===================================== ketama.go libketama-style consistent hashing in Go Author: Nolan Caudill (firstname.lastname@example.org) Date: 2011-06-04 ===================================== This is a small library to do libketama-style consistent hashing. A common pattern in a caching cluster (eg, memcache) is to take the hash of the key modded by the number of cache servers to determine which node to cache to. This provides a distribution as even as your hashing algorithm but whenever a server is added or removed, all your keys have to rehash. With consistent hashing, in the event of the removal of a cache node, all keys that were hashing to one node to (in theory) evenly distribute to the other cache nodes. The addition of a cache node works in a similar manner in that all nodes will evenly give up a portion of their cache keys to the new node. This is a first pass at this and things seems to work at first glance but consider this alpha. =========== USAGE =========== ketama_test.go provides a working example of how to use this library.
