virtualization
Virtualization
  • Virtualization is a framework or methodology of dividing the resources of a computer into multiple execution environments, by applying one or more concepts or technologies such as hardware and software partitioning, time-sharing, partial or complete machine simulation, emulation, quality of service, and many others.

slide5
Hypervisor - The hypervisor is the most basic virtualization component. It's the software that decouples the operating system and applications from their physical resources. A hypervisor has its own kernel and it's installed directly on the hardware, or "bare metal." It is, almost literally, inserted between the hardware and the Guest OS.
  • Virtual Machine - A virtual machine (VM) is a self-contained operating environment—software that works with, but is independent of, a host operating system. In other words, it's a platform-independent software implementation of a CPU that runs compiled code.
  • The VMs must be written specifically for the OSes on which they run. Virtualization technologies are sometimes called dynamic virtual machine software.

virtual machines
Virtual Machines
  • “A system VM provides a complete, persistent system environment that supports an operating system along with its many user processes. It provides the guest operating system with access to virtual hardware resources, including networking, I/O, and perhaps a graphical usser interface along wiith a processor and memory.”

slide7

Paravirtualization

  • It is a type of virtualization in which the entire OS runs on top of the hypervisor and communicates with it directly, typically resulting in better performance. The kernels of both the OS and the hypervisor must be modified, however, to accommodate this close interaction.
    • Ex. Xen Machine

Open Source Grid & Cluster 2008 by S.T.Selvi-MIT, Anna University, India

slide8
Xen
  • Xen is an open-source Virtual Machine Monitor or Hypervisor for both 32- and 64-bit processor architectures. It runs as software directly on top of the bare-metal, physical hardware and enables you to run several virtual guest operating systems on the same host computer at the same time. The virtual machines are executed securely and efficiently with near-native performance.

slide9
Xen
  • Hypervisor (VMM) sits on top of H//W
  • Ported to Linux/FreeBSD/NetBSD
  • Hosted OS kernel modification required
  • Near- native performance
  • Highly scalable

    • Virtual cluster service which is used to create Virtual Clusters
    • Virtual information service which is used to know the status of virtual resources.

Open Source Grid & Cluster 2008 by S.T.Selvi-MIT, Anna University, India

job submission client
Job Submission client
  • This component is responsible getting the user requirements for the creation of virtual cluster.
  • When the user is accessing the Virtual Cluster Service the user’s identity is verified using grid-map file. The Virtual Cluster Service contacts the Virtual Cluster Development Environment (VCDE) to create and configure the Virtual Cluster.
    • The inputs are type of Os, disk size, Host name etc.

Open Source Grid & Cluster 2008 by S.T.Selvi-MIT, Anna University, India

virtual cluster service vcs
Virtual Cluster Service (VCS)
  • It is the central or core part of the Virtual Cluster Development Environment. The Virtual Cluster Service contacts the VCDE for virtual machine creation. The Virtual Cluster Server maintains the Dispatcher, Network Manager, Resource Aggregator, User Manager, and Job Queue.

Open Source Grid & Cluster 2008 by S.T.Selvi-MIT, Anna University, India

resource aggregator
Resource Aggregator
  • This module fetches all the resource information from physical cluster and these information are updated periodically to the Host Pool.
  • The Host Pool maintains the Head and Compute node’s logical volume partition, logical volume disk space total and free, ram size total and free, Kernel type, gateway, broadcast address, network address, netmask etc.

Open Source Grid & Cluster 2008 by S.T.Selvi-MIT, Anna University, India

match maker
Match Maker
  • The Match Making process compares the User’s requirements with the physical resource availability.
  • The physical resource information such as Disk space, RamSizeFree, Kernel Version, Operating Systems are gathered from the resource aggregator via virtual cluster server module.
  • In this module the rank of matched host is calculated by using RamSizeFree and disk space.
  • The details are returned as Hashtable with hostname and rank and send it to the UserServiceThread.

Open Source Grid & Cluster 2008 by S.T.Selvi-MIT, Anna University, India

host user and job pools
Host, User and Job pools
  • Host pool gets the list of hosts form the information aggregator and identifies the list of free nodes in order to create virtual machines on the physical nodes.
  • User poolis responsible for maintaining the list of authorized users. It also has the facility to allow which users are allowed to create the virtual execution environment. We can also limit the number of jobs for each user.
  • Job pool maintains a user request as jobs in Queue from the user manager module. It processes the user request one by one for the dispatcher module to the input for match maker module

Open Source Grid & Cluster 2008 by S.T.Selvi-MIT, Anna University, India

job status
Job Status
  • Job Status service accesses the Job Pool through VCDE Server and displays the virtual cluster status and job status dynamically.

Open Source Grid & Cluster 2008 by S.T.Selvi-MIT, Anna University, India

dispatcher
Dispatcher
  • Dispatcher is invoked when the job is submitted to the Virtual Cluster Server. The Dispatcher module gets the job requirements and updates in the job pool with job id. After that, the dispatcher sends the job to match making module with user's Requirements available in the host pool.
  • The matched hosts are identified and the ranks for the matched resources are computed.
    • The rank is calculated based on the free ramsize. The resource which has more free ramsize gets the highest rank.

Open Source Grid & Cluster 2008 by S.T.Selvi-MIT, Anna University, India

scheduler
Scheduler
  • The Scheduler module is invoked after the matching host list is generated by the match making module.
  • The resources are ordered based on the rank. The node having the highest rank is considered as the Head node for the Virtual Clusters.
  • Virtual machines are created as compute nodes from the matched host list and the list of these resources are sent to Dispatcher Module.

Open Source Grid & Cluster 2008 by S.T.Selvi-MIT, Anna University, India

virtual cluster manager
Virtual Cluster Manager
  • Virtual Cluster Manager Module (VCM) is implemented by using the Round-Robin Algorithm. Based on the user’s node count, VCM creates the first node as the head node and others as compute nodes.
  • The VCM waits until it receives the message on successful creation of Virtual Cluster and the completion software installation.

Open Source Grid & Cluster 2008 by S.T.Selvi-MIT, Anna University, India

virtual machine creator
Virtual Machine Creator
  • The two main functions of the virtual machine creator are
    • Updating Resource Information and
    • Creation of Virtual Machines
    • The resource information viz., hostname, OS, Architecture, Kernel Version, Ram disk, Logical Volume device, Ram Size, Broadcast Address, Net mask, Network Address and Gateway Addresses are getting updated in the host pool through VCS.
  • Based the message received from the Virtual Cluster Manager it starts to create the virtual machines.
    • If the message received from the VCM is “Head Node”, it starts to create the Virtual Cluster Head Node with required software
    • else if the message received from the Virtual Cluster Manager is “Client Node”, it creates the compute node with minimal software.

Open Source Grid & Cluster 2008 by S.T.Selvi-MIT, Anna University, India

security server
Security Server
  • The Security Server is to perform mutual authentication dynamically.
  • When the Virtual Cluster installation and configuration is completed, the Security client running in the virtual cluster head node sends the certificate file, signing policy file and the user's identity to the Security server running in VCS.

Open Source Grid & Cluster 2008 by S.T.Selvi-MIT, Anna University, India

executor module
Executor Module
  • After the formation of virtual clusters, the executor module is invoked.
  • This module fetches the job information from the job pool and creates RSL file and contacts the Virtual Cluster Head Node’s Job Managed Factory Service and submits this job description RSL file. It gets the job status and updates the same in the job pool.

Open Source Grid & Cluster 2008 by S.T.Selvi-MIT, Anna University, India

transfer module
Transfer Module
  • The job executable, input files and RSL file are transferred using the transfer manager to the Virtual Cluster Head Node.
  • After the execution of the job, the output file is transferred to the head node of the physical cluster.

Open Source Grid & Cluster 2008 by S.T.Selvi-MIT, Anna University, India

virtual information service

conclusion
Conclusion
  • The VCDE (Virtual Cluster Development Environment) has been designed and developed for creating virtual clusters automatically to satisfy the requirements of the users.
  • There is no human intervention in the process of creating the virtual execution environment. The complete automation takes more time, so in the near future, the performance of the VCDE will be improved
  • VCDE has been implemented for a single cluster
  • It has to be extended for multiple clusters by considering the meta scheduler.
