Software Heritage Object Storage

Project description


Content-addressable object storage for the Software Heritage project.

Quick start

The easiest way to try the swh-objstorage object storage is to install it in a virtualenv. Here, we will be using [[|virtualenvwrapper]]_ but any virtual env tool should work the same.

In the example below we will create a new objstorage using the [[|pathslicer]] backend.

~/swh$ mkvirtualenv -p /usr/bin/python3 -i swh.objstorage swh-objstorage
(swh-objstorage) ~/swh$ cat >local.yml <<EOF
  cls: pathslicing
    root: /tmp/objstorage
    slicing: 0:2/2:4/4:6
(swh-objstorage) ~/swh$ mkdir /tmp/objstorage
(swh-objstorage) ~/swh$ swh-objstorage -C local.yml serve -p 15003
INFO:swh.core.config:Loading config file local.yml
======== Running on ========
(Press CTRL+C to quit)

Now we have an API listening on we can use to store and retrieve objects from. I an other terminal:

~/swh$ workon swh-objstorage
(swh-objstorage) ~/swh$ cat >remote.yml <<EOF
  cls: remote
(swh-objstorage) ~/swh$ swh-objstorage -C remote.yml import .
INFO:swh.core.config:Loading config file remote.yml
Imported 1369 files for a volume of 722837 bytes in 2 seconds
