Abstract

The GEMINI project is developing an instrumentation and measurement framework, capable of supporting the needs of both GENI experimenters and GENI infrastructure operators.

GEMINI will collect and manage both substrate metrics and active network measurements.

Version 1.0 of the GEMINI tools included functionality from two recent GENI projects: INSTOOLS and LAMP. (LAMP is based on the perfSONAR system, modified for use in the GENI environment.) A tutorial using GEMINI v1.0 was presented at GEC14.

A new GEMINI "target architecture" has now been defined, which will unify gathering substrate metrics and active network measurements, and present them using a more-capable portal.

GEMINI version 1.1 takes the first step towards a GEMINI "target architecture", by using it to gather substrate metrics, which are then presented via an the GEMINI portal. This session will use the GEMINI v1.1 I&M tools, and show how to instrument a basic 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 using the GEMINI v1.1 tools.

Preparation

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.
