Now it is used for distributed networking, discovery, configuration data, scheduling, and load balancing services. Parts of the original design proved successful: Unfortunately, some of these features tended to be chatty on the wire with clients, could put quorum pressure on the cluster when idling, and could unpredictably garbage-collect older key revisions. The etcd3 system reflects the lessons learned from etcd2.
The new API revisits the design of key expiry TTLs, replacing them with a lightweight streaming lease keepalive model. Watchers are redesigned as well, replacing the older event model with one that streams and multiplexes events over key intervals. The v3 data model does away with explicit key hierarchies and unreliable watch windows, replacing them with a flat binary key space with transactional, multiversion concurrency control semantics.
We invite you to join us in the celebration of the performance and scalability improvements that make etcd and the production-ready v3 the cornerstone of cloud native, distributed systems. We are pleased that we have been working with CoreOS team as well as the community on this technology, and we look forward to continuing our collaboration with CoreOS in hope to further advance the technology and its ecosystem.
Native etcd3 clients communicate over a gRPC protocol. The protocol messages are defined using protobuf , which simplifies the generation of efficient RPC stub code and makes protocol extensions easier to manage. Likewise, gRPC is better at handling connections. Keys expire in etcd2 through a time-to-live TTL mechanism.
For every key with a TTL, a client must periodically refresh the key to keep it from being automatically deleted when the TTL expires. Each refresh establishes a new connection and issues a consensus proposal to etcd to update the key. Leases in etcd3 replace the earlier notion of key TTLs. Leases reduce keep-alive traffic and eliminate steady-state consensus updates. This model reduces keep-alive traffic when multiple keys are attached to the same lease.
Likewise, keep-alives are processed by the leader, avoiding any consensus overhead when idling. A watch in etcd waits for changes to keys. Unlike systems such as ZooKeeper or Consul that return one event per watch request, etcd can continuously watch from the current revision. In etcd2, these streaming watches use long polling over HTTP, forcing the etcd2 server to wastefully hold open a TCP connection per watch. When an application with thousands of clients watches thousands of keys, it can quickly exhaust etcd2 server socket and memory resources.
The etcd3 API multiplexes watches on a single connection. Instead of opening a new connection, a client registers a watcher on a bidirectional gRPC stream.
Multiple watch streams can even share the same TCP connection. The etcd2 model only keeps the most recent key-value mappings available; older versions are discarded. However, applications which track all key changes or scan the entire key space need a reliable event stream to consistently reconstruct past key states. To avoid prematurely dropping events so that these applications can work even if briefly disconnected, etcd2 maintains a short global sliding window of events.
However, if a watch begins on a revision that the window passed over, the watch may miss discarded events. The discovery attribute enables different configuration arguments specific to the respective clustering method. The included Vagrant file uses the vagrant-secret and vagrant-aws plugins.
