RocksDB Put Operation


RocksDB Put operation creates a new record in the specified DB. RocksDB code is very flexible and has several levels of abstractions. If you are planning to understand the code path you can start reading from the functions specified in this post.

DB Put Operation
RocksDB stores the recently inserted data in the MemTable and periodically flushes the data to disk based SSTables (sst files). But MemTable data can be lost when power failure occurs or the application crashes. It needs to make the changes durable. It uses WAL file to provide the durability. Every write is stored in MemTable and also committed to WAL. The entry function for the Put operation is db/db_impl/ .

Write Batch

RocksDB creates a write batch even for single write. The write batch will have a set of key, value records, the count of records in it, sequence number, and a checksum. This code is in db/
WAL Commit
This code is in db/db_impl/ It serializes the write batch in to disk storage format and and appends to the current WAL file. db/ and file/

MemTable Write

The MemTable Insert code is in WriteBatchInternal::InsertInto() function. There are different configuration option to perform MemTable write. The code is in DBImpl::WriteImpl()
