Wednesday 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Agenda Details

Attendees will learn on how to use the LabWiki tool to plan, prepare, and execute experiments in GENI testbeds. Attendees will run a simple automation using LabWiki with resources they setup in the previous session. We will give an overview on the inner workings of LabWiki, OML/OMF, AMQP, and the GENI experiment service.

How to get Help

  • Always ask your tutors (tutorial helper/presenter/TA) first. They are the fastest way to solve the problem.
  • If you are using a specific aggregate or tool, you should consider registering in their mailing list. It is a great way to get connected with other GENI users and it is an excellent source of wisdom.
  • Send mail to the GENI help list:
  • If you want to chat real-time with other GENI users and ask questions, join us in a GENI chatroom.
