Da Vinci Client

This allows you to eagerly load some or all partitions of the dataset and perform queries against the resulting local cache. Future updates to the data continue to be streamed in and applied to the local cache.

Record Transformer

This feature enables applications to transform records as they’re being consumed and stored in the Da Vinci Client. It’s capable of handling records that are compressed and/or chunked.


To use the record transformer, you will need to implement the DaVinciRecordTransformer abstract class, then pass in a functional interface into setRecordTransformerFunction().

When a message is being consumed, the DaVinciRecordTransformer will modify the value before it is written to storage.

Here’s an example DaVinciRecordTransformer implementation:

package com.linkedin.davinci.transformer;

import com.linkedin.davinci.client.DaVinciRecordTransformer;
import com.linkedin.venice.utils.lazy.Lazy;
import org.apache.avro.Schema;

public class StringRecordTransformer extends DaVinciRecordTransformer<Integer, String, String> {
  public StringRecordTransformer(int storeVersion) {

  public Schema getKeyOutputSchema() {
    return Schema.create(Schema.Type.INT);

  public Schema getValueOutputSchema() {
    return Schema.create(Schema.Type.STRING);

  public String put(Lazy<String> value) {
    return value.get() + "Transformed";

Here’s an example setRecordTransformerFunction() implementation:

DaVinciConfig config = new DaVinciConfig();
config.setRecordTransformerFunction((storeVersion) -> new StringRecordTransformer(storeVersion));
