# status should be stable. in use for some time. note that this software has been superseded by ventisrv for inferno and is not developed further. # intro memventi is a venti daemon, it speaks the same venti protocol as the real venti in Plan 9 from Bell Labs. in short, it is a storage server that stores data blocks up to 56kb using its sha1 hash (called its score) to address it. the main difference between memventi and venti is that where venti keeps an index of present scores in a big on-disk lookup table, memventi keeps the index in memory (in an memory-efficient manner). this allows for a simpler design though with limited storage capacity. the manual page for memventi hopefully answers most questions, if not you can always ask me by email. # documentation see the manual page, memventi.8. # author & license. this code was written by mechiel lukkien, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. all code is in the public domain. # todo see the caveats-section in the manual page, and the file todo.txt.
