Known Limitations

  • All the internal data stored in DAG Stores is backed by a local DB. Because of file system limitations the storage lifecycle between the SDK and our Red Sift platform is different.

  • When a DAG is evaluated a namespace for its internal data is created based on the hash of the sift.json file. In our platform, that namespace is never deleted (only updated). For the SDK the namespace is stored under the <sift_name>/sdk_tmp/hilt.dbd directory.

  • The SDK is currently only compatible with Google Chrome.

SDK Container (Docker for Mac)

  • In OS X systems, Docker can’t mount directories outside the /User/ directory. So, it’s required for the Sift directory to be located under the user directory too.
