InstaGENI/GEMINI Tutorial


Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

1:00pm - 2:30pm
3:00pm - 5:00pm

Session Leaders

Hussam Nasir (Univ of Kentucky) and Ezra Kissel (Indiana Univ)


The GEMINI project is developing an instrumentation and measurement framework, capable of supporting the needs of both GENI experimenters and GENI infrastructure operators. Currently, it includes functionality from two recent GENI projects: INSTOOLS and LAMP. (LAMP is based on the perfSONAR system, modified for use in the GENI environment.) GEMINI will collect and manage both substrate metrics and active network measurements.

This session will introduce the GEMINI instrumentation and measurement (I&M) tools and show how to instrument an experiment that is executed on an InstaGENI/ProtoGENI slice.

After successfully finishing the tutorial, attendees should be able to instrument their own InstaGENI/ProtoGENI-based experiments.


This tutorial assumes that attendees have a basic knowledge of ProtoGENI/InstaGENI, and we recommend that interested participants also consider attending the InstaGENI tutorial offered at GEC 15.

Active participants will need a laptop equipped with a recent version of Virtual Box. If you are unable to bring one, you may partner with someone else.
