    it? What's the big deal about not fitting well with SQLx? This isn't a requirement for such a library to be successful. What other problems is it allegedly suffering from?


  • little-raft

    The lightest distributed consensus library. Run your own replicated state machine! ❤️

    Project mention: Show /r/rust: Viewstamped Replication for Rust | | 2022-10-30

    My perspective is that VSR seems much more easier to grasp than Raft based on reading and contributing to Ilya Andreev's Little Raft. The selection of primary replica ("leader election" in Raft), for example, is dead-simple in VSR (you maintain a deterministic order of nodes and round-robin). Also, VSR seems to do a better job at decoupling the different scenarios at protocol level (backup fell behind, crashed, etc.) whereas in Raft the AppendEntries is a big hammer that does everything. I have very little experience on Paxos so can't really compare it to VSR.
