Tutorial: OnTimeMeasure Capabilities for GENI Experimenters


Prasad Calyam, Ohio Supercomputer Center
Rohit Patali, OARnet


Tues 4:00 - 5:00 pm


The purpose of the tutorial is to inform GENI experimenters and provide hands-on experience about how to use the OnTimeMeasure measurement service to monitor their experiment environment, as well as collect and analyze on-going and on-demand measurements of network and system performance with their experiment slices.

A list of topics that will be covered in the tutorial are:

  • Use cases of experimenters that motivate the existing OnTimeMeasure capabilities in GENI
  • Terminology and functions of software bundles: Node Beacon, Root Beacon, OnTime Beacon, OnTime Control
  • Taking advantage of integration with GENI projects: OnTimeMeasure-ProtoGENI, OnTimeMeasure-PlanetLab, OnTimeMeasure-CRON, OnTimeMeasure-InsTools, OnTimeMeasure-GUSH
  • Attendees can practice installation and configuration in ProtoGENI and/or PlanetLab; if attendee already has an existing ProtoGENI/PlanetLab slice with atleast 2 nodes, a working version of OnTimeMeasure can be setup by the end of the tutorial
  • Example Experiment Demo: Demonstration of a GENI experiment requesting/managing/querying measurements through OnTimeMeasure to address a network science and engineering research issue (e.g., resource allocation in a virtual desktop cloud)
