The purpose of this tutorial is to perform more advanced networking experiments in GENI, and to also get you acquainted with Omni that is a command line tool for resource management in GENI.

The tutorial will have two parts:

  • Part 1: Introduction to Omni and a simple hands-on exercise. Also introduction to more complicated GENI topologies and to TiMIX a traffic generator that you can use in GENI.
  • Part 2: For this part we are going to split up in two groups:
