CiteSeerX — GIGA+: Scalable Directories for Shared File Systems

DouceurJon Howell Published in OSDI We present the design, implementation, and evaluation of a fully distributed directory service for Farsite, a logically centralized file system that is physically implemented on a loosely coupled network of desktop computers. It redesigned its centralized directory farsitee to be distributed for server load balancing by partitioning the metadata based on the file identifier, instead of the file path name [10].

We experimentally show that Farsite can dynamically partition file-system metadata while maintaining full file-system semantics. By clicking accept or continuing to use the site, you agree to the terms outlined in our Privacy PolicyTerms of Serviceand Dataset License.

Similarly, there are applications that store the output generated from scientific experime The end of an architectural era: In this discussion, we limit ourselves to extendible hashing, which uses a hash-table that grows and shrinks dynamically with usage, although a Btree approach would be simi Remote procedure call protocol specification version 2 – Srinivasan – Show Context Citation Context We describe some of the optimizations which are necessary to achieve good performance and low cost, including a log-structured design and a secure in-cloud log cleaner.


The advantages of a user-space implementation are ease of implementation and portability across various file systems: We leverage device intelligence by distributing data replica- tion, failure detection and recovery to semi-autonomous OSDs running a specialized local object file system. Directory service Centralized computing Loose coupling. Design and implementation – Pawlowski, Juszczak, et al. From This Paper Figures, tables, and topics from this paper.

B-trees naturally grow in an incremental manner but require logarithmic partition fetches per lookup, while hash-table which PVFS stores directories on a single server, which limits the scalability and throughout of operations on a single directory. Desktop computer Experiment Identifier. While a node is down or being reconstructed, its secondary executes all of its writes and reads, and uses chained declustering to shift some of its read workload over other servers.

Flexible, wide-area storage for distributed systems using semantic cues Jeremy Stribling In other words, clients do not cache any directory This has led us to reexamine traditional choices and explore rad- ically different design points.

Posted by Tevfik Kosar at 9: HowardDavid A. Disjunctive normal form Recursion. A trace-driven analysis of the UNIX 4. At this high level of real concurrency, even simple output file creation, one per thread, can induce intense metadata workloads.

In a large cluster, thousands of servers both host directly attached storage and execute user application tasks. File systems have used both types of structures or their variants for directory indexing; e. Directory service Search for additional papers on this topic. We have designed and implemented the Google File Sys- tem, a scalable distributed file system for large distributed data-intensive applications.


See our FAQ for additional information. Two trends motivate the need for scalable metadata services in shared file systems.

Distributed directory service in the farsite file system

Prior to this work, the Farsite system included distributed mechanisms for file content but centralized mechanisms for file metadata. BlueSky stores data persistently in a cloud storage provider such as Amazon S3 fils Windows Azure, allowing users to take advantage of the reliability and large storage capacity of cloud providers and avoid the need for dedicated server hardware. Tuesday, April 16, BlueSky: References Publications referenced by this paper.

The Hadoop Distributed File Dietributed HDFS is designed to store very large data sets reliably, and to stream those data sets at high bandwidth to user applications. Servixe distributing storage and computation across many servers, the resource can grow with demand while remaining economical at every size. It provides fault tolerance while running on inexpensive commodity hardware, and it delivers high aggregate performance to a large number of clients.

We present BlueSky, a network file system backed by cloud storage. The largest cluster to date provides hun- dreds of terabytes of storage across thousands of disks on over a thousand machines, and it is concurrently accessed by hundreds of directoyr.
