IT At the LHC — Managing a Petabyte of Data Per Second

Soulskill posted more than 2 years ago | from the take-a-drink-from-the-science-firehose dept.

Science 248

schliz writes "iTnews in Australia has published an interview with CERN's deputy head of IT, David Foster, who explains what last month's discovery of a 'particle consistent with the Higgs Boson' means for the organization's IT department, why it needs a second 'Tier Zero' data center, and how it is using grid computing and the cloud. Quoting: 'If you were to digitize all the information from a collision in a detector, it’s about a petabyte a second or a million gigabytes per second. There is a lot of filtering of the data that occurs within the 25 nanoseconds between each bunch crossing (of protons). Each experiment operates their own trigger farm – each consisting of several thousand machines – that conduct real-time electronics within the LHC. These trigger farms decide, for example, was this set of collisions interesting? Do I keep this data or not? The non-interesting event data is discarded, the interesting events go through a second filter or trigger farm of a few thousand more computers, also on-site at the experiment. [These computers] have a bit more time to do some initial reconstruction – looking at the data to decide if it’s interesting. Out of all of this comes a data stream of some few hundred megabytes to 1Gb per second that actually gets recorded in the CERN data center, the facility we call "Tier Zero."'"

udachny (2454394) | more than 2 years ago | (#40867313)

When the LHC is working, there are about 600 million collisions per second. But we only record here about one in 10^13 (ten trillion).

If you were to digitize all the information from a collision in a detector, itâ(TM)s about a petabyte a second or a million gigabytes per second.

600,000,000 collisions per second

they are recording 1 in 10,000,000,000,000 collisions, or 1 trillion over 600 million, which is 16666.7 seconds, or 1 in 277.8 minutes or 1 in 4.6 hours.

I wonder how they came up with this ratio? Is this just a strange numerological coincidence that this ratio (16666.7) is the same as the number of dollars that every person in USA now owes additionally since Obama came to office? 5000,000,000,000 / 300,000,000 (5 Trillion USD added to the debt over 300 million people).

Obviously this is not a coincidence, it's a plot!

VMWare is pretty widely recognized as the king of virtualization-- at least so long as you arent concerned with money. Its overhead is far far smaller than the others especially when dealing with huge numbers of connections, and it simply has more features than its competitors.

Of course, that assumes you're willing to pony up for vRAM entitlements and Enterprise Plus.

VMWare is pretty widely recognized as the king of virtualization-- at least so long as you arent concerned with money. Its overhead is far far smaller than the others especially when dealing with huge numbers of connections, and it simply has more features than its competitors.

Which doesn't mean those features are implemented well.

Not so long ago, I built an automated QA platform on top of Qumranet's KVM. Partway through the project, my employer was bought by Dell, a VMware licensee. As such, we ended up putting software through automated testing on VMware, manual testing on Xen (legacy environment, pre-acquisition), and deployment to a mix of real hardware and VMware.

In terms of accurate hardware implementation, KVM kicked the crap out of what VMware (ESX) shipped with at the time. We had software break because VMware didn't implement some very common SCSI mode pages (which the real hardware and QEMU both did), we had software break because of funkiness in their PXE implementation, and we otherwise just plain had software *break*. I sometimes hit a bug in the QEMU layer KVM uses for hardware emulation, but when those happened, I could fix it myself half the time, and get good support from the dev team and mailing list otherwise. With VMware, I just had to wait and hope that they'd eventually get around to it in some future release.

"King of virtualization"? Bah.

Re:You mean... (1)

LordLimecat (1103839) | more than 2 years ago | (#40869351)

King of virtualization when it comes to things like "supports live migration of a VM's execution state and/or permenant storage", or "stability and speed of the networking layer".

I cant speak to KVM as my experience is limited to VMware, and some HyperV and XenServer testing. But just doing a check from RHEV's own fact sheet [redhat.com] , there are a number of things that are missing that are quite useful:
*Storage live migration
*Hot add RAM, CPU
*Hot add NICs, disk (note that RHEV has it wrong-- this does not require anything more than the free hypervisor, NOT enterprise plus as they claim)
*Live VM Snapshots (not really clear how RHEV doesnt have this, even Virtualbox has this)

Those are all pretty core features-- to my mind, ESPECIALLY the disk and NIC hot add. There are a lot of times that it is an absolute blessing to be able to roll out a new VLAN on the network and to just hot-add a NIC to the firewall VM on that VLAN, and your network suffers no outage. With disk, its awfully nice to be able to add a USB disk to the VM without having to reboot the entire thing (again, how does HyperV and RHEV not have this?).

Re:You mean... (1)

StuartHankins (1020819) | more than 2 years ago | (#40870217)

VMWare is nice, let's get that out of the way. We have a mix of ESXi and RHEV and are deciding which to use for everything (assuming moving up to paid VSphere is the VMWare option). The fact that RHEV was cheaper, much much better looking, quicker to setup, and easier to use than KVM under RHEL made the decision to migrate from RHEL-based KVM to RHEV fairly easy.

RHEV is getting there, still lacking some features and still rough around the edges. For instance:
  • Right now you can't have a VM with one disk on one storage group and another disk on a different storage group (we use this for bulk SAN storage vs fast SAN storage). KVM on RHEL does that just fine; just mount the SAN presentation and place the appropriate disk on the appropriate mount and you're good to go.
  • There are too many things which require the command line to either set up or clean up.
  • ISOs cannot be uploaded into folders and that's an issue with us since we have a lot of ISOs. You also have to use a command-line tool to upload them rather than a nice GUI tool like VMWare has. And there's no way to remove items without manually diving into the filesystem to remove ISOs.
  • They've already fixed the "requires IE" part of the browser for most tasks, however I couldn't get console view to work under Firefox for either SPICE or VLC VMs without having a bootable, running VM running those services... and the only time I need console view is when things are BROKEN...
  • Reliance on NFS as "the" VM import / export option is ugly.
  • VMs created in KVM using virtio drivers won't use those virtio drivers in RHEV unless they're on a very short list managed by Red Hat. Only RHEL and Windows are there -- no Fedora for instance, sorry! That stinks.

Snapshots are a sore point but I've heard the next version out around this December will fix it and give us a truly live backup option. Most of the other issues you mentioned (hot-add of resources) will hopefully be part of the new version. Dunno yet if that means "total fix" but I've got my fingers crossed. Hey, it's better than KVM under RHEL...

Re:You mean... (1)

LordLimecat (1103839) | more than 2 years ago | (#40873799)

ESX's cost is a bit of a PITA-- theres essentials plus, but of course that lacks DRS; and theres the free version which truly is nice for a single-server solution... but there are a lot of good contenders out there for less.

Im not gonna say that the others are garbage; I took a peek at Xen and really like that they dont gouge you to death for basic things like "can manage several servers at once". Im just saying that from my experience, as well as from listening to others in the recent ArsTechnica discussion on virtualization, it really sounds like VMware is still on top-- as long as you can pay.

Disclaimer: I just got my VCP and regularly do a lot of work with ESXi.

I can't speak to RHEV -- I ran on bare KVM. RHEV eliminated any feature from KVM that Red Hat didn't consider rock-solid enterprise-ready, effectively paring it down to the featureset they were willing to thoroughly test on all supported hardware.

All four of the items you listed were present and usable in upstream KVM back when I was working with it years ago, except for storage migration (which had just been implemented and was still at a place where I wanted to see other folks using it before I wanted to trust it myself... plus, already had shared storage anyhow and didn't need it).

Ooooh, seven MILLION rows of data!

At the risk of having APK follow me around for the next week (wait, better check that post AC box), here's the real secret to uptime:

Redundancy, Maintenance, Failover. In that order.

It doesn't matter what OS you use or how big your data is, if you work carefully (don't pull the wrong cable or drive) and follow The Secret, you can have 100% uptime.

1) Redundancy: redundant everything. Anything you have one of, is automatically the weakest link. You cannot replace it without shutting down, it cannot fail over to something else.

2) Maintenance: don't wait for your servers to fail, establish a lifecycle and replace equipment on schedule rather than crossing your fingers and hoping your 10-year-old hard drives will work another day. This is especially important with RAID: whatever old age or environmental issue caused the first drive to fail will almost certainly cause the rest of the drives (which likely all came from one batch) to fail right after. Rotate in new drives, one at a time, before the old ones fail.

3) Failover: Your best maintenance efforts will eventually fail. Detecting failure and dealing with it quickly is the difference between downtime and a page load slightly delayed while the backup server's arp poisoning sets in.

How can I follow an ac troll like you? (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#40868627)

Clue: Those systems use all of that (especially redundancy for said 99.999% "fabled 5-9's" uptime), and IF you *think* it can't be "scaled upwards" OS + Software-wise?? Think again!

"Nuff said", as the saying goes...

Especially since of what I noted in Windows Compute Cluster Edition Server (and in the case of business, SQLServer can handle THAT much too) & especially if you distribute the data across many systems with a good solid programmatic algorithm/engine...

Plus, I've actually done that kind of work (both database, OS, & programmatic architecture as well as inputs into the hardware design required with network topology too), & for some of the companies noted in my last post, using Borland Delphi &/or Microsoft Visual C++ as the language used (for performance we went with non-interpreted languages & either Oracle OR SQLServer)!

So - have you done the same? Somehow, I doubt it...

That's a lot of ranting, APK, but even if satisfactory scalability, redundancy, uptime, and IOPS can be achieved with a Windows/MS-SQL/Hyper-V setup, it still costs a boatload of cash more than the alternative, in terms of hardware, software, and TCO, given equivalent administrative personnel.

Just because a handful of large organizations happen to run a MS configuration successfully doesn't mean that it's the best, or even a desirable configuration.

PUTTING WORDS IN MY MOUTH I NEVER STATED AGAIN? Look, I know based on the "transactions vs. rows" blunder of yours above, you don't read well... however, this "troll tactic" is a bigger "low" for you now.

Plus, 367++ companies (and educational institutions) using Windows is pretty good (though not ALL are high tpm or big data (purely relative term)).

QUESTION: (Answer it YES or NO) Did I even ONCE say "MS IS ALWAY BEST" as to what you're insinuating here?

(Answer that... & I want a quote of my words on that note, and don't even *try* impersonate me, another ac stalker troll tactic, because I want the post to predate this one).

WELL, @ least I can read & know it wasn't 7 million ROWS vs. what I put down in TRANSACTIONS, lol ( please - learn to READ!)

Especially again considering that even 7 million rows on 1 table will be added onto via JOINS (multiples make it even worse, especially "nested ones", to be avoided if possible) with key fields in other tables/devices in the software end of things @ the DB & programmatic level for processing (stuff you have no clue in apparently, since you avoided a question I asked of you on that account).

1st: You "blew it" here badly too -> http://science.slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=3024445&cid=40868839 [slashdot.org] and you omitted power redundancy in YOUR rant, and see subject-line above, lol!

Secondly?

"That's a lot of ranting, APK," - by Anonymous Coward on Friday August 03, @11:55AM (#40868921)

Take a look @ YOUR posts, for Pete's sake, lol!

(Your "rant" made NO point, because all of what you stated in the high tpm examples I cited with 99.999% uptime using "all of the above" in what you noted, and that you omitted in power redundancy too, as well as specifics on programmatic design)

Which, as I said, you apparently have NO DIRECT EXPERIENCE IN apparently, with "BIG DATA" & i have... for decades now in fact (with one design type/paradigm or another over decades in information systems...).

I suggest you overcome your OCD rage in ac stalking me, take your meds or do your shock therapy (lol, whatever), & get out your "hooked on phonics" remedial reading tools and USE them... for YOUR OWN GOOD!

FOR YOUR REFERENCE (I understand you probably have ADD/ADHD or OCD etc./et al, so I'll post it again):

XEROX: Managing 7++ million transactions a day for office devices for its customers using Windows Server 2003 + SQLServer 2005 64-bit with 99.999% uptime!

(Plus, this is about TRANSACTION PROCESSING & "uptime", and the ONLY OTHER EXAMPLE that noted "7" as far as dataset size was a shipping company, but again - it's about TRANSACTIONS & processing them over BIG data... & that would be a lot more than you noted!)

---

1.) Tried putting words in my mouth I never stated - that I said "MS IS BEST/ONLY WAY" etc./et al

2.) YOU blew it on rows vs. transactions

3.) Redundancy in power supplies

4.) The fact MS has clustering OS versions & DB engines that handle it also

These posts have opened my eyes, as I never before realised the devious threat of BIG KEYBOARD. They endlessly troll the long winded AC into applying excessive wear and tear on his keyboard, forcing him to purchase replacement after replacement, as even the fabled model M could not withstand such a barrage. While I applaud him single handily holding up the entire keyboard industry through keyboard consumption in these down times, we must remember he is still a victim in the end. Unfortunately, the only recourse may be to join them instead of fighting them, by endorsing a particular brand and being a spokesman demonstrating their keyboards' resilience.

I'll never forget the evils of BIG KEYBOARD now, because I refuse to accept the alternative explanation: a voyeuristic keyboard sadist.

Then stalking and harassing\trolling apk by ac posts, then downmodding him wrongly. Slashdot's full of trolls like yourself, and it's funny to watch him shoot you all down endlessly. You must be masochists.

If you think the truth of such facts have any relevance to the post you just replied to, that shows a fundamental naivety far beyond any mistake about databases. While one or more other ACs may fail to understand databases, you seem to repetitively fail to basic reading and social comprehension.

And remember, 1+1=2, it's a fact. These universities [wikipedia.org] all agree. Unless you can disprove this, since it is a fact, it means this post wins and you lose. If you can't disprove such a fact, then you must be a troll (although quite inefficient, usually the trick is to make other people waste more time than you).

You must be in need of medication, as no sane person would be so obsessed about stalking apk. Only a fool missing his medication would continue to deny facts in the face of such a superior opponent.

Until you disproved the facts http://science.slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=3024445&cid=40867985 [slashdot.org] , it will be your posts that lose. Only a loser would fake being knowledgeable about databases for attention.

Have you ever consider what it would look like to someone who replies to one of your comments for the first time? They might give some polite, or at least terse, constructive criticism, which you do get from time to time. But then you go off about how they are just a sock-puppet, how they put words in your mouth, and about how important facts are. To them it is a pretty obvious fact they were not the other person you claim, that you are putting words in their mouth. In the rare case you get someone to actually engage in the posts you put so much time into, you thoroughly demonstrate to them why others question your sanity, why people avoid or mod you down on sight. You might as well start arguing with yourself if you don't care about the impact of your responses (assuming you don't already, wouldn't be surprising at this point).

In my estimation having worked with BIG data? (-1)

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#40867945)

You'd absolutely HAVE to "bust up" that much data across tons of computers with massively FAST interconnecting network fabric, if not the fastest CPU's + disks there is (the disk part can be overcome though somewhat by using memory mapped data rather than diskbound files, but if you're stuck with the latter and have to maintain state, SSD's can help on latency and access time).

You'd have to bust it apart though to do it as fast as the are, so it makes sense.

That so much data every second that there probably isn't a SINGLE machine in existence that could handle the load.

One way to beat large file size processing time (I've done a lot of that which dealt in string processing which is very "expensive" on CPU cycles & time alone) is to break single HUGE files into many smaller ones and process them individually on different systems and "stitch" the result together once done doing whatever it is that needed to be done to the initial "large lump sum" of data.

* Amazing data processing rate though... "Color me impressed"!

or 252,460,800,000,000,000,000,000 if you prefer counting zeros

even in stereo it'd only be 5e23.

Power limitations (3, Informative)

onyxruby (118189) | more than 2 years ago | (#40868307)

Did a bunch of work with some stock exchanges a few years back. It was an interesting environment and I see that CERN had the same problems that the stock exchanges had. They even had the where the number one budgetary item wasn't cost but electric load.

You only had so much power physically available in the data centers next to the exchanges and server rooms inside them. Monetary cost was never an issue, but electric load was everything. It seems funny considering their load is strictly a science based load and not monetary, but their requirements and distribution remind me greatly of the exchanges.

girlintraining (1395911) | more than 2 years ago | (#40869199)

Probably true wherever you go, but the NYSE is in the middle of a dense urban area stretching for a hundred miles in every direction. Electricity, along with everything else, is painfully expensive there. I believe that's why so many data centers are built in relatively remote areas. Obviously, the NYSE has a physical location requirement... :\

FTFS: few hundred megabytes to 1Gb per second (0)

fnj (64210) | more than 2 years ago | (#40871225)

Er, 1 Gb is 100 megabytes. b is bit, B is byte. So which is meant, one gigabit or one gigabyte? I'm guessing the latter, from simple consistency. If we're going to use abbreviations, we should at least get them right.

Not really that huge (1)

fa2k (881632) | more than 2 years ago | (#40871413)

The summary says it's 100 MByte to 1 Gbit, which is confusing in itself. I think "a few hundred megabytes" is correct. It's impressive to run at that rate continuously with high reliability, but it's nothing compared to Youtube and probably Facebook. If you say a "tweet" takes up 200 bytes including overhead, that's 500 000 tweets per second at 100 MB/s, so maybe even Twitter has to deal with that rate. The requirement for redundancy is probably stricter for the LHC, they have at least triply redundant storage for the original data. The data processing is maybe more demanding for LHC than for big internet companies, as all data are essentially equal, so to do an analysis, all data files have to be accessed (there is more filtering after the trigger, and intermediate files are stored containing reconstructed information).

Re:Not really that huge (1)

fa2k (881632) | more than 2 years ago | (#40871509)
