Data Dependent Sparing to Manage Better-Than-Bad Blocks

IEEE Computer Architecture Letters, 2013

We forecast that proper handling of unreliable storage blocks (e.g., "bad block management" in solid-state drives) will remain critical for future systems built with advanced and emerging memory technologies. This paper argues that the conventional block retirement and sparing approach--a block is retired as soon as it shows faulty behavior--is overly conservative and inefficient. We observe that it is highly ...


File-System-Level Storage Tiering for Faster Application Launches on Logical Hybrid Disks

IEEE Access, 2016

Application launch times can be reduced by using low-capacity solid-state drives (SSDs) in combination with the conventional magnetic hard disk drives (HDDs). We propose a storage tiering scheme for a logically integrated hybrid disk that eliminates the requirement to store a block-mapping table on the SSDs, as well as the need to access this table for every I/O: these characteristics ...

  • Data Dependent Sparing to Manage Better-Than-Bad Blocks

    We forecast that proper handling of unreliable storage blocks (e.g., "bad block management" in solid-state drives) will remain critical for future systems built with advanced and emerging memory technologies. This paper argues that the conventional block retirement and sparing approach--a block is retired as soon as it shows faulty behavior--is overly conservative and inefficient. We observe that it is highly unlikely that all faulty bits in a storage block manifest errors. Consequently, we propose data dependent sparing, a relaxed block retirement and sparing approach that recycles faulty storage blocks. At small management cost and with less than 1% sparing, data dependent sparing achieves the same lifetime as the conventional approach with 20% sparing.

  • File-System-Level Storage Tiering for Faster Application Launches on Logical Hybrid Disks

    Application launch times can be reduced by using low-capacity solid-state drives (SSDs) in combination with the conventional magnetic hard disk drives (HDDs). We propose a storage tiering scheme for a logically integrated hybrid disk that eliminates the requirement to store a block-mapping table on the SSDs, as well as the need to access this table for every I/O: these characteristics distinguish our scheme from most other SSD caching and driver- level tiering schemes. A heuristic identifies the disk blocks accessed during application launches, which are then moved from HDDs to SSDs by updating file- system pointers. In experiments with eight widely used applications, launch times were reduced by an average of 56 %, and our scheme outperformed the Linux DM-Cache by 6.5% on average. Because it runs as a background process, the block migration overhead is negligible. We also propose edge-block first and shortest sequence and long seek first (SSLSF) strategies for using limited SSD space effectively. Small collections of blocks, which have to be dispatched to the device driver together, are preferentially moved to the SSD especially when those blocks incur long seek times on the HDD. This produces a large reduction in HDD seek time for a small outlay of space on the SSD. In a scenario in which only 10% of launch blocks can be migrated to the SSD, the SSLSF strategy achieves average launch times for Eclipse and LibreOffice, which are 5.8% less than those exhibited by the widely used strategy of migrating short sequences of blocks first.
