The Kangaroo Way to deal with Information Development on the Framework

Presentation Transcript

  1. The Kangaroo Approach to Data Movementon the Grid Douglas Thain, Jim Basney, Se-Chang Son, and Miron Livny http://www.cs.wisc.edu/condor/kangaroo

  2. “Half-Interactive” Jobson the Grid • The “Grid” is a vision of an international, highly available, robust, shared computation service. • Grid applications generally… • ..are half-interactive. • ..are brittle wrt errors. • ..have weak consistency requirements. • Can we perform on-line data access without subjecting apps to unexpected errors? App Unreliable Network

  3. The Kangaroo Approach To Data Movement • Make a third party responsible for executing each application’s I/O operations. • Use all available resources to hide latencies. • Never return an error to the application. • (Maybe tell the user or scheduler.) • Benefits: Fault tolerance, higher throughput. • Cost: Weaker consistency.

  4. App File System File System File System File System The Vision: A Data Grid K K K Data Movement System K K K K Disk

  5. Kangaroo Prototype An application may contact any node in the system and perform partial-file reads and writes. The node may then execute or buffer operations as conditions warrant. K K K App Buffer Buffer Disk

  6. User Interface • An interposition agent converts POSIX operations into the Kangaroo protocol. % vi /kangaroo/coral.cs.wisc.edu/etc/hosts % gcc -c /gsiftp/ftp.cs.wisc.edu/test.c -o /kangaroo/coral/tmp/test.o K Agent App read, write get, put Kangaroo POSIX

  7. Macrobenchmark:Image Processing • Post-processing of satellite image data: Need to compute various enhancements and produce output for each. • Read input image • For I=1 to N • Compute transformation of image • Write output image • Example: • Image size about 5 MB • Compute time about 6 sec • IO-cpu ratio about 0.9 MB/s
