##3xsd 3xsd is a native epoll server serving TCP/UDP connections, a high performance static web server, a failover dns server, a http-based distributed file server, a load-balance proxy-cache server, and a ‘warp drive’ server. Written in python, take the full power of multi-cores.
##Features in detail:
More to find in .conf file.
Small file under 1KB single process test(full in-mem), contrast with nginx configuring accept_mutex off, 80% performance. Multi processes test, with reuse_port enabling kernel, 95% performance of nginx(and beyond, may be 105% or more, based on process number, I tested 2-4). The tests above is not quite strict， but I just want to say that it’s fast enough.
And with pipelining enabled, 3wsd will perform better with 3-4 requests/send(5%-10% performance increase), 2 requests/send have the same speed with non-piplining.
Early testing indicated that: UDT tunnel(no encrypt) performing 50%-60% speed of direct TCP connection with ZetaTCP, and package lost rate remaining below 0.6%, while direct connection has 1.4%-3%. (Test CN-US WAN link with 150ms-280ms latency, through the always-jammed CUCN submarine cable) However, UDT tunnel beats normal TCP connection without ZetaTCP, with 50% - 4 times (commonly 1-2 times) outperforming.(v)(Test link like above)
Update: And an encrypted UDT tunnel with AES-CBC/CFB will has 50% performance decrease (because the method itself processes doubled size of data, and extra iv/padding data transfer). Now with a Blowfish-CTR method, tunnel data transfer performance is closed to raw non-encrypt tunnel. I believe that with a intel AES-NI supported CPU(like XEON E3-1240/1270), AES-128-CTR can also do it.
###More performance: There are at lease two ways to increase the performance of 3xsd:
1.Install Cython, and rename _3xsd.py to _3xsd.pyx, run it. Cython will compile _3xsd.py lib into a _3xsd.so file, using static type declarations. This can gain about 5%-6% performance increasement. 2.Use PyPy.This can gain about 10%-15% performance increasement(or more).
#OS requirement & install:
CentOS 6/7 with python 2.6/2.7, Debian 6/7. Python 2.7 recommended.
Doing this before running the program(minimal requirement):
yum install python-gevent pysendfile python-setproctitle python-psutil python-pip
(python-pip is optional if install dpkt)
Dpkt module is also needed when running 3nsd DNS server, pip install it.
If you want to use 3wdd, python-pytun, pyudt4, pycrypto, python-lzo are also needed.
yum install python-crypto2.6 python-lzo (for centos6) yum install python2-crypto (for centos7)
will quickly install pycrypto(probably do some ‘linking’ works) and lzo. The other two depended on pip install.
Probably you need this easy-install.pth file in python’s site-packages dir:
import sys; sys.__plen = len(sys.path) ./pycrypto-2.6.1-py2.6-linux-x86_64.egg ./pyudt4-0.6.0-py2.6-linux-x86_64.egg import sys; new=sys.path[sys.__plen:]; del sys.path[sys.__plen:]; p=getattr(sys,’__egginsert’,0); sys.path[p:p]=new; sys.__egginsert = p+len(new)
I provide pre-compiled package [pyudt_tun-centos6-x86_64.tar.gz](https://github.com/zihuaye/3xsd/blob/master/pyudt_tun-centos6-x86_64.tar.gz) and [pyudt_tun_lzo-centos7-x86_64.tar.gz](https://github.com/zihuaye/3xsd/blob/master/pyudt_tun_lzo-centos7-x86_64.tar.gz) to simplify the installation procedure of pyudt4 & python-pytun.
Be aware of pyudt4 having some bugs, you’d better download it’s source code of epoll-fixes branch and apply the patch I offered. See changelog.txt v0.0.20 2016.03.07 fixed section for detail. (Already included in [pyudt_tun-centos6-x86_64.tar.gz](https://github.com/zihuaye/3xsd/blob/master/pyudt_tun-centos6-x86_64.tar.gz) and [pyudt_tun_lzo-centos7-x86_64.tar.gz](https://github.com/zihuaye/3xsd/blob/master/pyudt_tun_lzo-centos7-x86_64.tar.gz))
Or, of cause you can let pip do it all for you(not including patching pyudt4):
pip install 3xsd
In a debian, you can use apt-get to install python-pip(pip) or python-setuptools(easy_install), then to install the packages following.
Python Packages(Modules) version reference:
gevent==0.13.8(1.0.1, 1.1) greenlet==0.4.2 pysendfile==2.0.1 setproctitle==1.0.1 psutil==0.6.1 dpkt==1.6(1.8.6) python-pytun==2.2.1 pyudt4==0.6.0(epoll-fixes branch) pycrypto==2.6.1 python-lzo==1.8
System libs version reference:
libevent-1.4.13-4(not actually used, just needed for gevent to function) udt-4.11-6 lzo-2.03-3.1
To install a module of specific version(like gevent 0.13.8), you can:
pip install gevent==0.13.8
This will install the latest version of gevent(pypy will need it):
pip install git+git://github.com/surfly/gevent.git#egg=gevent
