Archive: DRAFT Documents

These documents are listed here for archival purposes. They likely do not reflect current designs.

The following control framework documents have been drafted by the GPO to expand upon (and replace) the GENI Control Framework Architecture (CFA) document that was introduced at GEC3. PLEASE NOTE: All documents are still in DRAFT form. The overview documents are currently being reviewed by their respective teams, but their initial reviews have not been completed.

The community is invited to review these drafts and provide comments, additions or changes to the WG SE, Harry Mussman, at  hmussman@bbn.com .

We would also like to do interactive reviews, perhaps one or more 1-hour conference calls. Would you be interested in participating is such a call? If so, please contact the WG SE, Harry Mussman, at  hmussman@bbn.com

GENI Control Framework Requirements

GENI-SE-CF-RQ-01.3
This document defines the GENI control framework subsystem, and then specifies its requirements. It is a DRAFT, to be used for discussion in the GENI Control Framework working group. Once approved, it can be used as a guide to judge the completeness of prototype control framework designs, and as a guide to their continued evolution.

PlanetLab GENI Control Framework Overview

GENI-SE-CF-PLGO-01.2
This document provides an overview of the PlanetLab GENI control framework being implemented for Spiral 1, for use in Cluster B. It is a DRAFT, to be used for discussion in the GENI Control Framework working group. (Note: A review of this document by the PlanetLab team is underway, but has not yet been completed.) It provides a description of the PlanetLab GENI control framework structure, a summary of how it meets the requirements as presented in the “GENI Control Framework Requirements”, and a view of its implementation at the start and the finish of Spiral 1.
