Service Developers Roundtable

Tuesday, March 19, 8:30am - 10am
Room:
Session leader: Harry Mussman (GENI Project Office, Raytheon BBN Technologies)

Description

This I&M session will focus on the key issues of interest to both the GIMI and GEMINI projects, as they continue to work towards a comprehensive set of I&M tools for GENI experimenters and for infrastructure measurement. In particular, we will consider the services and functions that can be used by both the GIMI and GEMINI projects.

We will form teams that can resolve these issues.

Finally, we will discuss the I&M goals for the next 4 months, particularly how to best support experimenters and those doing infrastructure measurement.

Pre-Requisites

None

Agenda

This is a tentative agenda, which may change.

1) Introductions

8:30am

2) Meeting Introduction

8:35am
Harry Mussman (GENI Project Office)

Goals and Approach

  • Work towards a "unified experiment environment".
  • Help groups prepare responses to Sol 4

Current overall experiment configuration

Summary of current experiment steps

Possible next steps towards a “unified experiment environment”.

Today’s discussion topics:

  • Common graphical resource assignment tool
  • Rationalization of all graphical portals, and all graphical tools
  • Introduction of OMF to configure/orchestrate I&M and ExpApp services

3) Common graphical resource assignment tool

8:45am

Overview

Harry Mussman
2min

Step 3: Obtain slice, install software

  • Now: GIMI using ExoGENI, Flukes; loads images/pkgs
  • Now: GEMINI using InstaGENI, FLACK; loads images/pkgs
  • Next: move towards common graphical resource assignment tool for both ExoGENI and InstaGENI racks

Current FLACK tool

(Rob Ricci)
2min

2 slides: current config; current capabilities and issues

Current GENI CH Portal

Tom Mitchell
2min

2 slides: current config; current capabilities and issues

Current Flukes tool

(Ilia Baldine)
2min

2 slides: current config; current capabilities and issues

Strawman combined tool

Roundtable discussion

15min
(Ilia Baldine); (Rob Ricci); Tom Mitchell; Marshall Brinn; Niky Riga

Discuss common graphical resource assignment tool, and relationship to portals

[Any additional topics, suggestions and issues suggested AHEAD OF TIME by members of roundtable?]

At the end: any conclusions, list of issues, team to continue discussion

4) Rationalization of all graphical portals, and all graphical tools

9:10am

Overview

Harry Mussman
5min

Step 2: Establish exper mgmt environment

  • Next: GENI CH Portal, to establish credentials, and enter GENI

Step 3: Obtain slice, install software

  • Now: GIMI using ExoGENI, Flukes; loads images/pkgs
  • Now: GEMINI using InstaGENI, FLACK; loads images/pkgs
  • Next: move towards common graphical resource assignment tool for both ExoGENI and InstaGENI racks

Step 5: Run/orchestrate I&M and exp app

  • Now: GEMINI uses portal to GUI, to config/orchestrate
  • Now: GEMINI uses portal to GUI, to configure and present graphs
  • Now: GIMI uses portal incl GUI, to configure and present graphs

Step 6: Analyze

  • Now: Both use portal on GENI Storage Service (iRODS) to curate files (objects)

Next: Need to rationalize all graphical portals, and all graphical tools, to better unify experiment environment

Current GENI CH Portal

(Tom Mitchell or Aaron Helsinger)
2min

2 slides: current config; current capabilities and issues

Current GEMINI Portal (GENI Desktop)

(Charles Carpenter or Jim Griffioen)
2min

2 slides: current config; current capabilities and issues

Current GIMI Portal/GUI

(Max Ott)
2min

2 slides: current config; current capabilities and issues

Strawman linked portals

(Jeanne Ohren)
2min

Suggest:

  • Consider single sign-on at GENI CH portal,
  • then link to GEMINI Portal (GENI Desktop) for entry into I&M tools,
  • then link to I&M GUIs (including the GIMI portal/GUI and the iRODS portal/GUI)
  • Roundtable discussion

15min (Tom Mitchell or Aaron Helsinger); (Charles Carpenter or Jim Griffioen); (Max Ott); (Jeanne Ohren); Niky Riga

Discuss linked portals, with single sign-on

[Any additional topics, suggestions and issues suggested AHEAD OF TIME by members of roundtable?]

At the end: any conclusions, list of issues, team to continue discussion

5) Introduction of OMF to config/orchestrate I&M and ExpApp services

  • Overview

Harry Mussman S5: Run/orchestrate I&M and exp app Now: GEMINI uses portal to GUI, to config/orchestrate Now: GIMI uses OMF EC with Ruby script to config/orchestrate Gap: no common way to config/orchestrate exp apps

Next: Need to rationalize orchestration of all services, including GIMI, GEMINI and Exp Apps, to better unify experiment environment Suggest: Introduce OMF for config/orchestration of all I&M tools and Exp Apps; later, add optional graphical interface; discuss at Roundtable

  • Summarize OMF capabilities

Max Ott 5min 3 slides: current config; current capabilities and issues; future possibilities

  • Roundtable discussion

10min Max Ott; Marshall Brinn; Martin Swany; Fraida Fund

[Any topics, suggestions and issues suggested AHEAD OF TIME by members of roundtable]

[At the end: any conclusions, list of issues, team to continue discussion]

4) Adjourn

10:00am
