Project Description
SST is a framework for nodes in a single rack connected by RDMA to share local states and detect system events.

SST defines a state table for its members containing a row for each node which stores the local state of each object. The state variables are defined as a C++ POD struct with no pointers. Nodes can register predicates (properties on the state table) locally with the SST which fire functions called triggers which perform local computation and update the local row, if necessary. SST can be used in reads mode, which uses one-sided RDMA reads to update the table, or writes mode, which uses one-sided RDMA writes to update the table. It optimizes for RDMA operations and abstracts them from the programmer, thus providing a convenient interface to code applications to run over RDMA networks.
