  6. 6. Agenda● Following mechanism at pixiv ○ Image Upload ○ Thumbnail Generation
  7. 7. Scale of pixiv according to thumbnails● pixiv has about 30,000,000 illusts and comics● Each illust has about 12 ~ too many thumbnails● 20,000 illusts and comics are uploaded every day● Total volume is about 30TB
  8. 8. Image Upload
  9. 9. Image Upload Detail 1● Generate too many thumbnails ○ 12 ~ too many thumbnails● Save a original image and thumbnails to storage ○ not NFS ○ with in-house WebDAV Client(ImageClient)

  14. 14. ImageClient● Enable WebDAV operations to multiple servers transparently ○ put image ○ delete image ○ move image ○ make directory PUT ImageClient ○ move directory DELETE MOVE PUT DELETE ○ delete directory MKCOL MOVE MKCOL Image Image Storage ・・・・・ Storage
  15. 15. Image Upload Detail 2● A image is uploaded semi-asynchronously ○ Generating thumbnails takes a long time

  26. 26. Inside Image Upload● User Side Action ○ Apache ○ PHP ■ ImageClient● Server Side Action ○ daemontools ○ Python ■ python-prefork, python-q4m, python-worker ● python-q4m and python-worker are in-house libraries ○ Q4M ■ Used As Upload Job Queue
  27. 27. Thumbnail Generation
  28. 28. Two types of thumbnails at pixiv● Static Thumbnail● Dynamic Thumbnail
  29. 29. Static Thumbnail
  30. 30. Static Thumbnail Generated on upload
  31. 31. Detail of generating thumbnails● pixiv uses ImageMagick ○ ImageMagick is not fast ○ But quality of generated image is good ○ Quality is more important than speed for us ○ Of course, optimization is important, too
  32. 32. ImageMagick Optimization
  33. 33. libjpeg-turbo
  34. 34. libjpeg-turbo● Optimized libjpeg for x86 and x86_64● Replace libjpeg simply by LD_LIBRARY_PATH● ImageMagick uses libjpeg
  35. 35. benchmark of libjpeg and libjpeg-turboprocessing JPEG-image with libjpeg and libjpeg-turbo ■libjpeg ■libjpeg-turbo
  36. 36. benchmark of libjpeg and libjpeg-turboprocessing JPEG-image with libjpeg and libjpeg-turbo ■libjpeg ■libjpeg-turbo libjpeg-turbo is faster than libjpeg by 10% on x86_64
  37. 37. Disable OpenMP
  38. 38. Disable OpenMP● Latest ImageMagick is OpenMP enabled at default ○ This is very slow in multi-process environment● How to disable OpenMP ○ Re-compile with --disable-openmp ○ OMP_NUM_THREADS=1● pixiv takes the latter ○ Re-compiling and Re-packaging are complicated
  39. 39. OMP_NUM_THREADS=1CPU Usage of Application Server
  40. 40. OMP_NUM_THREADS=1 CPU usage in peak dropped by 150~200%CPU Usage of Application Server
  41. 41. OMP_NUM_THREADS=1Load Average of Application Server
  42. 42. OMP_NUM_THREADS=1 Load Average became dustLoad Average of Application Server
  43. 43. Dynamic Thumbnail
  44. 44. Dynamic Thumbnail Generated on demand
  45. 45. Why is dynamic thumbnail needed?● Static thumbnail consumes disk space ○ Dynamic thumbnail does not consume disk space● Preparing new static thumbnails takes a long time ○ Dynamic thumbnail is ready in a second!
  46. 46. Other Companies Cases● Cookpad ○ mod_tofu ○ http://www.slideshare.net/mirakui/ss-8150494● livedoor(Now, NHN Japan) ○ mod_small_light ○ http://www.slideshare.net/livedoor/smalllight2
  47. 47. pixivs Case
  48. 48. mod_small_light-1.1.1
  49. 49. mod_small_light-1.1.1 pixiv Edition5
  50. 50. mod_small_light-1.1.1 pixiv Edition5 heavily customized...
  51. 51. Heavily customized...
  52. 52. mod_small_light configuration
  53. 53. Resize image with mod_small_lightGET /tank.jpg GET /small_light(dw=100,dh=100)/tank.jpg
  54. 54. Many Optionsq image quality(0~100)of output format(jpg,gif,png,tiff)e processing engine(imlib2,imagemagick)cc canvas colorp pattern name with SmallLightPatternDefineetc Too many options
  55. 55. Pattern Name
  56. 56. Resize image with mod_small_light GET /small_light(p=small)/tank.jpgGET /tank.jpg or GET /small_light(dw=100,dh=100,e=imagemagick,jpeghint=y)/tank.jpg
  57. 57. Why not original mod_small_light?● Some thumbnails are special ○ comic cover ○ various cropping algorithms depending on aspect ratio● Default output format is JPEG ○ It is good for us that input and output formats are the same
  58. 58. Why not original mod_small_light?● No support for CMYK ○ pixiv must support CMYK● Needed support for strange aspect ratio ○ da=l -> long-edge ○ da=s -> short-edge ○ da=p -> pixiv-edge (only pixiv Edition)
  59. 59. Special Thumbnail 1● comic cover
  60. 60. Special Thumbnail 2● special cropping algorithm
  61. 61. Special Thumbnail 2● special cropping algorithm
  62. 62. Special Thumbnail 2● special cropping algorithm crop center of image if image is landscape
  63. 63. Special Thumbnail 3● special cropping algorithm
  64. 64. Special Thumbnail 3● special cropping algorithm
  65. 65. Special Thumbnail 3● special cropping algorithm crop top of image if image is portrait
  66. 66. Many Extend Optionsrmprof remove image profilescrop_square crop image squarlycover add manga coversamec conform dw & dh & cw & chextendl extend long-edgeetc twenty new options in all
  67. 67. Summary● Optimization of image processing is very important ○ Generating thumbnail takes a long time ○ Lets tune and desynchronize● pixiv has two types of thumbnails ○ Static Thumbnail ○ Dynamic Thumbnail● Dynamic Thumbnail is diskspace-saving and flexible ○ Big image storage is expensive ○ Easy to correspond to shift of application ■ New thumbnail types for new designs
