1 G ö khan Ü nel / CHEP Interlaken ATLAS 1 Performance of the ATLAS DAQ DataFlow system Introduction/Generalities –Presentation of the ATLAS DAQ components Functionality & Performance Measurements –Prototype Setup –Event Building, ROI collection, Combined systems –At2sim: discrete data Simulation Conclusions –From Prototype setup & simulations Outlook N Gökhan Ünel on behalf of the ATLAS TDAQ Group

2 G ö khan Ü nel / CHEP Interlaken ATLAS 2 Generalities : ATLAS DAQ Level1(L1) rate: 75 kHz min, upgradeable to 100 kHz Level2(L2) rate per ROS : 20 kHz ; L2 time budget per event: 10 ms EventBuilding(EB) rate : kHz for 1.5  2 MByte events Recording rate: 200 Hz for 1.5  2 MByte events SFIL2PU L2SV DFM pROS ROS ROI data (100kHz) Event data (100kHz) L2 decision To EventFilter (3kHz) ROI data Event Clear Assign event Request data L2 details L2 decision End of event

3 G ö khan Ü nel / CHEP Interlaken ATLAS 3 Matching requirements –DataFlowManager(DFM), L2SuperVisor(L2SV): previous work (TDR) has shown currently available hardware can match the requirements. –ReadOutSystem(ROS), SubFarmInput (SFI): Latest studies will be presented in this talk –L2ProcessingUnit (L2PU): Since the physics algorithms for event selection are not finalized, only time to fetch fragments from ROS will be compared to computation budget. –Networking: Discrete event simulation tool will be used to scale from prototype setup up to final ATLAS size.

4 G ö khan Ü nel / CHEP Interlaken ATLAS 4 EB / L2 Setups EB: up to 16SFIs Up to 24 ROSs L2: up to 14L2PUs up to 6 L2SVs up to 8 ROSs FastIron – 64 ports T6 – 31 ports Few FAST ROS

5 G ö khan Ü nel / CHEP Interlaken ATLAS 5 EventBuilding Rate Solid lines: ROS=2GHz Dashed line: ROS=3GHz 8.55 kHzx12.4k=106MB/s  ROS cpu limit Small & Large systems have the same max EB rate  no penalty as event size grows Can run 24 ROS vs 16 SFI EB system stably Faster ROS does a better job (we hit the io limit) 110MB/s per SFI  NIC limit ROS : 12 emulated input channels, 1kB /channel SFI : No output to EF More ROS = Bigger Events ! 9.66 kHzx12.4 k = 120MB/s  ROS NIC limit

6 G ö khan Ü nel / CHEP Interlaken ATLAS 6 Scaling in EB throughput EB throughput scales linearly with Nb of SFIs No show-stoppers Possible to estimate the rate of any EB system in the prototype setup

7 G ö khan Ü nel / CHEP Interlaken ATLAS 7 Determining Number of SFIs Requirement: kHz of EB for % bandwidth usage per SFI 60% bw 90% bw Typical ATLAS event size At typical event size of 1.5 Mb, 60 SFIs (2.4 GHz SMP) are enough Output to EF + extra SFIs for safety margin should be considered  100 SFIs (2.4 GHz SMP) would easily handle kHz 1.5-2MB events

8 G ö khan Ü nel / CHEP Interlaken ATLAS 8 ROS cpu limited Level2 Rate dummy algorithms in L2PUs 6 concurrent ROI collection per L2PU Linear scaling when ROS is not the limiting factor

9 G ö khan Ü nel / CHEP Interlaken ATLAS 9 L2 Time budget If 500 L2PU 3 GHz SMP is used –10 ms /event at 100 kHz L1 rate for L2 decision –Worst case of 16 ROLs all from different ROS < 0.8ms Requirement: 10 ms event for L2 decision, ROI fetch time << 10ms Longest ROI fetch: ROL

10 G ö khan Ü nel / CHEP Interlaken ATLAS 10 Foundry EI Foundry FastIron 800 SFI(O) SFI01 ROS19L2P01 L2P14 ….. L2SV06 … L2SV01 pROSDFM ROS01 ROS18 … … ROS24 … … Combined setups: EB + L2 BATM T6

11 G ö khan Ü nel / CHEP Interlaken ATLAS 11 Small system:3ROS x 2SFI x..12 L2PU Since the Max rates for EB and L2 are known,  Use the plateau region to calculate the ROS cpu utilization for “clear” task Plateau: ROS cpu limit

12 G ö khan Ü nel / CHEP Interlaken ATLAS 12 Analysis for ROS cpu CPU= R EB × CPU EB + R L2 × CPU L2 + R L1 × CPU Cl  CPU EB is the CPU power spend by the ROS on 1 kHz of Event Building  CPU L2 is the CPU power spend by the ROS on 1 kHz of Level 2 ROI  CPU Cl is the CPU power spend by the ROS on 1 kHz of Event Clears Requirement: 100 kHz L1, 20 kHz L2, kHz EB + including clears** using 2 NICs simultaneously 2GHz ROS needs: 20x x x0.0074= 2.6 > 2.0  3GHz ROS needs: 20x x x0.0083= 2.55 < 3.06 
