7 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 7 Data Flow in ATLAS

8 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 8 Storage Estimate

9 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 9 Production System Overview DQ2 Tasks requested by Physics Working Group approved Panda ProdDB submit CA,DE,ES,FR,IT, NL,TW,UK,US (NDGF coming) Clouds send jobs register files

10 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 10  PANDA = Production ANd Distributed Analysis system  Designed for analysis as well as production  Project started Aug 2005, prototype Sep 2005, production Dec 2005  Works both with OSG and EGEE middleware  A single task queue and pilots  Apache-based Central Server  Pilots retrieve jobs from the server as soon as CPU is available  low latency  Highly automated, has an integrated monitoring system, and requires low operation manpower  Integrated with ATLAS Distributed Data Management (DDM) system  Not exclusively ATLAS: has its first OSG user CHARMM Panda

11 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 11 Cloud Panda storage Tier 1 storage Tier 2s job output files job input files

12 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 12 Panda/Bamboo System Overview site A Panda server site B pilot Worker Nodes condor-g Autopilot https submit pull End-user submit job pilot ProdDB job logger http send log bamboo LRC/LFC DQ2

13 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 13 Apache + gridsite PandaDB clients Panda server  Central queue for all kinds of jobs  Assign jobs to sites (brokerage)  Setup input/output datasets  Create them when jobs are submitted  Add files to output datasets when jobs are finished  Dispatch jobs logger LRC/LFC DQ2 https pilot

14 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 14 Apache + gridsite cx_Oracle Panda server https prodDB cron Bamboo  Get jobs from prodDB to submit them to Panda  Update job status in prodDB  Assign tasks to clouds dynamically  Kill TOBEABORTED jobs A cron triggers the above procedures every 10 min A cron triggers the above procedures every 10 min

15 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 15  HTTP/S-based communication (curl+grid proxy+python)  GSI authentication via mod_gridsite  Most of communications are asynchronous  Panda server runs python threads as soon as it receives HTTP requests, and then sends responses back immediately. Threads do heavy procedures (e.g., DB access) in background  better throughput  Several are synchronous Client-Server Communication serialize (cPickle) HTTPS (x-www-form -urlencode) Client UserIF mod_python Panda Python obj mod_deflate Request Python obj deserialize (cPickle) Python obj Response

16 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 16 Data Transfer  Rely on ATLAS DDM  Panda sends requests to DDM  DDM moves files and sends notifications back to Panda  Panda and DDM work asynchronously  Dispatch input files to T2s and aggregate output files to T1  Jobs get ‘activated’ when all input files are copied, and pilots pick them up  Pilots don’t have to wait for data arrival on WNs  Data-transfer and Job-execution can run in parallel Panda submit Job DQ2 subscribe T2 for disp dataset callback get Job pilot submitter finish Job callback add files to dest datasets run job data transfer

17 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 17 Pilot and Autopilot (1/2)  Autopilot is a scheduler to submit pilots to sites via condor-g/glidein Pilot  Gatekeeper Job  Panda server  Pilots are scheduled to the site batch system and pull jobs as soon as CPUs become available Panda server  Job  Pilot  Pilot submission and Job submission are different Job = payload for pilot

18 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 18 Pilot and Autopilot (2/2)  How pilot works  Sends the several parameters to Panda server for job matching (HTTP request)  CPU speed  Available memory size on the WN  List of available ATLAS releases at the site  Retrieves an `activated’ job (HTTP response of the above request)  activated  running  Runs the job immediately because all input files should be already available at the site  Sends heartbeat every 30min  Copy output files to local SE and register them to Local Replica Catalogue

19 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 19 Production vs Analysis  Run on same infrastructures  Same software, monitoring system and facilities  No duplicated manpower for maintenance  Separate computing resources  Different queues  different CPU clusters  Production and analysis don’t have to compete with each other  Different policies for data transfers  Analysis jobs don’t trigger data-transfer  Jobs go to sites which hold the input files  For production, input files are dispatched to T2s and output files are aggregated to T1 via DDM asynchronously  Controlled traffics

26 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 26 Activities. Data Replication  Centralized and automatic (according to computing model)  Simulated data  AOD/NTUP/TAG (current data volume ~1.5 TB/week)  BNL has a complete dataset replicas  US Tier-2s are defined what fraction of data they will keep –From 30% to 100%.  Validation samples  Replicated to BNL for SW validation purposes  Critical Data replication  Database releases  replicated to BNL from CERN and then from BNL to US ATLAS T2s. Data volume is relatively small (~100MB)  Conditions data  Replicated to BNL from CERN  Cosmic data  BNL requested 100% of cosmic data.  Data replicated from CERN to BNL and to US Tier-2s  Data replication for individual groups, Universities, physicists  Dedicated Web interface is set up

27 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 27 Data Replication to Tier 2’s

28 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 28 You’ll never walk alone Weekly Throughput 2.1 GB/s out of CERN From Simone Campana

29 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 29 Subscriptions  Subscription  Request for the full replication of a dataset (or dataset version) at a given site  Requests are collected by the centralized subscription catalog  And are then served by a site of agents – the site services  Subscription on a dataset version  One time only replication  Subscription on a dataset  Replication triggered on every new version detected  Subscription closed when dataset is frozen

30 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 30 Site Services  Agent based framework  Goal: Satisfy subscriptions  Each agent serves a specific part of a request  Fetcher: fetches up new subscription from the subscription catalog  Subscription Resolver: checks if subscription is still active, new dataset versions, new files to transfer, …  Splitter: Create smaller chunks from the initial requests, identifies files requiring transfer  Replica Resolver: Selects a valid replica to use as source  Partitioner: Creates chunks of files to be submitted as a single request to the FTS  Submitter/PendingHandler: Submit/manage the FTS requests  Verifier: Check validity of file at destination  Replica Register: Registers new replica in the local replica catalog  …

31 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 31 Typical deployment  Deployment at Tier0 similar to Tier1s  LFC and FTS services at Tier1s  SRM services at every site, including Tier2s Site Services Site Services Site Services Central Catalogs

32 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 32 Interaction with the grid middleware  File Transfer Services (FTS)  One deployed per Tier0 / Tier1 (matches typical site services deployment)  Triggers the third party transfer by contacting the SRMs, needs to be constantly monitored  LCG File Catalog (LFC)  One deployed per Tier0 / Tier1 (matches typical site services deployment)  Keeps track of local file replicas at a site  Currently used as main source of replica information by the site services  Storage Resource Manager (SRM)  Once pre-staging comes into the picture

33 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 33 DDM - Current Issues and Plans  Dataset deletion  Non trivial, although critical  First implementation using a central request repository  Being integrated into the site services  Dataset consistency  Between storage and local replica catalogs  Between local replica catalogs and the central catalogs  Lot of effort put into this recently – tracker, consistency service  Prestaging of data  Currently done just before file movement  Introduces high latency when file is on tape  Messaging  More asynchronous flow (less polling)

34 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 34 ADC Operations Shifts  ATLAS Distributed Computing Operations Shifts (ADCoS)  World-wide shifts  To monitor all ATLAS distributed computing resources  To provide Quality of Service (QoS) for all data processing  Shifters receive official ATLAS service credit (OTSMoU)  Additional information  

35 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 35 Typical Shift Plan  Browse recent shift history  Check performance of all sites  File tickets for new issues  Continue interactions about old issues  Check status of current tasks  Check all central processing tasks  Monitor analysis flow (not individual tasks)  Overall data movement  File software (validation) bug reports  Check Panda, DDM health  Maintain elog of shift activities

36 May 2, 2008 Kaushik De 36 Shift Structure  Shifter on call  Two consecutive days  Monitor – escalate – follow up  Basic manual interventions (site – on/off)  Expert on call  One week duration  Global monitoring  Advice shifter on call  Major interventions (service - on/off)  Interact with other ADC operations teams  Provide feed-back to ADC development teams  Tier 1 expert on call  Very important (ex. Rod Walker, Graeme Stewart, Eric Lancon…)
