Openstack Swift: Introduction for Developers (Part II)

Object server

  • Source File
  • Swift object serve is the storage server for objects.
  • Each object is stored as files on native file-system.
  • Object server keeps object with its metadata on a plain file.
  • PUT, GET and HEAD are useful to look at.

Running benchmarking tools

  • swift-bench
  • ssbench
  • cosbench

swift-bench is the easiest to use. You need to get sample config file and change accordingly. There are two ways to run swift-bench:

  1. With proxy (default config)
  2. Without proxy, where application directly writes to an object server
