Colmet - Collecting metrics about jobs running in a distributed environnement

Introduction:

Colmet is a monitoring tool to collect metrics about jobs running in a distributed environnement, especially for gathering metrics on clusters and grids. It provides currently several backends :

  • Input backends:
    • taskstats: fetch task metrics from the linux kernel
    • rapl: intel processors realtime consumption metrics
    • perfhw: perf_event counters
    • jobproc: get infos from /proc
    • ipmipower: get power metrics from ipmi
    • temperature: get temperatures from /sys/class/thermal
    • infiniband: get infiniband/omnipath network metrics
    • lustre: get lustre FS stats
  • Output backends:
    • elasticsearch: store the metrics on elasticsearch indexes
    • hdf5: store the metrics on the filesystem
    • stdout: display the metrics on the terminal

It uses zeromq to transport the metrics across the network.

It is currently bound to the OAR RJMS.

A Grafana sample dashboard is provided for the elasticsearch backend. Here are some snapshots:

Installation:

Requirements

  • a Linux kernel that supports

    • Taskstats
    • intel_rapl (for RAPL backend)
    • perf_event (for perfhw backend)
    • ipmi_devintf (for ipmi backend)
  • Python Version 2.7 or newer

    • python-zmq 2.2.0 or newer
    • python-tables 3.3.0 or newer
    • python-pyinotify 0.9.3-2 or newer
    • python-requests
  • For the Elasticsearch output backend (recommended for sites with > 50 nodes)

    • An Elasticsearch server
    • A Grafana server (for visu)
  • For the RAPL input backend:

  • For the infiniband backend:

    • perfquery command line tool
  • for the ipmipower backend:

    • ipmi-oem command line tool (freeipmi) or other configurable command

Installation

You can install, upgrade, uninstall colmet with these commands::

$ pip install [--user] colmet
$ pip install [--user] --upgrade colmet
$ pip uninstall colmet

Or from git (last development version)::

$ pip install [--user] git+https://github.com/oar-team/colmet.git

Or if you already pulled the sources::

$ pip install [--user] path/to/sources

Usage:

for the nodes :

sudo colmet-node -vvv --zeromq-uri tcp://127.0.0.1:5556

for the collector :

# Simple local HDF5 file collect:
colmet-collector -vvv --zeromq-bind-uri tcp://127.0.0.1:5556 --hdf5-filepath /data/colmet.hdf5 --hdf5-complevel 9
# Collector with an Elasticsearch backend:
  colmet-collector -vvv \
    --zeromq-bind-uri tcp://192.168.0.1:5556 \
    --buffer-size 5000 \
    --sample-period 3 \
    --elastic-host http://192.168.0.2:9200 \
    --elastic-index-prefix colmet_dahu_ 2>>/var/log/colmet_err.log >> /var/log/colmet.log

You will see the number of counters retrieved in the debug log.

For more information, please refer to the help of theses scripts (--help)

Notes about backends

Some input backends may need external libraries that need to be previously compiled and installed:

# For the perfhw backend:
cd colmet/node/backends/lib_perf_hw/ && make && cp lib_perf_hw.so /usr/local/lib/
# For the rapl backend:
cd colmet/node/backends/lib_rapl/ && make && cp lib_rapl.so /usr/local/lib/

Here's acomplete colmet-node start-up process, with perfw, rapl and more backends:

export LIB_PERFHW_PATH=/usr/local/lib/lib_perf_hw.so
export LIB_RAPL_PATH=/applis/site/colmet/lib_rapl.so

colmet-node -vvv --zeromq-uri tcp://192.168.0.1:5556 \
   --cpuset_rootpath /dev/cpuset/oar \
   --enable-infiniband --omnipath \
   --enable-lustre \
   --enable-perfhw --perfhw-list instructions cache_misses page_faults cpu_cycles cache_references \
   --enable-RAPL \
   --enable-jobproc \
   --enable-ipmipower >> /var/log/colmet.log 2>&1

RAPL - Running Average Power Limit (Intel)

RAPL is a feature on recent Intel processors that makes possible to know the power consumption of cpu in realtime.

Usage : start colmet-node with option --enable-RAPL

A file named RAPL_mapping.[timestamp].csv is created in the working directory. It established the correspondence between counter_1, counter_2, etc from collected data and the actual name of the metric as well as the package and zone (core / uncore / dram) of the processor the metric refers to.

If a given counter is not supported by harware the metric name will be "counter_not_supported_by_hardware" and 0 values will appear in the collected data; -1 values in the collected data means there is no counter mapped to the column.

Perfhw

This provides metrics collected using interface perf_event_open.

Usage : start colmet-node with option --enable-perfhw

Optionnaly choose the metrics you want (max 5 metrics) using options --perfhw-list followed by space-separated list of the metrics/

Example : --enable-perfhw --perfhw-list instructions cpu_cycles cache_misses

A file named perfhw_mapping.[timestamp].csv is created in the working directory. It establishes the correspondence between counter_1, counter_2, etc from collected data and the actual name of the metric.

Available metrics (refers to perf_event_open documentation for signification) :

cpu_cycles 
instructions 
cache_references 
cache_misses 
branch_instructions
branch_misses
bus_cycles 
ref_cpu_cycles 
cache_l1d 
cache_ll
cache_dtlb 
cache_itlb 
cache_bpu 
cache_node 
cache_op_read 
cache_op_prefetch 
cache_result_access 
cpu_clock 
task_clock 
page_faults 
context_switches 
cpu_migrations
page_faults_min
page_faults_maj
alignment_faults 
emulation_faults
dummy
bpf_output

Temperature

This backend gets temperatures from /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/temp

Usage : start colmet-node with option --enable-temperature

A file named temperature_mapping.[timestamp].csv is created in the working directory. It establishes the correspondence between counter_1, counter_2, etc from collected data and the actual name of the metric.
