Let's learn a weekly tip from Databend.

Discuss proposals for Databend

We currently have some discussions about proposals on the GitHub that may help you understand the mechanics of the work or get involved.

  • Query Cache

    Clever use of caching can provide effective acceleration for Databend. We are implementing a single node memory-disk level 2 cache. Perhaps we will be moving towards distributed caching soon, more discussion on design and implementation is welcome, let's hear your thoughts. Related discussion #3478.

  • Re-organise our building systems

    Our current build / test system is quite complex. We have Makeflie, Dockerfile(s), and a lot of shell / python scripts. We want to build a build/test/benchmark system based on the Rust style, so if you have any good ideas, please feel free to share to us. Related discussion #3419.

  • Refactor CI pipleline into stages

    If you're interested in GitHub workflows, then take a look at this proposal. By refactoring CI, we have effectively reduced blocking and been able to maintain it better. Related discussion #3415.
