Using Isis2 from native C++ and from the command line

Jan 16, 2014 at 6:37 PM
One of our MEng students created this package for using Isis2 from native C++, and for issuing command line requests to the system. Right now it only supports the out-of-band file replication layer, but in fact we suspect that this is the high-value service. With it, you can dynamically vary replication for memory-mapped files without programming directly against the Isis2 library at all: you run Kaveri's server on each node, and then can access it from C++ code or by issuing commands to her little command-line application. We plan to do more with this, but it seems quite useful and reasonably stable. Kaveri has graduated but I'll support it.

The documentation for this code can be found here.
