Package raft is a distributed consensus package that implements the Raft protocol.

This package is internally used by Dragonboat, applications are not expected to import this package.

ErrUnavailable is the error returned to indicate that requested entries are not available in LogDB.


func ClusterID

func ClusterID(clusterID uint64) string

ClusterID returns a human friendly form of ClusterID for logging purposes.

func IsLocalMessageType

func IsLocalMessageType(t pb.MessageType) bool

IsLocalMessageType returns a boolean value indicating whether the specified message type is a local message type.

func NodeID(nodeID uint64) string

NodeID returns a human friendly form of NodeID for logging purposes.


type ILogDB

type ILogDB interface {
	// GetRange returns the range of the entries in LogDB.
	GetRange() (uint64, uint64)
	// SetRange updates the ILogDB to extend the entry range known to the ILogDB.
	SetRange(index uint64, length uint64)
	// NodeState returns the state of the node persistented in LogDB.
	NodeState() (pb.State, pb.Membership)
	// SetState sets the persistent state known to ILogDB.
	SetState(ps pb.State)
	// CreateSnapshot sets the snapshot known to ILogDB
	CreateSnapshot(ss pb.Snapshot) error
	// ApplySnapshot makes the sbapshot known to ILogDB and also update the entry
	// range known to ILogDB.
	ApplySnapshot(ss pb.Snapshot) error
	// Term returns the entry term of the specified entry.
	Term(index uint64) (uint64, error)
	// Entries returns entries between [low, high) with total size of entries
	// limited to maxSize bytes.
	Entries(low uint64, high uint64, maxSize uint64) ([]pb.Entry, error)
	// Snapshot returns the metadata for the most recent snapshot known to the
	// LogDB.
	Snapshot() pb.Snapshot
	// Compact performs entry range compaction on ILogDB up to the entry
	// specified by index.
	Compact(index uint64) error
	// Append makes the given entries known to the ILogDB instance. This is
	// usually not how entries are persisted.
	Append(entries []pb.Entry) error

ILogDB is a read-only interface to the underlying persistent storage to allow the raft package to access raft state, entries, snapshots stored in the persistent storage. Entries stored in the persistent storage accessible via ILogDB is usually not required in normal cases.
