  • Embedded write-heavy on-disk cache, write-amplification
    6 projects | reddit.com/r/golang | 6 Jan 2022
    I'm looking for an embedded database/KV-store that supports a write-heavy workload of large blocks of bytes and some kind of eviction policy. I'm currently using sqlite3 with a bunch of triggers and the blob API, but it's not really suitable for write-heavy workloads. I've currently exposed the interface somewhat in https://github.com/anacrolix/squirrel, the primary use case is from https://github.com/anacrolix/torrent. My recent research suggests an LSM-based KV-store like rocksdb or leveldb, but those don't have great interfaces in Go, and don't seem to support an eviction policy as far as I can tell (which is surprising given they would be very well suited to it). There are some alternatives like buntdb, but those all look designed for smaller/string values.
