Re: Filesystem Storage engine for drizzle


CC drizzle-discuss list, so that others who are interested in this will get
the right information.

for each table, one file will be created, this file is dumped from protobuf,
containing all the necessary information for a table to act correctly, e.g.
columns and table options. One of the table option will contain a file path
which links to the real file containing the raw data.

therefore when you try to select a table, the meta-file (protobuf of the
table) is fetched first to find what the real file is and then iterator over
the file.

Hope this helps.
