bLSM initial release ==================== This is an initial release of bLSM, which is scheduled to appear in Sigmod 2012. bLSM is a general-purpose log structured merge tree that targets highly-available, scalable, key-value storage systems. We have been careful to minimize the number of seeks performed by read and scan optimizations, and have introduced a new spring-and-gear "level scheduler" that bounds write latencies. The implementation is currently geared toward performance testing, and has a number of limitations that we plan to address in short order: * Recovery does not work until after enough data has been inserted to start filling disk with data. * bLSM does not take advantage of write skew to reduce write amplification. As a side effect, certain heavily skewed workloads will lead to unacceptably write latencies. We plan to address this by partitioning the state on disk, and scheduling merges based on the heat of each partition. In the mean time, feel free to drop me a line! Licensing ========= bLSM uses several 3rd party open source libraries and tools. This file summarizes the tools used, their purpose, and the licenses under which they're released. Portions of bLSM are based upon Stasis' "Rose" LSM-Tree implementation. http://code.google.com/p/stasis/source/browse/trunk/benchmarks/rose.cpp Except as specifically stated below, the 3rd party software packages listed below are not distributed as part of this project, but instead are separately downloaded from the respective provider and built on the developer’s machine as a pre-build step. bLSM relies upon Stasis, a transactional storage library written and maintained by the authors of bLSM. TCL/TK license (BSD-style) http://code.google.com/p/stasis/source/browse/trunk/COPYING http://code.google.com/p/stasis/ bLSM includes an example MapKeeper-compatible storage server, which relies upon the MapKeeper prototocol specification, which we also maintain: https://github.com/m1ch1/mapkeeper Apache 2.0 license: https://github.com/m1ch1/mapkeeper/blob/master/LICENSE.txt The generated MapKeeper files (and, therefore the bLSM MapKeeper bindings) also require Thrift and Boost. Thrift is a serialization and RPC framework: http://thrift.apache.org/ Apache 2.0 license: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/thrift/trunk/LICENSE?view=markup Boost is a collection of utility libraries for C++: http://www.boost.org/ Boost Software License: http://www.boost.org/users/license.html
