Mikio Hirabayash released his TokyoCabinet DB. So I took a minute this morning to play around with it!

TokyoCabinet:
http://tokyocabinet.sourceforge.net/

My morning's hack:
http://hg.tangent.org/TokyoEngine

I had to modify his engine to make this work. There were no C++ declaration around the include headers, and the tokyocabinet.pc file has a dangling variable in its libs.
I know nothing about performance at the moment... this was just me playing around for a bit. Tokyo Cabinet is his successor to QDBM and the work was sponsored by Mixi.jp (aka... think Facebook for Japan fro the ones of you who never study what the rest of the world is doing).

I've played with qdbm. It worked very well but the code was pretty grungy. Hope his new stuff is better.

I'm interested in having all the speed advantages of qdbm/cabinet for a high performance application and also being able to use mysql to poke around/report/maintain my data. Any chance it would work if you did this?

tokyo cabinet -> tokyo tyrant -> your storage engine plugin -> mysql

I could also send requests to tokyo tyrant from my other processes.
