Measurement System How-to

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

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<rspec type="request" xmlns="" xmlns:emulab="
xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation=" http://www.p
  <node virtual_id="geni1"
    <config_name value="GENIWithSSH"> </config_name>
    <location_name value="msn"> </location_name>
    <device_name value="gims-sensor-01"> </device_name>
  <node virtual_id="geni2"
    <config_name value="GENIWithSSH"> </config_name>
    <location_name value="msn"> </location_name>
    <device_name value="gims-sensor-02"> </device_name>

Using the GIMS Administration tool defined the devices in the slice:
