Title of the Experiment


The objective of this tutorial is to introduce the GIMI tool set to experimenters who are interested in performing experiments on ExoGENI slices. We will introduce an experiment workflow which experimenters will most likely apply to perform measurements.

After the tutorial, experimenters should be able to:

  • Create a slice on ExoGENI and run an experiment on top of this slice.
  • Orchestrate experiments with OMF:
    • Set up routing on top of topology
    • Verify that topology has been set up correctly
    • Execute an experiment that measures the impact of packet size on throughput by comparing udp output at the sender and udp input at the receiver.
  • Store and retrieve data to/from iRODS
  • Analyze/visualize measurement data with various tools

  • What equipment/software is the experimenter expected to bring to this tutorial?
    • Include links to instruction on how to access, install, and configure the software
  • What knowledge is the experimenter expected to have/obtain before starting this tutorial?
    • Include links to any previous tutorials or pre-work that should be completed before starting this tutorial.
    • Include non-GENI prerequisites such as familiarity with SSH, unix command line, python, etc.
  • What credentials are the experimenter expected to have to do this tutorial?
    • Include links to instructions on obtaining those credentials


  • What tools is the experimenter going to be using?
  • References to guides for installing and using the tools
  • Give them a place where they can get some clarification if they don't know what the tool is or what it is doing
