QueryFS, a virtual filesystem based on queries, and related tools

Mikhail Raskin

Abstract


Modern hardware and software allow users to store and transmit huge data collections. Applications can rely on filesystem (or database) interface for most tasks. Unfortunately, indexing and searching these data collections has to be done using specialized tools with limited interoperability with existing software. This paper describes a tool providing a unified POSIX filesystem interface (using FUSE) to the results of search queries. The search queries themselves may be expressed using high-level languages, including SQL and specialized Common Lisp API.
