    4343  * ''The desired control over network flows.''  If you need to manage network traffic to/from an aggregate you might want to use aggregates that connect to a GENI backbone using OpenFlow switches or set up vlans to these aggregates through the ProtoGENI Backbone Nodes or the SPP Nodes.
    4444  * ''The number of resources you need from an aggregate.''  Aggregates vary from small installations such as the GPO Lab ProtoGENI aggregate that consists of eleven nodes to the PlanetLab and ProtoGENI aggregates that consist of hundreds of nodes.
    45   * ''If the aggregate accepts GENI credentials''.   You will likely be able to use resources from these aggregates with a credential issued by a GENI clearinghouse; you do not have to contact the aggregate owner to get an account for the aggregate.  Additionally, aggregates that accept GENI credentials typically implement the GENI Aggregate Manager API.  A growing number of GENI experiment control tools support this API i.e. these tools can be used to create slices, add resources from aggregates that support the GENI API, etc.  Examples of such tools include the [http://www.protogeni.net/trac/protogeni/wiki/MapInterface ProtoGENI Tools], [http://trac.gpolab.bbn.com/gcf/wiki/Omni  Omni] and [http://gush.cs.williams.edu/trac/gush Gush].

    5353=== 5.1 Experiment Control Tools ===
    54 GENI experiment control tools are used to create slices, add or remove resources to slices, and delete slices.  Some tools may also help with the installation of experimenter specified software into resources in slices; starting, pausing, resuming and stopping the execution of an experiment; and monitoring of the resources in slices for failures.  Examples of GENI experiment control tools include [http://gush.cs.williams.edu/trac/gush Gush], [http://trac.gpolab.bbn.com/gcf/wiki/Omni  Omni],  [http://www.cs.princeton.edu/~jrex/gew/gew-sfi.ppt PlanetLab SFI] and [http://www.protogeni.net/trac/protogeni/wiki/MapInterface ProtoGENI Tools].

    5656In addition to these experiment control tools, individual aggregates provide experimenters with additional tools to install and manage software on their resources.  For example, the Million Node GENI aggregate  provides a set of tools to manage the virtual machines it proves as computing resources.
