIM cluster membership protocol for Java VM.
It is an efficient and scalable weakly-consistent distributed group membership protocol based on gossip-style communication between the nodes in the cluster. Read blog post with distilled notes on the SWIM paper for more details.
It is using a random-probing failure detection algorithm which provides a uniform expected network load at all members. The worst-case network load is linear O(n) for overall network produced by running algorithm on all nodes and constant network load at one particular member independent from the size of the cluster.
ScaleCube Cluster implements all improvements described at original SWIM algorithm paper, such as gossip-style dissemination, suspicion mechanism and time-bounded strong completeness of failure detector algorithm. In addition to that we have introduced support of additional SYNC mechanism in order to improve recovery of the cluster from network partitioning events.
Using ScaleCube Cluster as simple as few lines of code:
// Start cluster node Alice as a seed node of the cluster, listen and print all incoming messages Cluster alice = Cluster.joinAwait(); alice.listen().subscribe(msg -> System.out.println("Alice received: " + msg.data())); // Join cluster node Bob to cluster with Alice, listen and print all incoming messages Cluster bob = Cluster.joinAwait(alice.address()); bob.listen().subscribe(msg -> System.out.println("Bob received: " + msg.data())); // Join cluster node Carol to cluster with Alice (and Bob which is resolved via Alice) Cluster carol = Cluster.joinAwait(alice.address()); // Send from Carol greeting message to all other cluster members (which is Alice and Bob) carol.otherMembers().forEach(member -> carol.send(member, Message.fromData("Greetings from Carol")));
