  1. 1. Design Problem Distributed Database Systems Fall 2012 Design problem of distributed systems: Making decisions about the placement of data and programs across the sites of a computer Distributed Database Design network as well as possibly designing the network itself. SL02 In DDBMS, the distribution of applications involves Distribution of the DDBMS software Distribution of applications that run on the database Distribution of applications will not be considered in the following; Design problem instead the distribution of data is studied. Design strategies (top-down, bottom-up) Fragmentation (horizontal, vertical) Allocation and replication of fragments, optimality, heuristics DDBS12, SL02 1/60 ¨ M. Bohlen DDBS12, SL02 2/60 ¨ M. BohlenFramework of Distribution Design Strategies/1 Dimension for the analysis of distributed systems Level of sharing: no sharing, data sharing, data + program sharing Behavior of access patterns: static, dynamic Level of knowledge on access pattern behavior: no information, partial information, complete information Top-down approach Designing systems from scratch Homogeneous systems Bottom-up approach The databases already exist at a number of sites The databases should be connected to solve common tasks Distributed database design should be considered within this general framework.

  2. 2. Design Strategies/2 Design Strategies/3 Top-down design strategy Distribution design is the central part of the design in DDBMSs (the other tasks are similar to traditional databases). Objective: Design the LCSs by distributing the data over the sites. Two main aspects have to be designed carefully: Fragmentation: Relation may be divided into a number of sub-relations, which are distributed Allocation and replication: Each fragment is stored at site(s) with ”optimal” distribution Distribution design issues Why fragment at all? How to fragment? How much to fragment? How to test correctness? How to allocate? DDBS12, SL02 5/60 ¨ M. Bohlen DDBS12, SL02 6/60 ¨ M. BohlenDesign Strategies/4 Fragmentation/1 Bottom-up design strategy What is a reasonable unit of distribution? Relation or fragment of relation? Relations as unit of distribution: If the relation is not replicated, we get a high volume of remote data accesses. If the relation is replicated, we get unnecessary replications, which cause problems in executing updates and waste disk space Might be an OK solution, if queries need all the data in the relation and data stays only at the sites that use the data Fragments of relation as unit of distribution: Application views are usually subsets of relations Thus, locality of accesses of applications is defined on subsets of relations Permits a number of transactions to execute concurrently, since they will access different portions of a relation Parallel execution of a single query (intra-query concurrency) However, semantic data control (especially integrity enforcement) is more difficult ⇒ Fragments of relations are (usually) appropriate unit of distribution.

  3. 3. Fragmentation/2 Fragmentation/3 Types of Fragmentation Horizontal: partitions a relation along its tuples Fragmentation aims to improve: Vertical: partitions a relation along its attributes Mixed/hybrid: a combination of horizontal and vertical fragmentation Reliability Performance Balanced storage capacity and costs Communication costs Security The following information is used to decide fragmentation: Quantitative information: cardinality of relations, frequency of queries, (a) Horizontal Fragmentation site where query is run, selectivity of the queries, etc. Qualitative information: predicates in queries, types of access of data, read/write, etc. (b) Vertical Fragmentation (c) Mixed Fragmentation DDBS12, SL02 9/60 ¨ M. Bohlen DDBS12, SL02 10/60 ¨ M. BohlenFragmentation/4 Fragmentation/5 Example of database instance Example (contd.): Horizontal fragmentation of PROJ relation PROJ1: projects with budgets less than 200 000 PROJ2: projects with budgets greater than or equal to 200 000 Data DDBS12, SL02 11/60 ¨ M. Bohlen DDBS12, SL02 12/60 ¨ M. Bohlen
  4. 4. Fragmentation/6 Correctness Rules of Fragmentation Example (contd.): Vertical fragmentation of PROJ relation PROJ1: information about project budgets Completeness PROJ2: information about project names and locations Decomposition of relation R into fragments R1 , R2 , . . . , Rn is complete iff each data item in R can also be found in some Ri . Reconstruction If relation R is decomposed into fragments R1 , R2 , . . . , Rn , then there should exist some relational operator that reconstructs R from its fragments, i.e., R = R1 . . . Rn Union to combine horizontal fragments Join to combine vertical fragments Disjointness If relation R is decomposed into fragments R1 , R2 , . . . , Rn and data item di appears in fragment Rj , then di should not appear in any other fragment Rk , k j (exception: primary key attribute for vertical fragmentation) For horizontal fragmentation, data item is a tuple For vertical fragmentation, data item is an attribute DDBS12, SL02 13/60 ¨ M. Bohlen DDBS12, SL02 14/60 ¨ M. BohlenIdea of Horizontal Fragmentation Information Requirements/1 Database information: Links between relations (a link models a 1:N relationship between Intuition behind horizontal fragmentation relations that are related to each other by an equality join) Every site should hold all information that is used to query the site The information at the site should be fragmented so the queries of the site run faster Horizontal fragmentation is defined as selection operation, σp (R ) Example: σBUDGET <200K (PROJ ) σBUDGET ≥200K (PROJ ) Links (one to many) Cardinality of relations: card(R) DDBS12, SL02 15/60 ¨ M.

  5. 5. Information Requirements/2 02.1 Information Requirements/3 02.2Application information: Simple predicates used in queries Relation R [A1 , A2 , ..., An ] Ai θvi a simple predicate (θ ∈ {=, <, ≤, >, ≥, }, vi ∈ Di , Di is the Application information (cnt’d): domain of Ai ) Minterm selectivities For relation R we define Pr = {p1 , p2 , ..., pm } The number of tuples of the relation that would be accessed by a user Example: PNAME = ”Maintenance”, BUDGET < 200000 query, which is specified according to a given minterm predicate mi . Minterm predicates Access frequencies minterm predicates are conjunctions of simple predicates The frequency with which a user application qi accesses data. Relation R, Pr = {p1 , p2 , ..., pm } M = {m1 , m2 , ..., mr } such that M = {mi | mi = ∧pj ∈Pr pj ∗}, 1 ≤ j ≤ m, 1 ≤ i ≤ z where pj ∗ = pj or pj ∗ = ¬pj DDBS12, SL02 17/60 ¨ M. Bohlen DDBS12, SL02 18/60 ¨ M. BohlenHorizontal Fragmentation/1 Horizontal Fragmentation/2 A horizontal fragment Ri of relation R consists of all the tuples of R thatWe write Pr to denote the complete and minimal set of simple satisfy a predicate Fj :predicates generated from Pr: Rj = σFj (R ), 1 ≤ j ≤ w The set of predicates is complete if and only if any two tuples in the same fragment are referenced with the same probability by any where Fj is a selection formula, which is (preferably) a minterm predicate. application The set of predicates is minimal if and only if each simple predicate Computing the horizontal fragmentation: is relevant for determining the fragmentation and for each pair of 1.

  6. 6. Horizontal Fragmentation/3 Horizontal Fragmentation/4 Example: Fragmentation of the PROJ relation Consider the following query: Find the name and budget of projects given their location. If access is only according to the location, the above set of The query is issued at all three locations predicates is complete Fragmentation based on LOC, using the set of predicates i.e., in each fragment PROJi each tuple has the same probability of {LOC = ‘Montreal ‘, LOC = ‘NewYork ‘, LOC = ‘Paris ‘} being accessed If there is a second query/application that accesses only those PROJ1 = σLOC =‘Montreal ‘ (PROJ ) PROJ2 = σLOC =‘NewYork ‘ (PROJ ) project tuples where the budget is less than $200K, the set of PNO PNAME BUDGET LOC PNO PNAME BUDGET LOC predicates is not complete.

  7. 7. Derived Horizontal Fragmentation/1 02.5 Derived Horizontal Fragmentation/2 Defined on a member (target) relation of a link according to a selection operation specified on its owner (source). Given a link L where owner (L ) = S and member (L ) = R, the Each link is an equijoin. derived horizontal fragments of R are defined as Fragments of member relation can be defined with a semijoin on fragments of owner relation. Ri = R |>< Si , 1 ≤ i ≤ w where w is the maximum number of fragments that will be defined on R and Si = σFi (S ) where Fi is the formula according to which the primary horizontal fragment Si is defined. DDBS12, SL02 25/60 ¨ M. Bohlen DDBS12, SL02 26/60 ¨ M. BohlenDerived Horizontal Fragmentation/3 02.7 Vertical Fragmentation/1 Objective of vertical fragmentation is to partition a relation into a set of smaller relations so that many of the applications will run on only one fragment. Given link L 1 where Vertical fragmentation of a relation R produces fragments owner (L 1) = PAY and R1 , R2 , . . . , each of which contains a subset of R’s attributes. member (L 1) = EMP Vertical fragmentation is defined using the projection operation of and the relational algebra: PAY 1 = σSAL ≤30000 (PAY ) πA1 ,A2 ,...,An (R ) PAY 2 = σSAL >30000 (PAY ) we get EMP1 = EMP |>< PAY 1 Example: EMP2 = EMP |>< PAY 2 PROJ1 = πPNO ,BUDGET (PROJ ) PROJ2 = πPNO ,PNAME ,LOC (PROJ ) Vertical fragmentation has also been studied for (centralized) DBMS Smaller relations, and hence less page accesses e.g., MONET system DDBS12, SL02 27/60 ¨ M. Bohlen DDBS12, SL02 28/60 ¨ M. Bohlen
  8. 8. Vertical Fragmentation/2 Vertical Fragmentation/3 Two types of heuristics for vertical fragmentation exist: Vertical fragmentation is more complicated than horizontal Grouping: assign each attribute to one fragment, and at each step, fragmentation join some of the fragments until some criteria is satisfied. In horizontal partitioning: for n simple predicates, the number of Bottom-up approach possible minterms is 2n ; some of them can be ruled out by existing Splitting: starts with a relation and decides on beneficial partitionings implications/constraints. based on the access behaviour of applications to the attributes. In vertical partitioning: for m non-primary key attributes, the number of possible fragments is equal to B (m) (= the mth Bell number), i.e., Top-down approach the number of partitions of a set with m members. Results in non-overlapping fragments For large numbers, B (m) ≈ mm (e.g., B (15) = 109 ) Optimal solution is probably closer to the full relation than to a set of small relations with only one attribute DDBS12, SL02 29/60 ¨ M. Bohlen DDBS12, SL02 30/60 ¨ M. BohlenVertical Fragmentation/4 Vertical Fragmentation/5 Given are the user queries/applications Q = (q1 , . . . , qq ) that will Application information: The major information required as input run on relation R (A1 , . . . , An ) for vertical fragmentation is related to applications (queries) Attribute Usage Matrix: Denotes which query uses which attribute: Since vertical fragmentation places in one fragment those attributes usually accessed together, there is a need for some measure that 1 iff qi uses Aj would define more precisely the notion of “togetherness”, i.e., how use (qi , Aj ) = 0 otherwise closely related the attributes are. This information is obtained from queries and collected in the Attribute Usage Matrix and Attribute Affinity Matrix. The use (qi , •) vectors for each application are easy to define if the designer knows the applications that willl run on the DB (consider also the 80-20 rule) DDBS12, SL02 31/60 ¨ M.

  9. 9. Vertical Fragmentation/6 02.8 Vertical Fragmentation/7 Example: Consider relation PROJ (PNO , PNAME , BUDGET , LOC ) and queries: q1 = SELECT BUDGET FROM PROJ WHERE PNO=Value Attribute Affinity Matrix: Denotes the frequency of two attributes Ai q2 = SELECT PNAME,BUDGET FROM PROJ and Aj with respect to a set of queries Q = (q1 , . . . , qn ): q3 = SELECT PNAME FROM PROJ WHERE LOC=Value aff (Ai , Aj ) = ( ref l (qk ) ∗ acc l (qk )) q4 = SELECT SUM(BUDGET) FROM PROJ WHERE LOC =Value use (q ,A )=1, k : use (qk ,Ai )=1 sites l k j Abbreviations: A1 = PNO , A2 = PNAME , A3 = BUDGET , A4 = LOC where Attribute Usage Matrix ref l (qk ) is the cost (= number of accesses to (Ai , Aj )) of query qK at site l acc l (qk ) is the frequency of query qk at site l DDBS12, SL02 33/60 ¨ M. Bohlen DDBS12, SL02 34/60 ¨ M. BohlenVertical Fragmentation/8 Vertical Fragmentation/9 Example (contd.): Let the cost of each query be ref l (qk ) = 1, and the frequency acc l (qk ) of the queries be as follows: Site1 Site2 Site3 acc1 (q1 ) = 15 acc2 (q1 ) = 20 acc3 (q1 ) = 10 Idea: Take the attribute affinity matrix (AA) and reorganize the acc1 (q2 ) = 5 acc2 (q2 ) = 0 acc3 (q2 ) = 0 attribute orders to form clusters where the attributes in each cluster acc1 (q3 ) = 25 acc2 (q3 ) = 25 acc3 (q3 ) = 25 demonstrate high affinity to one another. acc1 (q4 ) = 3 acc2 (q4 ) = 0 acc3 (q4 ) = 0 Bond energy algorithm (BEA) has been suggested for that purpose for several reasons: Attribute affinity matrix aff (Ai , Aj ) = It is designed specifically to determine groups of similar items as opposed to a linear ordering of the items. The final groupings are insensitive to the order in which items are presented. The computation time is reasonable (O (n2 ), where n is the number of attributes) e.g., aff (A1 , A3 ) = 1 =1 3=1 acc l (qk ) = k l acc 1 (q1 ) + acc 2 (q1 ) + acc 3 (q1 ) = 45 (q1 is the only query to access both A1 and A3 ) DDBS12, SL02 35/60 ¨ M.

  10. 10. Vertical Fragmentation/10 Vertical Fragmentation/11 Example (contd.): Cluster Affinity Matrix CA after running BEA BEA: Input: AA matrix Output: Clustered AA matrix (CA) Permutation is done in such a way to maximize the following global affinity mesaure (affinity of Ai and Aj with their neighbors): n n Elements with similar values are grouped together, and two clusters can be identified AM = aff(Ai , Aj )[aff(Ai , Aj −1 ) + aff(Ai , Aj +1 ) + An additional partitioning algorithm is needed to identify the clusters i =1 j =1 in CA aff(Ai −1 , Aj ) + aff(Ai +1 , Aj )] Usually more clusters and more than one candidate partitioning, thus additional steps are needed to select the best clustering. The resulting fragmentation after partitioning (PNO is added in PROJ2 explicilty as key): PROJ1 = {PNO , BUDGET } PROJ2 = {PNO , PNAME , LOC } DDBS12, SL02 37/60 ¨ M. Bohlen DDBS12, SL02 38/60 ¨ M. BohlenBEA Algorithm/1 BEA Algorithm/2 In order to determine the best placement we define the contribution of a placement. Contribution of a placement: Input: The AA matrix Output: Clustered affinity matrix CA which is a permutation of AA cont (Ai , Ak , Aj ) = 2 ∗ bond (Ai , Ak )+ Initialization: Place and fix one of the columns of AA in CA (we 2 ∗ bond (Ak , Aj )− choose column 1 in our example) 2 ∗ bond (Ai , Aj ) Iteration: Place the remaining n-i columns in the remaining i+1 positions in the CA matrix. For each column choose the placement that makes the largest contribution to the global affinity measure. Bond between a pair of attributes is defined as: Row order: Order the rows according to the column ordering. bond (Ax , Ay ) = n aff (Az , Ax ) ∗ aff (Az , Ay ) z =1 DDBS12, SL02 39/60 ¨ M.
