Highlights of Recent PR

Support azblob storage

Azure Blob Storage is an object storage service provided by Azure. After this PR, GreptimeDB now supports Azure Blob Storage as well:

  • add ObjectStoreConfig::Azblob for azblob object storage configurations.
  • Create azblob instance in the datanode when configured.
  • Add azblob storage tests in tests-integration.

Support /api/v1/series for Prometheus

We now support /api/v1/series for Prometheus. This interface can be used to implement query hints or completions, and is one of the meta-information-related interfaces provided by Prometheus

Add HTTP API for CPU profiling

This PR adds an HTTP API for CPU profiling. It also refactors the mem prof handler to make chaining handlers to the router easier.

Sample at 99 Hertz, for 5 seconds, output report in protobuf format.

curl -s '0:4000/v1/prof/cpu' > /tmp/pprof.out

Sample at 99 Hertz, for 60 seconds, output report in flamegraph format.

curl -s '0:4000/v1/prof/cpu?seconds=60&output=flamegraph' > /tmp/pprof.svg

Sample at 49 Hertz, for 10 seconds, output report in text format.

curl -s '0:4000/v1/prof/cpu?seconds=10&frequency=49&output=text' > /tmp/pprof.txt

This feature is disabled by default. To enable it, we need to build the binary with pprof feature

cargo build --features=pprof

Because the pprof API needs to sample for a specific duration, we must apply the timeout layer before it. This PR also closes the test region in TestBase, which should fix the test case test_flush_and_reopen.

Add timestamp types as arguments

We add more argument types for to_unixtime function

These are the updates of GreptimeDB and we are constantly making progress. We believe that the strength of our software shines in the strengths of each individual community member. Thanks for all your contributions.
