GENI Desktop and GEMINI Tutorial

Tutorial Overview

This tutorial will introduce you to the GENI Desktop web service for viewing and working with your slices/experiments. It will also introduce you to the instrumentation and measurement services provided by GEMINI which can be accessed via the GENI Desktop.

The tutorial will begin with a presentation and demonstration of the GENI Desktop and its features and capabilities, along with a demonstration of the measurement information available from the GEMINI measurement services.

Following the intial presentation and overview, attendees will be assigned a set of exercises that they will work through individually to gain experience using the GENI Desktop and GEMINI. Each exercise is designed to illustrate a different feature, or set of features, of the GENI Desktop and GEMINI.


The tutorial assumes that attendees already have a GENI Portal account and now how to login and create slices via the GENI Portal or Flack. For the purposes of this tutorial we will be using the following GENIExperimenter/Tutorials/GENI_Desktop_and_GEMINI_Example_Topology. Attendees should have created a slice with this topology prior to the start of the tutorial, or should do it as soon as the tutorial starts. Note, that when the slice is created, it must be created with the GEMINI extensions enabled.
