WAP5

Patrick Reynolds, Janet L. Wiener, Jeffrey C. Mogul, Marcos K. Aguilera, Amin Vahdat
2006 Proceedings of the 15th international conference on World Wide Web - WWW '06  
Wide-area distributed applications are challenging to debug, optimize, and maintain.  ...  Previous research projects have presented algorithms to reconstruct application structure and the corresponding timing information from black-box message traces of local-area systems.  ...  ENTERPRISE APPLICATIONS Although this paper focuses on wide-area applications, previous work on black-box debugging using traces [1, 2, 4] focused on LAN applications.  ...

Precise, Scalable, and Online Request Tracing for Multitier Services of Black Boxes

Bo Sang, Jianfeng Zhan, Gang Lu, Haining Wang, Dongyan Xu, Lei Wang, Zhihong Zhang, Zhen Jia
2012 IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems  
In comparison with WAP5-a black-box tracing approach, PreciseTracer achieves higher tracing accuracy and faster response time.  ...  First, we propose a precise request tracing algorithm for multi-tier services of black boxes, which only uses application-independent knowledge.  ...  Thus, this approach cannot be used for services of black boxes.  ...

CLUE: System trace analytics for cloud service performance diagnosis

Hui Zhang, Junghwan Rhee, Nipun Arora, Sahan Gamage, Guofei Jiang, Kenji Yoshihira, Dongyan Xu
2014 2014 IEEE Network Operations and Management Symposium (NOMS)  
In this paper, we present CLUE, a system event analytics tool for black-box performance diagnosis in production Cloud Computing systems.  ...  We demonstrated the evaluation of our framework on real-world IT systems, and showed how it can enable visibility and effective diagnosis of service system performance problems.  ...  WAP5 infers causal paths for wide-area systems in a per-process granularity using library interposition.  ...

Precise, Scalable and Online Request Tracing for Multi-tier Services of Black Boxes [article]

Bo Sang, Jianfeng Zhan, Zhihong Zhang, Lei Wang, Dongyan Xu, Yabing Huang, Dan Meng
2010 arXiv   pre-print
boxes fail to propose macro-level abstractions that enables debugging performance-in-the-large, and hence users have to manually interpret massive logs.  ...  This paper introduces a precise, scalable and online request tracing tool, named PreciseTracer, for multi-tier services of black boxes.  ...  More recently WAP5 [3] infers causal paths for wide-area systems from tracing stream on a per-process granularity using library interposition.  ...

FChain: Toward Black-Box Online Fault Localization for Cloud Systems

Hiep Nguyen, Zhiming Shen, Yongmin Tan, Xiaohui Gu
2013 2013 IEEE 33rd International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems  
In this paper, we present a black-box online fault localization system called FChain that can pinpoint faulty components immediately after a performance anomaly is detected.  ...  Distributed applications running inside cloud systems are prone to performance anomalies due to various reasons such as resource contentions, software bugs, and hardware failures.  ...  The authors would like to thank the anonymous reviewers for their insightful comments.  ...

Carat

Adam J. Oliner, Anand P. Iyer, Ion Stoica, Eemil Lagerspetz, Sasu Tarkoma
2013 Proceedings of the 11th ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems - SenSys '13  
This paper describes a collaborative black-box method, and an implementation called Carat, for diagnosing anomalies on mobile devices.  ...  A client app sends intermittent, coarse-grained measurements to a server, which correlates higher expected energy use with client properties like the running apps, device model, and operating system.  ...  in the AMP Lab for their valuable feedback.  ...

A query language for understanding component interactions in production systems

Adam J. Oliner, Alex Aiken
2010 Proceedings of the 24th ACM International Conference on Supercomputing - ICS '10  
When something unexpected happens in a large production system, administrators must first perform a search to isolate which components and component interactions are likely to be involved.  ...  To facilitate the search process, we present a query language and a method for computing these queries that makes minimal assumptions about the available data.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors would like to thank the following people for their time, expertise, and data: Russ Allbery, Kevin Hall, Jon Stearley, Mike Montemerlo and the rest of the Stanford Racing Team  ...
