VENTI(2)                                                 VENTI(2)

     NAME
          venti - archival storage server

     SYNOPSIS
          #include <u.h>
          #include <libc.h>
          #include <venti.h>

     DESCRIPTION
          The Venti library provides support for writing Venti servers
          and clients.  Other manual pages describe the library
          functions in detail.

          Venti-cache(2) describes a simple in-memory block cache to
          help clients.

          Venti-conn(2) describes routines for manipulating network
          connections between Venti clients and servers.  Venti-
          client(2) and venti-server(2) describe routines for writing
          clients and servers on top of these.

          Venti-fcall(2) describes the C representation of Venti pro-
          tocol messages and data structures.  It also describes rou-
          tines that convert between the C representation and the net-
          work and disk representations.

          Venti-file(2) describes routines for writing clients that
          manipulate Venti file trees (see venti(6)).

          Venti-log(2) describes routines to access in-memory log
          buffers as well as the logging that is done automatically by
          the library.

          Venti-mem(2) describes wrappers around the canonical
          malloc(2) routines that abort on error.

          Venti-packet(2) describes routines for manipulating zero-
          copy chains of data buffers.

          Venti-zero(2) describes routines to zero truncate and zero
          extend blocks (see venti(6)).
