     5== '''Overview''' ==
     7The GEMINI instrumentation and measurement services enables users to quickly
     8add software to their slice that will automatically measure and monitor
     9network traffic and other information about the slice.  GEMINI utilizes
     10the GENI Desktop to view and access the measurement information produced by
     11GEMINI.  The GENI Desktop is also integrated with FLACK which can be used to
     12create and modify slices.
     14This tutorial will begin with a presentation and demonstration of the GENI
     15Desktop and its features and capabilities, along with a demonstration of the
     16measurement information available from the GEMINI measurement services.
     18Following the presentation and overview, attendees will be given a
     19set of exercises that they will work through individually at their own pace to gain experience
     20using the GENI Desktop and GEMINI.  Each exercise is designed to illustrate a
     21different feature, or set of features, of the GENI Desktop and GEMINI.
     22Attendees can work on tasks in any order after the slice has been created, initialized, and instrumentized (!Exercise/Task 1).
     24== '''Introductory Slides''' ==
     26The introductory slides presented at the beginning of the tutorial are available for download as [attachment:GeniDesktop.pdf GeniDesktop.pdf]
     27and [attachment:GEMINI_active_measurements.pdf GEMINI_active_measurements.pdf]
     29== '''Prerequisites''' ==
     31The tutorial assumes that attendees already have a GENI Portal account and
     32know how to login and create slices via the GENI Portal or Flack.
     33It also assumes that users have the latest version of Firefox browser or the Google Chrome browser installed on their machine.
     35NOTE: SAFARI on MAC is not supported.Some Java related features may or may not work due to recent browser issues on Google Chrome.
     37Alternatively you can obtain a copy of the user workspace from which
     38you can run Firefox and perform other omni operations if needed.
     39Attendees should use Firefox or Google Chrome when interacting with the GENI Desktop.
     40For the purposes of this tutorial we will be using the following
     41[wiki:GEMINI/Tutorial/GEC20/GENI_Desktop_and_GEMINI_Example_Topology example topology].
     42Attendees can  create a slice with this topology prior to the start
     43of the tutorial.  Note, that when the slice is created, it must be created with the GEMINI extensions enabled.
     45 NOTE: If you plan to do any of the pre-requisites like creating a slice and slivers at the !GeniDesktop, here are the instructions to [wiki:GEMINI/Tutorial/GEC20/GENI_Desktop_login login to the GeniDesktop].
     47 1. Obtain a copy of the User Workspace if needed
     48 2. Create a Slice . You can use the [ Geni Portal] or the [ GeniDesktop] to do this.
     49 2. Setup the [wiki:GEMINI/Tutorial/GEC20/GENI_Desktop_and_GEMINI_Example_Topology example topology] using any one of the below mentioned ways.
     51NOTE: For this tutorial we will be using method (a) to create slice and slivers.
