This effort provides GENI with an on-demand measurement service used in forecasting, anomaly detection, and fault-location diagnosis in GENI experiments and GENI operations. The on-demand measurement service will be integrated into the ProtoGENI control framework and GENI operations (GMOC). The project will deploy a prototype measurement service to support operations and early experimenters use in the first year, and will revise the service in each development spiral to improve services and integration, based on GENI community feedback. The project will also analyze GENI privacy and security requirements for measured data, and prototype service to address appropriate requirements in each development spiral. The project will collaborate with related GENI measurement and security projects (e.g. University of Wisconsin's Instrumentation and Measurement for GENI) on a common GENI instrumentation and measurement architecture. The option years are for possible refinement and integration of OnTimeMeasure into the ProtoGENI control framework and tools.
OnTimeMeasure measurement service is now available to users of ProtoGENI/Emulab, and PlanetLab aggregates. Users can submit measurement requests, control the measurement service, and query measurement data within ProtoGENI and PlanetLab slices spanning geographically distributed sites within the GENI infrastructure.
To start using OnTimeMeasure, please first register at the researcher web-portal - http://ontime.oar.net. Upon registration, you will receive additional instructions.
For a hands-on, step-by-step tutorial, please refer to - Tutorial on OnTimeMeasure capabilities for Experimenters
OnTimeMeasure has also been integrated with other GENI projects:
OnTimeMeasure-ProtoGENI, OnTimeMeasure-PlanetLab - I&M service for GENI aggregate users
OnTimeMeasure-Gush - I&M service control through Experimenter workflow tool
OnTimeMeasure*-INSTOOLS** - Both active* and passive** measurements in experiment slice
OnTimeMeasure-CRON - I&M service for 10Gbps network path experiments
OnTimeMeasure-DOR - Persistent storage of measurement data in the GENI measurement archive
