Transcript of "WS-VLAM workflow"

  1. 1. WS-VLAM Introduction <ul><ul><li>Systems and Network Engineering group </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Institute of informatics </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>University of Amsterdam </li></ul></ul>
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>This presentation gives a quick introduction to the WS-VLAM workflow management system </li></ul><ul><li>It helps the reader understand the technology push which motivated our design, describes the current state and present the ongoing activities and planned ones . </li></ul><ul><li>NOTE : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We are currently still working on the User’s and developer’s Guide, they are not available at this time . The presentations do not replace the documentation it just give a quick introduction. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Do not hesitate to contact us for further information </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Thanks for taking some of your time to read about the WS-VLAM work, any comments are more than welcome </li></ul><ul><li>WS-VLAM developers </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul>
  3. 3.

  5. 5. Outline <ul><li>Introduction </li></ul><ul><li>Architecture of the WS-VLAM </li></ul><ul><li>Hierarchical workflow compositions & execution </li></ul><ul><li>Interoperability with other WMS </li></ul><ul><li>Conclusions </li></ul>
  6. 6. GVLAM: <ul><li>Enable end-users (scientists) to define , execute , and monitor e-science applications. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Location independent experimentation. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Application Domain portal. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Provide application developers : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Abstract view of the Grid (shields the Grid details). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Easy way to port applications to the Grid. </li></ul></ul>

  13. 13. WS-VLAM WMS… <ul><li>Goals </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Create a WMS which adopt a Service Oriented Paradigm </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Approach </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Workflow Engine (RTSM) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Implemented as a WSRF service using Globus 4 (GT4) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Workflow Composer (GUI) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Thin client </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Repository for workflow components </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Implemented also as WSRF service. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Conclusions <ul><li>WSRF compliant middleware such as GT4 offers useful basic services to develop a truly grid enabled workflow engine: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Delegation service and ws-notification mechanisms proved to be very useful </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Separating the workflow composition from execution suits better the Grid environments and improve interoperability </li></ul><ul><li>OGSA-WG is collecting cases and input to decide which services should be standardized </li></ul>

  16. 16. New workflow Components ( Under development ) <ul><li>The workflow components developed the last year, can be still used and will be deployed on the shared workflow component repository on the rapid prototyping environment </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ridge-O-Grammar modules from (SP 1.5) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Kansk Toolbox from (SP 1.4) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>AID web services (SP 2.2) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Virtual file system Web service (SP 2.4) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Generic workflow components (SP 2.5) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>File Reader/Writer, </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>universal File Reader/Writer (SRB/GFTP/...) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Demos: MRIscanner, Histogram, Floatingball </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>We will contact other SPs to integrate their components </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Legacy code, or fully integrated code (java, C++, Python) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  17. 17. Current deployment & validation <ul><li>Current tests are performed on the rapid prototyping environment </li></ul><ul><ul><li>RTSM Service and Repository service are deployed on ds2a.das2.nikhef.nl </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ws-VLAM Client (3 MB) can be used only on ds2.das2.nikhef (because GT4 is only available on this node) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ws-VLAM client can also be used a host where Poc R1 is installed </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Tests will be performed on the validation environment for PoC R2 </li></ul>
  18. 18. Planned tasks <ul><li>Access to the ws-vlam engine from Taverna </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This will be developed in the context of a use case together with SP1.5 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Access to the ws-vlam engine from Kepler </li></ul><ul><li>Parameter sharing among workflow components </li></ul><ul><li>Job farming </li></ul><ul><li>Support for more than one job submission mechanisms (GT4-GRAM, Direct, etc) </li></ul><ul><li>Fault tolerance </li></ul><ul><li>Control flow </li></ul><ul><li>Data provenance </li></ul><ul><li>Semantic Service discovery </li></ul>
  19. 19. References and download <ul><li>VLAM client can be downloaded from </li></ul><ul><ul><li>www.science.uva.nl/~gvlam/wsvlam/ </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Documentation can be downloaded form ( TO BE DONE VERY SOON ) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>www.science.uva.nl/~gvlam/wsvlam/doc/ </li></ul></ul>
  20. 20. Workflow interoperability: Execute a VLAM workflow from Kepler/Taverna <ul><li>A predefined Application workflow developed in VLAM can be executed as a single step in Kepler/Taverna </li></ul><ul><ul><li>(no need to recompose graphically the whole workflow). </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The predefined Application workflow will be executed on any remote computing resource where the VLAM-RTSM GT4 Web service is installed. </li></ul><ul><li>Advantages: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Compose workflow where sub-workflows ( which require grid resources ) are executed on grid-enabled resources, while the rest of the workflow is either executed using other Kepler actors or taverna processors </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It is also more efficient , since it avoid the overhead which will result by wrapping every workflow component as a separated web service or a separate remote grid-execution. </li></ul></ul>
  21. 21. Workflow interoperability: Execute a VLAM workflow from Kepler/Taverna GRAM services GT4 Java Container RTSM Factory Delegation service Worker nodes pre-ws-GRAM RTSM Instance Workflow components Kepler/Taverna workbench RTSM Client Workfow Description (XML) Das2 or PoC facilities. <ul><li>Kepler/Taverna users can have access to some of the parameters of the Application workflow to change the default values </li></ul><ul><li>Kepler/Taverna users have to specify the location of the input data file as URL and will get back a URL if the Sigwin generate data files </li></ul><ul><li>Graphical output of the Application workflow are handled automatically by the VLAM Taverna processor /Kepler actor. </li></ul>RTSM-GT4 Web service VLAM Actor or Taverna processor (1) Proxy Delegate (2) Service Invocation
