Topic: Styx (protocol)


  
  Styx
Styx is the network protocol at the heart of the Inferno operating system.
In Greek mythology, Styx ("(river of) hate") is the name of a river which formed the boundary between earth and the underworld, Hades.
Styx was primarily a feature in the afterworld of Greek Mythology, but has been described as a feature present in the hell of christianity as well, notably in the Divine Comedy.

 9P - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Inferno file protocol was originally called Styx, but technically it has always been a variant of 9P.
There is a server implementation of 9P for Unix called u9fs included in the Plan 9 distribution, and a kernel client driver for Linux as part of the v9fs project.

 The Styx Architecture for Distributed Systems
Styx provides a view of a hierarchical, tree-shaped file system name space[Nee89], together with access information about the files (permissions, sizes, dates) and the means to read and write the files.
Styx, as a file system protocol, is merely a component in a more encompassing approach to system design: the presentation of resources as files.
Styx provides a single point in the design where control can be separated from the details of the underlying fabric, isolating both from changes in the other.

The site is a flat river terrace, abutted on the south by Styx Mill Reserve, a major wetland reserve, and fronts onto two state highways.
The Styx Mill master plan had envisaged a single-loaded road along this edge, which was supported by some Council staff but opposed by others who wished to establish a predator fence and have the development back onto the Reserve (as did the developer, initially).
In 2003 the developer elected to sell the balance of the original Northwood master plan area to Styx Mill Estates Limited, which is now pursuing a country club estate concept with gated cul-de-sac roads and predominantly rear-lot development.

The Styx Valley in the South West of Tasmania, Australia is home to the tallest hardwood trees on earth.
The Tasmanian government and logging company Gunns Ltd are planning to destroy the Styx forest by clearcutting the trees then bombing the area from the air with incendiaries, which make sure the whole area burns and is completely destroyed.
Destruction of the Styx Valley is already taking place at an alarming rate - in 1996, only 13% of the original cover of Eucalyptus regnans remained as ancient forest in Tasmania.

 Styx-on-a-Brick
The aim of the Vita-Nuova "styx-on-a-brick" project was to demonstrate the simplicity of the Styx protocol and the ease with which a Styx "stub" can be implemented on tiny devices.
The firmware could simply reply with an empty Link protocol message but it then has no way of giving timely notification of the completion of a pending Styx request as it is not allowed to start a link-protocol message exchange.
To get around the pending Styx reply problem, the link protocol header incorporates a flag that the slave (brick) can set to indicate that it is holding outstanding requests and that the master (PC) should continue to poll the slave in order to receive their replies in a timely fashion.

I would discuss the the Styx protocol, the Dis VM (virtual machine), the Limbo concurrent programming language, and other features which directly impact the usefulness of the NOS, both for developers and for users.
Finally, I would discuss environments where Inferno might be advantageously deployed, which factors affect the deployment decision process, as well as the future development of Inferno and how deployment might benefit a given environment in the future.

 Inferno's INTRO(5)
Each Styx message begins with a four-byte size field specifying the length in bytes of the complete message including the four bytes of the size field itself.
Because the message size is negotiable and some elements of the protocol are variable length, it is possible (although unlikely) to have a situation where a valid message is too large to fit within the negotiated size.
Most programs do not see the Styx protocol directly; instead calls to library routines that access files are translated by the mount driver, mnt(3), into Styx messages.

 [9fans] Anybody ported Limbo to Plan9 ?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
as far as i'm aware, the main difference between styx and 9p is in the authentication protocols (there are a few differences in the file permission bits as well, plus the message numbering is different).
styx does authentication once for a connection - the authentication happens at a different level to the styx protocol (and hence can be used to authenticate things other than styx connections).
i think there are still some issues to resolve in styx regarding exactly what a user "is".

 Operating System Seminars - Winter 19962, Week 8   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
Inferno uses a protocol called Styx to communicate with the file system in a manner very similar to Plan 9's 9p protocol, although Styx has a reduced number of message types.
All user processes (or 'threads' as they are called in Inferno) run on the Dis vm; this hardware-independence makes porting software trivial and adds to the portability of the system as a whole.
The seminar will cover the various parts of the Inferno system; the application layer, the Limbo programming language, the Dis virtual machine, the Styx networking protocol, and the Inferno kernel, as well as applications of the system as a whole.

 A Comparison of Three Network Programming Environments:
Inferno also has 3 other key components: the Styx communication protocols, the Limbo programming language, and the Dis virtual machine; all parts of Inferno are tightly integrated and were designed from the start specifically to work well together.
The reason for this is Inferno's Styx communication protocol, which is a well-placed abstraction layer; Inferno can be ported to different networks simply by implementing Styx for that network.
In addition, the COM component protocol for binary objects and applications is powerful and effective, and supports a high degree of code reuse, within the Windows environment only.

 Gnutella Forums - OT: Open Sourced FastTrack Clone
Since the FastTrack protocol is so complicated (encrypted everywhere), graphical frontends use giFT as a daemon and talk xml with it, making client development _very_ easy (downloads are also just http-based).
Note that this also means that it is easy to bootstrap the next generation of P2P networks and protocols: just provide any software that rocks and I will share my files there too.
We believe that the protocol was changed in such a way that you must now log into a central server to get a new "key" for generating the cipher state for encryption and decryption.

Carnap attempted to operationalise Russell's pure logical language so that it could be adapted to the verification theory of meaning with the introduction of "protocol sentences" sometimes called an observation sentences.
In "The Foundation of Knowledge", Schlick attempted to put the problem of Carnap's protocol sentences in a proper light.
What was originally meant, he said, by protocol statements, were statements that express the facts with absolute simplicity in which every science consists and which precede all knowledge and every judgement regarding the world.

Lastly, a standard communications protocol called Styx is used to access all resources regardless of their physical location or type.
Styx then packs these commands, formatting them not only for Inferno's use, but also so they will move in an appropriate manner across the network's actual protocol layer.
Styx even determines whether messages have arrived out of sequence and reorders the messages.

 The least you need to know about Inferno   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
The Inferno environment includes the Dis virtual machine to interpret programs written in the Inferno C-like language called Limbo and the Styx protocol, which takes the place of a remote procedure call (RPC).
Inferno's own communications protocol, called Styx, ensures that all these resources appear in a uniform way to the user.
Styx operates at a higher level than (and hence can be carried over) TCP/IP, ATM, and various serial protocols, including PPP and SLIP.

Another class of lock-free write/read protocols relies on the presence of certain atomic operations: compare-and-set or increment or decrement.
The fast readers and the writer interact via a NBW protocol; the slow readers interact via one of the protocols of the second class (e.g., a double-buffering protocol).
The hybrid protocol takes less space than either NBW or the double-buffering protocol applied to all readers; The hybrid protocol is faster than the double-buffering algorithm alone.
