  1. VNOD: Virtual Network On-Demand DimitriosKatramatos, Dantong Yu, Sushant Sharma Brookhaven National Laboratory March 2012

  2. VNOD Objectives • Capability to construct on-demand, end-to-end virtual network domains • service communities of users at multiple end-sites • Provide a platform for applying various optimization schemes with diverse objectives • scheduling algorithms for end-to-end data transfer requests • A VNOD front-end • facilitate creation and management of virtual network domains by end users

  5. VNOD Components • Front End • Enables submission of virtual network requests • Interacts with VNODAPI for creating/activating schedules • VNOD API • Accepts input from front end • Invokes appropriate scheduling algorithm to obtain schedules • Forwards the schedules to ESCPS/TeraPaths to make reservations • Scheduling algorithms • Combines the input requests with resource availability to generate a feasible schedules • Resource availability is obtained from • End sites (via ESCPS) • WAN (via ARCHSTONE)

  6. VNOD Workflow • User requests a virtual domain setup via the front-end • The VNOD back-end: • Collects bandwidth availability information from domains involved in virtual path establishment • Interfaces with ARCHSTONE for WAN domains and TeraPaths/ESCPS for end-sites • Runs scheduling algorithm(s) • Makes appropriate reservation requests based on algorithm output by engaging ARCHSTONE and TeraPaths/ESCPS

  7. Front End

  8. Front End Workflow • Users have to provide their credentials to use VNOD (X.509 certificates)

  9. Front End Workflow User creating a virtual network request

  10. Front End Workflow User creating a virtual network request

  11. Front End Workflow History

  12. Front End Summary • Can be used by users to submit requests for virtual networks • Support user profiles • History of past network requests • Active and future virtual networks • Capability to create and save network templates • Capability to cancel any active/future reservations • Graphical representation of the selected network template on map

  13. Scheduling Algorithms

  14. Example Network SetupsSetup 1 • Multiple resource reservation requests in advance (e.g., one request corresponding to one file) • Objective is to create schedule that can finish the data transfer for all requests in minimum time possible • Assumption: Route and available bandwidth along hops is given • NP-hard problem:End-to-End network QoS via scheduling of flexible resource reservation requests, Sushant Sharma, DimitriosKatramatos, Dantong Yu, in ACM/IEEE Supercomputing 2011.

  15. Setup 1 (cont.)

  16. Example Network SetupsSetup 2 • Multiple requests traversing multiple domains • End-to-end route construction is now considered as part of the problem • Also NP-hard problem • Developed efficient algorithm (under submission to ACM HPDC 2012)

  17. Setup 2 (cont.)

  18. Setup 3(From one to N hosts) • Multiple flexible data transfer requests in advance • Every request could be for the data transfer from a single host to multiple other hosts • Need to develop and investigate the possible solution approaches

  19. Setup 4(Multiple WAN Domains) • End sites connected via multiple WAN domains • Multiple one-to-many requests • Significantly harder to generate the virtual network topology

  20. Code Development Details • Front-end • Google web toolkit • Jetty web-server • VNOD API • Web-service on a Jetty web-server • Scheduling algorithms • Exposed via an API deployed on Jetty web-server

  21. Example Use Case A file transfer tool to handle multiple files (e.g., Globus Online) • Needs to handle multiple file transfer requests • Existing tools cannot provide QoS guarantee • how many files can be transferred to meet deadlines? • transfer order? • what the underlying network can support? • Such tools can benefit from the use of VNOD • Pass file transfer list to VNOD, along with src/dst information, size, time windows • VNOD schedules the requests pursuing an optimization objective, e.g., minimum overall time • VNOD feeds the transfer schedule back to the tool and proceeds to reserve the necessary network resources

  22. Summary of Accomplishments • Identified key characteristics that will affect the final virtual network • Type of requests (fixed, flexible, hybrid) • Interface to ESCPS and OSCARS • Network setups (one domain, multiple domain, one-to-one, one-to-many, etc.) • Objective for data transfer • Front end that users can use to submit requests • Developed two scheduling algorithms for specific network setups • To accommodate multiple and flexible requests • E.g., shortest transfer time to finish all requests • One Scheduling algorithm accepted as regular paper in Supercomputing 2011 • The other under submission to ACM HPDC 2012

  23. Accomplishments (cont.) • Currently working towards implementing VNOD framework into code • Code base will be extensible to accommodate different scheduling algorithms, objectives, and heterogeneous network setups • VNOD code base • Finished implementing both end-to-end algorithms • Testing and debugging in progress • VNOD front-end and API is under development

  24. Status and Future Work • Implementation in progress • Increasingly difficult scheduling problems: • Single request/single path (TeraPaths/StorNet) • Multiple requests/single path/single WAN domain • Multiple requests/multiple paths/single WAN domain • Multiple requests/multiple paths/multiple WAN domains • Co-design with ARCHSTONE to attack scheduling complexities • Hierarchical scheduling (end-sites/WAN) • Tighter integration and interoperation

  25. Future Work (cont.) • Front End • Ability to delete network templates • Ability to reserve circuits between end-sites without TeraPaths/ESCPS (over WAN only) • Scheduling algorithms • Intelligent schedules for multiple sites • Tests on ESCPS testbed • Tests on ANI testbed
