Grid FTP Benchmarking tests

 This page is meant to gather information about GridFTP? scalability tests.


This test is meant to benchmark the CPU utilization of a standard OSG CE GridFTP? server.
This test is meant to benchmark a standard OSG CE GridFTP? server.
  The test server was a OSG v1.0.0 CE, with:
  • 2 x AMD Opteron 275 (4 cores total)
Line: 15 to 15
  • 2TB disk space, mounted as RAID0
  • CentOS? 5.2 (x86_64)

The first test was aimed at measuring the impact of security on the GridFTP? server.
  • A single file of 1.5Gb was transfered over LAN. The file was in server memory cache at all times.
    Between 1 and 8 clients per node on either 1 or 2 client nodes were used.The clients were writing to /dev/null.
  • The same test was repeated with the default settings (no security), intergrity checks (dcsafe) and full encryption (dcpriv).
  • The OSG CE GridFTP? server was shown to saturate the available network bandwidth, given enough clients.
  • CPU usage is substantially higher when using integrityand/or encryption (up to 10x), but the OSG CE GridFTP? server never used up all of the CPUs (at minimum 12% of all CPU resources were idle at any given time).
  • Full details can be found at gridftp_ce_security.pdf and gridftp_ce_security.ods.
