    21 The Starter Racks project is an effort to get [http://www.nsf.gov/cise/usignite/ US Ignite] cities connected to the GENI Network to facilitate experimental network and compute research, and city application development. The Starter racks jump start the delivery of fully integrated network and compute resources to selected sites. At this time, the Starter racks do not deliver GENI software features such as an Aggregate Manager. Starter Racks can be used as Meso-scale !OpenFlow Site, but requires GPO Infrastructure support to implement, if you are interested in running !OpenFlow on a deployed Starter rack contact [mailto:help.geni.net]. If you would like to make your own GENI Starter rack, see the [wiki:GENI-Infrastructure-Portal/GENIRacks#GetYourOwnGENIRack section] below.

    57 Each GENI Starter Rack systems requires a specific setup, which is captured for each of the rack components: Router, !OpenFlow Switch, IPKVM, Eucalyptus Head Host, Eucalyptus Worker Hosts, and Monitor Node. See the '''[http://groups.geni.net/syseng/wiki/GENI-Infrastructure-Portal/GENIRacks/StarterCompSetup Starter Component Setup]''' for details about the required configuration. For specific details about the configuration settings, please contact [mailto:help@geni.net help@geni.net]. Some examples are available to get insight into '''[wiki:GENI-Infrastructure-Portal/GENIRacksAdministration#StarterracksAdmin  Starter Racks Administration]''' tasks.

Monitoring data for the 3 deployed Starter Racks, GPO, Chattanooga and Cleveland is available at the [http://monitor.gpolab.bbn.com/ganglia/ GPOLab Monitor] portal, where the user can select a location and get monitoring detail for ''System load'', ''CPU load'', ''Memory usage'', and ''Network usage''. In addition, ''Services Health'' is monitored on each of the GENI Starter Racks and alert notifications are available upon request, contact [mailto:help.geni.net] to become a notification recipient. To access the ''Service Health'' detail on demand, go to the [http://monitor.gpolab.bbn.com/nagios/cgi-bin/status.cgi Service Status Details] page for all Starter rack sites.
