    8686''[http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/Embedded%20Real-Time%20Measurements/GENI_MS1_ERM_March09_v1-1.pdf Technical Note MS1]''  The capabilities of GENI's (future) infrastructure with respect to real-time measurements are evaluated and we assess the GENI requirements for real-time user access to measurement data across a diverse set of technologies.[[BR]]

    88 ''[http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/Embedded%20Real-Time%20Measurements/GENI_MS2_ERM_March09_v1-0.pdf Technical Note MS2]''  A set of specifications for enabling real-time measurements within the substrate and specifications for networking protocols based on the GENI requirements for real-time user-accessed cross-layer measurements is developed. We identify a set of specifications for the implementation of a unified, integrated measurement framework with the ultimate purpose of limiting the hardware and software overhead and complexity associated with accessing measurement data.

    94 To enable and perform discrete-event network simulations and quantitatively evaluate performance impact under several scenarios of cross-layer information exchange based on real-time measurements we developed new simulation modules for the ns-2 open source network modeling environment and make them available to the GENI community:

    101 === Milestone 4 ===
    102 
    103 This milestone deals with the development of a measurement framework based on GENI real-time measurement requirements and other developments/resources within the GENI prototyping activities. Interacting with other prototype efforts, we identify and leverage relevant activities, software architectures, protocols, and products. This work deals with a number of software architectures dedicated to network measurements which could serve as an interface between a unified measurement framework (UMF), the control framework, and the GENI experimenter. We assess several network management protocols and data exchange formats with respect to their ability of exchanging measurement and control information between the substrate's performance monitors and the UMF, as well as between the UMF and the GENI control frameworks.
