At my job we have need of a high-performance hash lookup database in our antispam product. It's used to store Bayes tokens for quick lookups on individual scanning systems, and is read-only in the fast path (mail scanning) with updates taking place in another process. For the last few years, we've been using a plain old BerkeleyDB hash database via Perl's DB_File, but with all the hype about Tokyo Cabinet and its benchmark results I figured it was time to take a look.
