Snooze based entry running on Grid'5000 entry wins [http://www.pds.ewi.tudelft.nl/ccgrid2013/awards/ 2nd prize] at [http://www.pds.ewi.tudelft.nl/ccgrid2013/ CCGrid 2013] [http://www.pds.ewi.tudelft.nl/ccgrid2013/calls/scale-challenge/ SCALE challenge]: well done Matthieu and Anne-Cécile for defending the entry titled ''Scalability of the Snooze Autonomic Cloud Management System'' by Eugen Feller, Christine Morin, Matthieu Simonin, Anne-Cécile Orgerie, and Yvon Jégou.
 
 
 
=== Grid'5000 users finalists of the SCALE'2013 challenge ===
 
Two submissions (out of five) from Grid'5000 users took part in the final of the international SCALE'2013 challenge (held with CCGrid'2013):
 
* D. Balouek, A. Lèbre, F. Quesnel Flauncher and DVMS -- Deploying and Scheduling Thousands of Virtual Machines on Hundreds of Nodes Distributed Geographically
 
* Eugen Feller, Christine Morin, Matthieu Simonin, Anne-Cécile Orgerie, and Yvon Jégou -- Scalability of the Snooze Autonomic Cloud Management System.
 
 
 
The first proposition presents the deployment and scheduling of thousands of virtual machines, conducted with the Flauncher and DVMS frameworks, across the Grid'5000 testbed.
 
The frameworks have been able to deploy and schedule up to 10000 VMs during the tests. This research has been conducted in the context of the INRIA Hemera initiative.
 
 
 
The second proposition presents the Snooze architecture and focus on the following aspects :
 
* System set up scalability and resources consumption,
 
* Self-healing capabilities.
 
The deployment of Snooze were distributed over several sites of the Grid'5000 testbed.
 
The framework has been able to start 11000 of system services, recover thousands of failures
 
and used to launch large hadoop/mapreduce experiments.
 
This research has been conducted in the context of the INRIA Snooze ADT.

Grid'5000

Grid'5000 is a large-scale and flexible testbed for experiment-driven research in all areas of computer science, with a focus on parallel and distributed computing including Cloud, HPC and Big Data and IA.

Key features:

  • provides access to a large amount of resources: 12000 cores, 800 compute-nodes grouped in homogeneous clusters, and featuring various technologies: GPU, SSD, NVMe, 10G and 25G Ethernet, Infiniband, Omni-Path
  • highly reconfigurable and controllable: researchers can experiment with a fully customized software stack thanks to bare-metal deployment features, and can isolate their experiment at the networking layer
  • advanced monitoring and measurement features for traces collection of networking and power consumption, providing a deep understanding of experiments
  • designed to support Open Science and reproducible research, with full traceability of infrastructure and software changes on the testbed
  • a vibrant community of 500+ users supported by a solid technical team


Read more about our teams, our publications, and the usage policy of the testbed. Then get an account, and learn how to use the testbed with our Getting Started tutorial and the rest of our Users portal.

Grid'5000 is merging with FIT to build the SILECS Infrastructure for Large-scale Experimental Computer Science. Read an Introduction to SILECS (April 2018)

Latest news

Rss.svgNew ARM cluster "Pyxis" available on Lyon (testing queue)

We have the pleasure to announce that a new cluster named "pyxis" is available in the testing queue in Lyon.

It is the first cluster with ARM CPU (ThunderX2 9980) in Grid'5000 ! This cluster is composed of 4 nodes, each of them with 2 ThunderX2 9980 CPU (32 cores/CPU, 4 threads/cores), 256 GB RAM, 2 x 250 GB HDD, 10 Gbps Ethernet. Each node's power consumption is monitored with the wattmetre of Lyon (although it is currently broken¹). It is planned to add Infiniband network to Pyxis.

Pyxis nodes can be reserved in the testing queue (add "-q testing -p cluster='pyxis'" to your OAR submission) and arm64 environments are available to be deployed on this cluster. Beware that as it is a different CPU architecture, compiled programs targeting x86 (such as those provided by module) won't execute.

Any feedback is welcome.

This cluster has been funded by the CPER LECO++ Project (FEDER, Région Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes, DRRT, Inria).

Rss.svgUbuntu 20.04 image available

A kadeploy image (environment) for Ubuntu 20.04 (ubuntu2004-x64-min) is now available and registered in all sites with Kadeploy, along with other supported environments (Centos 7, Centos 8, Ubuntu 18.04, Debian testing, and various Debian 9 and Debian 10 variants).

This image is built with Kameleon (just like other Grid'5000 environments). The recipe is available in the environments-recipes git repository.

If you need other system images for your work, please let us know.

Rss.svgSingularity containers in Grid'5000

We now offer a better support for Singularity containers Grid'5000. It is available in the standard environment and does not require to be root.

Just run the "singularity" command to use it. It can also be run in a OAR submission (none-interactive batch job), for instance:

oarsub -l core=1 "/grid5000/code/bin/singularity run library://sylabsed/examples/lolcow"

More information about the Singularity usage in Grid'5000 is available in the Singularity page.

Singularity is a popular container solution for HPC systems. It natively supports GPU and high performance network in containers and is compatible with docker images. More info at: https://sylabs.io/docs/

Rss.svgImportant change in the User Management System - Groups which Grant Access to the testbed

An important update to the Grid'5000 User Management System just happened. This update brings a new concept: users now get granted access to the testbed through a group membership.

These Groups which Grant Access (GGAs) allow a dispatch of the management and reporting tasks for the usage of the platform to closer managers than the Grid’5000 site managers.

Every user has to be a member of a GGA to be allowed access to the platform. The memberships are currently being worked by the staff, the site managers and new GGA managers.

You may receive emails about moves regarding your account: Don't worry. The transition to GGA should not impact your use of the platform and experimentations.

As a reminder, if you encounter problems or have questions, please report them either on the users mailing list or to the support staff, as described in the Support page. More information about this change is available in the User Management Service documentation page.
