NAME Digest::Guava - Perl XS interface to the Google's Guava consistent hashing algorithm SYNOPSIS use Digest::Gauva qw(guava_hash); guava_hash($integer_key, $buckets_count); OR use Digest::Gauva; Digest::Gauva::guava_hash($integer_key, $buckets_count); DESCRIPTION Google's Guava hashing algorithm. Assign to input a "bucket" in the range [0, buckets), in a uniform manner that minimizes the need for remapping as buckets grows. That is, consistentHash(h, n) equals: * n - 1, with approximate probability 1/n; * consistentHash(h, n - 1), otherwise (probability 1 - 1/n). SEE ALSO See the wikipedia article on consistent hashing: <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consistent_hashing> for more information. Google's implementation of Guava hash at <https://github.com/google/guava>.
