1 File System Implementations Presented by: Gaurav Gupta Department of CSEE University Of Maryland Baltimore County

2 Introduction  Local File systems & Remote File Systems  Two general File systems in modern Unix System V File system, originalSystem V File system, original Berkeley fast file system, 4.2 BSD, betterBerkeley fast file system, 4.2 BSD, better  Vnode/Vfs interface supports multiple file systems.  This chapter summarizes and compares the two file systems

3 System V File System (s5fs)  Single logical disk or partition, one FS per partition  Each FS has own root, sub directories, Files, data and metadata  Disk Block = 512 * n, granularity of disk allocation for a file  Translated by disk drivers in to track sectors and cylinders B SInode listData blocks Boot areasuperblock

4  Layout: Boot area: Bootstrap codeBoot area: Bootstrap code Superblock: Attributes and metadata of file systemSuperblock: Attributes and metadata of file system Inode list: one inode/file 64 bytes, fix the size of file systemInode list: one inode/file 64 bytes, fix the size of file system Data area: files, directories and indirect blocks which hold pointers to other file data blocksData area: files, directories and indirect blocks which hold pointers to other file data blocks  Directories: File containing list of files and subdirectoriesFile containing list of files and subdirectories Fixed record of 16 bytesFixed record of 16 bytes

5 2 bytes ( 2 16 = files) inode number, 14 bytes file name2 bytes ( 2 16 = files) inode number, 14 bytes file name 0 inode number means file no longer exist 0 inode number means file no longer exist Root directory and parent have inode number equal to 2Root directory and parent have inode number equal to File1 0 Deleted file 110Subdirectory1 65File2

6  Inodes ( Index nodes): Each file has one unique inodeEach file has one unique inode Inode contains metadata of the fileInode contains metadata of the file on-disk inode and in-core inodeon-disk inode and in-core inode FieldSizeDescription di_mode2 File type, permissions di_uid2 Owner UID di_gid2 Owner GID di_size4 Size in bytes di_addr39 Array of block addresses :::

7  di_addr: File is not stored in contiguous blocks, prevents fragmentationFile is not stored in contiguous blocks, prevents fragmentation An array of block address is required, Stored in inode, prevent extra readAn array of block address is required, Stored in inode, prevent extra read Size of array depends on the size of fileSize of array depends on the size of file indirect Double indirect triple indirect

8  Superblock Metadata about File systemMetadata about File system One Superblock per File systemOne Superblock per File system Kernel reads Superblock when mounting the File systemKernel reads Superblock when mounting the File system Superblock contains following informationSuperblock contains following information  Size in blocks of the file system  Size in blocks of the inode list  Number of free blocks and inodes  Free block list (Partial)  Free inode list (Full)

9 Kernel Organization  In-Core Inodes Represented by struct inodeRepresented by struct inode All fields of on-disk inode and following extra fieldsAll fields of on-disk inode and following extra fields  vnode: contains the vnode of the file  Device ID of the partition containing the file  Inode number of the file  Flags for synchronization and cache management  Pointers to keep the inode on a free list  Pointers to keep the inode on a hash queue  Block number of last block read

10  Inode Lookup Lookuppn(), a file system independent function performs pathname parsingLookuppn(), a file system independent function performs pathname parsing When searching s5fs directory it translates to a call to s5lookup()When searching s5fs directory it translates to a call to s5lookup() s5lookup first checks directory name lookup caches5lookup first checks directory name lookup cache On miss it reads the directory one block at a timeOn miss it reads the directory one block at a time If directory contains a valid filename entry, s5lookup() obtains inode number of fileIf directory contains a valid filename entry, s5lookup() obtains inode number of file iget() is called to locate inodeiget() is called to locate inode iget() searches the appropriate hash table to get the inodeiget() searches the appropriate hash table to get the inode

11  File I/O Read and write system call acceptRead and write system call accept  File descriptor, user buffer address, count of number of byte transferred Offset if obtained from the open file objectOffset if obtained from the open file object Offset is advanced to the number of byte transferredOffset is advanced to the number of byte transferred For random I/O “lseek” is used to set the offset to desired locationFor random I/O “lseek” is used to set the offset to desired location Kernel verifies the file mode and puts an exclusive lock on the inode for serialized accessKernel verifies the file mode and puts an exclusive lock on the inode for serialized access In read s5read() translate the starting offset to logical block number in the fileIn read s5read() translate the starting offset to logical block number in the file

12  Allocating and Reclaiming Inodes Inode remains active as long as vnode has a non-zero reference countInode remains active as long as vnode has a non-zero reference count New implementations puts the inactive inode on free listNew implementations puts the inactive inode on free list Inode caching uses LRU replacement algorithm ( suboptimal)Inode caching uses LRU replacement algorithm ( suboptimal) When file is actively used, inode is pinned ( ineligible for freeing)When file is actively used, inode is pinned ( ineligible for freeing)  When file becomes inactive some pages may still be in the memory Inode is free only when no pages are present in the memoryInode is free only when no pages are present in the memory New inodes are allocated from the top of the free listNew inodes are allocated from the top of the free list

13  Analysis Simple designSimple design Single superblock can be corruptedSingle superblock can be corrupted Grouping of inode in the beginning requires long seek time between inode read and file accessGrouping of inode in the beginning requires long seek time between inode read and file access Fixed lock size wastes spaceFixed lock size wastes space Filename is limited to 14 charactersFilename is limited to 14 characters Number of inodes are limited to 65535Number of inodes are limited to 65535

14 The Berkeley Fast File System  Improves performance, reliability and functionality  Provides all functionality of s5fs, system call handling algorithms and kernel data structures  Difference in disk layout, on disk structures and free block allocation methods

15  Data layout on hard disk track0 platters track2 track1 head 0 head 1 head 2 Cylinder 0 Cylinder 1 Sector 0 Sector 1

16  Sector size is 512 bytes  Unix view of disk is linear array of blocks  Number of sectors/block = 2 n, n is small number  Device driver translates block number to logical sector number and the physical track, head and sector number  Each cylinder contains a sequential set of block numbers  Head seek time, rotation latency

17  On disk organization Disk partition comprises of set of consecutive cylinders on diskDisk partition comprises of set of consecutive cylinders on disk FFS further divides the partition into one or more cylinder groups (consecutive cylinders)FFS further divides the partition into one or more cylinder groups (consecutive cylinders) Traditional superblock is divided into two structuresTraditional superblock is divided into two structures FFS superblock contains information like number, size and location of cylinder group, block size, inodes etc.FFS superblock contains information like number, size and location of cylinder group, block size, inodes etc. Superblock does not change unless file system is rebuiltSuperblock does not change unless file system is rebuilt Every cylinder group has information about the group including free inodes, free block lists etcEvery cylinder group has information about the group including free inodes, free block lists etc Each group has a copy of superblockEach group has a copy of superblock

18  Blocks and fragments Advantage & disadvantage of block sizeAdvantage & disadvantage of block size FFS divides blocks in to fragmentsFFS divides blocks in to fragments Block size is 2 n, min = 4096, much larger then s5fs ( 512/1024 bytes)Block size is 2 n, min = 4096, much larger then s5fs ( 512/1024 bytes) Small size files fragments are usefulSmall size files fragments are useful Lower bound of fragments = 512 bytesLower bound of fragments = 512 bytes File has complete disk blocks except lastFile has complete disk blocks except last First block should be a single block not set of fragmentsFirst block should be a single block not set of fragments Occasional recopying of data incase the file grows in sizeOccasional recopying of data incase the file grows in size FFS controls this by allowing only direct block to contain fragmentsFFS controls this by allowing only direct block to contain fragments

19  Allocation Policies In s5fs free inode and block list is random except at the file system creation timeIn s5fs free inode and block list is random except at the file system creation time FFS aim to collocate related information on the disk to optimize sequential accessFFS aim to collocate related information on the disk to optimize sequential access FFS places inodes of all the files of a single directory into same cylinder group (improves commands like ls –l )FFS places inodes of all the files of a single directory into same cylinder group (improves commands like ls –l ) Create new directory in a different cylinder group from the parent ( for uniform distribution)Create new directory in a different cylinder group from the parent ( for uniform distribution)

20 Place data blocks of file in the same cylinder group as inodesPlace data blocks of file in the same cylinder group as inodes Change cylinder group when the file reaches 48KB size and again at every MBChange cylinder group when the file reaches 48KB size and again at every MB Allocate sequential blocks of a file at rotationally optimal positionsAllocate sequential blocks of a file at rotationally optimal positions  FFS Functional enhancements Long file names- 255 characters and variable directory entry lengthLong file names- 255 characters and variable directory entry length Symbolic links- Symbolic link is a file that points to another file.Symbolic links- Symbolic link is a file that points to another file.  type field of the inode identifies the file as symbolic link

21  |Analysis Read throughput increases from 29KB/s in s5fs to 221 KB/s in FFSRead throughput increases from 29KB/s in s5fs to 221 KB/s in FFS CPU utilization increases from 11% to 43%CPU utilization increases from 11% to 43% Write throughput increases from 48KB/s to 142 KB/sWrite throughput increases from 48KB/s to 142 KB/s Average wastage in data block is half block per file in s5fs and half fragment per file in FFSAverage wastage in data block is half block per file in s5fs and half fragment per file in FFS  Same when fragment size equals block size  Overhead to maintain fragments
