    77=== What is the GENIDesktop ? ===

    9 The GENIDesktop is a tool that supports multiple ways to “visualize” a slice, and makes it easy to apply an operation to a subset of resources within a slice. It basically uses a file-browser-like interface that users are familiar with. The analogy is selecting files in a file browser and applying an operation (regardless of the “view” – e.g., list view, icon view, detailed view, etc.). GENIDesktop provides many function we called '''Modules''' to perform commonly used operations like ssh, file-copy, running a command, rebooting nodes , etc . It also provides graphs and table data for various statistics collected from the nodes in your slice. This done  with the use of GENIDesktop monitoring tools that interacts with your experiment’s resources over the control plane via the [wiki:GENIExperimenter/Tutorials/GENIDesktop/Global_Node Global Node].This monitoring framework adds software to their slice that will automatically measure and monitor network traffic and other information about the slice.The GENIDesktop is also integrated with JACKS which can be used to create and modify rspecs topologies.

It basically uses a file-browser-like interface that users are familiar with. The analogy is selecting files in a file browser and applying an operation (regardless of the “view” – e.g., list view, icon view, detailed view, etc.). GENIDesktop supports extensible functionality we called '''Modules''' that perform commonly used operations like ssh, file-copy, running a command, rebooting nodes , etc, as can also be used to support custom functionality.   It also provides graphs and table data for various statistics collected from the nodes in a slice.
