Abstract:The MPI programming model hides network type and topology from developers, but also allows them to seamlessly distribute a computational job across multiple cores in both an intra and inter node fashion. This provides for high locality performance when the cores are either on the same node or on nodes closely connected by the same network type. The streaming model splits a computational job into a linear chain of decoupled units. This decoupling allows the placement of job units on optimal nodes according to network topology. Furthermore, the links between these units can be of varying protocols when the application is distributed across a heterogeneous network. In this paper we study how to integrate the MPI and Stream programming models in order to exploit network locality and topology. We present a hybrid MPI-Stream framework that aims to take advantage of each model's strengths. We test our framework with a financial application. This application simulates an electronic market for a single financial instrument. A stream of buy and sell orders is fed into a price matching engine. The matching engine creates a stream of order confirmations, trade confirmations, and quotes based on its attempts to match buyers with sellers. Our results show that the hybrid MPIStream framwork can deliver a 58 percent performance improvement at certain order transmission rates.

Abstract:Modern supercomputing systems have witnessed a phenomenal growth in the recent history owing to the advent of multi-core architectures and high speed networks. However, the operational and maintenance costs of these systems have also grown rapidly. Several concepts such as Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Scaling (DVFS), CPU Throttling have been proposed to conserve the power consumed by the compute nodes during idle periods. However, it is necessary to design software stacks in a power-aware manner to minimize the amount of power drawn by the system during the execution of applications. It is also critical to minimize the performance overheads associated with power-aware algorithms, as the benefits of saving power could be lost if the application runs for a longer time. Modern multi-core architectures such as the Intel "Nehalem" allow for DVFS and CPU throttling operations to be performed with little overheads. In this paper, we explore how these features can be leveraged to design algorithms to deliver fine-grained power savings during the communication phases of parallel applications. We also propose a theoretical model to analyze the power consumption characteristics of communication operations. We use micro-benchmarks and application benchmarks such as NAS and CPMD to measure the performance of our proposed algorithms and to demonstrate the potential for saving power with 32 and 64 processes. We observe about 8% improvement in the overall energy consumed by these applications.

Panda, "A Portable InfiniBand Module for MPICH2/Nemesis: Design and Evaluation", 10th Workshop on Communication Architecture for Clusters (CAC 2010), in Conjunction with ICPP '10, San Diego, CA, USA (preprint, abstract/bibtex )

Abstract:With the emergence of multi-core-based processors, it is becoming significantly important to optimize both intra-node and inter-node communication in an MPI stack. MPICH2 group has recently introduced a new Nemesis-based MPI stack which provides highly optimized design for intra-node communication. It also provides modular design for different inter-node networks. Currently, the MPICH2/Nemesis stack has support for TCP/IP and Myrinet only. The TCP/IP interface allows this stack to run on the emerging InfiniBand network with IPoIB support. However, this approach does not deliver good performance and can not exploit the novel mechanisms and features provided by InfiniBand. In this paper, we take on the challenge of designing a portable InfiniBand network module (IB-netmod) for Nemesis. The IB-netmod is designed over the Verbs-level interface of InfiniBand and can take advantage of all features and mechanisms of InfiniBand. A complete design of the IB-netmod with the associated challenges are presented. A comprehensive performance evaluation (micro-benchmarks, collectives and applications) of the new Nemesis-IB design is carried out against the Nemesis TCP/IP (with IPoIB support on InfiniBand) and the native IB support of the MVAPICH2 stack. The new IB-netmod is able to deliver comparable performance to that of the native IB support of MVAPICH2. Compared to the MPICH2/IPoIB support for InfiniBand, the new design is able to deliver significant performance benefits. For NAMD application with 256 cores, the new IB-netmod is able to deliver 4 percent improvement compared to the latest MVAPICH2 release. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first IB-netmod design for the MPICH2/Nemesis framework. The next release of MVAPICH2 will be having this new IB-netmod support.

Autonomic Computing: Simulation Based Self-Optimization

E. P. Mancini, M. Rak, R. Torella, U. Villano, "Predictive autonomicity of web services in MAWeS framework", Journal of Computer Science, Science Pubblications, Volume 2, Issue 6, pp. 513-520, 2006. (pdf, abstract/bibtex )

Abstract: In Web Services designs classical optimization techniques are not applicable. A possible solution to guarantee critical requirements is the use of an autonomic architecture, able to auto-configure and to auto-tune. This study presents MAWeS (MetaPL/HeSSE Autonomic Web Services), a framework whose aim is to support the development of self-optimizing predictive autonomic systems for Web service architectures. It adopts a simulation-based methodology, which allows to predict system performance in different status and load conditions. The predicted results are used for a feedforward control of the system, which self-tunes before the new conditions and the subsequent performance losses are actually observed.

Abstract:The highly distributed nature and the load sensitivity of Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) make it very difficult to guarantee performance requirements under rapidlychanging load conditions. This paper deals with the development of service oriented autonomic systems that are capable to optimize themselves using a feedforward approach, by exploiting automatically generated performance predictions. The MAWeS (MetaPL/HeSSE Autonomic Web Services) framework allows the development of self-tuning applications that proactively optimize themselves by simulating the execution environment. After a discussion on the possible design choices for the development of autonomic web services applications, a soft real-time test application is presented and the performance results obtained in three different execution scenarios are commented.

Abstract: Service-oriented architectures (SOA) and, in particular, web services technologies are widely adopted for the development of interoperable systems. In a dynamic scenario, a composed service may exploit component services in order to complete its task; composed services are variously distributed, and offered by different providers in different security domains and under different load conditions. So, the development of services and their integration entails a huge number of design choices. Obtaining optimality for all of the involved parameters for composed services is a challenging and open issue. In this paper we present MAWeS, an autonomic framework that makes it possible to auto-configure and to auto-tune the composition of services, guaranteeing optimal performance and the fulfillment of given security requirements. We will illustrate the framework architecture and how it is able to support the development of self-optimizing autonomic services on the basis of two evaluation services, the first one able to predict the performance of different services execution, the second one able to evaluate the security level provided by a service.

Abstract: Service-oriented architectures (SOA) and, in particular, Web Services designs are currently widely used for the development of open, large-scale interoperable systems. In those systems performance, security and trustability are challenging open issues. As regards performance, in Web Services designs, abstraction layers completely hide the underlying system to all users, and classical techniques for system optimization (such as ad-hoc tuning, performance engineered software development, ...) are not applicable. As far as security is concerned, the need of trust mechanisms in open environments is a well-known problem, widely discussed in the literature, but few techniques for security evaluation are available. In this paper we propose an integrated solution to optimize performance and to guarantee security of Web Services architectures. The proposed solution is based on a framework, MAWeS, which adopts simulation in order to predict system performances and adopts policies for security description and evaluation.

Abstract: In mobile agents systems, classical techniques for system optimization are not applicable due to continuous changes of the execution contexts. MAWeS (MetaPL/HeSSE Autonomic Web Services) is a framework whose aim is to support the development of self-optimizing autonomic systems for Web service architectures. In this paper we apply the autonomic approach to the reconfiguration of agent-based applications. The enrichment of the Aglet Workbench with a Web Services interface is described, along with the extensions to the MAWeS framework needed to support the mobile agents programming paradigm. Then a mobile agents application solving the N-Body problem is presented as a case study.

Abstract: Service oriented architectures (SOA) are based on applications consisting of an aggregation of services with standard interface, offered on distributed hosts. The highly distributed nature and the load sensitivity of these architectures make it very difficult to guarantee performance requirements under rapidly-changing load conditions. This paper deals with the development of service oriented predictive autonomic systems that are capable to optimize themselves using a feedforward approach, by exploiting automatically generated performance predictions. The MAWeS (MetaPL/HeSSE autonomic Web services) framework allows the development of self-tuning applications that proactively optimize themselves by simulating the execution environment. An example of application development in MAWeS is thoroughly dealt with, showing the implementation of a system that exploits MAWeS services to choose dynamically among several different algorithms to meet response time constraints.

Abstract:Service-oriented architectures (SOA) and, in particular, Web Services are the emerging technologies to develop interoperable systems. In spite of the maturity of these new architectural models and technologies, the security of open services is still a challenging open issue; furthermore, the overall performance of a service built by composition of many atomic services can depend on many factors that need to be addressed. We are working on the design and the development of the MAWeS architecture, a framework that supports the development of self-optimizing autonomic systems for Web Services architectures. It relies on a simulation service to predict system performance and adopts a security evaluation service that implements a policy-based methodology for security description and evaluation. In this paper we sketch the MAWeS architecture, illustrating how to use it to optimize the performance of a typical compound Web Services application while at the same time guaranteeing that a set of security requirements, expressed by a security policy, are met.

Abstract:This paper describes a simulation-based technique for the performance prediction of message-passing applications on cluster systems by means of benchmark data. Given data measuring the performance of a target cluster in the form of standard benchmark results, along with the details of the chosen computing configuration, it is possible to build and to validate automatically a detailed simulation model. This makes it possible to predict off-line, i.e. without resorting to the real hardware, the performance of fully developed or even of skeletal code. An XML-based language (MetaPL) is adopted to describe the application behavior in the development stage. After a description of the approach and the illustration of the construction and validation of the simulation model, the paper presents a case study.

Abstract: This paper deals with the performance optimization of multiple-task applications in GRID environments. Typically such applications are launched by a Resource Manager, which only takes into account the application's resource requirements and current availability on the GRID. Here a novel approach is presented, that performs resource management in user space, making it possible to exploit application modularity and flexibility and to take into account expected performance figures produced by GRID simulation. The objective is to make optimized choices that can lead to reduced application response times. After an introduction to the GRID simulation environment used, the structure of an application launcher able to optimize a number of application tasks and their mapping on the GRID is sketched, presenting the encouraging performance results obtained.

Abstract: This paper describes a simulation-based technique for the performance prediction of message-passing applications on cluster systems. Given data measuring the performance of a target cluster in the form of standard benchmark results, along with the details of the chosen computing configuration (e.g., the number of nodes), it is possible to build and to validate automatically a detailed simulation model. This makes it possible to predict the performance of fully-developed or skeletal code off-line, i.e., without resorting to the real hardware. The reasonable accuracy obtained makes this approach particularly useful for preliminary performance testing of parallel code on non-available hardware. After a description of the approach and of the construction and validation of the simulation model, the paper presents a case study.

Abstract: In SMP clusters it is not always convenient to switch from pure message-passing code to hybrid software designs that exploit shared memory. This paper tackles the problem of restructuring an existing MPI code through the insertion of OpenMP directives. The choice of the best code is carried out with a performance-oriented approach, predicting the effect of application hybridization in the MetaPL/HeSSE simulation environment, without writing and running any hybrid software. The technique is validated by applying the devised changes to the code, and comparing the predicted results to actual running time measurements.

Abstract: Historically, high performance systems use schedulers and intelligent resource managers in order to optimize system usage and application performance. Most of the times, applications just issue requests of resources to the central system. This centralized approach is an unnecessary constraint for a class of potentially flexible applications, whose resource usage may be modulated as a function of the system status. In this paper we propose a tool which, in a way essentially transparent to final users, lets the application to self-tune in function of the status of the target execution environment. The approach hinges on the use of the MetaPL/HeSSE methodology, i.e., on the use of simulation to predict execution times and skeletal descriptions of the application to describe run-time resource usage.

Abstract: GRID Application development is a hard task. Good applications should correctly use large distributed systems, whose infrastructure heavily affects the application performance. In this paper we propose a performance oriented approach to GRID application development, founded on the use of a prototype language (MetaPL) for the description of the applications and the use of a heterogeneous system simulation environment (HeSSE) for performance prediction. We developed GRID simulation components for the existing simulation environment (HeSSE) and validated them. After that we extended the MetaPL language in order to explicitly support GRID application features and simulated a simple case study to show how the approach works.

Abstract: This paper presents an integrated set of tools for performance-oriented development of software targeted to distributed heterogeneous systems. Using these tools, software development is carried out through a friendly and handy graphical interface able to exploit the MetaPL notation system for software description and the HeSSE simulation environment for its performance evaluation. MetaPL is an XML-based language that allows the description and the analysis at different level of detail of programs written in any distributed programming language and run-time support. HeSSE is a simulation environment that makes it possible to predict parallel and distributed software performance even in the first steps of software development, when no actual code has yet been written. The paper shows how MetaPL and HeSSE, along with the relative tools, have been integrated in order to provide a flexible and general-purpose graphical development environment and presents an example of its use.

(doi, pdf, abstract/bibtex )

Abstract: One of the leading programming techniques for the development of distributed applications is the use of Web services (WS). The strong point of WS technology is the definition of an operating environment that can be adopted to execute applications, independently of the original development and deployment platforms. However, whenever performance is an issue, the message overhead resulting from the XML messaging approach and from the software layers introduced to obtain system abstraction should be carefully considered. This paper presents a simulation-based methodology that makes it possible to predict Web services-based application performance, even if the execution environment of choice is not available and the application is not completely developed. This methodology can be used as the basis for performance-driven Web services development. The proposed methodology is applied to the development of a simple but realistic Web service application.

Abstract:Cloud Computing, born in the e-business context, and GRID computing, originated in the e-science context, are two different but similar paradigms for managing large sets of distributed computing resources. In the last few years there have been many efforts that aim at integrating them. One of the main problems linked to the use of the virtualization techniques adopted in clouds in the GRID and High Performance Computing context derives from the overheads in the virtualization layer. This paper introduces PerfCloud, a cloud environment built on the top of a GRID system, which lets the user to instantiate Virtual Clusters (VCs) that become part of the starting GRID. The architecture proposed integrates a set of services able to predict the performance (response time) of user applications on the newly generated VC taking into account the actual amount of computing and communication resources allocated to the VC, as well as the presence of the virtualization layer. The obtained predictions let the user to evaluate on-the-fly if the created VC is compatible with his performance expectations or not.

Abstract:Modeling and metrological characterization of A/D converters. Il lavoro presenta un sistema modulare per la modellazione e la caratterizzazione dei convertitori analogico-digitali. Il sistema è costituito da (i) uno strumento virtuale (VI), che si occupa della modellazione dei convertitori, (ii) un VI per il testing, ed (iii) un'interfaccia software per la strumentazione. E' in fase di verifica funzionale un database, con relativo gestore, per la registrazione e la condivisione tra diversi utenti delle misure e dei risultati dei test. Il software è stato sviluppato in Java per assicurarne l'indipendenza dalla piattaforma sulla quale verrà eseguito e permettere, con l'ausilio della tecnologia CORBA, un supporto all'elaborazione distribuita. L'architettura modulare di cui è dotato, inoltre, assicura una buona flessibilità e capacità di espansione. Il sistema è stato applicato a convertitori con architettura seriale, mediante la realizzazione di moduli dedicati, tuttavia, può essere facilmente utilizzato su convertitori di tipo diverso realizzando ulteriori moduli.

Embedded systems

E. Ciniglio, E. P. Mancini, U. Villano, "RSA Authentication for Secure Flashing of Automotive ECUs", Published online, Università del Sannio, 2008 (pdf, abstract/bibtex )

Abstract:In many embedded applications in the automotive field, there is the need to protect the data and software in Electronic Control Units (ECUs). To avoid illegal write and read operations on Flash memories we propose a method to identify the operator in a secure way, by means of asymmetric key cryptographic algorithms based on the RSA standard. We measure the performance and memory usage of the authentication system, discussing if they are compatible with the memory footprint and processing power of embedded devices.
