                  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.

       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 – 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)

      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”




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




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




      -One to one ratio between FS to Volume

   ZFS Pool Storage




      -Pool Storage expand/shrink automatically
      -Shared Bandwidth (I/O)
      -Many FS to Storage Pool ratio


       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”




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.




        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


       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)




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




      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




     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



        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

      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



    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‖




    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 - 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)

          Redundancy with removal of drive - simulate losing a drive

                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.
