1 Workload Management Status of current activity GridPP 13, Durham, 6 th July 2005

2 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Activity… Scalability testing Analysis of current middleware performance SGE integration GridCC

3 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Scalability Testing People involved: Janusz Martyniak, Luke Dikens, Barry MacEvoy, Steve McGough, David Colling

4 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Scalability Testing From EDG we knew that it was easy to build a system capable of running 5 jobs concurrently. No so easy to build one capable of running 500 jobs or 5000 jobs concurrently. The plan was to perform testing to find software bottlenecks and hot spots Feed the results back to the developers in a virtuous circle Why…

5 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Scalability Testing The methodology … Original plan was to build a testbed across 2 sites (Imperial HEP and LeSC). This was deliverable X.Y Take an engineering approach. I.e. Submit tests to the testbed and monitor how the different components respond. Metrics to be tested to evolve in complexity as the stability grew.

6 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Scalability Testing What happened… Decided to join the JRA1 testbed instead of forming our own. This gave us better access to the developers and much support on other parts of the system that we were not directly testing but which are needed to run the tests e.g. VOMs, RGMA. Also thus made a contribution to wider community. This decision has been praised by Bob Jones and Frederic Hemmer. Still decided to run two sites (as per deliverable) as this gave a better testing environment for scalability tests

7 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Scalability Testing What happenned … We were delayed by the late release of the WMS in EGEE However have had two sites in JRA1 testing since immediately after the Athens meeting. The two sites are maintained by JM and LD and they consist of: –Machines:1 WMS 1 CE 2 WNs 1 RGMA Server. 1 IO Server 1 UI Install:Manual Config:Site (mostly) Version:R1.1 –Machines:1 WMS 2 CEs (+1) 2 WNs (+1) Install: apt Config:Site Version: R1.1 (+ QF7&8) Site 1 Site 2

8 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Scalability Testing To add to these sites… SEs VOMS Second RGMA server (to complete split)

9 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Scalability Testing Actual testing… Only really started writing scalability tests a couple of weeks ago Have defined some basic metrics –Time to submit as a function of number of jobs for serial submission –Time to submit for parallel submission –Failure rates as function of active jobs –etc Use LB database and system monitoring on WMS node to reconstruct what is going on

10 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Scalability Testing So, 100 simple jobs submitted sequentially… Result preliminary Example of what we are trying to do Bypassed known problems especially cross matching Summary…

11 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Scalability Testing 28 Success 53 Proxy expired (12 hours after the jobs were submitted !) 3 Aborted due to reaching retry count 16 Ready state Summary… In this sample greatest source of failure is CondorC

12 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Scalability testing All registered in 3 minutes 100 jobs submitted sequentially

13 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Scalability Testing Greatest number <5000s (Excel binning) Long tail of retries

14 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Scalability Testing 100 jobs submitted sequentially 5 Minutes Still activity 1 hour later Can plot for individual or groups of processes

15 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Scalability Testing Future Plans… Automate testing scripts Output directed to web-pages Expand metrics as appropriate

16 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Performance of middleware We access to the job data through the LB databases, so why not have a look? People involved Gidon Moont and David Colling

17 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Performance of middleware Long tail

18 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Performance of middleware Efficiency RunTime (s) Number of entries

19 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Future plans… Keep monitoring this across different releases Low level activity Feedback into JRA2 Performance of middleware

20 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London SGE Porting People involved David McBride, Mona Aggarwal and Owen Maroney

21 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London SGE Porting LCG Integration with Sun Grid Engine (SGE) Wish to add LCG as an additional entry point for our existing SGE cluster Problem: LCG installation assumes the use of PBS as the cluster management system. Solution: replace PBS-specific components with SGE specific components.

22 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London SGE Porting PBS-specific components in LCG (That need replacing) Globus JobManager –Already have an existing alternative Globus JobManager for Sun Grid Engine to replace lcgpbs version. –Implemented in Perl, well understood. –Supports 5.x, 6.x revisions of SGE. –Currently installed, about to enter the first run of testing as part of an LCG CE installation.

23 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London SGE Porting PBS-specific Components in LCG (That need replacing) Information Reporter –Have developed first-pass attempt at an SGE information reporter. –Again, developed in Perl, small, relatively straightforward. (Existing PBS code wasn't very clear, but GLUE Schema is public.) –Installed on site CE, about to enter first run of validation and iterative improvement.

24 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London SGE Porting PBS-specific components in LCG (That need replacing) Accounting (APEL) –APEL: Accounting using PBS Event Logs. –SGE does have advanced accounting records but are not stored in the same format as PBS! –Existing Java-based tooling seems large and complex for what should be a fairly straightforward task; not obvious where changes could/should be made. –Refactored version exists in gLite, but would still require new implementation of SGE-specific backend. –Using updated gLite revision on site may well work, but would introduce manageability issues at upgrade-time. –Currently wondering whether APEL can simply be replaced with a small perl script(!) Currently looking up for documentation on the APEL/R-GMA reporting interface.

25 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London SGE Porting Community of Interest formed Code available from: Mailing list

26 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London GridCC People involved: Marko Krznaric, Janusz Martyniak, Luke Dickens, John Darlington, Steve McGough, David McBride and David Colling + Tiziana & Costas

27 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London GridCC Lot about GridCC at GridPP12 so brief update Discussions between GridCC and EGEE (Bob Jones and Frederic Hemmer) Agreed to collaborate (e.g. use EGEE CVS) GridCC relies on EGEE First release September this year Review October this year

28 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London GridCC Bits in red from UK wms activity

29 5 th July 2005 Workload Management David Colling, Imperial College London Summary Activity in 4 areas –testing, –analysis, –SGE port, –GridCC
