MikeMirzayanov's blog

By MikeMirzayanov, 5 years ago, translation, In English,

On 02.03.14 there was a serious technical failure: Codeforces and related infrastructure hard drives have been corrupted. Unfortunately, it turned out that in contrast to all other components, the Codeforces database was not replicated properly. Polygon and Gym files were not injured. However, the Codeforces data has been significantly damaged.

We've rolled back the system to the state on February 7. It will remove 22 days of Codeforces life. Immediate efforts will be directed at the total exclusion of such situations. This is a very serious loss for me personally, which I can only blame myself.

Many thanks for all of you who supported us on a temporary Codeforces page. You helped much to find motivation in this difficult situation.

Currently the Gym is disabled. It will be opened back soon. We will return official contests and gym trainings with problems (but not results).

Data to be recovered:

  • official contests with problems (but without results);
  • public trainings in Gym;
  • non-public trainings in Gym, but we do not know their owners — write me if you've prepared non-public training in Gym (not a mashup).

Sorry again for the inconvenience.

While everybody is so positive about this, I have to ask the question again that remained unanswered in the Disqus thread: Was this problem related to the increased load during Saturday's contest? Are there plans to make the infrastructure better at handling the high load? I suggested to think about ways to decrease the load on the testing machines in the future, such as having multiple test cases per input file or a TopCoder-like solution that works without heavy I/O. I don't know how this is currently implemented, but one could circumvent the need for input/output files altogether by connecting the processes STDIN/STDOUT to temporary in-memory pipes of which the checker holds the other end. Maybe this is how it's already done, I can't know.

    Maybe it was related, but the "higher load" could not cause the damage. Possibly just the other way around. Simply because this contest did not have a higher load than average. In fact, CF has seen contests with much higher load without any problems. Besides, how could higher software load damage hardware (hard drives, fixed spinning speed etc.) is beyond me...

    The TC solution is not good. In order to simplify the internal judging process, obfuscating information is added to the problems. For example, if you want large test cases, you need a random number generator; if you don't want solutions which rely on the test cases being random, you need to mix some specially prepared data and randomly generated ones; so that you wouldn't be asking the contestants to implement the random you want, you need to add the part of the code, and often a significant part of the statement's contents is not related to the problem at all. I don't really like looking for the needle of what I'm supposed to do in the haystack of garbage added just so the system testing could be faster. And TC actually doesn't have pretests, so it doesn't affect contest performance. I can wait for systests instead of wasting time during the contest.

      OK, I agree that the TopCoder approach by itself is too different from the Codeforces approach. What I meant is that instead of running a separate process for each test case, one could just dynamically load a user-implemented function into the tester's virtual address space and run several test cases on it, be it with STDIN/STDOUT bound to a pipe or by communicating with the program through arrays instead of I/O (obviously the size of with doesn't have to be arbitrarily restricted to 50 like on TC). The effect would be that I/O parsing is no longer a factor. I could also imagine adding a Scanner-like global object or a istream implementation in C++ that does not actually read from STDIN but from a stream of integer values provided by the tester.

        This will require bindings for all the languages that are supported by Codeforces and writing checker on each language too (or C binding, which is very unusable because I personally, for example, like STL and C++, which is not easy to bind).

          At least redirecting STDIN/STDOUT to/from a pipe to avoid disk I/O is language independent. The checker is also independent of the testee if you go that road.

            That can be useful for some problems, but tests generation is not fast sometimes (and can be even significantly slower than I/O) and can affect solution's performance by using processor's caches common for all cores.

            However, caching tests in RAM may be helpful.

            I think that testing machines, DB and webserver are all different machines, so there is no relation between DB crash and high load on testing machines.

              That is a good argument. If indeed testing is not a particular expensive task, what I said is irrelevant. I still have the feeling that it sometimes is.

            You forgot that the operating system will not read the same file 100 times from the disk if you tell it to do so. It will read it one time from the disk and 99 times from the RAM cache. And this is by default, without even using a ramdisk.

            You could, in theory, connect the program's stdout to the checker's stdin, but this should be handled carefully with regard to the runtime limits and security.

            At any rate, in most cases the time spent doing I/O is insignificant compared to the time spent computing the answer. I think it is the wrong aspect to overoptimize.

            I don't think the TopCoder approach is even remotely good, because

            • It requires the system to explicitly support all languages instead of just using standard I/O (that's why it's standard, it works everywhere)
            • It kind of merges the two entities "testing system" and "participant's solution", which should stay separate and independent of each other
            • It intrudes in my program, forces a particular data representation onto me, and differs from the traditional, intuitive I/O model
            • The solution becomes dependent on the system's interface and can't be easily used outside of it, for example,
            • How to test the solution locally? "Plugins" all the way?

    This is my last comment on codeforces. I hope you guys will give me a lot of negatives to reach upto contribution level of 0 or < 0 (whichever you prefer), because I think contribution does not mean anything in this kind of community where your ideas are only taken if your rating is good. No wonder if some red writes anything, he can get many likes but some less rated coders writes the same, he gets tons of negative votes. I am really not interested in interacting with this RATING based judgement kind of community.

I wonder if maybe this is an opportunity? Perhaps this unfortunate incident will result in better hardware, thus improving things in the long run :D

I too lost some rating (fortunately less than 100) but it is important to remember what rating means. Rating is supposed to be an (accurate as possible) estimate of your current skill level. Thus if you had a rating of whatever before the crash, if you truly deserved that rating you will get it back very soon! If you cannot after a long time, then the estimate was too high and you should not have been that rating in the first place ;)

Codeforces is still alive, it's a great news. However, something was wrong with Codeforces Round #227 (Div. 2). There's nothing in 'MY SUBMISSIONS' tab?

    i think that's because all the submissions made in that period of time (Feb 8 — Mar 2) have also been lost, along with all the other data!
    however now that the problems are back, u can just assume that u did not participate in the contests and solve them in practice as usual!

Hi, it's good that contests in that interval are back again. Will the rockethon contest be reimproted again as well?

Also can authors of contests 229-233 re-release the editorial?

Its really great to have codeforces back. But I think site and server maintenance should be improved.

First time becoming an expert, now back to specialist. But, it doesn't matter. As long as we all have fun in Codeforces. :)

    From Google cache, for example. Many blog posts have been restored so far.

I became grandmaster after CF #230. But now... it was lost. But NOT A PROBLEM, when Codeforces is back, everything is possible. Goodluck, Codeforces
