Using different GENI Reservation Tools

Slice/Sliver Expiration Times

Different resources in GENI have different expiration times. Frequently, this trips up students and their reservations unexpectedly expire.

Let's try that:

  1. Login to the portal
  2. Create a slice
  3. When the new slice loads click the add resources button
  4. Choose the "One Virtual machine rspec" and the Utah Instageni Aggregate

  5. Once the reservation goes through, navigate back to your slice
  6. Repeat setps 3-5 but this time reserve one VM at Clemson Instageni
  7. From the slice page:
    1. Note the slice expiration time
    2. Scroll down and get the status for the Clemson Instageni AM, what is the expiration time?
    3. What is the expiration time at Utah Instageni?

Action: Send an email to the three discovered expiration times

Access Information with other tools

All the reservation information is stored at the various Authorities and Managers, so you can access your information with any tool. You will find that different tools are better for different things.

Let's try that:

  1. In the slice you created in the above exercise Launch Flack and wait until your slice is loaded. Is your slice ready?
  2. (optional) If you have omni installed run readyToLogin script to get your login information <slicename> -a clemson-ig -a utah-ig
  3. If you have omni installed renew your slivers to expire on Monday renewsliver <slicename> 20140127 -a clemson-ig -a utah-ig
    Tip If you don't have Omni, go back to the portal and renew your resources from there, you might need to only renew the Utah resources.
