PMDK: State of the Project

The SNIA NVM Programming Model is an agreement between dozens of companies on how the Operating System exposes persistent memory, building on the standard storage APIs.  But to make the most of persistent memory, application writers want to access persistence directly using memory semantics, and this can be tricky programming.  This is where PMDK comes in.  In this talk, Andy will explain the goals of PMDK, the primary motivation for creating it, and how well it has met those goals so far.  Andy will talk about what has worked well, as well as some of the challenges we still have ahead of us for PMDK.

Full stack optimization for Udisk with SPDK

UDisk provides persistent block storage to virtual cloud hosts in UCloud, which is automatically replicated to protect users from component failure. Currently, UDisk-SSD cannot meet the performance requirements of some users. We still had a lot of work to do to take full use of CPU, NVMe SSD and network. With the help of solutions provided by SPDK and some technologies such as RDMA, we made a deep optimization of whole IO path, making a great breakthrough in performance. New Generation UDisk-RSSD provides up to 1.2M iops and latency is as low as 100us. In this presentation, we will share the experience and results of performance optimization, and some work we will do in the future

Prepare for the next generation of memory, is your application a good candidate?

Applications are developing an insatiable appetite for DRAM memory. It is well known that the limited availability of system memory has a direct impact on performance for many software programs. To keep up with this demand, platforms have added more and more expensive memory since alternative solutions were not widely available… until now. This talk provides step-by-step instructions on how to use Intel® VTune™ Amplifier to determine whether an application may be a good candidate for using Intel Optane DC persistent memory as an affordable, high-capacity, volatile memory.

Optimize system configurations and workloads for Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory

Have you ever wondered if your system is configured well for its typical loads? Or if your typical workloads are well optimized for your system? Will your workloads benefit from Intel Optane DC persistent memory? State of the art performance analysis tools, for longer runs, do not always give sufficiently detailed performance metrics. More detailed performance analysis tools can overwhelm the user with huge amount of fine-grained data. Intel® VTune™ Amplifier’s Platform Profiler provides an adequate amount of data for a user to detect if there is any problem with the system configuration, or if there is any pressure on specific system components like memory or I/O that cause performance bottlenecks.  This presentation focuses on how to use Intel® VTune™ Amplifier Platform Profiler for (1) Analyzing suitability of your workload for Intel® Optane™ DC PMM and (2) Analyzing performance on an Intel® Optane™ DC PMM enabled system.

SPDK based user space NVMe/TCP transport solution and Intel’s 100Gb NIC update

In November 2018, NVM express releases the new spec of TCP transport for NVMe over fabrics. In this talk,  we would like to introduce the design, implementation and development plan of NVMe-oF TCP transport in SPDK . Currently, SPDK implements both TCP transport in host and target side, and can be tested against Linux kernel solution with good interoperability.  Besides,  some experiments results will be presented to demonstrate the performance and scalability of SPDK's NVMe-oF TCP transport implementation.  Moreover,  we will introduce some techniques for the further performance improvement of SPDK's solution, e.g.,  (1) leveraging user space TCP stack to replace the kernel TCP stack; (2) leveraging some features of NICs, we will introduce Intel’s New 100 Gb NIC. Compared with kernel solution, SPDK based NVMe-oF solution has much better per CPU core performance in different aspects (e.g., IOPS, latency).

Introduction of Baidu Chitu Storage with SPDK NVMe-oF Application

In the deep learning scenario, video and graphics are trained by GPU, which requires high concurrency and random reading of a large number of small data blocks. Under the common HDFS storage architecture, the performance of small files and the utilization of storage space are both low. High-speed GPU computing components need to match high-speed NVMe storage, HDFS storage architecture is difficult to unleash NVMe storage’s extreme performance.

 

Baidu Chitu Storage provides high throughput and low latency shared NVMe storage for GPU cluster, and adopts a layered architecture. The lower layer is a distributed high-availability block-level logical volume system based on NVMe-oF, and the upper layer is a parallel file system called Baidu Parallel FS (bpfs) on the logical volume. Small files and their meta-information are packaged and stored in logical volumes. The client accesses small files directly through NVMe-oF to the remote storage server. SPDK NVMe-oF is the key module of data path.

 

Baidu Chitu's storage latency is 10us higher than local NVMe. On one single client, multithreaded random IO of 16K small file can saturate the 100G network, and 500K IOPS for small files. Before reaching the hardware bottleneck, the aggregation throughput of multi-storage servers increases linearly. Meanwhile the aggregation throughput of multi-client random reads also increases linearly and the latency remains unchanged. Test performance from video and image trainings of 2 billion files is equivalent to the local multi-NVMe RAID0. Under the pressure of millions of IOPS on storage servers, using SPDK NVMe-oF saves 8 times CPU overhead than using Linux kernel modules. At the same time, the development and operation efficiency of SPDK user-mode program is much higher than that of kernel module.

Integrating SPDK in the NAS gateway

The goal of integrating SPDK in our NAS system is to build a highly available and high performenc cache layer with low latencies. We will use SPDK to take over local nvme device and export it out with SDPK iscsi target or NVMe-OF of the SPDK for higher performence. Then in our gateway nodes ,one local nvme device and one remote nvme device can be made mirrors as a cache layer in our NAS system.In this talk, we will go over the cache layer design of our NAS system,and how we use the SPDK to use remote nvme device in our system.

Accelerate Spark with Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory

The capacity of data grows rapidly in big data area, more and more memory are consumed either in the computation or holding the intermediate data for analytic jobs. For those memory intensive workloads, end-point users have to scale out the computation cluster or extend memory with storage like HDD or SSD to meet the requirement of computing tasks. For scaling out the cluster, the extra cost from cluster management, operation and maintenance will increase the total cost if the extra CPU resources are not fully utilized. To address the shortcoming above, Intel Optane DC persistent memory (Optane DCPM) brings the break to the traditional memory/storage hierarchy and scale up the computing server. It brings higher capacity than memory and higher bandwidth & lower latency than storage like SSD or HDD. And Spark is widely used in the analytics like SQL and ML on the cloud environment. For cloud environment, low performance of remote data access is typical stop gap for users especially for some I/O intensive queries. For the ML workload, it’s an iterative model which I/O bandwidth is key to the end-2-end performance. In this talk, we will introduce how to accelerate Spark SQL with OAP (https://github.com/Intel-bigdata/OAP) to accelerate SQL performance on Cloud to archive 8X performance gain and RDD cache to improve K-means performance leveraging Intel Optane DCPMM with 2.5X performance improvement. Also we will have a deep dive about the root cause for those performance gains.

Persistent Memory – which mode do I want? Where are the “gotchas” hidden?((first part))

Intel  Optane DC persistent memory can be configured either as persistent memory (AppDirect) or as main memory, with DRAM used as a cache (memory mode).  Each mode has some challenges for adoption and to extract the best performance from this memory technology and identify which configuration mode is best suited for your application, it is necessary to understand the architectural flow from the core to the memory and some key glass jaws. In this presentation, we will present an overview of the uncore architecture leading to architectural glass jaw issues to monitor when using Intel Optane DC persistent memory and the conditions to monitor when using Intel Optane DC persistent memory in both memory configurations with the relevant architectural background, recommendation on what tools/profiles to use with customer applications.

Why SSD developers need pynvme, and why pynvme needs SPDK?

SSD is becoming ubiquitous in both Client and Data Center markets. The requirements on function, performance and reliability are refreshed frequently. As a result, SSD design, especially the firmware, has been keeping upgrading and restructuring for the decade. 


The test makes the change under control. However, the firmware test is not as mature as the software test. We have well developed methodologies, processes and tools for software. But the embedded platform, where the firmware executes, only provides the limited resources on computation and memory. So, it is difficult to run full test in the native embedded environment. Practically, SSD vendors run system tests with 3-rd party software, consuming huge resources. The existed tools lacks the flexibility to make efficient tests against vendor's own features and flaws. SSD developers need an infrastructure to implement their test s or programs in low cost. Our pynvme is just the answer. 


The test-dedicated light-weighted NVMe driver is the most essential part of the solution, where we rely on SPDK. First, SPDK is reliable. It is designed and tested in large-scale Data Center. Second, SPDK is highly modularized. We can choose modules we need, and extend them with our own features. Last, but not the least, SPDK is active and open. People work for better quality and latest features, so we can focus on the features for testing. I even forget to mention the best-in-class performance.


As part of the SPDK community, pynvme also contributes to the up-stream. And another interesting side-effect is that, since SSD devices pass the test of pynvme s, they also pass the very first test of SPDK!
