3 Enabling Grids for E-sciencE EGEE-III INFSO-RI gLite IPv6 compliance activities and their outcome EGEE SA2 IPv6 task and collaborations 3

4 Enabling Grids for E-sciencE EGEE-III INFSO-RI EGEE SA2 started working on the problem of the IPv6 compliance of gLite in september 2006 – during EGEE II Initial emphasis has been on defining a methodology –Gathering and implementing required tools –Defining an operational workflow Given its close relationship to the management of the gLite release, ETICS has been involved in a fruitful collaboration on this issue (since February 07) (initially also EuChinaGRID). It was immediately realized that IPv6 evangelization within the EGEE community played a key role to foster the transition to IPv6 –IPv6 network programming tutorials for gLite developers have been organized SA2 IPv6 workplan for EGEE III defined in May 08 a (very little) bit of history

5 Enabling Grids for E-sciencE EGEE-III INFSO-RI Achievements so far (1/4) We performed prototypal functionality (manual) tests of the Workload Management System and the BDII in IPv6. IPv4 turned off. IPv6 on. –Results showed immediately IPv6 was breaking provided functionality Set up an ETICS pilot project called glite_IPv6 to exploit the automation of IPv6 functionality testing –We followed the ETICS developments on multi-nodes testing and gLite modules deployment tests –Included IPv6 resources in the ETICS metronome pool –Thanks to the ETICS team, we got IPv6 match-making available to drive jobs to IPv6 nodes in the Web Application We have developed an IPv6 compliant version of the BDII 5

6 Enabling Grids for E-sciencE EGEE-III INFSO-RI Achievements so far (2/4) Distributed gLite IPv6 (IPv6/IPv4/Dual Stack) testbed in place –2 sites (UREC CNRS Paris, GARR Rome) –many relevant deployment modules installed and configured: VOMS, UI, WMS, lcg-CE, CREAM, WNs, DPM-SE, LFC, PX, BDII, LB –gL 3.1 on SLC 4.6/4.7 nodes, Dual Stack –Protocol conversion NAT-PT available for specific C-S studies Carried out first comprehensive analysis of the gLite source code in september 08 –Using the IPv6 metric (IPv6 code checker) in ETICS –Around 110 bugs on non-compliant function calls and data structures in the code posted

7 Enabling Grids for E-sciencE EGEE-III INFSO-RI Achievements so far (3/4) 7 We performed an overall analysis of all gLite external dependencies to assess their level of IPv6 compliance –Showing that there is a very limited number of non compliant ones We have developed a new software package called IPv6 CARE acting as an IPv6 checker –Its a very general purpose tool to assess IPv6 compilance –Its publicly available on sourceforge https://sourceforge.net/projects/ipv6-care –Requires running services on the nodes IPv6 CARE

8 Enabling Grids for E-sciencE EGEE-III INFSO-RI Achievements so far (4/4) Performed specific in deep studies on the IPv6 compliance of relevant packages to the gLite community (see list later on) Written a general document on how to check the IPv6 compliance of a socket server Written guide for IPv6 compliant network programming (in C/C++,Java, Perl, Python) Organized 2 general tutorial on IPv6 for the gLite developers community –Rome Jan –Prague Nov

9 Enabling Grids for E-sciencE EGEE-III INFSO-RI Example:The IPv6 static code checker What is it? –A bash script seeking for evident non IPv6 compliant patterns in the source code How to use it? –Using ETICS build system: You can check the IPv6 metric on the ETICS UI (see next slides) You can submit an IPv6 check job, for example on the org.glite.data.transfer-fts gLite component: etics-submit build -p ipv6check="True \ org.glite.data.transfer-fts –Optionally the code checker can also be used by hand Remark: –It is not 100% efficient but it provides clear hints to be verified about non-IPv6 compliance 9

12 Enabling Grids for E-sciencE EGEE-III INFSO-RI Other SA2 provided tools and documents Reference documents on IPv6 for gLite developers: (all on SA2 EDMS or Wiki page) –IPv6 Programming methods: Guide to IPv6 compliant programming in C/C++, Java, Python and Perl: Guide to IPv6 compliant programming in C/C++, Java, Python and Perl Provides a sample TCP client and server for each programming language Explains advantages/drawbacks/limitations of each language regarding IPv6 –IPv6 Testing methods: How to make sure the IPv6 behavior of your application is as expected –IPv6 Tests reports: Assessment of the current status of the gLite external packages overall Selected IPv6 compliance studies for specific packages: gSOAP, Axis / Axis2, Boost:asio, gridFTP, PythonZSI, PerlSOAPLite gSOAPAxisAxis2 Boost:asiogridFTP PythonZSIPerlSOAPLite Assessment of the IPv6 compliance of gLite components: DPM, LFC Provisioning of specific IPv6 introductory tutorials for gLite developers In collaboration with ETICS: –IPv6 resources inside the metronome pool –A whole dedicated ETICS project for IPv6 studies 12

13 Enabling Grids for E-sciencE EGEE-III INFSO-RI Example of SA2-developed tool: Assessing IPv6 compliance with IPv6 CARE(*) (*) IPv6 Compliance Automatic Runtime Experiment 13

14 Enabling Grids for E-sciencE EGEE-III INFSO-RI Usage example Usage example: we want to test the program called nc –We run the program as usual except that we prefix the command by ipv6_care check: –The standard behavior of nc is not affected (the program works as it should). –The diagnosis (network function calls log file, non-IPv6 compliant calls detected, etc.) can be reviewed in the mentioned directory. 14 $ ipv6_care check nc 80 ^C IPv6 diagnosis for 'nc 80' was generated in: /tmp/ipv6_diagnosis/nc/by_pid/pid_ $

Preloaded libipv6_care.so library gethostbyname(…) { Diagnose problem in /tmp/ipv6_diagnosis/ /… Call RTLD_NEXT gethostbyname() }... LD_PRELOAD=/path/to/libipv6_care.so

16 Enabling Grids for E-sciencE EGEE-III INFSO-RI Advantages / Drawbacks Advantages: –It works with all non-static programs –It does not affect the standard behavior of the program –It does not warn about parts of code which are actually not executed Drawbacks: –IPv6 CARE only detect non-IPv6-compliant function calls. There may be other (less common) kinds of non-IPv6 compliance problems which will not be detected. 16
