This tutorial will take you through the steps of initializing and instrumentizing a GENI slice to enable basic passive measurement gathering. It will also show you how to configure and schedule active measurements in your slice and view your measurements in various ways.

Registration Information

Maximum number of attendees:

Depends on room size. But we should restrict this to the number of hands on since people with account will do the hands on while we have no clue about this until we have problems with resources at the tutorial.

Maximum number of hands-on (individuals or groups):

25 groups

What ExoGENI resources are needed?


What InstaGENI resources are needed?

Portal currently has listed 13 Instageni racks with openvz resources. We plan to use all 13 with atleast 2 slices (4 openvz VMs per slice) on each rack. This also depends on who and how and when the slices will be created.

What WiMAX resources are needed?


When will slices be created and by whom?

TBD Question: Can tutorial sessions (Into to GENI) on Monday get people to create slices with GEMINI Extensions though FLACK. Instructions can be provided. We prefer attendees use their own slices, rather than using tutorial accounts.

Slice name pattern: No restrictions except for short names

When will resources be reserved and by whom?

Hopefull by attendees during the Day 1 of the GEC19 tutorial sessions

When and how will slices be assigned to attendees?



What tools are required for the tutorial?


What tools are recommended for the tutorial?
