Measurement System Evaluation

The Measurement System project, also known as Geni Instrument and Measurement Systems (GIMS), has one Spiral 3 milestone s3.f which defines the following to be delivered: Software with documentation, Installation guides, and Experimenter guides.

The GIMS system includes the following major components:

  • GIMS Web Components - which includes a Control GUI, an Admin GUI, a Results Page and a Log Viewer
  • GIMS Backend tha coordinates communication between all components.
  • GIMS Database that stores experiments, devices, device configurations, experiment stats and device statistics.
  • GIMS Capture Device to captured data.
  • GIMS Status Daemon to monitor and store experiments results.
  • ProtoGENI Test Scripts to control experiments.
  • GIMS Component Manager (CM) to translate ProtoGENI control instructions to GIMS control instructions.

The GIR evaluation covers the tools at GIMS web site which include:

Evaluation Time Frame: November 3, 2011.

Measurement System Findings

Measurement System How-to

Created a slice that includes GIMS slice resources based on the following v2.0 rspec:

  </node>
</rspec>

Using the GIMS Administration tool defined the devices in the slice. First defined gims-sensor-01:

and added device detail:

The creation of the device reported the following:

User authentication not obtained.

Device update successful!

Location: msn
Device Name: gims-sensor-01
Type: PKT_CAP
Hostname: geni1
Port: 8001
Descr: ln device

Repeated the device definition for gims-sensor-02.

Tried to use control tool to define an experiment, but was not successful, need help to determine what happens next.
