SharedStorage section - AWS ParallelCluster

SharedStorage section

(Optional) The shared storage settings for the cluster.

AWS ParallelCluster supports Amazon EBS, FSx for ONTAP, and FSx for OpenZFS shared storage volumes or Amazon EFS and FSx for Lustre shared storage file systems.

In the SharedStorage section, you can define either external or managed storage:

  • External storage refers to an existing volume or file system that you manage. AWS ParallelCluster doesn't create or delete it.

  • AWS ParallelCluster managed storage refers to a volume or file system that AWS ParallelCluster created and can delete.

For shared storage quotas and more information about configuring your shared storage, see Shared storage in Using AWS ParallelCluster.

Note

If AWS Batch is used as a scheduler, FSx for Lustre is only available on the cluster head node.

If the cluster is configured to span multiple Availability Zones, you must define a file system mount target in each Availability Zone that's used by the cluster.

When this is specified, only MountDir can be specified. No other EfsSettings can be specified.

If you set this option, the following must be true for the file systems that you define:
  • The file systems have an existing mount target in each of the cluster's Availability Zones, with inbound and outbound NFS traffic allowed from the HeadNode and ComputeNodes. Multiple availability zones are configured in Scheduling / SlurmQueues / Networking / SubnetIds.

    To make sure traffic is allowed between the cluster and file system, you can do one of the following:
    • Configure the security groups of the mount target to allow the traffic to and from the CIDR or prefix list of cluster subnets.

      Note

      AWS ParallelCluster validates that ports are open and that the CIDR or prefix list is configured. AWS ParallelCluster doesn't validate the content of CIDR block or prefix list.

    • Set custom security groups for cluster nodes by using SlurmQueues / Networking / SecurityGroups and HeadNode / Networking / SecurityGroups. The custom security groups must be configured to allow traffic between the cluster and the file system.

      Note

      If all cluster nodes use custom security groups, AWS ParallelCluster only validates that the ports are open. AWS ParallelCluster doesn't validate that the source and destination are properly configured.

Warning

EFS OneZone is only supported if all compute nodes and the head node are in the same Availability Zone. EFS OneZone can have only one mount target.

Note

Multiple Availability Zones is added in AWS ParallelCluster version 3.4.0.

DeploymentType (Optional, String)

Specifies the deployment type of the FSx for Lustre file system. Supported values are SCRATCH_1, SCRATCH_2, PERSISTENT_1, and PERSISTENT_2. The default value is SCRATCH_2.

Choose SCRATCH_1 and SCRATCH_2 deployment types when you need temporary storage and shorter term processing of data. The SCRATCH_2 deployment type provides in transit encryption of data and higher burst throughput capacity than SCRATCH_1.

Choose PERSISTENT_1 deployment type for longer term storage and for throughput focused workloads that aren’t latency-sensitive. PERSISTENT_1 supports encryption of data in transit. It's available in all AWS Regions where FSx for Lustre is available.

Choose PERSISTENT_2 deployment type for longer term storage and for latency sensitive workloads that require the highest levels of IOPS and throughput. PERSISTENT_2 supports SSD storage and offers higher PerUnitStorageThroughput (up to 1000 MB/s/TiB). PERSISTENT_2 is available in a limited number of AWS Regions. For more information about deployment types and the list of AWS Regions where PERSISTENT_2 is available, see File system deployment options for FSx for Lustre in the Amazon FSx for Lustre User Guide.

Encryption of data in transit is automatically enabled when you access SCRATCH_2, PERSISTENT_1, or PERSISTENT_2 deployment type file systems from Amazon EC2 instances that support this feature.

Encryption of data in transit for SCRATCH_2, PERSISTENT_1, and PERSISTENT_2 deployment types is supported when accessed from supported instance types in supported AWS Regions. For more information, see Encrypting data in transit in the Amazon FSx for Lustre User Guide.

Note

Support for the PERSISTENT_2 deployment type was added with AWS ParallelCluster version 3.2.0.

Update policy: If this setting is changed, the update is not allowed.

ImportedFileChunkSize (Optional, Integer)

For files that are imported from a data repository, this value determines the stripe count and maximum amount of data for each file (in MiB) that's stored on a single physical disk. The maximum number of disks that a single file can be striped across is limited by the total number of disks that make up the file system.

The default chunk size is 1,024 MiB (1 GiB) and can go as high as 512,000 MiB (500 GiB). Amazon S3 objects have a maximum size of 5 TB.

Note

This parameter isn't supported for file systems using the PERSISTENT_2 deployment type. For instructions on how to configure data repositories associations, see Linking your file system to an S3 bucket in the Amazon FSx for Lustre User Guide.

Update policy: If this setting is changed, the update is not allowed.

DataCompressionType (Optional, String)

Sets the data compression configuration for the FSx for Lustre file system. The supported value is LZ4. LZ4 indicates that data compression is turned on with the LZ4 algorithm. When DataCompressionType isn't specified, data compression is turned off when the file system is created.

For more information, see Lustre data compression.

Update policy: This setting can be changed during an update.

ExportPath (Optional, String)

The path in Amazon S3 where the root of your FSx for Lustre file system is exported. This setting is only supported when the ImportPath parameter is specified. The path must use the same Amazon S3 bucket as specified in ImportPath. You can provide an optional prefix to which new and changed data is to be exported from your FSx for Lustre file system. If an ExportPath value is not provided, FSx for Lustre sets a default export path, s3://import-bucket/FSxLustre[creation-timestamp]. The timestamp is in UTC format, for example s3://import-bucket/FSxLustre20181105T222312Z.

The Amazon S3 export bucket must be the same as the import bucket specified by ImportPath. If you only specify a bucket name, such as s3://import-bucket, you get a 1:1 mapping of file system objects to Amazon S3 bucket objects. This mapping means that the input data in Amazon S3 is overwritten on export. If you provide a custom prefix in the export path, such as s3://import-bucket/[custom-optional-prefix], FSx for Lustre exports the contents of your file system to that export prefix in the Amazon S3 bucket.

Note

This parameter isn't supported for file systems using the PERSISTENT_2 deployment type. Configure data repositories associations as described in Linking your file system to an S3 bucket in the Amazon FSx for Lustre User Guide.

Update policy: If this setting is changed, the update is not allowed.

ImportPath (Optional, String)

The path to the Amazon S3 bucket (including the optional prefix) that you're using as the data repository for your FSx for Lustre file system. The root of your FSx for Lustre file system will be mapped to the root of the Amazon S3 bucket you select. An example is s3://import-bucket/optional-prefix. If you specify a prefix after the Amazon S3 bucket name, only object keys with that prefix are loaded into the file system.

Note

This parameter isn't supported for file systems using the PERSISTENT_2 deployment type. Configure data repositories associations as described in Linking your file system to an S3 bucket in the Amazon FSx for Lustre User Guide.

Update policy: If this setting is changed, the update is not allowed.

WeeklyMaintenanceStartTime (Optional, String)

The preferred start time to perform weekly maintenance. It's in the "d:HH:MM" format in the UTC+0 time zone. For this format, d is the weekday number from 1 through 7, beginning with Monday and ending with Sunday. Quotation marks are required for this field.

Update policy: This setting can be changed during an update.

AutomaticBackupRetentionDays (Optional, Integer)

The number of days to retain automatic backups. Setting this to 0 disables automatic backups. The supported range is 0-90. The default is 0. This setting is only valid for use with PERSISTENT_1 and PERSISTENT_2 deployment types. For more information, see Working with backups in the Amazon FSx for Lustre User Guide.

Update policy: This setting can be changed during an update.

CopyTagsToBackups (Optional, Boolean)

If true, copy the tags for the FSx for Lustre file system to backups. This value defaults to false. If it's set to true, all tags for the file system are copied to all automatic and user-initiated backups where the user doesn't specify tags. If this value is true, and you specify one or more tags, only the specified tags are copied to backups. If you specify one or more tags when creating a user-initiated backup, no tags are copied from the file system, regardless of this value. This setting is only valid for use with PERSISTENT_1 and PERSISTENT_2 deployment types.

Update policy: If this setting is changed, the update is not allowed.

DailyAutomaticBackupStartTime (Optional, String)

A recurring daily time, in the HH:MM format. HH is the zero-padded hour of the day (00-23). MM is the zero-padded minute of the hour (00-59). For example, 05:00 specifies 5 A.M. daily. This setting is only valid for use with PERSISTENT_1 and PERSISTENT_2 deployment types.

Update policy: This setting can be changed during an update.

PerUnitStorageThroughput (Required for PERSISTENT_1 and PERSISTENT_2 deployment types, Integer)

Describes the amount of read and write throughput for each 1 tebibyte of storage, in MB/s/TiB. File system throughput capacity is calculated by multiplying file system storage capacity (TiB) by the PerUnitStorageThroughput (MB/s/TiB). For a 2.4 TiB file system, provisioning 50 MB/s/TiB of PerUnitStorageThroughput yields 120 MB/s of file system throughput. You pay for the amount of throughput that you provision. This corresponds to the PerUnitStorageThroughput property.

Valid values:

  • PERSISTENT_1 SSD storage: 50, 100, 200 MB/s/TiB.

  • PERSISTENT_1 HDD storage: 12, 40 MB/s/TiB.

  • The file system must be associated to a security group that allows inbound and outbound TCP and UDP traffic through ports 111, 2049, 20001, 20002, and 20003.

Make sure that traffic is allowed between the cluster and file system by doing one of the following:

  • Configure the security groups of the file system to allow the traffic to and from the CIDR or prefix list of cluster subnets.

    Note

    AWS ParallelCluster validates that ports are open and that the CIDR or prefix list is configured. AWS ParallelCluster doesn't validate the content of CIDR block or prefix list.

  • Set custom security groups for cluster nodes by using SlurmQueues / Networking / SecurityGroups and HeadNode / Networking / SecurityGroups. The custom security groups must be configured to allow traffic between the cluster and the file system.

    Note

    If all cluster nodes use custom security groups, AWS ParallelCluster only validates that the ports are open. AWS ParallelCluster doesn't validate that the source and destination are properly configured.

Update policy: If this setting is changed, the update is not allowed.
