    8 The experiment uses [http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/GeniClearinghouse GENI Clearinghouse] credentials with the new Omni tool named ''stitcher.py''.  GENI network stitching does not require any special configuration. If you haven't already configured Omni, please follow [http://trac.gpolab.bbn.com/gcf/wiki/OmniConfigure/Automatic these configuration instructions]. For a list of other GENI sites that support stitching see the [http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/GeniNetworkStitchingSites GENI Network Stitching Sites] page.

    6262 - The default bandwidth allocation is 100 MB, but for the example we set the link to 20 MB, which is sufficient to show the experiment working.

    72 We now use ''stitcher.py'' to set up a stitched topology between the two nodes.
    73  - ''Stitcher.py'' simplifies experiment set-up because it creates slivers at all aggregates, including the network stitching path.
    74  - ''Stitcher.py'' determines all your experiment compute resource aggregates from your RSpec. (You no longer need to enter “-a aggregateName”.)
    75  - ''Stitcher.py'' uses the MAX Stitching Computation Service (SCS) to determine VLAN paths needed for your experiment.
    76  - VLANs are a scarce commodity, and failures can happen. ''Stitcher.py'' will retry if it fails to create a sliver at an aggregate.

    7878We first create a slice for this experiment:

    90 }}}
    91 
    92 Next, we create all necessary slivers using ''stitcher.py''. (Remember there is no need to specify the ''-a'' aggregate option.)  The ''stitcher.py'' tool records the aggregates associated with the slice in a file that it creates in the directory where you run the tool.  We type this command:

     96}}}
     97
     98Next, we create all necessary slivers using ''stitcher'' which will use the RSpec to determine which aggregates are used, so there is no need to specify the ''-a'' aggregate option. Also the ''stitcher'' records the aggregates associated with the slice in a file in the ''~/.gcf'' directory, for later operations with the slice.  To create slivers at all aggregates, we type this command:

    439 Stitcher.py uses the files '' ch\.geni\.net.ln-prj.gpo2utah-amlist.txt'' which has the AM list associated with the slice. Note, that is this file does not exist in the current working directory, stitcher.py will try to delete the sliver at all know aggregates, but you will still have to delete the sliver manually at the Internet2/ION aggregate (http://geni-am.net.internet2.edu:12346).   Now the sliver has been deleted and compute and network resources are released at all aggregates.
