Objectives Describe the physical structure of secondary and tertiary storage devices and the resulting effects on the uses of the devices Explain the performance characteristics of mass-storage devices Discuss operating-system services provided for mass storage, including RAID and HSM Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.3 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Overview of Mass Storage Structure Magnetic disks provide bulk of secondary storage of modern computers

Drives rotate at 60 to 250 times per second Transfer rate is rate at which data flow between drive and computer Positioning time (random-access time) is time to move disk arm to desired cylinder (seek time) and time for desired sector to rotate under the disk head (rotational latency) Head crash results from disk head making contact with the disk surface Thats bad Disks can be removable

Drive attached to computer via I/O bus Busses vary, including EIDE, ATA, SATA, USB, Fibre Channel, SCSI, SAS, Firewire Host controller in computer uses bus to talk to disk controller built into drive or storage array Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.4 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Magnetic Disks Platters range from .85 to 14 (historically) Commonly 3.5, 2.5, and 1.8

Range from 30GB to 3TB per drive Performance Transfer Rate theoretical 6 Gb/sec Effective Transfer Rate real 1Gb/sec Seek time from 3ms to 12ms 9ms common for desktop drives Average seek time measured or calculated based on 1/3 of tracks

Latency based on spindle speed 1/(RPM * 60) Average latency = latency (From Wikipedia) Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.5 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Magnetic Disk Performance Access Latency = Average access time = average seek time + average latency For fastest disk 3ms + 2ms = 5ms

For slow disk 9ms + 5.56ms = 14.56ms Average I/O time = average access time + (amount to transfer / transfer rate) + controller overhead For example to transfer a 4KB block on a 7200 RPM disk with a 5ms average seek time, 1Gb/sec transfer rate with a .1ms controller overhead = 5ms + 4.17ms + 4KB / 1Gb/sec + 0.1ms = 9.27ms + 4 / 131072 sec = 9.27ms + .12ms = 9.39ms Operating System Concepts 8th Edition

12.6 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Moving-head Disk Mechanism Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.7 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 The First Commercial Disk Drive 1956 IBM RAMDAC computer included the IBM Model 350 disk storage system 5M (7 bit) characters 50 x 24 platters Access time = < 1 second Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.8

Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Magnetic Tape Was early secondary-storage medium Evolved from open spools to cartridges Relatively permanent and holds large quantities of data Access time slow Random access ~1000 times slower than disk Mainly used for backup, storage of infrequently-used data, transfer medium between systems

Kept in spool and wound or rewound past read-write head Once data under head, transfer rates comparable to disk 140MB/sec and greater 200GB to 1.5TB typical storage Common technologies are LTO-{3,4,5} and T10000 Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.9 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009

Disk Structure Disk drives are addressed as large 1-dimensional arrays of logical blocks, where the logical block is the smallest unit of transfer The 1-dimensional array of logical blocks is mapped into the sectors of the disk sequentially Sector 0 is the first sector of the first track on the outermost cylinder Mapping proceeds in order through that track, then the rest of the tracks in that cylinder, and then through the rest of the cylinders from outermost to innermost Logical to physical address should be easy Except for bad sectors

Non-constant # of sectors per track via constant angular velocity Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.10 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Disk Attachment Host-attached storage accessed through I/O ports talking to I/O busses SCSI itself is a bus, up to 16 devices on one cable, SCSI initiator requests operation and SCSI targets perform tasks FC is high-speed serial architecture

Each target can have up to 8 logical units (disks attached to device controller) Can be switched fabric with 24-bit address space the basis of storage area networks (SANs) in which many hosts attach to many storage units I/O directed to bus ID, device ID, logical unit (LUN) Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.11 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Storage Array Can just attach disks, or arrays of disks Storage Array has controller(s), provides features to attached host(s)

Ports to connect hosts to array Memory, controlling software (sometimes NVRAM, etc) A few to thousands of disks RAID, hot spares, hot swap (discussed later) Shared storage -> more efficiency Features found in some file systems

Snaphots, clones, thin provisioning, replication, deduplication, etc Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.12 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Storage Area Network Common in large storage environments Multiple hosts attached to multiple storage arrays - flexible Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.13 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Storage Area Network (Cont.)

SAN is one or more storage arrays Connected to one or more Fibre Channel switches Hosts also attach to the switches Storage made available via LUN Masking from specific arrays to specific servers Easy to add or remove storage, add new host and allocate it storage Over low-latency Fibre Channel fabric Why have separate storage networks and communications networks?

Consider iSCSI, FCOE Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.14 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Network-Attached Storage Network-attached storage (NAS) is storage made available over a network rather than over a local connection (such as a bus) Remotely attaching to file systems NFS and CIFS are common protocols Implemented via remote procedure calls (RPCs) between host and storage over typically TCP or UDP on

IP network iSCSI protocol uses IP network to carry the SCSI protocol Remotely attaching to devices (blocks) Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.15 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Disk Scheduling The operating system is responsible for using hardware efficiently for the disk drives, this means having a fast access time and disk bandwidth Minimize seek time

Seek time seek distance Disk bandwidth is the total number of bytes transferred, divided by the total time between the first request for service and the completion of the last transfer Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.16 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Disk Scheduling (Cont.) There are many sources of disk I/O request OS

System processes Users processes I/O request includes input or output mode, disk address, memory address, number of sectors to transfer OS maintains queue of requests, per disk or device Idle disk can immediately work on I/O request, busy disk means work must queue Optimization algorithms only make sense when a queue exists Note that drive controllers have small buffers and can manage a queue of I/O requests (of varying depth)

Several algorithms exist to schedule the servicing of disk I/O requests The analysis is true for one or many platters We illustrate scheduling algorithms with a request queue (0-199) 98, 183, 37, 122, 14, 124, 65, 67 Head pointer 53 Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.17 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 FCFS Illustration shows total head movement of 640 cylinders Operating System Concepts 8th Edition

12.18 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 SSTF Shortest Seek Time First selects the request with the minimum seek time from the current head position SSTF scheduling is a form of SJF scheduling; may cause starvation of some requests Illustration shows total head movement of 236 cylinders Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.19 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 SSTF (Cont.)

Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.20 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 SCAN The disk arm starts at one end of the disk, and moves toward the other end, servicing requests until it gets to the other end of the disk, where the head movement is reversed and servicing continues. SCAN algorithm Sometimes called the elevator algorithm Illustration shows total head movement of 208 cylinders But note that if requests are uniformly dense, largest density at other end of disk and those wait the longest Operating System Concepts 8th Edition

12.21 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 SCAN (Cont.) Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.22 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 C-SCAN Provides a more uniform wait time than SCAN The head moves from one end of the disk to the other, servicing requests as it goes When it reaches the other end, however, it immediately returns to the beginning of the disk, without servicing any requests on the return trip

Treats the cylinders as a circular list that wraps around from the last cylinder to the first one Total number of cylinders? Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.23 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 C-SCAN (Cont.) Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.24 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 C-LOOK

LOOK a version of SCAN, C-LOOK a version of C-SCAN Arm only goes as far as the last request in each direction, then reverses direction immediately, without first going all the way to the end of the disk Total number of cylinders? Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.25 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 C-LOOK (Cont.) Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.26 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009

Selecting a Disk-Scheduling Algorithm SSTF is common and has a natural appeal SCAN and C-SCAN perform better for systems that place a heavy load on the disk Less starvation Performance depends on the number and types of requests Requests for disk service can be influenced by the file-allocation method And metadata layout

The disk-scheduling algorithm should be written as a separate module of the operating system, allowing it to be replaced with a different algorithm if necessary Either SSTF or LOOK is a reasonable choice for the default algorithm What about rotational latency? Difficult for OS to calculate How does disk-based queuing effect OS queue ordering efforts? Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.27 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009

Disk Management Low-level formatting, or physical formatting Dividing a disk into sectors that the disk controller can read and write Each sector can hold header information, plus data, plus error correction code (ECC) Usually 512 bytes of data but can be selectable To use a disk to hold files, the operating system still needs to record its own data structures on the disk Partition the disk into one or more groups of cylinders, each treated as a logical disk

Logical formatting or making a file system To increase efficiency most file systems group blocks into clusters Disk I/O done in blocks File I/O done in clusters Boot block initializes system The bootstrap is stored in ROM Bootstrap loader program stored in boot blocks of boot partition Methods such as sector sparing used to handle bad blocks

Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.28 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Booting from a Disk in Windows 2000 Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.29 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Swap-Space Management Swap-space Virtual memory uses disk space as an extension of main memory Less common now due to memory capacity increases Swap-space can be carved out of the normal file system, or, more commonly, it can be in a separate disk

partition (raw) Swap-space management 4.3BSD allocates swap space when process starts; holds text segment (the program) and data segment Kernel uses swap maps to track swap-space use Solaris 2 allocates swap space only when a dirty page is forced out of physical memory, not when the virtual memory page is first created File data written to swap space until write to file system requested Other dirty pages go to swap space due to no other home

Text segment pages thrown out and reread from the file system as needed What if a system runs out of swap space? Some systems allow multiple swap spaces Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.30 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Data Structures for Swapping on Linux Systems Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.31

Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 RAID Structure RAID multiple disk drives provides reliability via redundancy Increases the mean time to failure Frequently combined with NVRAM to improve write performance RAID is arranged into six different levels Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.32 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009

RAID (Cont.) Several improvements in disk-use techniques involve the use of multiple disks working cooperatively Disk striping uses a group of disks as one storage unit RAID schemes improve performance and improve the reliability of the storage system by storing redundant data Mirroring or shadowing (RAID 1) keeps duplicate of each disk Striped mirrors (RAID 1+0) or mirrored stripes (RAID 0+1) provides high performance and high reliability

Block interleaved parity (RAID 4, 5, 6) uses much less redundancy RAID within a storage array can still fail if the array fails, so automatic replication of the data between arrays is common Frequently, a small number of hot-spare disks are left unallocated, automatically replacing a failed disk and having data rebuilt onto them Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.33 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 RAID Levels Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.34 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009

RAID (0 + 1) and (1 + 0) Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.35 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Extensions RAID alone does not prevent or detect data corruption or other errors, just disk failures Solaris ZFS adds checksums of all data and metadata Checksums kept with pointer to object, to detect if object is the right one and whether it changed Can detect and correct data and metadata corruption

ZFS also removes volumes, partititions Disks allocated in pools Filesystems with a pool share that pool, use and release space like malloc and free memory allocate / release calls Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.36 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 ZFS Checksums All Metadata and Data Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.37

Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Traditional and Pooled Storage Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.38 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Stable-Storage Implementation Write-ahead log scheme requires stable storage To implement stable storage: Replicate information on more than one nonvolatile storage media with independent failure modes Update information in a controlled manner to ensure that we can recover the stable data after any

failure during data transfer or recovery Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.39 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Tertiary Storage Devices Low cost is the defining characteristic of tertiary storage Generally, tertiary storage is built using removable media Common examples of removable media are floppy disks and CD-ROMs; other types are available Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.40

Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Removable Disks Floppy disk thin flexible disk coated with magnetic material, enclosed in a protective plastic case Most floppies hold about 1 MB; similar technology is used for removable disks that hold more than 1 GB Removable magnetic disks can be nearly as fast as hard disks, but they are at a greater risk of damage from exposure Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.41 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Removable Disks (Cont.)

A magneto-optic disk records data on a rigid platter coated with magnetic material Laser heat is used to amplify a large, weak magnetic field to record a bit Laser light is also used to read data (Kerr effect) The magneto-optic head flies much farther from the disk surface than a magnetic disk head, and the magnetic material is covered with a protective layer of plastic or glass; resistant to head crashes Optical disks do not use magnetism; they employ special materials that are altered by laser light Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.42 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 WORM Disks

The data on read-write disks can be modified over and over WORM (Write Once, Read Many Times) disks can be written only once Thin aluminum film sandwiched between two glass or plastic platters To write a bit, the drive uses a laser light to burn a small hole through the aluminum; information can be destroyed by not altered Very durable and reliable Read-only disks, such ad CD-ROM and DVD, com from the factory with the data pre-recorded

Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.43 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Tapes Compared to a disk, a tape is less expensive and holds more data, but random access is much slower. Tape is an economical medium for purposes that do not require fast random access, e.g., backup copies of disk data, holding huge volumes of data. Large tape installations typically use robotic tape changers that move tapes between tape drives and storage slots in a tape library

stacker library that holds a few tapes silo library that holds thousands of tapes A disk-resident file can be archived to tape for low cost storage; the computer can stage it back into disk storage for active use. Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.44 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Operating System Support Major OS jobs are to manage physical devices and to present a virtual machine abstraction to applications For hard disks, the OS provides two abstraction:

Raw device an array of data blocks File system the OS queues and schedules the interleaved requests from several applications Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.45 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Application Interface Most OSs handle removable disks almost exactly like fixed disks a new cartridge is formatted and an empty file system is generated on the disk Tapes are presented as a raw storage medium, i.e., and application does not not open a file on the tape, it opens the whole tape drive as a raw device

Usually the tape drive is reserved for the exclusive use of that application Since the OS does not provide file system services, the application must decide how to use the array of blocks Since every application makes up its own rules for how to organize a tape, a tape full of data can generally only be used by the program that created it Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.46 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Tape Drives The basic operations for a tape drive differ from those of a disk drive

locate()positions the tape to a specific logical block, not an entire track (corresponds to seek()) The read position()operation returns the logical block number where the tape head is The space()operation enables relative motion Tape drives are append-only devices; updating a block in the middle of the tape also effectively erases everything beyond that block An EOT mark is placed after a block that is written Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.47 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009

File Naming The issue of naming files on removable media is especially difficult when we want to write data on a removable cartridge on one computer, and then use the cartridge in another computer. Contemporary OSs generally leave the name space problem unsolved for removable media, and depend on applications and users to figure out how to access and interpret the data. Some kinds of removable media (e.g., CDs) are so well standardized that all computers use them the same way. Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.48 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM)

A hierarchical storage system extends the storage hierarchy beyond primary memory and secondary storage to incorporate tertiary storage usually implemented as a jukebox of tapes or removable disks. Usually incorporate tertiary storage by extending the file system Small and frequently used files remain on disk Large, old, inactive files are archived to the jukebox HSM is usually found in supercomputing centers and other large installations that have enormous volumes of data. Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.49

Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Speed Two aspects of speed in tertiary storage are bandwidth and latency. Bandwidth is measured in bytes per second. Sustained bandwidth average data rate during a large transfer; # of bytes/transfer time Data rate when the data stream is actually flowing Effective bandwidth average over the entire I/O time, including seek() or locate(), and cartridge switching Drives overall data rate Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.50

Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Speed (Cont.) Access latency amount of time needed to locate data Access time for a disk move the arm to the selected cylinder and wait for the rotational latency; < 35 milliseconds Access on tape requires winding the tape reels until the selected block reaches the tape head; tens or hundreds of seconds Generally say that random access within a tape cartridge is about a thousand times slower than random access on disk The low cost of tertiary storage is a result of having many cheap cartridges share a few expensive drives

A removable library is best devoted to the storage of infrequently used data, because the library can only satisfy a relatively small number of I/O requests per hour Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.51 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Reliability A fixed disk drive is likely to be more reliable than a removable disk or tape drive An optical cartridge is likely to be more reliable than a magnetic disk or tape A head crash in a fixed hard disk generally destroys the data, whereas the failure of a tape drive or optical disk drive often leaves the data cartridge unharmed

Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.52 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Cost Main memory is much more expensive than disk storage The cost per megabyte of hard disk storage is competitive with magnetic tape if only one tape is used per drive The cheapest tape drives and the cheapest disk drives have had about the same storage capacity over the years Tertiary storage gives a cost savings only when the number of cartridges is considerably larger than the number of drives

Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.53 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Price per Megabyte of DRAM From 1981 to 2004 Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.54 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 Price per Megabyte of Magnetic Hard Disk From 1981 to 2004 Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.55 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009

Price per Megabyte of a Tape Drive From 1984-2000 Operating System Concepts 8th Edition 12.56 Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009 End of Chapter 12 Operating System Concepts 8th Edition Silberschatz, Galvin and Gagne 2009
