Shared Data Layer (SDL) provides a high-speed interface to access shared storage
Shared Data Layer in the RAN Intelligent Controller
Shared Data Layer (SDL) provides a lightweight, high-speed interface for accessing shared data storage. The purpose is to enable utilizing clients to become stateless, conforming with, e.g., the requirements of the fifth generation mobile networks.
Namespaces provide data isolation within SDL data storage. That is, data in certain namespace is isolated from the data in other namespaces. Each SDL client uses one or more namespaces. Namespaces can be used, for example, to isolate data belonging to different use cases.
Keys and Data
Clients save key-data pairs. Data is passed as a
bytes type. SDL stores the
data as it is. Any structure that this data may have (e.g. a data structure
pickle) is meaningful only to the client itself. Clients are
responsible for managing the keys. As namespaces provide data isolation,
keys in different namespaces always access different data.
Backend Data Storage
Backend data storage refers to data storage technology behind SDL API, which handles the actual data storing. SDL API hides the backend data storage implementation from SDL API clients, and therefore backend data storage technology can be changed without affecting SDL API clients. Currently, Redis database is used as a backend data storage solution.
Install from PyPi
python3 -m pip install ricsdl
Install using the source
python3 setup.py install
Instructions how to use SDL can be found from O-RAN Software Community (SC) Documentation under Near Realtime RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) section: O-RAN SC Documentation Home
To run the unit tests run the following command in the package directory:
python3 -m pytest
The ci is done with the
tox tool. See
tox.ini file for details.
