High Performance Computing Research Department

The High Performance Computing Research Department conducts research and development in mathematical modeling, algorithmic design, software implementation, and system architectures, and evaluates new and promising technologies.

ZFS – Why?

HPCRD – research new technologies seeks to optimize the performance, redundancy, and

scalability of current hardware Benefits and alternative to current filesystems (e.g. ext2,3,

ufs, reiserfs ZFS already tentatively embraced by the Unix community –

Apple, Linux Open Source – MPL Disksuite not quite a commercial/enterprise level product. I.e.

performance, redundancy, scalability Alternative, Third Party, Veritas Volume Manager

Expensive Not simple to administer

Finally, Sun offers a enterprise level filesystem Features similar to Veritas without the high cost and fully

integrated into OS, and portable.

ZFS – At a glance

Zettabyte File System 128 Bit file system - 16 billion billion times that of 64

bit file system (Huge Capacity) Pooled storage – shared bandwidth (I/O) and

capacity Increased performance over traditional volume

managers (Filesystem + VM + RAID) Transaction Operation – Copy on Write (No

Journaling) Snapshots (ro) and Clones (rw) End to End Data Integrity – Data Checksumed Administration ease (Integration of services)

Page 5: Zfs Presentation

C O M P U T A T I O N A L R E S E A R C H D I V I S I O N

ZFS is like “Virtual Memory”

Page 6: Zfs Presentation

C O M P U T A T I O N A L R E S E A R C H D I V I S I O N

ZFS – VM similarity

Page 7: Zfs Presentation

C O M P U T A T I O N A L R E S E A R C H D I V I S I O N

ZFS – Volumes and Pool Storage

Traditional Volumes

ZFS Pool Storage

-One to one ratio between FS to Volume

-Pool Storage expand/shrink automatically

-Shared Bandwidth (I/O)

-Many FS to Storage Pool ratio

Page 8: Zfs Presentation

C O M P U T A T I O N A L R E S E A R C H D I V I S I O N

ZFS – is like a “merged FS w/ RAID/Volume manager”

Page 9: Zfs Presentation

C O M P U T A T I O N A L R E S E A R C H D I V I S I O N

ZFS – is like an attached “NAS”

Think of having a NAS with its integrated filesystem, RAID, and other features attached locally, directly to VFS instead of through the network.

Page 10: Zfs Presentation

C O M P U T A T I O N A L R E S E A R C H D I V I S I O N

ZFS – “NAS” like elaborated

Most similar to NAS w/o the network not an external storage and not quite a NAS box

Similar to NetApp in features (software based instead of hardware based) Integrated RAID/VM (Pooled Storage) derivative of W—A—F—L (Write Anywhere File Layout)

• Copy on Write• no need for fsck/journaling - always consistent on

disk Snapshots and Clones

• very fast backups• changes are kept track, rather than copy entire

tree Central Administration

Page 11: Zfs Presentation

C O M P U T A T I O N A L R E S E A R C H D I V I S I O N

ZFS - Copy on Write (COW)

Page 12: Zfs Presentation

C O M P U T A T I O N A L R E S E A R C H D I V I S I O N

ZFS - Central Administration

Pool and filesystem created through zfs administration - no need for format/fdisk and newfs/mkfs

Automatic mounts - no need to manually enter in /etc/vfstab or use “mount” command

Checksum enabled/disabled through zfs administration Quotas centralized in zfs administration Compression enabled/disabled in zfs administration NFS shared through zfs administration Snapshots and clones through zfs administration Backup (Full and Incremental snapshots) through zfs

administration

Page 13: Zfs Presentation

C O M P U T A T I O N A L R E S E A R C H D I V I S I O N

ZFS - Other notable features

All data checksumed Self Healing (mirror) Disk Scrubbing

Object Based Transactions WAFL - data can be written on any location on disk Not block by block changes, but aggregate changes to

objects (transaction group) ZFS Intent Log (ZIL)

RAIDZ Variable RAID stripe width Dynamic Stripping (add/subtract drives) All writes are full-stripe

Portability - Filesystem transfer between SPARC and x86

Page 14: Zfs Presentation

C O M P U T A T I O N A L R E S E A R C H D I V I S I O N

ZFS - Data checksum

Patterned off Merkle tree - each level of data to validate all things below it Similar to ECC memory Isolation of data and checksum

Page 15: Zfs Presentation

C O M P U T A T I O N A L R E S E A R C H D I V I S I O N

ZFS - ZIL

All system calls are logged as transaction records by ZIL

Records contain sufficient information to replay after crash

Logs are variable size, depending on structure ZIL writes

Small writes - data written as part of log Large writes - data written to disk and pointer to

data written to log During mount time, ZFS checks for ZIL log - if exists,

system probably crashed ZIL allows performance gains especially for

databases

Page 16: Zfs Presentation

C O M P U T A T I O N A L R E S E A R C H D I V I S I O N

ZFS - RAIDZ

Dynamic Stripe Width Data and parity can be distributed across varying

number of drives, depending on size All writes are full-stripe writes

No need to read-modify-read • RAID 5 penalty -read old data, corresponding parity,

calculate new parity, and write new data and new parity Dynamic Stripping

Data automatically redistributed as drives are subtracted and added

Allows the usage for cheap disk for both data integrity, performance, and redundancy

Page 17: Zfs Presentation

C O M P U T A T I O N A L R E S E A R C H D I V I S I O N

ZFS - Truths (no marketing)

Not entirely new, but a software version of something existing on hardware with some unique features

RAIDZ - not really a RAID: RAID and filesystem are merged. (But this allows for usage of cheap drives) Jeff Bonwick - “You have to traverse the

filesystem metadata to determine the RAIDZ geometry”• Darcy - “True RAID levels don’t require knowledge of

higher-level applications”

Page 18: Zfs Presentation

ZFS - Experimental Results

Hardware - Ultra 2, with external RAID pack. Tested

UFS on Disksuite ZFS .

What was tested? Performance: RAID 5 on Disksuite vs. RAIDZ Crash recovery Creating 400M files

• UFS on Disksuite –RAID 5 (4 drives)— Wed Jun 14 12:04:16 PDT 2006— Wed Jun 14 19:37:14 PDT 2006

• ZFS – RAIDZ (4 drives)— Mon Jun 19 14:16:29 PDT 2006— Mon Jun 19 15:56:59 PDT 2006

Redundancy with removal of drive - simulate losing a drive

ZFS – Summary/Conclusions

Large Performance gain over UFS Enterprise level Filesystem/Volume/RAID product

Software based product using inexpensive/cheap disks

Performance from: shared I/O and storage Ease of administration – Creation, Snapshots &

Clones, Compression, Sharing…etc End to end data integrity RAIDz Sun’s integration into Solaris and portability between

platforms Free

Page 26: Zfs Presentation

C O M P U T A T I O N A L R E S E A R C H D I V I S I O N

ZFS - Upcoming features

Will be released with new version of Solaris 10 Support for hot spares Encryption Secure deletion Perhaps NVRAM for ZIL Speculation MAC – OS X Speculation and possibilities for Linux

Port has begun by Ricardo Correia to FUSE/Linux as part of Google SoC.

Runs as a module in user space. Sun’s vested interest in Linux and Opterons may also push

the port to Linux.
