  • Marshall Brinn, GENI Project Office
  • Tom Mitchell, GENI Project Office
  • Rob Ricci, University of Utah

Agenda / Details

This software development session provides an opportunity for GENI developers to collaborate informally.

Topics may include:

  • GENI Developer collaboration
  • geni-lib development
    • An opportunity for those using or developing geni-lib to coordinate
  • Extensions to APIs
    • The ProtoGENI/CloudLab folks have added a number of ‘private’ extensions to the GENI APIs including the ability to dynamically resize slices. This is an opportunity for both users and developers to learn more about these extensions
  • Experiment management
    • The ProtoGENI/CloudLab folks have a Chef-based system for automating experiments in GENI-like environments. This is an opportunity for both users and developers to learn more and to discuss other experiment management solutions.
    • ProtoGENI/CloudLab has also added features to get shared secrets onto nodes for better passwords (where they are necessary) and to set up passwordless ssh between nodes in a slice. They are interested in getting feedback and seeing who else might be interested in using them
    • The issue of getting some kind of keys onto nodes in a slice so that they can call GENI API calls (eg. to expand the slice) has come up many times over the years, and the ProtoGENI/CloudLab folks would like to revisit this discussion
  • Other ’third party’ services
    • The ProtoGENI/CloudLab folks are running a service to track disk images and want feedback on whether other developers would want to use it.
  • Extending Jacks
    • How can Jacks be extended to handle new types of resources?
  • OpenFlow support
    • Discussions related to feedback received from the "OpenFlow Support for Experimenters in GENI" session on Tuesday
