venti – archival storage server


#include <u.h>
#include <libc.h>
#include <venti.h>


The Venti library provides support for writing Venti servers and clients. Other manual pages describe the library functions in detail.

Venti-cache(2) describes a simple in-memory block cache to help clients.

Venti-conn(2) describes routines for manipulating network connections between Venti clients and servers. Venti-client(2) and venti-server(2) describe routines for writing clients and servers on top of these.

Venti-fcall(2) describes the C representation of Venti protocol messages and data structures. It also describes routines that convert between the C representation and the network and disk representations.

Venti-file(2) describes routines for writing clients that manipulate Venti file trees (see venti(6)).

Venti-log(2) describes routines to access in-memory log buffers as well as the logging that is done automatically by the library.

Venti-mem(2) describes wrappers around the canonical malloc(2) routines that abort on error.

Venti-packet(2) describes routines for manipulating zero-copy chains of data buffers.

Venti-zero(2) describes routines to zero truncate and zero extend blocks (see venti(6)).
