This paper discusses about the design and the implementation
of the Google File system, which is a highly scalable distributed file system
for large data-intensive applications. The whole system is developed using
inexpensive commodity components which often fails. It must have the ability to
self detect, tolerate and recover immediately from component failures. It
should be able to hand booth the kinds of workloads, namely large streaming
reads and small random reads. Bandwith is more important than the latency.

The architecture of the GFS consists of the following: A
Single Master, with multiple chunkservers. Files are divided into fixed-size
chunks. The system has only One Master that manages the whole system, whenever a
clients wants to read or write the data, it directly doesn’t involve the
master, instead the master tells the client, which master has to be contacted
for any operation.

The master stays in periodic touch with the chunk servers
with periodic heartbeats. The chunkserver has the whole information about the
chunks.

The operation log is that, which has all the information/ a
complete record bout the changes in the metadata. Operation log is very
critical, and so it has to be stored in a very reliable place, and the no
changes has to be made that are visible to the clients. The log has to be kept
small, so that the startup time for the master to recover the master is very
less.

Google File system makes certain guarantees, where the file namespace
mutations are made atomic, and they are handled directly by the master. Locking
of the namespace guarantees the atomicity and the correctness. Region has to be
both defined and concurrent in its state. Mutations has to be successful, and if
it fails, it makes the region inconsistent. So, the Data mutations has to be
made consistent by either using the writes or record appends.

The design of the GFS is made in such a way that, it
minimizes the master’s involvement in all the operations. Each and every
mutation is performed at all of the chunk’s replicas. In order to maintain a
consistent mutation, we use the concept of leases.  The Master grants a chunk lease to the
primary  replica. A serial order is
picked up by the primary, to perform all the mutations to the chunk. All the
chunk replicas follow this order while performing the mutations.

In order to minimize the management overhead at the master,
we have to design a lease mechanism. Every lease has a timeout of 60 seconds.
But, the primary can request and typically receive the extensions from the
master, as long as the chunk is mutated.

 

Data flow, while the control flows from the client to the
primary and then to all the secondaries the data is pushed linearly along a  picked chain of chunkservers in a pipelined
manner. The aim is  to completely utilize
the machine’s network bandwidth, avoiding the network bottlenecks. The data is
pushed linearly along  a chain of
chunkservers, instead of doing it in a tree topology. For Betterment, each
machine forwards the data to the closest machine in the topology. The latency
is minimized by pipelining the data transfer via TCP connections.

 

 

GFS provides a new way of an atomic append operation known
as record append. This append operation is different from the traditional write
operation by the client where the concurrent write aren’t serializable. In this
record append, the client specifies only the data, instead of specifying the
data offset. The file is appended atomically once. This whole operation is a
kind of mutation. The client is notified when there is any failure in the write
to the replica.

Snapshot is other kind of operation, which makes the copy of
the file or directory. During the first time, when a client wants to write a
chunk, after any snapshot operation, it sends a request to the master.
