STEPS FOR SETTING UP

1. Obtain resources

For this experiment we are going to use resources in ExoGENI GPO or ExoGENI RENCI, we will need:

  • 6 VM (KVM): 2 act as regular hosts; 2 as regular switch; 2 as OpenFlow Switch (we will only program one)

If you are attending a Tutorial, the resources might have already been reserved for you, check with your instructor and skip this step.

You can use any reservation tool you want to reserve this topology:

Look at the Prerequisites for Tutorials about reserving resources.

Create an Experimental Topology for LoadBalancing with OpenFlow

  • 2. Follow the instructions on ObtainResources to reserve a topology on GENI Portal
    • Note: choose resource openflow-loadbalancer-kvm as the rspec; GPO ExoGENI or RENCI ExoGENI as the Aggregate
  • 3. Once nodes are reserved and ready, log onto the reserved nodes following instructions here: LoginToNodes

Done.

Next: Run Experiment
