As we remember it was crucial that the front-end nodes can perform their work independently from each other in order to be able to adjust the system capacity by adding or removing nodes; we will see another reason for this when discussing how we react to failures within the system. But how can we get them to agree on which map tile is hosted by which internal network node? The answer is that we make the routing process simple Manning Publications Co. This data structure can be optimized and compressed by utilizing the hierarchical structure of the map partitioning.
Another consideration is that once this application has grown beyond a single data center we can route clients to the right data center that hosts the geographic region they are currently located in, at which point each front-end node only needs to know the location of the tiles its data center is responsible for.
One interesting question at this point is how we react to changes in our application deployment: when a node dies or is manually replaced, or when map tiles are reshuffled in order to adapt to changed user habits, how is this communicated to the front-end nodes? And what happens to updates that are sent to the wrong node?
The straight-forward answer is that during such a change there will be a time window where position updates pertaining to certain map tiles will simply be lost.
As long as we can reasonably expect this outage to be only temporary and of the order of a few seconds long then chances are that nobody will actually notice; one or two missing location updates do not have major effects on the aggregated statistics of a map tile or can be compensated for and not seeing a friends position move on a map for a few seconds once in a blue moon is unlikely to be of consequence.
The issue that sparked this foray into data rate planning was that the outflux was not limited since clients can zoom out and thereby request and consume more data than they produce and submit. When we visualize the map that shall show us the movement of all the anonymized users within its area, what do we expect to see when zooming out? We can certainly not follow each individual and track its course once there are more than a few handful of them in the region we are looking at.
And when zooming out to view all of Europe, the best we can hope for is aggregate information about population density or average velocity, we will not be able to discern individual positions anyway.
In the same way that we designed the information flow for data ingestion we can take a look at the data extraction as well. Looking at a map of Europe is the easy case because that will not require much data: the large-scale averages and aggregate numbers do not change very quickly.
The largest data demand will be given by users that are being tracked individually while being sufficiently closely zoomed in.
Let us assume that we allow up to 30 individuals before switching to an aggregated view, and let us further assume that we can limit the data consumption of the aggregate view to be equivalent to those 30 tracked points. One update will have to contain a timestamp and up to 30 tuples of identifier, latitude, and longitude.
These can presumably be compressed due to being Manning Publications Co. Including some overall status information we arrive at roughly bytes for a single update, which leaves us with about bytes per second on average for one update every five seconds.
These front-end nodes are also answering requests from clients, but they are of a different kind than the ones that are responsible for data ingestion. When a user logs into the app, the mobile device will start sending position updates to the latter ones while every time the user changes the map view on their device a request will be sent to the former ones, registering for the updates to be displayed on the screen.
This naturally decouples the two activities and allows a user to view a far-away map region without additional headaches for us implementers. Footnote 2mSending from one host to a multitude of others requires less overhead than having a multitude of clients send to a single host, see also the TCP incast problem.
At this point the big question is where these map view front-end nodes get their data from? We have so far only brought the position updates to the lowest-level map tiles and requesting their updates in order to calculate aggregate values will not work: serving , views could mean having to listen to the updates of millions of map tiles, corresponding to hundreds of terabytes per second.
There is only one solution to this dilemma, we must filter and preprocess the data at their source. Each lowest-level map tile knows the precise location and movement of all users within its geographic region and it would be easy enough to calculate their number, average movement speed and direction, center of gravity, and other interesting quantities.
These summary data are then sent every five seconds to the map tile one level up that contains this tile. As a concrete example consider that the lowest level is 7 partition steps below the North American continent.
The center of Dodge City, Kansas on level 7 calculates the summary information and sends it to the encompassing level 6 map tile, which will also receive such summaries from the 15 other level 7 neighbors that it contains. The good thing about aggregate quantities such as user count, center of gravity, and so on is that they can be merged with one another to aggregate at higher and higher granularity summing up the users, calculating the weighted center of gravity of the individual centers, and so on.
The level 6 map tile performs this aggregation every five seconds and sends its summary up to its encompassing level 5 parent, and this process is repeated all the way up to the top level.
The data rate needed for this transfer is fixed to the size of the summary data packet once every five seconds for each sender, and sixteen times that amount for each recipient; Manning Publications Co.
In many cases these data do not even need to travel across the network since sparsely populated map areas are collocated on the same processing node and the summary levels can be collocated with the lowest level map tiles as well. When a map view front-end node now needs to access the summary information at level 4 for displaying a map spanning approximately by miles it will just request the summary information from the roughly sixteen level 4 map tiles covering the viewport.
Knowing that network bandwidth will likely be the most limiting factor for these view front-end nodes, it would be possible to optimize their usage on the internal side by redirecting external clients between them such that one front-end node handles many similar requestsfor the same approximate geographic region at the same summary level.
That way this node can satisfy multiple clients from the same internal data stream. This is shown in figure 1. Figure 1. The one piece that still needs consideration is how to handle the fully zoomed-in case: when a user points their map at Big Ben to see all the tourists milling about in the center of London then care must be taken to not send all the data from that highly frequented map tile to the front-end node because that could potentially take up all the available bandwidth by itself.
We said earlier that a map should display only summary information as soon as the number of individual data points exceeds The calculation of this Manning Publications Co. One aspect of this flow diagram deserves mention, namely that it takes a little while for each new piece of information to make its way up to the top, in this example with seven levels it takes on average about 18 seconds 7 times an average delay of 2.
This should not be a problem, though, since the summary information changes much more slowly the higher up we get in the hierarchy. We have designed the flow of information through our application as shown in figure 1.
We have avoided the introduction of a single bottleneck through which the data must pass, all parts of the design can be scaled individually.
The front-ends for data ingestion and map views can be adapted to user activity while the map data itself is modeled as a hierarchy of map tiles where the granularity can be chosen by picking the number of partition steps. The processing of the data passing through the map tiles can be deployed onto a number of network nodes as needed in terms of processing and network resources. In the simplest scenario everything can run on a single computer, and at the same time the design supports deployment in a dozen data centers and on thousands of nodes.
Now that we have a pretty good overview of the parts of our application and of the data flows within it, we should consider how failures will affect it.
This is not a black art, on the contrary there is a very simple procedure that we can follow: we consider every node in our processing network and every data flow link one by one and determine what happens if it fails.
In order to do this we need a failure model, where a good starting point for a network-based system is the following: network links can drop arbitrary bursts of messages which includes the case of the link was down for three hours processing nodes can stop responding and never recover for example by way of a hardware failure processing nodes can intermittently fail to respond for example due to temporary overload processing nodes can experience arbitrary delays for example due to garbage collection pauses like for the JVM There are more possibilities of what can go wrong and you will need to assess your system requirements carefully in order to decide what else to include; some more choices are that network links may corrupt data packets, data packets may experience arbitrary delay, processing nodes may respond with erroneous data, or they may execute malicious code and perform arbitrary actions.
We will also need to consider the effect of executing multiple parts of the application on the same hardware, since this means that hardware failure or resource exhaustion can affect all these parts simultaneously. The more vital the function of your application is for your organization, the more detailed the considered failure model will be. For this example case we stick to the simple list of bullet points outlined above.
Mobile devices can fail for a whole host of reasons, ranging from their destruction over empty batteries to a software crash. Users are used to dealing with those replacing the phone, charging it or restarting the phone or just the app and they do not expect things to work while their device has failed.
