    77=== What is the GENIDesktop ? ===

    9 The GENIDesktop is a tool that supports multiple ways to “visualize” a slice, and makes it easy to apply an operation to a subset of resources within a slice. It basically uses a file-browser-like interface that users are familiar with. The analogy is selecting files in a file browser and applying an operation (regardless of the “view” – e.g., list view, icon view, detailed view, etc.). GENIDesktop supports extensible functionality we called '''Modules''' that perform commonly used operations like ssh, file-copy, running a command, rebooting nodes , etc, as can also be used to support custom functionality.   It also provides graphs and table data for various statistics collected from the nodes in a slice. This is done  with the use of the GENIDesktop monitoring tools that interact with the experiment’s resources over the control plane via a [wiki:GENIExperimenter/Tutorials/GENIDesktop/Global_Node Global Node]. The GENIDesktop automatically adds software to a slice that will measure and monitor network traffic and other information about the slice.The GENIDesktop is also integrated with JACKS which can be used to create and modify RSPEC topologies.

GENIDesktop supports extensible functionality we call '''Modules''' that perform commonly used operations like ssh, file-copy, running a command, rebooting nodes and so on.  Modules can also be written to support custom functionality.   GENIDesktop also provides graphs and table data for various statistics collected from the nodes in a slice.
