1 FILE SYSTEMS, PART 2 CS124 Operating Systems Winter , Lecture 24

2 2 Last Time: Linked Allocation Last time, discussed linked allocation Blocks of the file are chained together into a linked list Directory Entry: A 3 11 Great for sequential access, but terrible for direct access A refinement of this approach is to maintain a separate file allocation table FAT is small enough to keep in memory; speeds up direct access Directory Entry: File Allocation Table: A

3 3 File Layout: Indexed Allocation Indexed allocation achieves the benefits of linked allocation while also being very fast for direct access Files include indexing information to allow for fast access Each file effectively has its own file-allocation table optimized for both sequential and direct access This information is usually stored separate from the file s contents, so that programs can assume that blocks are entirely used by data A 2 Location of Index Block Contents of Index Block index

4 4 File Layout: Indexed Allocation (2) Both direct and sequential access are very fast Very easy to translate a logical file position into the corresponding disk block Position in index = logical position / block size Use value in index to load the corresponding block into memory A 2 Location of Index Block Contents of Index Block index

5 5 File Layout: Indexed Allocation (3) Index block can also store file metadata Recall: many filesystems support hard linking of a file from multiple paths If metadata is stored in the directory instead of with the file, metadata must be duplicated, could get out of sync, etc. Indexed allocation can avoid this issue! A user1 A B home C C user2 D A 2 Location of Index Block Contents of Index Block index

6 6 File Layout: Indexed Allocation (4) Obvious overhead from indexed allocation is the index Tends to be greater overhead than e.g. linked allocation Index space tend to be allocated in units of storage blocks Difficult to balance concerns for small and large files Don t want small files to waste space with a mostly-empty index Don t want large files to incur a lot of work from navigating many small index blocks A 2 Location of Index Block Contents of Index Block index

7 7 Indexing Approaches Option 1: a linked sequence of index blocks Each index block has an array of file-block pointers Last pointer in index block is either end of index value, or a pointer to the next index block Good for smaller files Example: storage blocks of 512B; 32-bit index entries 512 bytes / 4 bytes = maximum of 128 entries Index block might store 100 or more entries (extra space for storing file metadata) 100 entries per index block 512 byte blocks = ~50KB file size for a single index block Usually want to use virtual page size as block size instead Max of 1024 entries per 4KiB page If index entries refer to 4KiB blocks, a single index block can be used for up to 4MB files before requiring a second index block

8 8 Indexing Approaches (2) Option 2: a multilevel index structure An index page can reference other index pages, or it can reference data blocks in the file itself (but not both) Depth of indexing structure can be adjusted based on the file s size Using same numbers as before, a single-level index can index up to ~4MB file sizes Above that size, a two-level index can be used: Leaf pages in index will each index up to ~4MB regions of the file Each entry in the root of the index corresponds to ~4MB of the file A two-level index can be used for up to a ~4GB file A three-level index can be used for up to a ~4TB file etc. Index can be navigated very efficiently for direct access

9 9 Indexing Approaches (3) Option 3: a hybrid approach that blends other approaches Example: UNIX Ext2 file system Root index node (i-node) hs file metadata Root index also hs pointers to the first 12 disk blocks Small files (e.g. up to ~50KB) only require a single index block Called direct blocks If this is insufficient, one of the index pointers is used for single indirect blocks One additional index block is introduced to the structure, like linked organization Extends file size up to e.g. multiple-mb files file metadata

10 10 Indexing Approaches (4) For even larger files, the next index pointer is used for double indirect blocks These blocks are accessed via a two-level index hierarchy Allows for very large files, up into multiple GB in size If this is insufficient, the last root-index pointer is used for triple indirect blocks These blocks use a threelevel index hierarchy Allows file sizes up into TB This approach imposes a size limit on files More recent extensions to this filesystem format allow for larger files (e.g. extents) file metadata

11 11 Files and Processes The OS maintains a buffer of storage blocks in memory Storage devices are often much slower than the CPU; use caching to improve performance of reads and writes Multiple processes can open a file at the same time Process A Kernel Data Process B Kernel Data files[0] files[1] files[2] files[3] files[0] files[1] files[2] files[3] files[4] files[5] flags offset v_ptr flags offset v_ptr Global Kernel Data file_ops filename path size flags i_node File Control Block Storage Cache

12 12 Files and Processes (2) Very common to have different processes perform reads and writes on the same open file OSes tend to vary in how they handle this circumstance, but standard APIs can manage these interactions Process A Kernel Data Process B Kernel Data files[0] files[1] files[2] files[3] files[0] files[1] files[2] files[3] files[4] files[5] flags offset v_ptr flags offset v_ptr Global Kernel Data file_ops filename path size flags i_node File Control Block Storage Cache

13 13 Files and Processes (3) Multiple reads on the same file generally never block each other, even for overlapping reads Generally, a read that occurs after a write, should reflect the completion of that write operation Writes should sometimes block each other, but OSes vary widely in how they handle this e.g. Linux prevents multiple concurrent writes to the same file Most important situation to get correct is appending to file Two operations must be performed: file is extended, then write is performed into new space If this task isn t atomic, results will likely be completely broken files

14 14 Files and Processes (4) OSes have several ways to govern concurrent file access Often, entire files can be locked in shared or exclusive mode e.g. Windows CreateFile() API call allows a file to be locked in one of several modes when it s created Other processes that attempt to perform conflicting operations are prevented from doing so by the operating system Some OSes provide advisory file-locking operations Advisory locks aren t enforced on actual file-io operations They are only enforced when processes participate in acquiring and releasing these locks Example: UNIX flock() acquires and releases advisory locks on an entire file Processes calling flock() can be blocked if a conflicting lock is held If a process decides to just directly access the flock() d file, the OS won t stop it!

15 15 Files and Processes (5) Example: UNIX lockf() function can acquire and release advisory locks on a region of a file i.e. lock a section of the file in a shared or exclusive mode Windows has a similar capability Both flock() and lockf() are wrappers to fcntl() fcntl() can perform many different operations on files: Duplicate a file descriptor Get and set control flags on open files Enable or disable various kinds of I/O signals for open files Acquire or release locks on files or ranges of files etc. Some OSes also provide mandatory file-locking support Processes are forced to abide by the current set of file locks e.g. Linux has mandatory file-locking support, but this is non-standard

16 16 File Deletion File deletion is a generally straightforward operation Specific implementation details depend heavily on the file system format home General procedure: user1 Remove the directory entry referencing the file If the file system contains no other hard-links to the file, record that all of the file s blocks are now available for other files to use A B A C C The file system must record what blocks are available for use when files are created or extended Often called a free-space list, although many different ways to record this information Some file systems already have a way of doing this, e.g. FAT formats simply mark clusters as unused in the table user2 D

17 17 Free Space Management A simple approach: a bitmap with one bit per block If a block is free, the corresponding bit is 1 If a block is in use, the corresponding bit is 0 Simple to find an available block, or a run of available blocks Can make more efficient by accessing the bitmap in units of words, skipping over entire words that are 0 This bitmap clearly occupies a certain amount of space e.g. a 4KiB block can record the state of blocks, or 128MiB of storage space A 1TB disk would require 8192 blocks (32MiB) to record the disk s freespace bitmap The file system can break this bitmap into multiple parts e.g. Ext2 manages a free-block bitmap for groups of blocks, with the constraint that each group s bitmap must always fit into one block

18 18 Free Space Management (2) Another simple approach: a linked list of free blocks The file system records the first block in the free list Each free block hs a pointer to the next block Also very simple to find an available block Much harder to find a run of contiguous blocks that are available Tends to be more I/O costly than the bitmap approach Requires additional disk accesses to scan and update the free-list of blocks Also, wastes a lot of space in the free list A better use of free blocks: store the addresses of many free blocks in each block of the linked list Only a subset of the free blocks are required for this information Still generally requires more space than bitmap approach

19 19 Free Space Management (3) Many other ways of recording free storage space e.g. record runs of free contiguous blocks with (start, count) values e.g. maintain more sophisticated maps of free space A common theme: many of these approaches don t require actually touching newly deallocated blocks e.g. update a bitmap, store a block-pointer in another block, Storage devices frequently still contain the contents of deleted or truncated files Called data remanence Sometimes this characteristic is useful for data recovery e.g. file-undelete utilities e.g. computer forensics when investigating crimes Also generally not difficult to securely erase devices

20 20 Free Space and SSDs Solid State Drives (SSDs) and other flash-based devices often complicate management of free space SSDs are block devices; reads and writes are a fixed size Problem: can only write to a block that is currently empty Blocks can only be erased in groups, not individually! An erase block is a group of blocks that are erased together Erase blocks are much larger than read/write blocks A read/write block might be 4KiB or 8KiB Erase blocks are often 128 or 256 of these blocks (e.g. 2MiB)! As long as some blocks on the SSD are empty, writes can be performed immediately If the SSD has no more empty blocks, a group of blocks must be erased to provide more empty blocks

21 21 Solid State Drives Solid State Drives include a flash translation layer that maps logical block addresses to physical memory cells Recall: system uses Logical Block Addressing to access disks When files are written to the SSD, data must be stored in empty cells (i.e. contents can t simply be overwritten) If a file is edited, the SSD sees a write issued against the same logical block e.g. block 2 in file F1 is written SSD can t just replace block s contents SSD marks the cell as, then stores the new block data in another cell, and updates the mapping in the FTL Flash Translation Layer F1.1 F1.2 F1.3 F2.1 F2.2 F3.1 F3.2 F3.3 F3.4 F1.2'

22 22 Solid State Drives (2) Over time, SSD ends up with few or no available cells e.g. a series of writes to our SSD that results in all cells being used SSD must erase at least one block of cells to be reused Best case is when an entire erase-block can be reclaimed SSD erases the entire block, and then carries on as before Erase! Flash Translation Layer F1.1 F1.2 F1.3 F2.1 Flash Translation Layer F2.1'' F2.2 F3.1 F3.2 F3.3 F2.2 F3.1 F3.2 F3.3 F3.4 F1.2' F3.1' F3.4' F3.4 F1.2' F3.1' F3.4' F1.1' F2.1' F1.3' F1.2'' F1.1' F2.1' F1.3' F1.2''

23 23 Solid State Drives (3) More complicated when an erase block still hs data e.g. SSD decides it must reclaim the third erase-block SSD must relocate the current contents before erasing Result: sometimes a write to the SSD incurs additional writes within the SSD Phenomenon is called write amplification Flash Translation Layer Flash Translation Layer F2.1'' F3.1' F3.4' F2.1'' F3.1' F3.4' F2.2 F3.1 F3.2 F3.3 F2.2 F3.1 F3.2 F3.3 Erase! F3.4 F1.2' F3.1' F3.4' F1.1' F2.1' F1.3' F1.2'' F1.1' F2.1' F1.3' F1.2''

24 24 Solid State Drives (4) SSDs must carefully manage this process to avoid uneven wear of its memory cells Cells can only survive so many erase cycles, then become useless How does the SSD know when a cell s contents are no longer needed? (i.e. when to mark the cell ) The SSD only knows because it sees several writes to the same logical block The new version replaces the version, so the cell is no longer used for storage Flash Translation Layer F2.1'' F3.1' F3.4' F2.2 F3.1 F3.2 F3.3 F1.1' F2.1' F1.3' F1.2''

25 25 SSDs and File Deletion Problem: for most file system formats, file deletion doesn t actually touch the blocks in the file themselves! File systems try to avoid this anyway, because storage I/O is slow! Want to update the directory entry and the free-space map only, and want this to be as efficient as possible Example: File F3 is deleted from the SSD SSD will only see the block with the directory entry change, and block(s) hing the free map The SSD has no idea that file F3 s data no longer needs to be preserved e.g. if the SSD decides to erase bank 2, it will still move F3.2 and F3.3 to other cells, even though the OS and the users don t care! Flash Translation Layer F2.1'' F3.1' F3.4' F2.2 F3.1 F3.2 F3.3 F1.1' F2.1' F1.3' F1.2''

26 26 SSDs, File Deletion and TRIM To deal with this, SSDs introduced the TRIM command (TRIM is not an acronym) When the filesystem is finished with certain logical blocks, it can issue a TRIM command to inform the SSD that the data in those blocks can be discarded Previous example: file F3 is deleted The OS can issue a TRIM command to inform SSD that all associated blocks are now unused TRIM allows the SSD to manage its cells much more efficiently Greatly reduces write magnification issues Helps reduce wear on SSD memory cells Flash Translation Layer F2.1'' F3.1' F3.4' F2.2 F3.1 F3.2 F3.3 F1.1' F2.1' F1.3' F1.2''

27 27 SSDs, File Deletion and TRIM (2) Still a few issues to resolve with TRIM at this point Biggest one is TRIM wasn t initially a queued command Couldn t include TRIM commands in a mix of other read/write commands being sent to the device TRIM must be performed separately, in isolation of other operations TRIM must be issued in a batch-mode way, when it won t interrupt other work e.g. can t issue TRIM commands immediately F2.1'' F3.1' F3.4' after each delete operation This was fixed in SATA 3.1 specification A queued version of TRIM was introduced Another issue: not all OSes/filesystems support TRIM (or not enabled by default) Flash Translation Layer F2.2 F3.1 F3.2 F3.3 F1.1' F2.1' F1.3' F1.2''
