Experiment Control Tools

GENI experiment control tools are used to create slices, add or remove resources to slices, and delete slices. Some tools may also help with the installation of experimenter specified software into resources in slices; starting, pausing, resuming and stopping the execution of an experiment; and monitoring of the resources in slices for failures. Examples of GENI experiment control tools include Gush, Omni, PlanetLab SFI and Flack.

In addition to these experiment control tools, individual aggregates provide experimenters with additional tools to install and manage software on their resources. For example, the Million Node GENI aggregate provides a set of tools to manage the virtual machines it proves as computing resources.

Instrumentation and Measurement Tools

GENI instrumentation tools are currently aggregate specific. Examples of such tools include Instrumentation Tools for the Kentucky ProtoGENI aggregate, Owl for the PlanetLab aggregate and OMF/OML for the ORBIT aggregate.

Monitoring Tools

The GENI Meta Operations Center (GMOC) is actively working in deploying a monitoring infrastructure that is going to be available to all experimenters. Stay tuned for more info!

In the meantime, if you want to monitor outages of GENI resources register for the GMOC Google Calendars for scheduled and unscheduled outages.
