Fig.7. (a)Numberofdisjointclusters,asaresultofremovingalargepercentageofnodes.Shows that the overlay does not break into two or more disjoint clusters, unless a major percentage of the nodes are removed. (b) Number of nodes not belonging to the largest cluster. Shows that in the first steps of clustering only a few nodes are separated from the main cluster, which still connects the grand majority of the nodes.
Note that the graph for the experiment with cache size 100 is practically a flat line. That is, for 100,000 nodes and cache size 100, the overlay created is so robust, that no matter how many nodes are removed, the remaining ones remain connected in a single cluster.
In-degreedistributioninconverged100,000nodeoverlay,forbasicshuffling,enhanced shuffling, and an overlay where each node has c randomly chosen outgoing links. t is, however, clear that enhanced shuffling does a significantly better job with respect to spreading out the links extremely evenly across all nodes. For the experiment with cache size 20, 80.31% of the nodes have an in-degree of 20 ± 5%. For the experiment with cache size 50, 93.95% of the nodes have an in-degree of 50 ± 5%. The respective percentages for basic shuffling are 36.22 and 38.47%.
This is an average case analysis. In reality, there are noise terms in this recurrence as we pick a node whose degree is only approximately d(N). In order to prove that the argument is correct in the presence of this noise, we need to control the variance of that noise (and invoke the martingale convergence theorem!).

Scalable membership management
Scalable membership management and failure detection? Vinay Setty INF5360
What is Gossiping?• Spread of information in a random manner• Some examples: – Human gossiping – Epidemic diseases – Physical phenomenon: wild fire, diffusion etc – Computer viruses and worms
Gossiping in Computer Science• Term first coined by Demers et al (1987)• Some applications of gossip protocols – Peer Sampling – Data Aggregation – Clustering – Information Dissemination (Multicast, Pub/Sub) – Overlay/topology – Maintenance – Failure detection?
Today’s Focus• Theoretical angle for Gossip-based protocols [Allavena et al PODC 2005] – Probability of partitioning – Time till partitioning – Bounds on in-degree – Essential elements of gossiping – Simulation results• Cyclon [Voulgaris et al]• Scamp [Ganesh et al]• NewsCast [Jelasity et al]
Membership Service• Full Membership – Complete knowledge at each node – Random subset used for gossiping – Not scalable – Hard to maintain• Partial Membership – Random subset at each node – Gossip partners chosen from local view
View Selection L1 s s,p,r p v s,p,t u r t t,q,r q L2 L1 L2v Weighted with w
Essential Elements of Gossiping• Mixing: Construct a list L1 consisting of local views of local view of node u – Guarantees non partitioning – “Pull” based• Reinforcement: Construct a list L2 consisting of local views of nodes that requested local view of u – Balances network – removes old possibly dead edges, adds new edges
Partitioning and Size Estimate• A and B partition iff x=1 and y=0• Partitioning is least possible when x=y• Goal of protocol is to maintain this balance
Size Estimates• Idea: – Assuming edges were drawn uniformly randomly, expected x+y |A| – x is estimate of size of A by nodes in A – y is estimate of size of A by nodes in B• Mixing: – Agreeing on estimation of x and y ensures no partition (even if x and y are not accurate)• Reinforcement: – Brings estimation of x and y to correct value
K-regularity• View Size: k• Number of nodes: n• Fraction of nodes in partition: γ• |A|= γn ≤ |B|• #edges from A to B: (1-x)γkn• #edges from B to A: y (1-γ)kn• Number of edges in A-B cut: – (1-x)γkn +x (1-γ)kn (since x=y) – ≥ γkn (assuming γ≤½)
Time Till Partitioning• View Size: k• Number of nodes: n• Fraction of nodes in partition: γ• Churn rate: μ (μn nodes leave and join)• Claim: Expected time before a partition of size γ happens ≈ 2γkn – As long as μ≪γkn

Simplified Model for Proof– Single randomly chosen element from view is replaced instead of whole views– Assumption: The out-edges of nodes of A are identically distributed and same applies to B– a = #edges from A to A– c = #edges from A to B– b = #edges from B to A– d = #edges from B to B
Proof IntuitionPartition state: a = γkn and b = 0
In-Degree Analysis• Load balancing requires balance in in-degree distribution• In-degree is governed by the way edges created, copied and destroyed• Copying some edges more than others cause variability in in-degree• Node living longer is expected to have higher in- degree• Solution: Increase reinforcement and keep track of timestamps like in Cyclon• Simulation: max in-degree < 4.5 times of random graph and standard deviation < 3.2 times
Discussion• Are these theoretical guarantees practically useful?• Goal is not provide failure detection
Cyclon• Consists of same elements as suggested by [Allavena et al PODC 2005]• [Allavena et al PODC 2005] Analysis holds for Cyclon• Major differences: – Timestamps – shuffling
Basic Shuffling• Select a random subset of l neighbors (1 ≤ l ≤ c) from P’s own cache, and a random peer, Q, within this subset, where l is a system parameter, called shuffle length.• Replace Q’s address with P’s address.• Send the updated subset to Q.• Receive from Q a subset of no more than l of Q’s neighbors.• Discard entries pointing to P, and entries that are already in P’s cache.• Update P’s cache to include all remaining entries, by – firstly using empty cache slots (if any), and – secondly replacing entries among the ones originally sent to Q.
Enhanced Shuffling• Increase by one the age of all neighbors.• Select neighbor Q with the highest age among all neighbors, and l − 1 other random neighbors.• Replace Q’s entry with a new entry of age 0 and with P’s address.• Send the updated subset to peer Q.• Receive from Q a subset of no more that l of its own entries.• Discard entries pointing at P and entries already contained in P’s cache.• Update P’s cache to include all remaining entries, by firstly using empty• cache slots (if any), and secondly replacing entries among the ones sent to Q.
removed. Note that the number of clusters decreases as we approach 100% noderemoval because the total number of surviving nodes becomes too small. Fig- Number of Clustersure 7(b) shows the number of nodes not belonging to the largest cluster, in logscale. These graphs show considerable robustness to node failures, especially con-sidering the fact that in the early stages of clustering very few nodes are out ofthe largest cluster, which indicates that most nodes are still connected in a singleFig. 7.

SCAMP• Partial knowledge of the membership: local view• Fanout automatically set = size of the local view• Fanout evolves naturally with the size of the group – Size of local views converges towards C.log(n)

Load Balancing• Indirection: – Forward the subscription instead of handling request• Lease associated with each subscription• Periodically nodes have to re-subscribe – Nodes having failed permanently will time out – Re-balance the partial views

NewsCast• Goal: Aggregate information in – a large and dynamic – distributed environment – a robust and dependable manner
Idea• Gets news from application, timestamps it and adds local peer address to the cache entry• Finds a random peer in cache addresses – Sends all cache entries to this peer – Receives all cache entries from that peer• Passes on cache entries (containing news items) to application• Merges old cache with received cache – Keeps at most C most recent cache entries
Aggregation• Each node ni maintains a single number xi• Every node ni selects a random node nk, and sends its value xi to nk• nk responds with the aggregate (e.g. max(xi,xk) ) of the incoming and its own value• 4. Aggregate values will converge “exponentially”
