GIMI Tutorial at GEC15


Thursday, October 25th
8:30am - 11:30am

Session Leaders

Mike Zink, UMass Amherst


The GIMI project is developing an instrumentation and measurement framework, capable of supporting the needs of both GENI experimenters and GENI infrastructure operators. It uses the ORBIT Measurement Library (OML) and integrated Rule Oriented Data System (iRODS) as its basis and the Internet Remote Emulation Experiment Laboratory (IREEL). It will provide libraries to instrument resources, to filter and process measurement flows, and to consume measurement flows. It will use the iRODS data grid for archiving and further processing.

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

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


  1. To prepare for the tutorial, each participant should install VirtualBox and the GENI User Workspace image on their computer. Instruction for this step can be found here: [TBA]
  1. This tutorial assumes that attendees have a basic knowledge of ORCA/ExoGENI, and it is recommended that you attend the [ExoGENI tutorial] given prior to the GIMI tutorial.
  1. This tutorial also assumes that participants have a basic knowledge OMF/OML.
  1. Besides OMF/OML and ExoGENI, this tutorial will also make use of iRODS and IREEL and the interested participant can find further information at the links given for both tools.
  1. Account information for all tools will be handed out on paper to the participants at the beginning of the tutorial.
