GEC12 demo: WAN performance and measurements with XSP and LAMP

Reported by: Owned by: Josh Smift
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: GPO Version: SPIRAL4
Keywords: GEC12 Cc: Mark Berman


  1. Description

Participants: Ezra Kissel (Delaware), Matthew Jaffee (Indiana), Martin Swany (Indiana)

This demonstration will show the eXtensible Session Protocol (XSP) and a networking approach that we call SLaBS, for Session Layer Burst Switching. XSP is a session protocol that can signal the network, utilize network forwarding gateways, and alter the configuration of the network for the duration of the session. In this demo, bulk data transfers will create virtual circuits with Openflow, and will perform optimized transfers between SLaBS gateways. The demo will be monitored using the LAMP I&M system.

  1. AC connections: 2
  2. Wired network connections: 1
  3. Wireless network connections: shared wifi
  4. Static addresses: none
  5. Projectors: 1 if available
  6. Monitors: 1
  7. Posters: 1
  8. Special requests: none

Demo Session Resources

  • ProtoGENI backbone nodes (SALT, WASH, KANS would be ideal and known working)
  • GPO or Meso-scale Openflow with connectivity to protogeni backbone
  • Internet2 ION circuits to protogeni backbone nodes (can be provisioned externally)
  • Edge hosts from either PlanetLab or ProtoGENI. Will probably need 4-5 nodes on each side of the backbone. For example, 4-5 nodes on east coast, 4-5 nodes on west coast, or at Utah Emulab.

Just to clarify, is this request for the plenary session or for the evening demo session? There's a ticket similar to this for the plenary, which we'll replace with yours if this is for the plenary. You are of course welcome to run the same demo for the evening session as for the plenary if this request is for the evening session.

Yes, there is one ticket for each demo. The evening demo session will run the same experiment but we will highlight LAMP instrumentation as well. During the plenary, we should have enough time to only describe the XSP architecture and demonstrate the experiment itself. The resource requirements for both demos should remain the same.

(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.

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.
