Readme

hound-dog

Build Status

Library for self-registration and service discovery that utilises Etcd for distributed key-value storage. Wraps service data in etcd within a rendezvous hash

Usage

require "hound-dog"

HoundDog.configure do |settings|
  settings.service_namespace = "service"  # namespace for services
  settings.etcd_host = "127.0.0.1"        # etcd connection config
  settings.etcd_port = 2379
  settings.etcd_ttl  = 30                 # TTL for leases
end

# Create a new Discovery instance
discovery = HoundDog::Discovery.new(
  service: "api",
  uri: "https://api1:3000",
)

# There are already some nodes in etcd
discovery.nodes          #=> [{name: "ulid1", uri: #<URI:0xdeadbeef @fragment=nil, @host="api0", @password=nil, @path="", @port=3000, @query=nil, @scheme="https", @user=nil>}]
discovery.find("sauce")  #=> {name: "ulid1", uri: #<URI:0xdeadbeef @fragment=nil, @host="api0", @password=nil, @path="", @port=3000, @query=nil, @scheme="https", @user=nil>}

# Register self to etcd
spawn(same_thread: true) { discovery.register }

# Rendezvous hash transparently updated
discovery.nodes  # [{name: "ulid1", uri: #<URI:0xdeadbeef @fragment=nil, @host="api0", @password=nil, @path="", @port=3000, @query=nil, @scheme="https", @user=nil>}, {name: "ulid2", uri: #<URI:0xbeefcafe @fragment=nil, @host="api0", @password=nil, @path="", @port=3000, @query=nil, @scheme="https", @user=nil>}]

etcd

Namespacing

All services are registered beneath configured service namespace, i.e. a node under namespace service will be keyed as service/#{service_name}/#{name}. Values are base64 encoded strings in the form uri.

Version

Developed against ETCD_API=3 and etcd-server v3.3.13, using etcd's JSON-gRPC API gateway.
