Searching¶For a functional description see here : Functional definition
Each peer owns a peer id which is unique and generated during the first start. This ID is used to identify a peer, it's better than the previous usage of peer IP, considering this situation :
- A put in queue a file entry f from B, B doesn't know the hashes of this file entry.
- B change his IP address.
- A want to download f, it can ask B for the hashes even B's IP changed.
Core threads¶There are three kind of threads in the core in addition to the main thread :
- Downloading thread :
- Uploading thread :
- Updating file cache thread :
Updating the file cache¶
Here is the algorithm for the thread (
FileManager::FileUpdater) which will periodically update the file cache and persist it.
D : The set of shared directories T : Time during the hashes are computed (for example 30s) F : A set of file initialy empty Loop : For each d in D (recursively) : - Synchronize physical folders and files whith d content - Add in F the files which doesn't have computed hashes t : Time.now For each f in F : - Compute the unkown hash of files f - Remove f from F If (Time.now - t) > T : break - Wait T - (Time.now - t) - Persist the entire cache in a file
