Basic Tutorial/Experiment with GIMI v1.1 I&M Tools: Instructions

Tutorial Overview

  • This tutorial will show how to reserve resources with Flukes tool, implement experiments on ExoGENI testbed via OML/OMF, analyze measurement results, and store and retrieve data to/fromm iRODS.
  • In this tutorial, Users are expected to get familiar with GIMI tools and command line based OML/OMF, in order to submit experiment scripts, run experiments, and get visualized results.
  • As GIMI I&M service example, users will get hands on experience on setting up a specific topology, add routing on top of that topology and measure the network performance based on UDP packet size.
