  • Brief demo description

Demo Participants: Panayotis Antoniadis, Andy Bavier, Aki Nakao Affiliation: UPMC Sorbonne Universités, Princeton University, University of Tokyo

We will demonstrate a web-based resource management tool called MySlice, which makes it easy to list, filter and attach resources made available through PlanetLab’s SFA control framework, annotated with useful information from different monitoring sources (e.g., reliability and utilization over time, geographic and network location, and more).

A couple of nice features of MySlice are:

  • The way in which MySlice uses SFA’s delegation capabilities to permit an SFA client to run on a remote webserver.
  • The measurement-driven way in which resources can be selected by the user.
  • The fact that elements of MySlice are already in use as part of the standard PlanetLab web interface, used by hundreds of users.

This work is a product of the international cooperation between Princeton University, the University of Tokyo, and UPMC Sorbonne Universites, funded through GENI’s “Understanding Federation” grant. It takes place in the context of the global PlanetLab federation involving PlanetLab Central, PlanetLab Europe, and PlanetLab Japan.

This work has also received support from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement n°224263 - OneLab2.

(If you need to respond to something in this message, please update the ticket on the wiki, or send mail to Josh Smift and I can update it for you. Replies to will return an auto-response.)

Apologies for the delay in confirming your demo request, but we can in fact now confirm that the resources you requested will be available for your demo on Wednesday evening. (Including a full 30" x 40" posterboard.)

A few important general notes:

  • The tables in the demo room will be 60" x 34"; this is somewhat shorter than the 6' tables we've had at other demo sites.
  • There will be buses from the hotel to the demo site, starting at 15:30. If you want to drive to the site at any point during the day, you'll need a parking permit. Let us know BY OCTOBER 25TH if you need one, and we'll arrange for it to be available at the GENI registration desk at the hotel.
  • If you want to mail/ship anything demo-related to the conference, more information is on the GENI wiki (see below).

We'll be adding more information to between now and the conference. If you have any other questions, just let us know.
