1 17 March 2008Standards for Interoperable Grids 1 Job Execution Standards for Interoperable Grids: Experience from NextGRID and OMII-Europe Clive Davenhall National e-Science Centre, University of Edinburgh

2 Standards for Interoperable Grids2 Job Execution: Introduction Running jobs on a Grid. Topics: Naming and addressing (brief introduction; needed by this talk and the next) OGSA-EMS OGSA-BES JSDL

3 Standards for Interoperable Grids3 NextGRID Naming and Addressing NextGRID uses WS-Addressing and WS-Naming. WS-Addressing W3C standard. Way of addressing components, services, data items etc. De facto standard in the Web services community. WS-Naming OGF Standard. Extends WS-Addressing. By adding optional naming elements. NextGRID Has some additional extensions and restrictions.

5 Standards for Interoperable Grids5 OGSA-EMS EMS: Execution Management Services An architecture for initiating, managing and controlling the execution of activities or units of work. Units of work might be: OGSA applications. Legacy applications running in an OGSA harness. An architecture not a standard So in the OGSA informational rather than recommendation track.

6 Standards for Interoperable Grids6 Role and Status of OGSA-EMS OGSA uses EMS to identify and position standards that address part of the activity management problem. Tool or mechanism for identifying necessary standards and their interrelations. This effort continues. Not all the necessary standards are yet in place. Initial focus on fundamental job execution. Where possible OGSA adopts or adapts existing standards, Rather than inventing new ones ab initio.

7 Standards for Interoperable Grids7 Problems addressed by EMS Finding possible locations where activities can execute. Selecting the execution location for an activity. Preparing for execution. Initiating the execution. Etc…

10 Standards for Interoperable Grids10 Job Execution Topics: Naming and addressing OGSA-EMS OGSA-BES JSDL

11 Standards for Interoperable Grids11 OGSA-BES BES: Basic Execution Service Defines Web service interfaces for creating, monitoring and controlling computational entities: Units of work. Activities. Individual activities to be performed are defined in JSDL. Activities execute on a suitable computational resource. Agnostic about the underlying environment on which the activity executes. BES interface is extensible.

12 Standards for Interoperable Grids12 BES Port-types BES-Management Allows clients to monitor and control a BES instance. Intended for system administrators. BES-Factory Allows clients to create, monitor and control sets of activities. BES-Activity Allows clients to create, monitor and control individual activities.

13 Standards for Interoperable Grids13 Extensibility State Model A set of defined states and the transitions between them. BES defines a basic mode and allows extensions. Information Model Allows clients to examine aspects of a BES instance and its applications. Allows mandatory, optional and user-defined attributes. Resource Model Specifies basic operations, but allows additional ones. Specifically allows various OGSA interaction modes.

15 Standards for Interoperable Grids15 Basic State Model Allows extensibility by specialisation. Pending Finished Failed Running Terminated System error/failure event Request to terminate activity Activity terminates successfully

21 Standards for Interoperable Grids21 Job Execution Topics: Naming and addressing OGSA-EMS OGSA-BES JSDL

22 Standards for Interoperable Grids22 JSDL JSDL: Job Submission Description Language. Not an OGSA standard; but adopted by OGSA. Abstract description of the requirements for a job, activity or unit of work. Can contain: Generic job identification information. Application description. Resource requirements (main focus is on computational jobs). Description of any data files required. Describes what the job is to do, not how to do it.

23 Standards for Interoperable Grids23 JSDL and BES JSDL is an abstract description of a job or activity. It deliberately does not define a job submission interface. And it is therefore independent of any submission interface. BES provides a submission interface. BES Container JSDL

24 Standards for Interoperable Grids24 Extensions An extension for applications executing on a POSIX-compliant operating system is included in the basic specification. Two additional extensions have subsequently been defined: JSDL HPC (High Performance Computing) extension. JSDL SPMD (Single Program Multiple Data) extension. Additional extensions are anticipated.

30 Standards for Interoperable Grids30 NextGRID Recommendations BES Reiterates that extensions to WS-Naming are permitted, specifically the ones required by NextGRID naming. JSDL Defines extensions to support data-staging which is compatible with NextGRID data transfer.
