4.8) GENI User Portal Design Topic

a) Goal

Provide a first-order definition of a "GENI User Portal", combining the capabilities of the various "portal services" that have been implemented to date, so that GENI I&M users can use the "GENI User Portal" when they conduct experiments or instrument infrastructure.

b) Team

Jim Griffioen and/or Charles ? (INSTOOLS and GEMINI, U Kentucky)
Max Ott and/or Christoph Dwertmann (NICTA)
Chris Small (NetKarma, IU)
Ahmed El-Hassany (IU)
Jeanne Ohren (GPO)
Harry Mussman (GPO)

c) Meetings

d) Discussion

1) Vision

Towards Max Ott's vision for experiment support

NICTA Lab Notebook Service capabilities
– Wiki: Keep notes with references
– Schedule & monitor runs
– Analysis with integrated R server
– Repository for all artifacts

2) Current and Planned Portal Services

a) INSTOOLS portal and web services (U Kentucky)

configuration

INSTOOLS Portal service capabilities:

  • Resident in browser, with FLACK experiment control tool
  • Provides a way for experimenter to find all web servers in experimenter's slice
  • Allows experimenter to move data to archive service (local (U Kentucky) or remote (CNRI)

INSTOOLS Web service:

  • One is resident in each Measurement Controller (MC)
  • Allows experimenter to configure measurements
  • Allows experimenter to view topology and view measured data
  • Allows experimenter to open a command line into any node, using vnc protocol

b) LAMP Periscope services (U Delaware+)

c) Measurement Data Archive services (GPO, CNRI)

d) NICTA Lab Notebook services

e) GIMI Portal services

f) GEMINI Portal services

Expected to include some or all of:

  • LAMP Periscope services
  • INSTOOLS Portal service
  • INSTOOLS web service
  • more?

3) GENI User Portal Definition

Basic configuration

Partitions for different users; how are they managed? can they be assigned to users using WINLAB login service?
Are these portal services really a combination of gateway and user workspace services, with various available tools?

Summary of portal services use cases (Jeannie Ohren, GPO)

Portal services use cases

– User’s window into GENI
– Conveniently and easily manage GENI resources, I&M data, and experiment results
– A place to control the experiment
– Works for both short/small (weeks-months?) and long/large (months-years?) experiments
– MAP (Measurement, Analysis, Presentation)
– A place to store and retrieve experiment results and analysis (Lab book?)
– Largely stateless? (Does this conflict with 4?)
– A way to get to necessary GENI experimenter tools such as Flack, GUSH, OMNI
– Manages moving I&M data to archive (iRODS?) with metadata (MDOD?)
– Allows the public to access published experiment results
