Building automatically

git clone https://github.com/Tencent/phxqueue
cd phxqueue/
bash build.sh

Now that all modules are built, you can continue to quickstart.

Building manually

Download PhxQueue source

Download the phxqueue.tar.gz and un-tar it to $PHXQUEUE_DIR.

Install dependencies

  • Prepare the $DEP_PREFIX diectory for dependency installation:

    export $DEP_PREFIX='/your/directory/for/dependency'
    
  • Protocol Buffers and glog

    Build Protocol Buffers and glog with ./configure CXXFLAGS=-fPIC --prefix=$DEP_PREFIX. Then create symlinks:

    rm -r $PHXQUEUE_DIR/third_party/protobuf/
    rm -r $PHXQUEUE_DIR/third_party/glog/
    ln -s $DEP_PREFIX $PHXQUEUE_DIR/third_party/protobuf
    ln -s $DEP_PREFIX $PHXQUEUE_DIR/third_party/glog
    
  • LevelDB

    Build LevelDB in $PHXQUEUE_DIR/third_party/leveldb/ and ln -s out-static lib.

  • PhxPaxos and PhxRPC

    Build PhxPaxos in $PHXQUEUE_DIR/third_party/phxpaxos/. Build PhxRPC in $PHXQUEUE_DIR/third_party/phxrpc/.

  • libco

    Git clone libco to $PHXQUEUE_DIR/third_party/colib/.

Compile PhxQueue

cd $PHXQUEUE_DIR/
make

PhxQueue distribution

PhxQueue is structured like this:

phxqueue/ ................. The PhxQueue root directory
├── bin/ .................. Generated binary files
├── etc/ .................. Example configuration files
├── lib/ .................. Generated library files
├── phxqueue/ ............. PhxQueue source files
├── phxqueue_phxrpc/ ...... PhxQueue with PhxRPC implementation
└── ...

the output files are located in bin/ and lib/, while the sample configure files are located in etc/.

Quickstart

The built PhxQueue is ready to run simple demos.

Preparing the setup

PhxQueue accesses multiple files at the same time. Make sure to set high enough (> 4000) open file limit with ulimit -Sn or ulimit -n.

Starting the Store nodes

Start 3 Store nodes (add -d if run as daemon) as shown bellow:

bin/store_main -c etc/store_server.0.conf
bin/store_main -c etc/store_server.1.conf
bin/store_main -c etc/store_server.2.conf

You can follow the status of the nodes and check for any errors in these log files as shown bellow:

ps -ef | grep store_main
tail -f log/store.0/store_main.INFO
tail -f log/store.1/store_main.INFO
tail -f log/store.2/store_main.INFO

NOTICE: To run properly, at least 2 Store nodes need to be started, otherwise error log will occur below:

MASTERSTAT: ERR: Propose err. paxos_ret 404 ...

Starting the Consumer nodes

Start 3 Consumer nodes:

bin/consumer_main -c etc/consumer_server.0.conf
bin/consumer_main -c etc/consumer_server.1.conf
bin/consumer_main -c etc/consumer_server.2.conf

You can follow the status of the nodes and check for any errors in these log files as shown bellow:

ps -ef | grep consumer_main
tail -f log/consumer.0/consumer_main.INFO
tail -f log/consumer.1/consumer_main.INFO
tail -f log/consumer.2/consumer_main.INFO

Sending test requests

Now that both Store and Consumer nodes have been deployed, you can use the benchmark tool to send some test requests:

bin/test_producer_echo_main

You will get the output from test Producer:

produce echo succeeded!

Now let's see the output of Consumer (only 1 of 3 Consumer nodes):

consume echo succeeed! ...

Running benchmarks

bin/producer_benchmark_main 10 5 5 10

Watch the Consumer log files:

tail -f log/consumer.0/consumer_main.INFO
tail -f log/consumer.1/consumer_main.INFO
tail -f log/consumer.2/consumer_main.INFO

This is an example of the output you can expect from the Consumer log:

INFO: Dequeue ret 0 topic 1000 consumer_group_id 1 store_id 1 queue_id 44 size 1 prev_cursor_id 9106 next_cursor_id 9109

Clearing data and logs created during testing

While testing PhxQueue, a lot of logs and data is generated. Run log/clear_log.sh to clear logs and data/clear_data.sh to delete data. Make sure that you are running these commands against PhxQueue that does not hold any important data. Commands listed here will result in permanent data loss.

Quickstart with Docker

Quickstart with Docker

Deploy distributed PhxQueue

Normally, each node should be deployed on separate machine. You need to configure etc/*.conf configuration files for each node.

Files located in directory etc/:

globalconfig.conf .................Global config
topicconfig.conf ................. Topic config
storeconfig.conf ................. Store config
consumerconfig.conf ...............Consumer config
schedulerconfig.conf ..............Scheduler config
lockconfig.conf ...................Lock config

Deloy and modify these files on all target machines.

Deploying Store nodes

Store is the storage module for queues, using the Paxos protocol for replica synchronization.

Deploy these configs to 3 Store nodes and start each node:

bin/store_main -c etc/store_server.0.conf -d
bin/store_main -c etc/store_server.1.conf -d
bin/store_main -c etc/store_server.2.conf -d

Deploying Consumer nodes

Consumer pulls and consumes data from Store.

Deploy these configs to 3 Consumer nodes and start each node:

bin/consumer_main -c etc/consumer_server.0.conf -d
bin/consumer_main -c etc/consumer_server.1.conf -d
bin/consumer_main -c etc/consumer_server.2.conf -d

Deploying Lock nodes (Optional)

Lock is a distributed lock module. You can deploy Lock independently, providing a common distributed lock service.

Set skip_lock = 1 in topicconfig.conf to disable distributed Lock.

Deploy these configs to 3 Lock nodes and start each node:

bin/lock_main -c etc/lock_server.0.conf -d
bin/lock_main -c etc/lock_server.1.conf -d
bin/lock_main -c etc/lock_server.2.conf -d

Deploying Scheduler nodes (Optional)

Scheduler gathers global load information from Consumer for disaster recovery and load balancing. If no Scheduler is deployed, Consumer will be assigned according to weight configured.

If you want to deploy Scheduler, you will need to deploy Lock first.

Set use_dynamic_scale = 0 in topicconfig.conf to disable Scheduler.

Deploy these configs to 3 Scheduler nodes and start each node:

bin/scheduler_main -c etc/scheduler_server.0.conf -d
bin/scheduler_main -c etc/scheduler_server.1.conf -d
bin/scheduler_main -c etc/scheduler_server.2.conf -d

Viewing logs

For each node, there is a log file where you can trace current node status and errors. For example, you can access log file for Store node with ID 0 like shown bellow:

tail -f log/store.0/store_main.INFO
