Re: [conduit] Large lags on CONDUIT feed - started a week or so ago

It does appear to be better this morning, yes. The lags were huge (>3600s) 
during yesterday's 18 UTC cycle, and large (~900s) at times during last 
evening's 00 UTC cycle, but since the 06 UTC cycle the lags are back pretty 
much to normal.

Thanks,
Pete

Hi Pete,

We also had an issue on the supercomputer yesterday where several models going 
to conduit would have been stacked on top of each other instead of coming out 
in a more spread out fashion.  It's not inconceivable that conduit could have 
backed up working through the abnormally large glut of grib messages.    Are 
things better this morning at all?

Thanks,
Holly

abnormally large lags.

Carissa,


The Boulder connection is definitely performing very well for CONDUIT.  
Although there have been a couple of little blips (~ 120 seconds) since 
yesterday, overall the performance is superb.  I don't think it's quite as 
clean as prior to the ~February 10th date when the D.C. connection went bad, 
but it's still excellent performance.  Here's our graph now with a single 
connection (no splits):

[cid:16a01b5feb0f456b1e55]

My next question is:  Will CONDUIT stay pointing at Boulder until D.C. is 
fixed, or might you be required to switch back to D.C. at some point before 
that?


Thanks...               Art

Do we have traceroutes from all users? Does anything in VCenter show any system 
resource constraints?

Agree with Pete that this morning's data probably isn't a good test since there

switching to no split as an experiment and see how it holds up.

HI Pete -- we did have a separate issu hit the CONDUIT feed today.  We should 
be recovering now, but the backlog was sizeable.  If these numbers are not back 
to the baseline in the next hour or so please let us know.  We are also 
watching our queues and they are decreasing, but not as quickly as we had hoped.

Thank you,

Prior to whatever is going on to cause this, I don'r recall ever seeing lags 
this large with a 5-way split. It looked much more like the left hand side of 
this graph, with small increases in lag with each 6 hourly model run cycle, but 
more like 100 seconds vs the ~900 that I got this morning.

FYI I am going to change back to a 10 way split for now.

Sorry, was out this morning and just had a chance to look into this. I concur 
with Art and Gilbert that things appear to have gotten better starting with the 
failover of everything else to Boulder yesterday. I will also reconfigure to go 
back to a 5-way split (as opposed to the 10-way split that I've been using 
since this issue began) and keep an eye on tomorrow's 12 UTC model run cycle - 
if the lags go up, it usually happens worst during that cycle, shortly before 
18 UTC each day.

I'll report back tomorrow how it looks, or you can see at

Anne,


I'll hop back in the loop here... for some reason these replies started going 
into my junk file (bleh).  Anyway, I agree with Gilbert's assessment.  Things 
turned real clean around 12Z yesterday, looking at the graphs.  I usually look 
at 
flood.atmos.uiuc.edu<https://nam01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fflood.atmos.uiuc.edu&data=02%7C01%7Caap1%40psu.edu%7Ccf31451ef05f4926c27e08d6b94ced06%7C7cf48d453ddb4389a9c1c115526eb52e%7C0%7C0%7C636900137386706013&sdata=wqVULetyIAb2igHf0LtbLHAHjtnRovQ%2BnBz0Y0iJGjA%3D&reserved=0>
 when there are problem as their connection always seems to be the cleanest.  
If there are even small blips or ups and downs in their latencies, that usually 
means there's a network aberration somewhere that usually amplifies into 
hundreds or thousands of seconds at our site and elsewhere.  Looking at their 
graph now, you can see the blipiness up until 12Z yesterday, and then it's flat 
(except for the one spike around 16Z today which I would ignore):


[cid:16a01b5feb0f456b1e52]

Our direct-connected site, which is using a 10-way split right now, also shows 
a return to calmness in the latencies:

[cid:16a01b5feb0f456b1e53]

Prior to the recent latency jump, I did not use split requests and the 
reception had been stellar for quite some time.  It's my suspicion that this is 
a networking congestion issue somewhere close to the source since it seems to 
affect all downstream sites.  For that reason, I don't think solving this 
problem should necessarily involve upgrading your server software, but rather 
identifying what's jamming up the network near D.C., and testing this by 
switching to Boulder was an excellent idea.  I will now try switching our 
system to a two-way split to see if this performance holds up with fewer pipes. 
 Thanks for your help and I'll let you know what I find out.

Hello Anne,

And finally, the University of Washington:

All three of whom have direct feeds from you. Flipping over to Boulder 
definitely caused a major improvement. There was still a brief spike in delay, 
but much shorter and minimal
compared to what it was.

As of yesterday we failed almost all of our applications to our site in Boulder 
(meaning away from CONDUIT). Have you noticed an improvement in your speeds 
since yesterday afternoon? If so this will give us a clue that maybe there's 
something interfering on our side that isn't specifically CONDUIT, but another 
app that might be causing congestion. (And if it's the same then that's a clue 
in the other direction.)

Hello Art,

We will not be upgrading to version 6.13 on these systems as they are not 
robust enough to support the local logging inherent in the new version.

I will check in with my team on if there are any further actions we can take to 
try and troubleshoot this issue, but I fear we may be at the limit of our

I’ll let you know tomorrow where we stand. Thanks.

Hi Everyone

I’ve added the Dataflow team email to the thread. I haven’t heard that any 
changes were made or that any issues were found. But the team can look today 
and see if we have any signifiers of overall slowness with anything.

Dataflow, try taking a look at the new Citrix or VM troubleshooting tools if 
there are any abnormal signatures that may explain this.

Hi Pete,

We'll take a look and see if we can figure out what might be going on.  We 
haven't done anything to try and address this yet, but based on your analysis 
I'm suspicious that it might be tied to a resource constraint on the VM or the

Data is flowing again - picked up somewhere in the GEFS. Maybe CONDUIT server 
was restarted, or ldm on it? Lags are large (3000s+) but dropping slowly

Just a quick follow-up - we started falling far enough behind (3600+ sec) that 
we are losing data. We got short files starting at 174h into the GFS run, and 
only got (incomplete) data through 207h.

We have now not received any data on CONDUIT since 11:27 AM CST (1727 UTC) 
today (Wed Feb 20)

Subject: [conduit] Large lags on CONDUIT feed - started a week or so ago

Carissa,

We have been feeding CONDUIT using a 5 way split feed direct from 
conduit.ncep.noaa.gov<https://nam01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fconduit.ncep.noaa.gov&data=02%7C01%7Caap1%40psu.edu%7Ccf31451ef05f4926c27e08d6b94ced06%7C7cf48d453ddb4389a9c1c115526eb52e%7C0%7C0%7C636900137386776054&sdata=yK2Rb%2BsAYlP4MEDvmZa7phjHBIt8XyuD2NDjMKL2QsQ%3D&reserved=0>,
 and it had been really good for some time, lags 30-60 seconds or less.

However, the past week or so, we've been seeing some very large lags during 
each 6 hour model suite - Unidata is also seeing these - they are also feeding 
direct from 
conduit.ncep.noaa.gov<https://nam01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fconduit.ncep.noaa.gov&data=02%7C01%7Caap1%40psu.edu%7Ccf31451ef05f4926c27e08d6b94ced06%7C7cf48d453ddb4389a9c1c115526eb52e%7C0%7C0%7C636900137386786063&sdata=24wD%2FmZIrXBmhYYQP1rr7E7GzdAMLgLPLxFWTCp1v0U%3D&reserved=0>.

Any idea what's going on, or how we can find out?

Thanks!
