PSync: Partial/Full Sync Library based on BF and IBF¶
PSync is a C++ library for name synchronization that implements the PSync protocol. It uses Invertible Bloom Lookup Table (IBLT), also known as Invertible Bloom Filter (IBF), to represent the state of a producer in partial sync mode and the state of a node in full sync mode. An IBF is a compact data structure where difference of two IBFs can be computed efficiently. In partial sync, PSync uses a Bloom Filter to represent the subscription of list of the consumer.
PSync uses the ndn-cxx library.
