DB4AI

openGauss当前版本支持了原生DB4AI能力,通过引入原生AI算子,简化操作流程,充分利用数据库优化器、执行器的优化与执行能力,获得高性能的数据库内模型训练能力。更简化的模型训练与预测流程、更高的性能表现,让开发者在更短时间内能更专注于模型的调优与数据分析上,而避免了碎片化的技术栈与冗余的代码实现。

当前版本的DB4AI支持基于SGD算子的逻辑回归(目前支持二分类任务)、线性回归和支持向量机算法(分类任务),以及基于K-Means算子的Kmeans聚类算法。

  1. 使用“CREATE MODEL”语句可以进行模型的创建和训练。

    模型训练SQL语句,现有一个数据集为kmeans_2d,该表的数据内容如下:

    openGauss=# select * from kmeans_2d;
     id |              position
    ----+-------------------------------------
      1 | {74.5268815685995,88.2141939294524}

    (20 rows)
    

    该表的字段position的数据类型为 double precision[].

    从kmeans_2d训练集中指定position为特征列,使用kmeans算法,创建并保存模型point_kmeans。

    openGauss=# CREATE MODEL point_kmeans USING kmeans FEATURES position FROM kmeans_2d WITH num_centroids=3;
    NOTICE:  Hyperparameter max_iterations takes value DEFAULT (10)
    NOTICE:  Hyperparameter num_centroids takes value 3
    NOTICE:  Hyperparameter tolerance takes value DEFAULT (0.000010)
    NOTICE:  Hyperparameter batch_size takes value DEFAULT (10)
    NOTICE:  Hyperparameter num_features takes value DEFAULT (2)
    NOTICE:  Hyperparameter distance_function takes value DEFAULT (L2_Squared)
    NOTICE:  Hyperparameter seeding_function takes value DEFAULT (Random++)
    NOTICE:  Hyperparameter verbose takes value DEFAULT (0)
    NOTICE:  Hyperparameter seed takes value DEFAULT (0)
    MODEL CREATED. PROCESSED 1
    

    上述命令中:

    • “CREATE MODEL”语句用于模型的训练和保存。

    • USING关键字指定算法名称。

    • FEATURES用于指定训练模模型的特征,需根据训练数据表的列名添加。

    • TARGET指定模型的训练目标,它可以是训练所需数据表的列名,也可以是一个表达式,例如: price > 10000。

    • WITH用于指定训练模型时的超参数。当超参未被用户进行设置的时候,框架会使用默认数值。

      针对不同的算子,框架支持不同的超参组合,见表2

      表 2 算子支持的超参

    模型保存成功,则返回创建成功信息如下。

  2. 查看模型信息。

    当训练完成后模型会被存储到系统表gs_model_warehouse中。系统表gs_model_warehouse可以查看到关于模型本身和训练过程的相关信息。

    用户可以通过查看系统表的方式查看模型,例如查看模型名为“point_kmeans”的SQL语句如下:

    openGauss=# select * from gs_model_warehouse where modelname='point_kmeans';
    -[ RECORD 1 ]---------+----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    modelname             | point_kmeans

    modeldata             |
    weight                |

  3. 利用已存在的模型做推断任务。

    使用“SELECT”和“PREDICT BY”关键字利用已有模型完成推断任务。

    查询语法:SELECT…PREDICT BY…(FEATURES…)…FROM…;

    openGauss=# SELECT id, PREDICT BY point_kmeans (FEATURES position) as pos FROM (select * from kmeans_2d limit 10);
     id | pos
    ----+-----
      1 |   2
      2 |   2
      3 |   1
      4 |   3
      5 |   2
      6 |   2
      7 |   2
      8 |   1
      9 |   3
     10 |   1
    (10 rows)
    

    针对相同的推断任务,同一个模型的结果是稳定的。且基于相同的超参数和训练集训练的模型也具有稳定性,同时AI模型训练存在随机成分(每个batch的数据分布、随机梯度下降),所以不同的模型间的计算表现、结果允许存在小的差别。

  4. 查看执行计划。

    使用explain语句可对“CREATE MODEL”和“PREDICT BY”的模型训练或预测过程中的执行计划进行分析。Explain关键字后可直接拼接CREATE MODEL/ PREDICT BY语句(子句),也可接可选的参数,支持的参数见表4

    表 4 EXPLAIN支持的参数

    参数名

    (2 rows)
    
  5. 异常场景。

    • 训练阶段。

      • 场景一:当超参数的设置超出取值范围,模型训练失败,返回ERROR,并提示错误,例如:

        openGauss=# CREATE MODEL patient_linear_regression USING linear_regression FEATURES second_attack,treatment TARGET trait_anxiety  FROM patients WITH optimizer='aa';
        NOTICE:  Hyperparameter batch_size takes value DEFAULT (1000)
        NOTICE:  Hyperparameter decay takes value DEFAULT (0.950000)
        NOTICE:  Hyperparameter learning_rate takes value DEFAULT (0.800000)
        NOTICE:  Hyperparameter max_iterations takes value DEFAULT (100)
        NOTICE:  Hyperparameter max_seconds takes value DEFAULT (0)
        NOTICE:  Hyperparameter optimizer takes value aa
        ERROR:  Invalid hyperparameter value for optimizer. Valid values are: gd, ngd. (default is gd)
        
      • 场景二:当模型名称已存在,模型保存失败,返回ERROR,并提示错误原因:

        openGauss=# CREATE MODEL patient_linear_regression USING linear_regression FEATURES second_attack,treatment TARGET trait_anxiety  FROM patients;
        NOTICE:  Hyperparameter batch_size takes value DEFAULT (1000)
        NOTICE:  Hyperparameter decay takes value DEFAULT (0.950000)
        NOTICE:  Hyperparameter learning_rate takes value DEFAULT (0.800000)
        NOTICE:  Hyperparameter max_iterations takes value DEFAULT (100)
        NOTICE:  Hyperparameter max_seconds takes value DEFAULT (0)
        NOTICE:  Hyperparameter optimizer takes value DEFAULT (gd)
        NOTICE:  Hyperparameter tolerance takes value DEFAULT (0.000500)
        NOTICE:  Hyperparameter seed takes value DEFAULT (0)
        NOTICE:  Hyperparameter verbose takes value DEFAULT (FALSE)
        NOTICE:  GD shuffle cache size 5502
        ERROR:  The model name "patient_linear_regression" already exists in gs_model_warehouse.
        
      • 场景三:FEATURE或者TARGETS列是*,返回ERROR,并提示错误原因:

        openGauss=# CREATE MODEL patient_linear_regression USING linear_regression FEATURES *  TARGET trait_anxiety  FROM
        patients;
        ERROR:  FEATURES clause cannot be *
        -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------、
        openGauss=# CREATE MODEL patient_linear_regression USING linear_regression FEATURES second_attack,treatment TARGET *  FROM patients;
        ERROR:  TARGET clause cannot be *
        
      • 场景四:对于无监督学习方法使用TARGET关键字,或者在监督学习方法中不适用TARGET关键字,均会返回ERROR,并提示错误原因:

        openGauss=# CREATE MODEL patient_linear_regression USING linear_regression FEATURES second_attack,treatment FROM patients;
        ERROR:  Supervised ML algorithms require TARGET clause
        -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        CREATE MODEL patient_linear_regression USING linear_regression TARGET trait_anxiety  FROM patients;   ERROR:  Supervised ML algorithms require FEATURES clause
        
      • 场景五:当GUC参数statement_timeout设置了时长,训练超时执行的语句将被终止:执行CREATE MODEL语句。训练集的大小、训练轮数(iteration)、提前终止条件(tolerance、max_seconds)、并行线程数(nthread)等参数都会影响训练时长。当时长超过数据库限制,语句被终止模型训练失败。

    • 推断阶段。

      • 场景六:当模型名在系统表中查找不到,数据库会报ERROR:

        openGauss=# select id, PREDICT BY patient_logistic_regression (FEATURES second_attack,treatment) FROM patients;
        ERROR:  There is no model called "patient_logistic_regression".
        
      • 场景七:当做推断任务FEATURES的数据维度和数据类型与训练集存在不一致,将报ERROR,并提示错误原因,例如:

        openGauss=# select id, PREDICT BY patient_linear_regression (FEATURES second_attack) FROM patients;
        ERROR:  Invalid number of features for prediction, provided 1, expected 2
        CONTEXT:  referenced column: patient_linear_regression_pred
        -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        openGauss=# select id, PREDICT BY patient_linear_regression (FEATURES 1,second_attack,treatment) FROM patients;
        ERROR:  Invalid number of features for prediction, provided 3, expected 2
        CONTEXT:  referenced column: patient_linear_regression_pre
