While there, developed the open source C/C++ toolchain build script Crosstool
Designed and implemented secure, high-performance, highly available email server software
using C++, Java, SSL, SNMP, JDBC, and Sybase on Linux and Solaris.
I designed and implemented the following aspects of the Omniva server:
- Nonblocking queued architecture capable of handling
thousands of simultaneous clients
using only a handful of threads; the queued design protects against deadlocks.
- Crashproof stable queues providing stable storage within a single
keyserver, and serving as the basis for crashproof mirroring of keyserver
contents to hot remote servers.
- Stackable protocol code allowing HTTP tunnelling and/or SSL encryption
(using OpenSSL) of client sessions.
- A custom SNMP agent (using UCD-SNMP)
providing keyserver and mirror health monitoring.
- An SNMP subagent library and a custom MIB compiler generating C++
wrapper objects to make SNMP coding easier. Released as open source; see www.kegel.com/snmp.
