new GPO SE; added Spiral 2 plans

GENI Control Framework Working Group (control-wg)

Charter

Working Group Scope

What is universal across GENI components? How will evolution be accommodated with or without a full transition of all GENI nodes at once?

Topics in-scope include:

  • component control (obtaining and managing resources)
  • slice control (interfaces and mechanisms for establishing and controlling slices)
  • access control within GENI (usage policy representation and administration mechanisms)
  • interactions external to GENI (federation)
  • key enablers (identity, authentication)

Spiral 2 Working Group Plans

  • Major goal: Define a GENI Aggregate API
    • Requirements to function calls to resource representation
  • Parallel approaches:
    • Converge APIs of two control frameworks: PlanetLab and ProtoGENI both started with "SFA". Will reconcile naming, credentials, host & network RSpecs to produce an API with matching implementations.
    • Define missing elements needd for more general API: Develop a framework then an API for policies, scheduling, more general resource representation.

Chairs: Rob Ricci, Jeff Chase

Work-in-Progress


DRAFT Control Framework Documents

The following control framework documents have been drafted by the GPO to expand upon (and replace) the GENI Control Framework Architecture (CFA) document that was introduced at GEC3. PLEASE NOTE: All documents are still in DRAFT form. The overview documents are currently being reviewed by their respective teams, but their initial reviews have not been completed.

The community is invited to review these drafts and provide comments, additions or changes to the WG SE, Harry Mussman, at hmussman@bbn.com .

We would also like to do interactive reviews, perhaps one or more 1-hour conference calls. Would you be interested in participating is such a call? If so, please contact the WG SE, Harry Mussman, at hmussman@bbn.com

GENI Control Framework Requirements

GENI-SE-CF-RQ-01.3
This document defines the GENI control framework subsystem, and then specifies its requirements. It is a DRAFT, to be used for discussion in the GENI Control Framework working group. Once approved, it can be used as a guide to judge the completeness of prototype control framework designs, and as a guide to their continued evolution.

PlanetLab GENI Control Framework Overview

GENI-SE-CF-PLGO-01.2
This document provides an overview of the PlanetLab GENI control framework being implemented for Spiral 1, for use in Cluster B. It is a DRAFT, to be used for discussion in the GENI Control Framework working group. (Note: A review of this document by the PlanetLab team is underway, but has not yet been completed.) It provides a description of the PlanetLab GENI control framework structure, a summary of how it meets the requirements as presented in the “GENI Control Framework Requirements”, and a view of its implementation at the start and the finish of Spiral 1.

ProtoGENI Control Framework Overview

GENI-SE-CF-PRGO-01.4
This document provides an overview of the ProtoGENI control framework being implemented for Spiral 1, for use in Cluster C. It is a DRAFT, to be used for discussion in the GENI Control Framework working group. (Note: A review of this document by the ProtoGENI team is underway, but has not yet been completed.) It provides a description of the ProtoGENI control framework structure, a summary of how it meets the requirements as presented in the “GENI Control Framework Requirements”, and a view of its implementation at the start and the finish of Spiral 1.

ORCA GENI Control Framework Overviews

GENI-SE-CF-ORGO-01.2
This document provides an overview of the ORCA GENI control framework being implemented for Spiral 1, for use in Cluster D. It is a DRAFT, to be used for discussion in the GENI Control Framework working group. (Note: A review of this document by the ORCA team is underway, but has not yet been completed.) It provides a description of the ORCA GENI control framework structure, a summary of how it meets the requirements as presented in the “GENI Control Framework Requirements”, and a view of its implementation at the start and the finish of Spiral 1.
