    3131=== What are the limitations of GENI-in-a-Box? ===
    3232Because all of GENI-in-a-Box exists within one !VirtualBox VM it is subject to limitations such as:
    33   * Limited performance isolation.  The experimenter virtual machines compete with one another and with other processes running on your laptop for CPU and network resources.  Software execution times may therefore not be repeatable.
     33  * Limited performance isolation.  The experimenter virtual machines compete with one another and with other processes running on your computer for CPU, network and other resources.  Software execution times may therefore not be repeatable.
    3434  * Lack of control over link bandwidth.  Some GENI aggregates such as ProtoGENI allow experimenters to specify the bandwidth of the links used in the experiment.  GENI-in-a-Box ignores any bandwidth specifications in the request rspec.  Additionally, all links in GENI-in-a-Box are bi-directional.
    3535  * Relatively small numbers of resources available for experimentation.  Experiments on GENI-in-a-Box are limited to a relatively small number of nodes (currently six).
