Abstract Modern particle physics produces volumes of experimental data that challenge any data processing system. To illustrate, the trigger system of the LHCb experiment at CERN must sustain a data rate of 4 TB/s, yet maintain real-time characteristics.
In this work, we report on ELPACO, a distributed event processing platform for scientific data. Its key characteristics are excellent scalability and high resource efficiency. ELPACO inherits its favorable scalability from Apache Storm, which we used as a basis for our platform. For resource efficiency, we tailored ELPACO to Eriador, a parallel, ARM-based hardware substrate with excellent energy/performance characteristics.
With experiments on realistic data, we confirm a linear scalability (throughput vs. core count) and a 2.5× improvement in energy efficiency compared to existing solutions.
