Running LMDBService WS NoSQL in Azure Container Instance

Now that LMDBService runs in a docker image, it is possible to run it into Azure Container Instance.

Here are the steps to follow:

  • Build the docker image locally with its dockerfile
    • docker image build –tag mydocker/myserver d:\dev\docker
  • Create a Repository in Azure Repository
  • Connect in docker shell to the repo
    • docker login lmdbwsprod.azurecr.io -u lmdbwsprod -p xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
  • Tag the prod repository
    • docker tag mydocker/myserver lmdbwsprod.azurecr.io/prod
  • Push the docker image to the Azure repository
  • Go to Azure portal and choose Azure Repository
    • Choose prod repository
    • Check tags and choose latest
    • Click Run Instance in […] button
    • Open port 7001
    • Click OK
  • Go to Azure Container Instance
    • choose the container and click Overview
    • Retrieve the IP address

Test the URL : http://40.114.209.198:7001/MyServer/LMDB/?request=set-data&key=Key_v99&value=Value_v99&name=cache_NET

LMDB – I love that stuff !

Since few months, I work on LMDB for Azure stuff. First, I have:

  • migrated the library from Linux to Windows x64
  • adapted the .NET Layer Interop
  • made custom clients code

Now, I have setup the Azure Web App Svc for hosting a simple file uploader where files will be stored in LMDB NoSQL database. The way of using it is so simple :

        private static void StoreFile(string path)
        {
            string key = path;
            string value = String.Empty;
            byte[] buffer = File.ReadAllBytes(path);

            LMDBEnvironment _env;
            string dir = "c:\\temp\\cache_net10B";
            _env = new LMDBEnvironment(dir);
            _env.MaxDatabases = 2;
            _env.MapSize = 10485760 * 100;
            _env.Open();

            DateTime dtStart = DateTime.Now;
            var tx = _env.BeginTransaction();
            var db = tx.OpenDatabase("DB", new DatabaseConfiguration { Flags = DatabaseOpenFlags.Create });
            var enc = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8;
            tx.Put(db, enc.GetBytes(key), buffer);
            tx.Commit();
            db.Dispose();

            DateTime dtStop = DateTime.Now;
            TimeSpan ts = dtStop - dtStart;
            string str = String.Format("Time elapsed for set:{0} ms", ts.TotalMilliseconds);
            Logger.LogInfo(str);

            _env.Dispose();
        }

 

If you want to test LMDB in your environement, download that stuff:

Download the LMDB Windows DLL and console_app.Exe
Download the LMDB Windows DLL, the .NET WRapper DLL and console_app.Exe

Programming IoT with Azure and MXCHIP device

I recently have done a 2 days event in MS Office about programming MXCHIP and Azure IoT stuff. It’s amazing what that kind of little hardware can achieve. For now, I have to make a demo for my managers.

The code and compilers are included into VSCode extensions and SDK Kit.

Everything is simple in the demo mode. But in real, you spend a lot of time… :)
