This page will guide you through Running a Complete Experiment in GENI as seen in the plenary demo!

For this experiment you will need :

  1. A GENI Account. If you don't have one sign up. If you are at the GEC, get a temporary account.
  2. An Irods Account
  3. The tutorial VM. If you do not have it please find us and we will give you a copy.

That's, you are ready to run this experiment!

1. Login to Flack

We are going to use Flack a web-based graphical tool for reserving GENI resources. Your first step is to log in to Flack. This video will guide you through the steps of logging in.

Login to Flack Video
  1. Go to http://www.protogeni.net/flack and press the Log in button
  2. From the select authority drop down menu, select the site authority for your GENI account, most probably pgeni.gpolab.bbn.com and press the Download button
  3. Answer yes in the pop-up window
  4. Login to the new window using your GENI account
  5. Reload the Flack tab and repeat steps 1 and 2
  6. After your private key and certificate are loaded, type your GENI passphrase in the box
  7. Select the sites you want. For this tutorial we only need the utaemulab.cm site.

2. Launch your experiment

Now that you are logged in to Flack, we are ready to design our experiment. This video will guide you through the process of setting up the resources for the Hello GENI experiment. To complete the setup you will need to save a copy of this file on your computer. This is a Resource Specification (rspec) file that contains a description of this experiment for Flack.

Launch Experiment Video
  1. After Flack finishes loading all the information, create a new slice by clicking New on the left of the screen, right under your user name. Name your slice something like xxxhello (where xxx are your initials)
  2. When an empty canvas shows up, you are ready to create an experiment. Click at the Import button on the top of the canvas and select Import from file
  3. Find the copy of this rspec file that you downloaded earlier and press ok
  4. A topology will come up, it will look different than the topology on the video. Your topology should look like Login to Flack Video. Press the Submit button and confirm that you want to reserve these resources.
  5. Wait while your resources are being reserved. This will take several minutes so be patient. When your sliver is ready the background will be green.

3. Enable Instrumentation In your Experiment

The next step before we actually start running our experiment, is to start the instrumentation in our slice. For this example we are going to use GEMINI
