  • How does disconnected operation work in distributed publish/subscribe systems?

  • Why is disconnected operation a problem?

  • What are some solutions?

  • How do these solutions perform?


Disconnected Operation: Motivation

Broker

  • User’s laptop connected at work

  • Disconnect at the end of the day

  • Reconnect at home

  • Events published while a subscriber is disconnected should be stored somewhere and replayed upon reconnection

Problem: Unicast State Transfer

Broker

Broker

Broker

Broker

Broker

Broker

  • State transfer is inefficient [unicast]

  • Publish/subscribe is efficient [multicast]

  • What’s the bandwidth overhead of unicast state transfer?

State Transfer Optimizations:Prefetching

Broker

  • Eagerly migrate state while the user is disconnected

  • Exploits knowledge of future mobility patterns

  • Shortens perceived length of disconnection to the system

  • Less state to transfer

  • State transfer period hidden from user

Broker

Broker

State Transfer Optimizations:Logging

Broker

  • Brokers cache recent publications

  • Exploits locality

  • Only partial state transfer needed if locality exists

  • Overhead could be worse if no locality exists

  • Requires cache space at brokers

Broker

State Transfer Optimizations:Home-Broker

Broker

  • Mobile client logically reconnects to “home” broker

  • Eliminates state transfer overhead

  • Increases perceived disconnection period

    • Unicast transfer even when connected

Evaluation:Factors Affecting Mobility

Mobility

  • Connection and disconnection periods

  • Predictive or repetitive mobility

  • Group mobility

Application

  • No. of publishers and subscribers

  • Publication rate

  • Subscription specificity

  • Subscription (interest) locality

  • Message size


Evaluation: Setup

  • Simulation Environment

    • NS2 network simulator

    • Implemented state transfer optimizations

  • Parameters

    • Topology

      • Metropolitan Area Network

      • 4 levels of degree 4  64 leaf brokers

    • Subscribers: 200, 400, 600, 800

    • Publishers: 100

    • Locality: random, 30%, 60%, 90%

  • Metric

    • Total message traffic

    • State transfer overhead (unicast/multicast)

Downtown

Commute Scenario

  • Simulate evening commute home

    • Subscribers work downtown (20 inner brokers)

    • Start commute between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm

    • 40% live in city center (30 inner brokers)

      • Take 15 min to 45 min to commute

    • 60% live in outskirts (34 outer brokers)

      • Take 45 min to 90 min to commute

  • Few total disconnections

  • Long disconnection periods


Commute Scenario:Average Overhead

  • Standard: almost 100% overhead

  • Logging: Slight improvement

  • Prefetching: negligible overhead

  • Home broker: poor due to sustained unicast

  • Peak overhead results

    • Up to 3x for Standard

    • Up to 27x for Home-broker


Commute Scenario:Total Message Cost

  • 800 subscribers

  • Same relative performance

  • Message cost tracks # of state transfers

  • Home-broker overhead even after reconnection

  • Max 10% concurrent state transfers


Random Scenario

  • More ad-hoc mobility

    • Subscriber starts at random broker

    • Disconnects for 10 min to 30 min

    • Walk (5 km/h), city driving (50 km/h), highway driving (100 km/h)

    • Reconnects to a random broker within range

    • Remains connected for 10 min to 30 min

    • (repeat)

  • More disconnections

  • Shorter disconnection periods


Random Scenario:Average Overhead

  • Standard: 100% overhead

  • Prefetching overhead now noticeable

    • Due to shorter disconnections

  • Logging diverges more from Standard

    • Due to hidden increase in locality with population

    • Due to more disconnections


Random Scenario:Effect of Locality

  • 800 subscribers

  • Adjust subscription locality by varying % of subscribers with identical subscriptions

  • Logging can approach “ideal” Prefetching

  • Others’ increasing overhead is due to decreasing multicast, and constant unicast


Random Scenario:Effect of Log Size

  • For Logging approach

  • Log size 0, 400, 800, 1200 events

  • Diminishing returns of increasing log size


Pervasive Scenario

  • Persistent connectivity

    • Similar mobility patterns as Random scenario

    • Disconnections are few seconds long

      • E.g. Cellular handoffs between cells

  • Many disconnections

  • Short disconnection periods


Pervasive Scenario:Average Overhead

  • Event migration is small portion of state transfer overhead

  • Similar overhead (except home-broker)

    • Due to very short disconnec-tions


Conclusions

  • The publish/subscribe model lends itself well to mobile applications

  • Mobility can break a distributed pub/sub system

    • Network overhead can double with only 10% concurrent movein’s

    • Stored events typically dominate overhead, not subscriptions

    • With sufficient locality, Logging approaches Prefetching

  • Future Work

    • Other scenarios: realistic traces, mobile publishers

    • Investigate effects of state transfer traffic on latency

    • Develop more state transfer optimizations

      • Multicast state transfer

      • Logging at intermediate brokers

      • Smarter cache replacement policies

Publisher

  • Reduce subscription traffic

  • Reduce publication traffic to the root


Covering and Advertisements

  • Our scenarios did not benefit significantly from covering and ads

  • Forwarding of events dominate overhead

    • 98% of overhead in Commute and Random scenarios

    • Covering only helps to quench subscriptions

  • There is little subscriber locality (in our scenarios)

    • Most events must propagate to the root broker

    • Ads only help to quench upstream publications
