ClauDB is a REDIS implementation in Java. At the moment is in development and only implements a small subset of commands and features. The objetive is implement a full functional one-to-one replacement for REDIS (2.8 branch).
You will probably wonder why I do this, the answer is I do it Just For Fun.
Initially I called this project TinyDB, but there's another project with the same name, so, I've decided to chage to ClaudDB.
Clau is :key: in Valencià, a language spoken in eastern Spain, and ClauDB is a key-value database.
ClauDB is implemented using Java8. Is single thread, like REDIS. It uses asynchronous IO (netty) and reactive programing paradigm (rxjava).
Requests come from IO threads and enqueues to rxjava single thread scheduler. Then IO thread is free to process another request. When request is done, the response is sended to client asyncronously. Then, every request is managed one by one, in a single thread, so there's no concurrency issues to care about.
Now only implements a subset of REDIS commands, but is usable.
ClauDB also supports persistence compatible with REDIS, RDB dumps and AOF journal. It can create compatible RDB files you can load in a REDIS server.
Now ClauDB support master/slave replication, a master can have multiple slaves, but at the moment slaves can't have slaves.
Also implements partially the Pub/Sub subsystem.
Performance is quite good, not as good as REDIS, but it's good enough for Java.
This is ClauDB
$ redis-benchmark -t set,get -h localhost -p 7081 -n 100000 -q SET: 47664.44 requests per second GET: 50226.02 requests per second
And this is REDIS
$ redis-benchmark -t set,get -h localhost -p 6379 -n 100000 -q SET: 97656.24 requests per second GET: 98716.68 requests per second
In my laptop (intel core i5, with 4G of RAM)
In the latest version, ClauDB includes an option to use an off heap memory cache. See usage section
You need to clon the repo:
$ git clone https://github.com/tonivade/claudb.git
ClauDB uses Gradle as building tool, but you don't need Gradle installed, just type:
$ ./gradlew build
This scripts automatically download Gradle and then runs the tasks.
Or if you have Gradle installed, just type
$ gradle build
Create all-in-one jar
$ gradle fatJar
You can create your own docker images for ClauDB using the provided
$ docker build -t claudb .
And then run the image
$ docker run -p 7081:7081 claudb
You can start a new server listening in default port 7081.
$ wget http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/com/github/tonivade/claudb/1.7.0/claudb-1.7.0-all.jar $ java -jar claudb-1.7.0-all.jar
or using jrun utility
$ jrun com.github.tonivade:claudb:com.github.tonivade.claudb.Server
Option Description ------ ----------- --help print help -V enable verbose log -P enable persistence (experimental) -O enable off heap memory (experimental) -N enable keyspace notifications (experimental) -h <String> host (default: localhost) -p <Integer> port (default: 7081)
Also you can use inside your project using Maven
<dependency> <groupId>com.github.tonivade</groupId> <artifactId>claudb</artifactId> <version>1.7.0</version> </dependency>
Or embed in your source code
RespServer server = ClauDB.builder().host("localhost").port(7081).build(); server.start();
Now is possible to generate a native image thanks to graalvm. You can generate one with this command:
$ ./gradlew clean nativeImage
Some features are not available like lua runtime and offheap memory.
