Teardown Experiment: Delete Resources

Introduction: Getting Started with GENI and the GENI Portal


7 Cleaning up

As in previous tutorials, it is always good practice to clean up slivers right away so that resources can be released and reused by other experimenters. While other tools (such as Flack and the GENI Portal) can also be used to clean up, no matter which software was used to establish the sliver in the first place, for this example we will demonstrate the clean up procedure using Omni.

The command to use is: -a AM_NICKNAME deletesliver SLICENAME

where once again AM_NICKNAME is the aggregate manager nickname and SLICENAME is the name of your slice (both found on your worksheet).

A minute or so later, Omni should respond with:

INFO:omni: Completed deletesliver:

and some details of exactly what was deleted.

Congratulations! You have completed the tutorial.

(If you have extra time, you might want to go back and bring up a different sliver and explore some more advanced options. You can reuse the same slice name until it expires, so you need only to design a different rspec and submit it. For instance, try choosing a different "Sliver Type" and/or "Disk Image" from the node information screen in Flack -- these are very useful options for advanced GENI users.)
