CMU Lab Quarterly Status Report 2Q 2010

I. Major accomplishments

A. Milestones Achieved

  • The last remaining issues with the event system integration as it is used to automate emulator software were solved. This greatly simplifies running experiments using the emulator and will make it easier for outside collaboration.
  • MetaVPN is complete and a design for integration into the rspec parser so ProtoGENI components will automatically run the software was made, in collaboration with Rob Ricci at Utah.
  • The Cisco-VLAN data plane integration design was redone as initial approaches proved not feasable. The new design was done in collaboration with Rob Ricci and Keith Sklower and initial work towards integration began
  • Our wireless testbed was expanded with an additional 8 nodes, which are currently private. Work is ongoing for additional independent wireless testbeds, which will take additional emucontrollers and possible reworking of some of the emulab integration.

B. Deliverables made

Scripts needed to launch the emulatorDaemon component properly and automatically through Emulab are completed and in-use in our local testbed. Our Emulator documentation was updated accordingly. We anticipate sharing these scripts with the upcoming usage of our wireless emulation system at other sites.

Design documents for the rspec parser integration-to-MetaVPN are complete.
Design documents for the cisco-vlan data plane integration are complete.
Work to handle multiple emucontrol nodes in one testbed is ongoing.

II. Description of work performed during the last quarter

A. Activities and findings

C. Publications (individual and organizational)

"The Testbed Mapping Problem" (McGeer, Andersen, Schwab) published, presented at TridentCom (paper detailed in previous QSR).

D. Outreach activities

E. Collaborations

As documented in the Utah quarterly report, we have been participating in weekly/biweekly conference calls with other members of our cluster. Our lead staff developer, Pat Gunn, has had other communications with smaller parts of the Emulab team as part of code design and development.
