Deploying Network-aware Applications in GENI

Webinar Details

  • Presented by: Prasad Calyam from the University of Missouri
  • Date: Friday September 30th
  • Time: 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. ET


We will discuss the requirements and design of a “Future Internet Performance Architecture” (FIPA), and present a hands-on demo that shows how to use a reference implementation of FIPA that we developed called ‘OnTimeMeasure’. OnTimeMeasure is comprised of several measurement related services that can interact with each other to enable performance intelligence within applications. We will show how OnTimeMeasure can be deployed in the Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI) infrastructure, and integrated within an application-adaptation scenario. Also we will present a case study in GENI that uses OnTimeMeasure-enabled performance intelligence in the context of dynamic resource allocation within thin-client based virtual desktop clouds. Lastly, we will show how a virtual desktop cloud provider can use the performance intelligence within a GENI slice to increase cloud scalability, while simultaneously delivering satisfactory user quality-of-experience.

If you wish to run the hands-on demo yourself, please complete the following pre-work:

  1. Ensure you can login to (instructions, step 1 here)
  2. Join a project. Use the project named OnTimeMeasure-GENI-Webinar unless you have access to another project which you prefer to use.
  3. Ensure you have generated and can use a key pair. You must:
    • have your private key on your machine
    • know your passphrase
    • if using Windows, have an SSH client installed and tested.
  4. Become familiar with GENI Portal.
  5. Register and create an account on the OnTimeMeasure portal at:
