Introduction to Database Systems Distributed Databases Distributed Systems Distributed Databases for Physics J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 2 Part I Part Introduction to Database Systems . Julian Bunn California Institute of Technology What is a Database? ? ? ? ? ? A large, integrated collection of data Entities (things) and Relationships (connections) Objects and Associations/References A Database Management System (DBMS) is a software package designed to store and manage Databases “Traditional” (ER) Databases and “Object” Databases J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 4 Why Use a DBMS? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Data Independence Efficient Access Reduced Application Development Time Data Integrity Data Security Data Analysis Tools Uniform Data Administration Concurrent Access Automatic Parallelism Recovery from crashes 5 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Cutting Edge Databases ? ? ? ? ? Scientific Applications Digital Libraries, Interactive Video, Human Genome project, Particle Physics Experiments, National Digital Observatories, Earth Images Commercial Web Systems Data Mining / Data Warehouse Simple data but very high transaction rate and enormous volume (e.g. click through) 6 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Data Models ? ? ? Data Model: A Collection of Concepts for Describing Data Schema: A Set of Descriptions of a Particular Collection of Data, in the context of the Data Model Relational Model: ? E.g. A Lecture is attended by zero or more is Students E.g. A Database Lecture inherits attributes inherits from a general Lecture 7 ? Object Model: ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Data Independence ? Applications insulated from how data in the Database is structured and stored Logical Data Independence: Protection from changes in the logical structure of the data ? Physical Data Independence: Protection from changes in the physical structure of the data ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 8 Concurrency Control ? ? Good DBMS performance relies on allowing concurrent access to the data by more than one client DBMS ensures that interleaved actions coming from different clients do not cause inconsistency in the data ? E.g. two simultaneous bookings for the same airplane seat ? Each client is unaware of how many other clients are using the DBMS 9 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Transactions ? ? A Transaction is an atomic sequence of actions in the Database (reads and writes) Each Transaction has to be executed completely, and must leave the completely Database in a consistent state ? The definition of “consistent” is ultimately the client’s responsibility! responsibility! ? If the Transaction fails or aborts midway, then the Database is “rolled back” to its initial consistent state (when the Transaction began). 10 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 What Is A Transaction? ? ? Programmer’s view: ? Bracket a collection of actions Only two outcomes: Begin() action action action A simple failure model simple ? Begin() action action action action Begin() action action action Rollback() Rollback() Commit() Fail !! Fail Success! J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Failure! 11 ACID ? ? ? ? Atomic: all or nothing Consistent: state transformation Isolated: no concurrency anomalies Durable: committed transaction effects persist J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 12 Why Bother: Atomicity? ? RPC semantics: ? ? At most once: try one time At least once: keep trying ’till acknowledged Exactly once: keep trying ’till acknowledged and server discards duplicate requests ? ? ? ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 13 Why Bother: Atomicity? ? Example: insert record in file ? At most once: time-out means “maybe” ? At least once: retry may get “duplicate” error or retry may do second insert ? Exactly once: you do not have to worry ? What if operation involves ? Insert several records? ? Send several messages? ? Want ALL or NOTHING for group of actions J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 14 Why Bother: Consistency ? ? Begin-Commit brackets a set of operations You can violate consistency inside brackets Debit but not credit (destroys money) ? Delete old file before create new file in a copy ? Print document before delete from spool queue ? ? Begin and commit are points of consistency State transformations new state under construction Commit Begin J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 15 Why Bother: Isolation ? Running programs concurrently on same data can create concurrency anomalies ? The shared checking account example Begin() read BAL add 10 write BAL Bal = 100 Bal = 100 Bal = 110 Bal = 70 Begin() read BAL Subtract 30 write BAL Commit() Commit() ? Programming is hard enough without having to worry about concurrency 16 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Isolation ? ? It is as though programs run one at a time ? No concurrency anomalies System automatically protects applications ? Locking (DB2, Informix, Microsoft® SQL Server™, Sybase…) SQL ? Versioned databases (Oracle, Interbase…) Begin() read BAL add 10 write BAL Bal = 100 Begin() Bal = 110 Bal = 110 Bal = 80 Commit() read BAL Subtract 30 write BAL Commit() J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 17 Why Bother: Durability ? ? Once a transaction commits, want effects to survive failures Fault tolerance: old master-new master won’t work: Can’t do daily dumps: would lose recent work ? Want “continuous” dumps ? ? ? Redo “lost” transactions in case of failure Resend unacknowledged messages 18 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Why ACID For Client/Server And Distributed ? ? ? ACID is important for centralized systems Failures in centralized systems are simpler In distributed systems: ? More and more -independent failures ? ACID is harder to implement ? That makes it even MORE IMPORTANT ? Simple failure model ? Simple repair model J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 19 ACID Generalizations ? Taxonomy of actions ? Unprotected: ? Temp not undone or redone files ? Transactional: can be undone before commit ? Database and message operations ? Real: cannot be undone ? Drill a hole in a piece of metal, print a check ? ? Nested transactions: subtransactions Work flow: long-lived transactions 20 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Scheduling Transactions ? ? ? ? The DBMS has to take care of a set of Transactions that arrive concurrently It converts the concurrent Transaction set into a new set that can be executed sequentially It ensures that, before reading or writing an Object, each Transaction waits for a Lock on the Object Lock Each Transaction releases all its Locks when finished ? (Strict Two -Phase-Locking Protocol) Two-Phase21 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Concurrency Control Locking ? ? How to automatically prevent concurrency bugs? Serialization theorem: ? ? If you lock all you touch and hold to commit: no bugs If you do not follow these rules, you may see bugs Set automatically (well-formed) Released at commit/rollback (two-phase locking) Granularity: objects or containers or server Mode: shared or exclusive or… 22 ? Automatic Locking: ? ? ? Greater concurrency for locks: ? ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Reduced Isolation Levels ? ? ? It is possible to lock less and risk fuzzy data Example: want statistical summary of DB ? But do not want to lock whole database Repeatable Read: may see fuzzy inserts/delete ? But will serialize all updates Read Committed: see only committed data Read Uncommitted: may see uncommitted updates Reduced levels: ? ? ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 23 Ensuring Atomicity ? ? ? The DBMS ensures the atomicity of a atomicity Transaction, even if the system crashes in the middle of it In other words all of the Transaction is all applied to the Database, or none of it is none How? ? ? ? Keep a log/history of all actions carried out on log/history the Database Before making a change, put the log for the change somewhere “safe” After a crash, effects of partially executed transactions are undone using the log 24 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 DO/UNDO/REDO ? Each action generates a log record Old state DO New state ? Has an UNDO action Log New New state UNDO Old state Log ? Has a REDO action Old state Log New New state REDO J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 25 What Does A Log Record Look Like? ? Log record has ? Header ? Item (transaction ID, timestamp… ) ID ? Old value ? New value ? ? ? ? Log ? Log For messages: just message text and sequence # For records: old and new value on update Keep records small 26 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Transaction Is A Sequence Of Actions ? Each action changes state ? ? ? Changes database Sends messages Operates a display/printer/drill press Old state Old state Old state Old state DO Log Log DO New state New DO New state New DO New state New New state Log Log Log ? Leaves a log trail J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 27 Transaction UNDO Is Easy ? ? ? Read log backwards UNDO one step at a time Can go half-way back to get nested transactions Old state Old Old state New state New state UNDO New state Old Old state UNDO New Old state UNDO New state Log UNDO Log Log Log Log J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 28 Durability: Protecting The Log ? When transaction commits ? Put its log in a durable place (duplexed disk) ? Need log to redo transaction in case of failure ? System failure: lost in-memory updates Log LLog og Log Log LLog og Log Log Log Log Log Log LLog og ? Media failure (lost disk) ? ? This makes transaction durable Log is sequential file ? Converts random IO to single sequential IO ? See NTFS or newer UNIX file systems J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 W rit e 29 Recovery After System Failure ? ? During normal processing, write checkpoints on non -volatile storage When recovering from a system failure… ? return to the checkpoint state ? Reapply log of all committed transactions ? Force-at-commit insures log will survive restart ? Then UNDO all uncommitted transactions REDO Old state REDO New state New state Old Old state REDO REDO Log LogREDO Log Log Log Old state Old state New state New New state J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 30 Dealing with failure ? ? Idempotence What if fail during restart? ? REDO many times UNDO something not done What if new state not around at restart? ? Old state REDO Log New state REDO REDO Log Log New state New state UNDO Log Old state UNDO UNDO Log Log Old state J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 31 Dealing with failure ? Idempotence Solution: make F(F(x))=F(x) (idempotence) ? ? Discard duplicates ? Message sequence numbers to discard duplicates ? Use sequence numbers on pages to detect state (Or) make operations idempotent ? Move to position x, write value V to byte B… New state New state REDO REDO Log Log Log New state UNDO Log Log Old state UNDO UNDO Old state Old state REDO Log J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 32 The Log: More Detail ? Actions recorded in the Log Transaction writes an Object ? Store in the Log: Transaction Identifier, Object Identifier, new value and old value ? This must happen before actually writing the Object! ? Transaction commits or aborts ? ? ? Duplicate Log on “stable” storage Log records chained by Transaction Identifier: easy to undo a Transaction 33 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Structure of a Database ? Typical DBMS has a layered architecture Query Optimisation & Execution Relational Operators Files and Access Methods Buffer Management Disk Space Management Disk J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 34 Database Administration ? ? ? ? Design Logical/Physical Schema Handle Security and Authentication Ensure Data Availability, Crash Recovery Tune Database as needs and workload evolves J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 35 Summary ? ? ? ? ? Databases are used to maintain and query large datasets DBMS benefits include recovery from crashes, concurrent access, data integrity and security, quick application development Abstraction ensures independence ACID Increasingly Important (and Big) in Scientific and Commercial Enterprises 36 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Part 2 Part Distributed Databases . Julian Bunn California Institute of Technology Distributed Databases ? Data are stored at several locations ? Each managed by a DBMS that can run autonomously ? Ideally, location of data is unknown to client ? Distributed Data Independence ? Distributed Transactions are supported Clients can write Transactions regardless of where the affected data are located ? Distributed Transaction Atomicity ? Hard, and in some cases undesirable ? ? E.g. need to avoid overhead of ensuring location transparency 38 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Types of Distributed Database ? ? Homogeneous: Every site runs the same type of DBMS Heterogeneous: Different sites run different DBMS (maybe even RDBMS and ODBMS) J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 39 ? Client-Servers ? Distributed DBMS Architectures Client sends query to each database server in the distributed system ? Client caches and accumulates responses ? Collaborating Server Client sends query to “nearest” Server ? Server executes query locally ? Server sends query to other Servers, as required ? Server sends response to Client ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 40 Storing the Distributed Data ? In fragments at each site Split the data up ? Each site stores one or more fragments ? ? In complete replicas at each site ? Each site stores a replica of the complete data Each site stores some replicas and/or fragments or the data 41 ? A mixture of fragments and replicas ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Partitioned Data Break file into disjoint groups ? Exploit data access locality ? ? ? ? ? Orders N.A. S.A. Europe Asia Put data near consumer Less network traffic Better response time Better availability Owner controls data autonomy data or traffic may exceed single store 42 ? Spread Load ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 How to Partition Data? ? How to Partition ? ? ? ? by attribute or random or by source or by use Directory (replicated) or Algorithm N.A. S.A. Europe Asia ? Problem: to find it must have ? ? ? Encourages attribute -based partitioning J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 43 Replicated Data Place fragment at many sites ? Pros: + Improves availability + Disconnected (mobile) operation + Distributes load + Reads are cheaper Cons: ? N times more updates ? N times more storage Placement strategies: ? Dynamic: cache on demand ? Static: place specific Catalog ? ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 44 Fragmentation ? ? Horizontal – “Row-wise” ? E.g. rows of the table make up one fragment E.g. columns of the table make up one fragment Vertical – “Column-Wise” ?

Make synchronised or unsynchronised copies of data at servers Synchronised : data are always current, updates are constantly shipped between replicas ? Unsynchronised: good for read-only data ? ? ? Increases availability of data Makes query execution faster J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 46 Distributed Catalogue Management ? ? Need to know where data are distributed in the system At each site, need to name each replica of each data fragment ? “Local name”, “Birth Place” Describes all fragments and replicas at the site Keeps track of replicas of relations at the site To find a relation, look up Birth site’s catalogue: “Birth Place” site never changes, even if relation is moved 47 ? Site Catalogue: ? ? ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Replication Catalogue ? ? ? ? Which objects are being replicated Where objects are being replicated to How updates are propagated Catalogue is a set of tables that can be backed up, and recovered (as any other table) These tables are themselves replicated to each replication site ? ?

Need to join on ID Select IDs satisfying Particles constraint at Islamabad SUM(Energy) and Count(Energy) for those IDs at Geneva J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 52 Joins ? ? ? ? Joins are used to compare or combine relations (rows) from two or more tables, when the relations share a common attribute value Simple approach: for every relation in the first table “S”, loop over all relations in the other table “R”, and see if the attributes match N-way joins are evaluated as a series of 2-way joins Join Algorithms are a continuing topic of intense research in Computer Science 53 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Join Algorithms ? ? ? ? ? ? Need to run in memory for best performance Nested-Loops: efficient only if “R” very small (can be stored in memory) Hash-Join: Build an in-memory hash table of “R”, then loop over “S” hashing to check for match Hybrid Hash-Join: When “R” hash is too big to fit in memory, split join into partitions Merge-Join: Used when “R” and “S” are already sorted on the join attribute, simply merging them in parallel Special versions of Join Algorithms needed for Distributed Database query execution! 54 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Distributed Query Optimisation ? Cost-based: Consider all “plans” ? Pick cheapest: include communication costs ? ? ? Need to use distributed join methods Site that receives query constructs Global Plan, hints for local plans ? Local plans may be changed at each site 55 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Replication ? ? Synchronous: All data that have been changed must be propagated before the Transaction commits Asynchronous: Changed data are periodically sent Replicas may go out of sync. ? Clients must be aware of this ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 56 Synchronous Replication Costs ? Before an update Transaction can commit, it obtains locks on all modified copies Sends lock requests to remote sites, holds locks ? If links or remote sites fail, Transaction cannot commit until links/sites restored ? Even without failure, commit protocol is commit complex, and involves many messages ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 57 Asynchronous Replication ? ? Allows Transaction to commit before all copies have been modified Two methods: ? Primary Site Peer-to-Peer ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 58 Primary Site Replication One copy designated as “Master” ? Published to other sites who subscribe to “Secondary” copies ? Changes propagated to “Secondary” copies ? Done in two steps: ? Capture changes made by committed Transactions ? Apply these changes ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 59 The Capture Step ? Procedural: A procedure, automatically invoked, does the capture (takes a snapshot) Log-based: the log is used to generate a Change Data Table ? ? Better (cheaper and faster) but relies on proprietary log details J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 60 The Apply Step ? The Secondary site periodically obtains from the Primary site a snapshot or changes to the Change Data Table Updates its copy ? Period can be timer-based or defined by the user/application ? ? Log-based capture with continuous Apply minimises delays in propagating changes 61 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Peer to P Replication - - eer ? ? ? ? More than one copy can be “Master” Changes are somehow propagated to other copies Conflicting changes must be resolved So best when conflicts do not or cannot arise: Each “Master” owns a disjoint fragment or copy ? Update permission only granted to one “Master” at a time ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 62 Replication Examples ? Master copy, many slave copies (SQL Server) ? ? always know the correct value (master) change propagation can be ? transactional ? as soon as possible ? periodic ? on demand allows mobile (disconnected) updates updates propagated ASAP, periodic, on demand non-serializable colliding updates must be reconciled. hard to know “real” value 63 ? Symmetric, and anytime (Access) ? ? ? ? ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Data Warehousing and Replication ? Build giant “warehouses” of data from many sites ? Enable complex decision support queries over data from across an organisation ? Warehouses can be seen as an instance of asynchronous replication ? Source data is typically controlled by different DBMS: emphasis on “cleaning” data by removing mismatches while creating replicas ? Procedural Capture and application Apply work best for this environment 64 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Distributed Locking ? How to manage Locks across many sites? Centrally: one site does all locking ? Vulnerable to single site failure ? Primary Copy: all locking for an object done at the primary copy site for the object ? Reading requires access to locking site as well as site which stores object ? Fully Distributed: locking for a copy done at site where the copy is stored ? Locks at all sites while writing an object ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 65 Distributed Deadlock Detection ? ? Each site maintains a local “waits -for” graph Global deadlock might occur even if local graphs contain no cycles ? ? E.g. Site A holds lock on X, waits for lock on Y Site B holds lock on Y, waits for lock on X Centralised (send all local graphs to one site) Hierarchical (organise sites into hierarchy and send local graphs to parent) Timeout (abort Transaction if it waits too long) 66 ? Three solutions: ? ? ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Distributed Recovery ? ? ? ? Links and Remote Sites may crash/fail If sub-transactions of a Transaction execute at different sites, all or none must commit Need a commit protocol to achieve this Solution: Maintain a Log at each site of commit protocol actions ? Two-Phase Commit 67 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Two P - hase Commit ? ? Site which originates Transaction is coordinator, other sites involved in Transaction are subordinates When the Transaction needs to Commit: ? ? ? ? ? ? Coordinator sends “prepare” message to subordinates Subordinates each force-writes an abort or prepare Log abort or prepare record, and sends “yes” or “no” message to Coordinator If Coordinator gets unanimous “yes” messages, force-writes a commit Log record, and sends “commit” message to all commit subordinates Otherwise, force-writes an abort Log record, and sends abort “abort” message to all subordinates Subordinates force-write abort/commit Log record accordingly, then send an “ack” message to Coordinator Coordinator writes end Log record after receiving all acks end J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 68 Notes on Two P - hase Commit (2PC) ? ? ? ? First: voting, Second: termination – both initiated by Coordinator Any site can decide to abort the Transaction Every message is recorded in the local Log by the sender to ensure it survives failures All Commit Protocol log records for a Transaction contain the Transaction ID and Coordinator ID. The Coordinator’s abort/commit record also includes the Site IDs of all subordinates 69 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Restart after Site Failure ? If there is a commit or abort Log record for Transaction T, but no end record, then must undo/redo T ? If the site is Coordinator for T, then keep sending commit/abort messages to Subordinates until commit/abort acks received acks ? If there is a prepare Log record, but no commit or abort: ? ? This site is a Subordinate for T Contact Coordinator to find status of T, then ? write commit/abort Log record commit/abort ? Redo/undo T ? Write end Log record end 70 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Blocking ? ? ? If Coordinator for Transaction T fails, then Subordinates who have voted “yes” cannot decide whether to commit or abort until Coordinator commit abort until recovers! T is blocked blocked Even if all Subordinates are aware of one another (e.g. via extra information in “prepare” message) they are blocked ? Unless one of them voted “no” 71 J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 Link and Remote Site Failures ? If a Remote Site does not respond during the Commit Protocol for T ? E.g. it crashed or the link is down ? Then If current Site is Coordinator for T: abort ? If Subordinate and not yet voted “yes”: abort ?

Workflow is not Atomic or Isolated Results of a step visible to all Workflow is Consistent and Durable Each flow may take hours, weeks, months Workflow controller keeps flows moving ? maintains context (state) for each flow ? provides a query and operator interface e.g.: “what is the status of Job # 72149?” ? J.J.Bunn, Distributed Databases, 2001 117 ACID Objects Using ACID DBs The easy way to build transactional objects Application uses transactional objects (objects have ACID properties) If object built on top of ACID objects, then object is ACID. ? ? ?
