Decision tree ensembles are commonly used in a wide range of applications and becoming the de facto algorithm for decision tree based classifiers. Different trees in an ensemble can be processed in parallel during tree inference, making them a suitable use case for FPGAs. Large tree ensembles, however, require careful mapping of trees to on-chip memory and management of memory accesses. As a result, existing FPGA solutions suffer from the inability to scale beyond tens of trees and lack the flexibility to support different tree ensembles. In this paper we present an FPGA tree ensemble classifier together with a software driver to efficiently manage the FPGA's memory resources. The classifier architecture efficiently utilizes the FPGA's resources to fit half a million tree nodes in on-chip memory, delivering up to 20× speedup over a 10-threaded CPU implementation when fully processing the tree ensemble on the FPGA. It can also combine the CPU and FPGA to scale to tree ensembles that do not fit in on-chip memory, achieving up to an order of magnitude speedup compared to a pure CPU implementation. In addition, the classifier architecture can be programmed at runtime to process varying tree ensemble sizes.

Dagstuhl Reports, October 2017
A number of physical limitations mandate radical changes in the way how we build computing hard- and software, and there is broad consensus that a stronger interaction between hard- and software communities is needed to meet the ever-growing demand for application performance. Under this motivation, representatives from various hard- and software communities have met at the Dagstuhl seminar "Databases on Future Hardware" to discuss the implications in the context of database systems. The outcome of the seminar was not only a much better understanding of each other's needs, constraints, and ways of thinking. Very importantly, the group identified topic areas that seem key for the ongoing shift, together with suggestions on how the field could move forward. During the seminar, it turned out that the future of databases is not only a question of technology. Rather, economic considerations have to be taken into account when building next-generation database engines.

Proceedings of the VLDB Endowment, Munich, Germany, August 2017
The ever increasing amount of data being handled in data centers causes an intrinsic inefficiency: moving data around is expensive in terms of bandwidth, latency, and power consumption, especially given the low computational complexity of many database operations. In this paper we explore near-data processing in database engines, i.e., the option of offloading part of the computation directly to the storage nodes. We implement our ideas in Caribou, an intelligent distributed storage layer incorporating many of the lessons learned while building systems with specialized hardware. Caribou provides access to DRAM/NVRAM storage over the network through a simple key-value store interface, with each storage node providing high-bandwidth near-data processing at line rate and fault tolerance through replication. The result is a highly efficient, distributed, intelligent data storage that can be used to both boost performance and reduce power consumption and real estate usage in the data center thanks to the micro-server architecture adopted.

Stochastic gradient descent (SGD) is a commonly used algorithm for training linear machine learning models. Based on vector algebra, it benefits from the inherent parallelism available in an FPGA. In this paper, we first present a single-precision floating-point SGD implementation on an FPGA that provides similar performance as a 10-core CPU. We then adapt the design to make it capable of processing low-precision data. The low-precision data is obtained from a novel compression scheme-called stochastic quantization, specifically designed for machine learning applications. We test both full-precision and low-precision designs on various regression and classification data sets. We achieve up to an order of magnitude training speedup when using low-precision data compared to a full-precision SGD on the same FPGA and a state-of-the-art multi-core solution, while maintaining the quality of training. We open source the designs presented in this paper.

High-throughput, low-latency networks are becoming a key element in database appliances and data processing systems to reduce the overhead of data movement. In this article, we focus on Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA), a feature increasingly available in modern networks enabling the network card to directly write to and read from main memory. RDMA has started to attract attention as a technical solution to quite a few performance bottlenecks in distributed data management but there is still much work to be done to make it an effective technology suitable for database engines. In this article, we identify several advantages and drawbacks of RDMA and related technologies, and propose new communication primitives that would bridge the gap between the operations provided by high-speed networks and the needs of data processing systems.

This technical report describes E-Cast: a uniform causal-total-order multicast protocol designed to implement fault tolerant, highly elastic, yet strongly consistent database engines in the cloud. In contrast to traditional group communication, the model underlying E-Cast defines multicast as a stateful routing problem. In this document, we provide a rigorous formalization of the routing problem, show how partial replication with strong consistency guarantees can be reduced to said routing problem, and present its efficient algorithmic solution, E-Cast.

We demonstrate a hardware implementation of a complex event processor, built on top of field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). Compared to CPU-based commodity systems, our solution shows distinctive advantages for stream monitoring tasks, e.g., wire-speed processing and predictable performance. The demonstration is based on a query-to-hardware compiler for complex event patterns that we presented at VLDB 2010 [1]. By example of a click stream monitoring application, we illustrate the inner workings of our compiler and indicate how FPGAs can act as efficient and reliable processors for event streams.

The rapidly increasing amount of data available for real-time analysis (i.e., so-called operational business intelligence) is creating an interesting opportunity for creative approaches to speeding up data processing algorithms. One such approach that is starting to become more common is using hardware accelerators for stream processing. Typically these accelerators are implemented on top of reconfigurable hardware, known as fieldprogrammable gate arrays (FPGAs). Though the value of FPGAs for data warehouses is gradually recognized by the database community, their true potential for various business analytic tasks is yet unexplored. In this line of research, we investigate FPGA technology in the context of extreme data processing looking for opportunities where FPGAs can be exploited to improve over classical CPU-based architectures. We introduce a framework for FPGA-accelerated (real-time) analytics including a query-tohardware compiler for static complex event detection, an XPath engine for dynamic query workloads, and templates for highspeed data mining operators in hardware.

In this demonstration we present the Perm provenance management system (PMS). Perm is capable of computing, storing and querying provenance information for the relational data model. Provenance is computed by using query rewriting techniques to annotate tuples with provenance information. Thus, provenance data and provenance computations are represented as relational data and queries and hence can be queried, stored and optimized using standard relational database techniques. This demo will show the complete Perm system and let attendants examine in detail the process of query rewriting and provenance retrieval on what is today the most complete data provenance system available.

Data Stream Management Systems (DSMS) operate under strict performance requirements. Key to meeting such requirements is to efficiently handle time-critical tasks such as managing internal states of continuous query operators, traffic on the queues between operators, as well as providing storage support for shared computation and archived data. In this paper, we introduce a general purpose storage management framework for DSMSs that performs these tasks based on a clean, loosely-coupled, and flexible system design that also facilitates performance optimization. An important contribution of the framework is that, in analogy to buffer management techniques in relational database systems, it uses information about the access patterns of streaming applications to tune and customize the performance of the storage manager. In the paper, we first analyze typical application requirements at different granularities in order to identify important tunable parameters and their corresponding values. Based on these parameters, we define a general-purpose storage management interface. Using the interface, a developer can use our SMS (Storage Manager for Streams) to generate a customized storage manager for streaming applications. We explore the performance and potential of SMS through a set of experiments using the Linear Road benchmark.

Data provenance is essential in applications such as scientific computing, curated databases, and data warehouses. Several systems have been developed that provide provenance functionality for the relational data model. These systems support only a small subset of SQL, a severe limitation in practice since most of the application domains that benefit from provenance information use complex queries. Such queries typically involve nested subqueries, aggregation and/or user defined functions. Without support for these constructs, a provenance management system is of limited use. In this paper we address this limitation by exploring the problem of provenance derivation when complex queries are involved. More precisely, we demonstrate that the widely used definition of Why-provenance fails in the presence of nested subqueries, and show how the definition can be modified to produce meaningful results for nested subqueries. We further present query rewrite rules to transform an SQL query into a query propagating provenance. The solution introduced in this paper allows us to track provenance information for a far wider subset of SQL than any of the existing approaches. We have incorporated these ideas into the Perm provenance management system engine and used it to evaluate the feasibility and performance of our approach.

        involved. More precisely, we demonstrate that the widely used
        definition of Why-provenance fails in the presence of nested
        subqueries, and show how the definition can be modified to
        produce meaningful results for nested subqueries. We further
        present query rewrite rules to transform an SQL query into a
        query propagating provenance. The solution introduced in this
        paper allows us to track provenance information for a far wider
        subset of SQL than any of the existing approaches. We have
        incorporated these ideas into the Perm provenance management
        system engine and used it to evaluate the feasibility and
        performance of our approach.

Int. J. Web Eng. Technol., January 2006
Business processes provide abstractions for modelling business protocols that define the correct interactions between two or more Web services (WS). It has been shown that it is possible to automatically derive role-specific processes from a global protocol definition and also statically verify the compliance of a local process with the corresponding global business process. In this paper, we show that a similar approach can be used at run-time. We propose to employ process-based tools to enforce that the messages exchanged between different WS comply with a given business protocol, both in terms of sequencing constraints and data flow characteristics. Our solution simplifies the implementation of WS because it helps to separate the concern of business protocol compliance from the actual service implementation.

	abstract = {Business processes provide abstractions for modelling business protocols that define the correct interactions between two or more Web services (WS). It has been shown that it is possible to automatically derive role-specific processes from a global protocol definition and also statically verify the compliance of a local process with the corresponding global business process. In this paper, we show that a similar approach can be used at run-time. We propose to employ process-based tools to enforce that the messages exchanged between different WS comply with a given business protocol, both in terms of sequencing constraints and data flow characteristics. Our solution simplifies the implementation of WS because it helps to separate the concern of business protocol compliance from the actual service implementation. To do so, we show how to transparently add a protocol enforcement layer to the WS messaging stack. Our experimental results indicate that this imposes a minimal overhead.},

PROSE (PROgrammable extenSions of sErvices), an open source project (http://prose.ethz.ch/), is an adaptive middleware platform based on Java for dynamic AOP which allows aspects to be woven, unwoven, or replaced at run time. Woven into a program, an aspect may change several units of functionality. Aspects are expressed in the same source language as the application (Java). PROSE provides middleware tools that allow run time monitoring of remote aspects. The PROSE workbench for weaving, unweaving and querying aspects is a monitoring tool which displays information about what aspects are currently inserted in the system, what join-points belong to each aspect, and what the join-points of the system are. Embedded into an Eclipse plug-in, this tool is also used to developing and running PROSE applications from Eclipse and allows run time monitoring of remote aspects, and provides a creation wizard that helps to create PROSE aspects. In this demonstration we present PROSE and its associated middleware tools. We show the flexibility of PROSE and how it has been embedded into Eclipse, and present a variety of examples of run time adaptation. In the first part of the demonstration we show how to modify the behavior of a running application by dynamically weaving an aspect that identifies places of interest in the application. After each weaving operation, we show that the running application has been adapted and we use the PROSE middleware tools to graphically display the join-points matched by the woven aspect. In the second part of the demonstration we show how easy is to create aspects that modify a program at run time using the creation wizard of the PROSE Development Tools for Eclipse. When an aspect is created, the user can select the PROSE crosscut types and pointcutters from a list. Then the code template for a PROSE aspect that defines an advice method and a poincut method will be generated. The aspects are then woven remotely into different VMs. After the weaving operation, we show that the running application has been adapted. In case of two running applications, we show that the aspects can be cut and pasted between distinct VMs using the PROSE workbench and also can be moved between distinct VMs by drag and drop using the PROSE plug-in for Eclipse. We also show how to insert and withdraw aspects transactionally. We start a transaction and then weave and unweave aspects into/from different VMs. Aspect insertions and withdrawals won't be activated until the transaction is committed. The transaction can also be aborted, leaving the application as if no insertion or withdrawal ever took place.
