    5353The following is the workflow for a typical GENI experiment.  The objective here is to show how the concepts described above tie together; this is not intended to be a complete description of the GENI experimenter workflow.  In the workflow, the experimenter:
    54   1. Requests an account at the GENI Portal.
    55   2. Joins an existing project on the portal or creates a new project.  Only faculty and senior technical staff can create projects.
    56   3. Creates a slice.
    57   4. Decides what resources she needs and which aggregates they will come from.
    58   5. Crafts a rspec that describes the resources she needs.  She will typically use a GENI experimenter tool to craft this Rspec.
    59   6. Invokes the appropriate GENI AM API calls on the aggregates she wants to use; the request Rspec is sent to the aggregates using these AM API calls.
    60   7. Receives from the aggregates a manifest Rspec that includes information she will need to use the resources allocated to her slice.
     54  1. Requests an account at the [wiki:GENIConcepts#TheGENIPortal GENI Portal].
     55  2. Joins an existing [wiki:GENIConcepts#Project project] on the portal or creates a new project.  Only faculty and senior technical staff can create projects.
     56  3. Creates a [wiki:GENIConcepts#Slice slice].
     57  4. Decides what resources she needs and the [wiki:GENIConcepts#AggregatesandResources aggregates] from which she will get these resources.
     58  5. Crafts a [wiki:GENIConcepts#TheGENIAMAPIandGENIRSpecs Rspec] that describes the resources she needs.  She will typically use a GENI experimenter tool to craft this Rspec.
     59  6. Invokes the appropriate [wiki:GENIConcepts#TheGENIAMAPIandGENIRSpecs GENI AM API] calls on the aggregates she wants to use; the request Rspec is sent to the aggregates using these AM API calls.
     60  7. Receives from the aggregates a [wiki:GENIConcepts#TheGENIAMAPIandGENIRSpecs manifest Rspec] that includes information she will need to use the resources allocated to her slice.
    6161  8. Uses the resources she got to run her experiment.  She may log into the compute resources she got, install software and send traffic on the network links.
    6262  9. Deletes the resources from her slice when her experiment is done.
