Parallelization – is it faster?

I have earlier written about parallelizing I/O. It is not that surprising that you can overload your disk with parallel requests and get worse I/O than serial access. What may be more surprising is that parallelizing CPU intensive tasks may not benefit from hyperthreading.

# Compress /dev/zero for 5 seconds
doit() { seq $1 |parallel -N0 –timeout 5 -j$1 -u zstd ‘<‘ /dev/zero | wc -c ; }
export -f doit
seq $(parallel –number-of-threads) | parallel -j1 –shuf –tag doit :::: – ::: {1..5} 2>/dev/null

This computes how much data `zstd` generates when run for 5 seconds. It does this with different number of jobs in parallel. On my system with 4 cores/8 threads you might expect a big increase from 1 to 4 jobs in parallel and a small increase from 5 to 8 jobs.

That is not what is happening.

I see the big increase from 1 to 4 jobs in parallel (as expected), but more than 4 jobs in parallel is actually slower than running 4 in parallel.

On my 2 core/4 thread machine the performance increases until 3 jobs are run in parallel – both 2 and 4 jobs in parallel are slower.

`zstd` is not a representative tool – normally you will get an increase in performance up to the number of threads – less and less increase for each thread. `gzip` behaves more like one would expect:  On my 2 core/4 thread machine gives 1 job = 50%, 2 jobs = 75%, 3 jobs = 90%, 4 jobs in parallel = 100%.

Excuses for not installing GNU Parallel

Over the time I have seen people, who could benefit from using GNU Parallel, give excuses why they should not use GNU Parallel. I believe most of the reasons are based in a lack of due diligence: To avoid doing a little work now, they end up doing a lot of work later.

Here are the most popular excuses I have met so far:

“GNU Parallel is not installed everywhere”

It is true that GNU Parallel is not installed everywhere. But it is designed to be extremely easy to install. We are literally talking a matter of seconds:

$ (wget -O - pi.dk/3 || lynx -source pi.dk/3 || curl pi.dk/3/ || \
       fetch -o - http://pi.dk/3 ) > install.sh
$ sha1sum install.sh | grep 3374ec53bacb199b245af2dda86df6c9
12345678 3374ec53 bacb199b 245af2dd a86df6c9
$ md5sum install.sh | grep 029a9ac06e8b5bc6052eac57b2c3c9ca
029a9ac0 6e8b5bc6 052eac57 b2c3c9ca
$ sha512sum install.sh | grep f517006d9897747bed8a4694b1acba1b
40f53af6 9e20dae5 713ba06c f517006d 9897747b ed8a4694 b1acba1b 1464beb4
60055629 3f2356f3 3e9c4e3c 76e3f3af a9db4b32 bd33322b 975696fc e6b23cfb
$ bash install.sh

Or if you want full control over the process: http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/parallel.git/tree/README

“I do not have root access”

GNU Parallel does not require root access to do a personal installation, so you do not need root access to install it. Just do:

./configure --prefix=$HOME && make && make install

or:

$ (wget -O - pi.dk/3 || lynx -source pi.dk/3 || curl pi.dk/3/ || \
       fetch -o - http://pi.dk/3 ) > install.sh
$ sha1sum install.sh | grep 3374ec53bacb199b245af2dda86df6c9
12345678 3374ec53 bacb199b 245af2dd a86df6c9
$ md5sum install.sh | grep 029a9ac06e8b5bc6052eac57b2c3c9ca
029a9ac0 6e8b5bc6 052eac57 b2c3c9ca
$ sha512sum install.sh | grep f517006d9897747bed8a4694b1acba1b
40f53af6 9e20dae5 713ba06c f517006d 9897747b ed8a4694 b1acba1b 1464beb4
60055629 3f2356f3 3e9c4e3c 76e3f3af a9db4b32 bd33322b 975696fc e6b23cfb
$ bash install.sh

GNU Parallel can also be embedded in a shell script on a system that has GNU Parallel installed by doing this:

parallel --embed > newscript

Edit the end of newscript and copy newscript to the other system.

“I am not allowed to install software”

If you are allowed to run your own scripts, you can run GNU Parallel just like you would any of your own scripts. All you need to do is to copy the file parallel and use it the same way you would your own scripts.

“Using GNU Parallel is overkill”

Overkill usually means that setting up the program and running it will take longer than just running the job in a different way. Setting up GNU Parallel can be done in 10 seconds, so the risk is quite limited.

“Keeping GNU Parallel up to date is too hard”

By installing even an old version you most likely will save time by using it. The basic functionality has remained the same for years.

You only need to upgrade if you need some of the newer functionality or if you are being hit by a bug that is fixed in newer versions. Most of the recent bugs are related to rare race conditions and will never affect most people.

Updating to the newest version is also a matter of seconds:

$ (wget -O - pi.dk/3 || lynx -source pi.dk/3 || curl pi.dk/3/ || \
       fetch -o - http://pi.dk/3 ) > install.sh
$ sha1sum install.sh | grep 3374ec53bacb199b245af2dda86df6c9
12345678 3374ec53 bacb199b 245af2dd a86df6c9
$ md5sum install.sh | grep 029a9ac06e8b5bc6052eac57b2c3c9ca
029a9ac0 6e8b5bc6 052eac57 b2c3c9ca
$ sha512sum install.sh | grep f517006d9897747bed8a4694b1acba1b
40f53af6 9e20dae5 713ba06c f517006d 9897747b ed8a4694 b1acba1b 1464beb4
60055629 3f2356f3 3e9c4e3c 76e3f3af a9db4b32 bd33322b 975696fc e6b23cfb
$ bash install.sh

“I do not understand Perl”

Unless you are going to change GNU Parallel you do not need to know Perl to use the tool – just like you do not need to learn kernel programming to use Linux.

“GNU Parallel is too hard to compile and install”

This excuse is typically from users who never even tried to install it. GNU Parallel is written in Perl and is compatible with even very old versions of Perl. So even if your system is too limited to do the ‘./configure && make && make install’ then you should always be able to do the ‘cp parallel $HOME/bin’.

If wget, gpg, sha1sum, and bzip2 are installed this ought to work:

$ (wget -O - pi.dk/3 || lynx -source pi.dk/3 || curl pi.dk/3/ || \
       fetch -o - http://pi.dk/3 ) > install.sh
$ sha1sum install.sh | grep 3374ec53bacb199b245af2dda86df6c9
12345678 3374ec53 bacb199b 245af2dd a86df6c9
$ md5sum install.sh | grep 029a9ac06e8b5bc6052eac57b2c3c9ca
029a9ac0 6e8b5bc6 052eac57 b2c3c9ca
$ sha512sum install.sh | grep f517006d9897747bed8a4694b1acba1b
40f53af6 9e20dae5 713ba06c f517006d 9897747b ed8a4694 b1acba1b 1464beb4
60055629 3f2356f3 3e9c4e3c 76e3f3af a9db4b32 bd33322b 975696fc e6b23cfb
$ bash install.sh

“My software should not depend on non-standard software”

Why not distribute GNU Parallel next to your software? The beauty of free software is that you are in fact allowed to do this – even if your software is non-free.

SM is an example of software co-distributing GNU Parallel https://github.com/sm/sm/blob/master/README.md

GNU Parallel can also be embedded in a shell script using:

parallel --embed > newscript

Edit the end of newscript.

“GNU Parallel is not as well tested as xargs”

I have seen this argument from people who then did something like this:

find mydir -print |
  grep -f file_with_some_stuff |
  tail |
  xargs -n1 -P 10 mycommand |
  grep other_stuff

So while xargs may be well tested they basically screwed themselves over by using xargs in a way that is not safe – by design.

The above has 2 major issues:

  • If file names in mydir contain space, ‘ or ” xargs will interpret these and mycommand will not be run on those files. And it is quite common for users (especially GUI users) to create files with space, ‘ or “.
  • The output from the parallel running mycommands is not guaranteed to not mix, so you risk having half a line from one instance of mycommand with the rest of the line from another instance.

These are both risks you avoid by using GNU Parallel. The scary part is that they most likely will not notice the problem on their test set, and the problem will therefore only be discovered after their script has been put into production.

There is also a minor issue:

  • If the file names in mydir contain \n (newline).

This will fail in GNU Parallel, too (unless using -0). But I have yet to see a file name with a newline in it that was created by normal users. This only happens with malicious users.

Dealing with the problems from xargs

Some are aware of the problems with xargs and then spend a lot of effort trying to fix them:

  • They quote ‘ ” and space (though sometimes they forget some of them).
  • They try to un-mix the output by wrapping the output with markers and then post process the output based on these markers, but they never manage to fix the half-line issue.

So while xargs is well tested, their fixups are not, thereby defeating the purpose of only using well tested software. All in all they spend much more effort on building their own fixup around xargs than it would take to simply install GNU Parallel.

– o –

Being the developer of GNU Parallel I am of course biased: I think everyone using the command line owe it to themselves and to their command line to have GNU Parallel in their toolbox.

Luk pengekassen for tilflyttere til socialt belastede områder

Kan vi lave bedre integration for de samme midler? Vi kunne prøve at lukke pengekassen, hvis man flytter til socialt belastede områder.

Danmarks Statistik laver hvert år en undersøgelse af indvandrere. Gang på gang viser tallene, at når man korrigerer for socioøkonomisk status, så er folk fra Mellemøsten og Afrika overrepræsenterede blandt de kriminelle, mens folk fra Sydøstasien er underrepræsenterede. (F.eks. http://www.dst.dk/Site/Dst/Udgivelser/GetPubFile.aspx?id=20704&sid=indv2016 side 86)

Det er mit indtryk, at hvis indvanderne bliver opsuget i samfundet, så er der færre problemer. Det bygger jeg på landsbyen, som jeg kommer fra. Her har man flere gange modtaget flygtninge, der svarer til 1% af hele landsbyens størrelse, og det er lykkedes at få disse til at blive en helt naturlig del af landsbysamfundet. Når jeg taler med lokale, så mener de, at det skyldes, at det ikke var muligt for flygtningene at holde sig for sig selv: De havde ikke en mulighed for at leve hele deres liv omgivet af folk med deres egen baggrund.

Jeg tror, vi kan modtage langt flere flygtninge og indvandrere, men ikke på den måde vi gør idag: Vi har ghettoer med sociale problemer, og disse er vi nødt til at gøre noget ved.

Jeg er ikke særlig glad for tvang, men har ikke noget imod at give (store) økonomiske incitamenter.

Mit forslag er: Fjern den offentlige forsørgelse for folk, der flytter til områder med sociale problemer.

Det er vigtigt at understrege, at man ikke rører ved støtten for folk, der ikke flytter. Man rører heller ikke ved støtten for folk, der flytter til områder, der ikke er socialt belastede. Det er også helt i orden at flytte til socialt belastede områder, men så skal man kunne klare sig uden offentlig forsørgelse.

Så ønsker du offentlig forsørgelse, så må du finde dig i, at hvis du vil flytte, så kan du kun flytte til 95% af Danmarks areal.

Hvis boligerne i ghetto-områderne ikke længere kan “fyldes op” med socialt belastede, så skulle markedskræfterne gerne over tid få boligerne i ghetto-områderne til at falde i pris, og på sigt blive så billige, at velfungerende borgere får lyst at flytte dertil. Og de borgere, der er knapt så velfungerende vil være spredt over et langt større område: Vi kan som lokalsamfund sagtens klare, at 1% kræver ekstrahjælp, men det kan virke drænende, hvis det er 25%.

Tidsbestemt elpris

Hvorfor er forhøjet elpris kl 18 en grøn ide? Eet ord: kogepuklen

Danskerne forbruger ikke el jævnt hen over døgnet. Lige omkring kl. 18 topper danskernes daglige elforbrug. Denne top kalder man populært for kogepuklen, da den bl.a. skyldes madlavning.

Kogepuklen betyder, at forbruget ikke kan dækkes af vedvarende energi, men at kulværker og gasturbiner sættes igang. Med andre ord er strømmen omkring kl. 18 den mest svinende og CO2-udledende.

Derfor er det grøn tænkning at flytte sit elforbrug væk fra denne periode.

Incitament

Hidtil har der ikke været nogen økonomisk grund til at ændre vaner, men nu forhøjer Radius sin elpris kl. 17-20 i vinterhalvåret.

Dermed bliver der også et økonomisk incitament til at flytte forbruget.

Flyt dit forbrug

Som moderne menneske kan du naturligvis ikke flytte hele dit el-forbrug væk fra perioden 17-20, men visse ting er faktisk ret nemme at flytte.

Alle moderne opvaskemaskiner har udskudt start (også kaldet tidsforvalg). Så istedet for at starte maskinen lige efter du har spist, så lad den vaske op midt om natten. Eller (hvis din opvaskemaskine larmer meget) få den til at vaske næste formiddag.

Alle moderne vaskemaskiner har også udskudt start. De larmer typisk så meget, at man ikke kan sove, når de centifugerer. Men de kan fint køre om eftermiddagen, så vasken lige er færdig, når man kommer hjem fra arbejde. Lige til at hænge op.

Hvis du har en vasketørremaskine, så kan du endda bede den om både at vaske og tørre, så tøjet er klar, når du kommer hjem fra arbejde. Tørretumbleren er nemlig også en strømsluger.

Har du en fryser, så sæt et tænd-og-sluk ur på, så fryseren ikke får strøm i de 3 timer 17-20. Fryseren kan sagtens holde varene kolde i de 3 timer. Hvis du ikke åbner dit køleskab hele tiden, så kan de fleste køleskabe også holde varene kølige i 3 timer uden strøm.

Problemfrit?

For de fleste vil det være problemfrit at ændre vaner, så noget af elforbruget flyttes uden for 17-20.

Men helt problemfrit er det ikke: De elmålere, der sættes op, respekterer ikke dit privatliv. De kan aflæses af elselskabet nårsomhelst, og det kan have ret voldsomme privatlivskonsekvenser. Man kan sagtens lave elmålere, som beskytter dit privatliv. Derfor skal du insistere på, at den fjernaflæste måler du får er baseret på Privacy-by-Design.

Python with braces

I have tried using Python for more serious work, but has been thrown off by its forced whitespace indentation. In Emacs I want to press TAB and get to the correct indentation level – no matter the code, so I have several times tried looking for a way to add braces to Python.

I would prefer if my preference for braces did not affect people who do not like braces, so I would like a conversion between the two systems. It could be an Emacs package, that fixed the braces after loading/before saving, so the saved file always contained whitespace, but the loaded file would be with braces.

I have now found a few projects that try to implement braces.

Pybraces

https://github.com/thatch/pybraces – tested 2017-06-29

Good

  • Nothing

Bad

  • demo0.py fails.

Python-with-braces

http://python-with-braces.appspot.com/ – tested 2017-06-29

Good

  • Nothing

Bad

  • failed to compile.

Bython

https://github.com/mathialo/bython – tested 2017-06-29

Good

  • Simple programs work.
  • Shebang works.
  • Compiling to no-braces (-c).

Bad

  • Mixing with indented code fails.
  • No way of converting no-braces => braces.
  • No man page.
