Brief demo description

Demo Participants: Andy Bavier, Princeton University

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).

Features of MySlice:

  • MySlice uses SFA’s delegation capabilities to permit an SFA client to run on a remote webserver.
  • Resources can be selected using measurement data gathered from a number of independent measurement and monitoring projects, including TopHat, CoMon, and SWORD

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. It was funded in part by 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.
