Example usage in example/java/voldemort/example/
Example configurations in config/
Code layout
annotations - Helper annotations
client - Code specific to the client
cluster - domain model for a voldemort cluster
routing - Code specific to routing requests
serialization - Code for turning bytes into objects and vice versa
server - Code for handling client requests
store - All the store implementations used by both client and server
utils - Helpers!
versioning - Vector clock stuff
xml - Code for serializing the configuration data...should probably be move to serialization
Background Resources
- Amazon Dynamo Paper --
- OpenDHT and Bamboo papers
- BDB Performance:
- Origin of vector clocks:
- Brewer's conjecture:
Current build is from r19
Supporting other clients
- Each store is available via all protcols, they are seperated by port
- Wire format vs. protocol (HTTP vs. Tcp/IP), protocol buffers
- How to abstract wire format?
- A given serialization type may or may not be supported by the client language
Socket servers share threadpool?
A WireProtocol takes bytes and creates a voldemort request, and takes objects to create a voldemort response.
Likewise the client does the opposite
