I&M WG meeting at GEC7

Agenda and Notes

Wednesday, March 17, 2010, 3:30pm - 5:30pm
Room: Presidents 2

3:30pm All
Introductions (5min)

3:35pm Paul Barford (University of Wisconsin)

Major WG issues and goals (15min)

Goals:
+ An infrastructure for gathering, analyzing and archiving measurements in GENI

  • Support for broad range of experiments
  • Tight integration with control framework(s)
  • Efficient, easy to use, broadly deployed, diverse capabilities, secure, privacy-aware, etc.

+ WG facilitates communication and coordination between I & M projects

  • Toward reaching overall goals quickly and effectively
  • Includes architectures, specifications, partnerships

Issues:
+ Architectural (v0.1 on wiki)

  • Use cases
  • Schema
  • Sensors, components and protocols
  • UI and integration
  • Authentication and privacy
  • torage and analysis

+ Practical

  • Test and evaluation
  • Deployment, configuration and support

Each of the following speakers was asked to include in their talk a review of how they address the following GENI I&M architecture priority topics:
+ Common terminology; best granularity of functions
+ Measurement data schema; common after MPs, before and within MCs, MDAs; what is included in meta-data?
+ Measurement plane; options; expect nodes with 3 or 2 NICs

3:50pm Jim Griffioen (University of Kentucky)
Instrumentation Tools Project (1642) (15min)

INSTOOLS: Instrumentation Tools for a ProtoGENI Prototype

Goals:
+ Integrate Univ of Kentucky Emulab into ProtoGENI (completed in year 1)
+ Reimplement Univ of Kentucky Edulab instrumentation and measurement tools to work in the ProtoGENI environment.
+ Support automatic generation of instrumentation and measurement infrastructure on a per-slice basis.

Structure:
+ Measurement Points
+ Measurement Controller

Functional Components

  1. Setup: deploy and initialize topology-specific software and services
  2. Capture: capture measurement data
  3. Collection: move data to processing/storage environments
  4. Storage: store data on a temporary, short term, long term, and archival basis
  5. Processing: filter, convert, aggregate, summarize, etc., data
  6. Presentation: present data to users in meaningful ways
  7. Access Protection: protect resources and data
  8. Measurement Control: Dynamically control the above components

Note: Conventional network management solutions exist for 2. through 8.

Mapping functions to proposed services:

  1. Setup – MO?
  2. Capture - MP
  3. Control – MO?
  4. Collection - MC
  5. Storage - MDA
  6. Processing - MAP
  7. Access Control – MO?
  8. Presentation - MAP

Measurement data schema:
+ Data-specific formats will exist at multiple times and places but should be invisible to the generic measurement infrastructure
+ Should leverage expertise of those with experience in this area (DatCat, PerfSONAR, etc).

Measurement plane:
+ Virtual interfaces abound in GENI.

  • Unknown how virtual interfaces map to physical NICs.

+ Shared paths are OK, but require QoS.

  • Setting up QoS planes is challenging; particularly if planes are per-slice.
