Description

Summary

Agenda

1) GEMINI Goals

9:00am

Spiral 5:

Introduce and deploy new architecture;
maintain legacy architectures until transition to new architecture is complete;
provide useful tools at each GEC

v1.1/GEC15:

*Introduce new architecture with passive measurements;
follow basic test/tutorial/experiment workflow;
who is responsible on GEMINI team for flow of tutorial?

v2beta/GEC16:

*Extend new architecture to include (at least) basic active network measurements;
extend analysis, presentation, storage and archiving of all measurements

v2.0/GEC17:

*Add full set of active network measurements;
follow infrastructure measurement workflow, including sharing data with others;
include ability to retrieve data from storage for further analysis and presentation

Spiral 6:

Add functions, features and refinements, based on user feedback;
integrate with other GENI tools (e.g., GENI CH Portal)

Discuss and agree

2) Basic Test/Tutorial/Experiment Workflow

9:15am

See workflow
Sets requirements for use of tools by experimenter to instrument and measure their slice
Should be used as basis for GEC15 tutorial.

Discuss and agree

3) GEMINI Definition for v1.1/GEC15

9:30am

See definition

Discuss and agree

4) Target Aggregates for v1.1/GEC15 and Spiral 5

10:00am

v1.1/GEC15:

Target ProtoGENI clusters, also InstaGENI racks
However, since InstaGENI racks are still unstable, GEC15 tutorial will target only ProtoGENI clusters, preferably Univ Kentucky.

v2beta/GEC16:

Target ProtoGENI clusters, also InstaGENI racks
GEC16 tutorial should target InstaGENI racks, preferably slices spanning multiple racks

v2.0/GEC17:

*Add target of ExoGENI racks, for slices spanning multiple racks
However, a slice does NOT need to span both types of racks

Discuss and agree

5) Reference Experiments for v1.1/GEC15 and Spiral 5

10:15am

v1.1/GEC15:

Phoebus/XSP? See link (Ezra)
Alternate? (Jim)

How to orchestrate reference experiment? consider OMF?

v2beta/GEC16:

Extended active network measurements? include OF/L2?

v2.0/GEC17:

Active network measurements, with data sharing?
Consider: CCNIE award to IU (starting Jan, 2013), focus on distributed storage on infrastructure; includes Phoebus, OF; concern: does GENI have enough storage? (Note: ExoGENI includes storage resources) (Martin)

Discuss and agree

6) Introducing New GEMINI Architecture for v1.1/GEC15

10:45am

*See BLiPP, MS, NewUNIS, for Type-2 passive host measurements; see config (Ezra, Ahmed)

Introduce flexible AA between new modules and NewUNIS; see config or postpone? (Ezra, Ahmed)

Discuss and agree

7) GEMINI Portal for v1.1/GEC15

11:15am

Use to find all GUIs; integrate with NewUNIS (Jim, Charles)

Discuss and agree

8) GEMINI Integration Plan for v1.1/GEC15

11:30am

Arrangements for source control? (IU/UK/Jeanne)

Who produces what modules?

Who integrates modules?

Acceptance testing (Jeanne)

MUST make a plan, and a schedule!

Lunch

12noon

9) Extending New GEMINI Architecture for Spiral 5

1:00pm

*New MPs, for active network measurements; extend to OF/L2?

*Extended MSs, and data flows between MPs, MSs, and MAPs

*How to configure and orchestrate?

*Local NewUNIS and global NewUNIS; use by GENI stitching?

*Data flow between slices, with authentication and authorization, for sharing measurements

Discuss and agree; when?

10) Extending GEMINI Measurement Analysis, Presentation, Storage and Archive Functions in Spiral 5

1:30pm

*Flexible analysis and presentation of measurements.

*Push/pull to/from storage service, based on iRODS

*Include descriptors, following GENI schema

*Retrieve measurements from storage service, for further analysis and presentation

*Define object, and move to archive service; share with others per attached policy

Discuss and agree; when?

11) Extending GEMINI Portal Service in Spiral 5

2:00pm

Basic: find all GUIs

*Extended functions?

*Access from GENI CH Portal? or merge with GENI CH Portal?

Discuss and agree; when?

12) Review of GEMINI Plans and Open Issues for Spiral 5

2:30pm

Adjourn

3:30pm
