     4= GENI Experiment Workflows:  Overview =
     5 
     6
     7== 1)  Types of GENI Experiment Workflows ==
     8
     9 a)  From simple to complex
     10
     11 b)  From short-term to long-term
     12
     13 c)  Covers actual experiments, tutorials, and "reference experiments"
     14
     15== 2)  Ranges of GENI Experiments ==
     16
     17 There will be a wide range of GENI experiment workflows, with different characteristics, including these:
     18
     19 a)  Student solves a class problem
     20
     21 b)  Student executes an on-line tutorial, or follows a reference experiment
     22
     23 c)  Researcher evaluates an algorithm or concept
     24
     25 d)  Researcher evaluates the performance of a configuration
     26
     27 e)  Researcher gathers the results of one or more experiments, and writes a paper
     28
     29 f)  Researcher gathers the results of many experiments, and writes a thesis
     30
     31 g)  Experimenter prototypes a service, without opt-in users
     32 
     33 h)  Experimenter prototypes a service, with opt-in users
     34
     35 i)  Experimenter demonstrates a service to selected opt-in users
     36
     37 j)  Experimenter offers a service to many opt-in users for a long period of time
     38
     39 k)  Operator evaluates representative GENI slice performance, such as networking performance, to troubleshoot problems
     40
     41 l)  Operator evaluates representative GENI slice performance, such as networking performance, over an extended period of time, and shares their data with others
     42
     43 
     44 
     45= Agenda =
     46
     47== 1)  Goals (Jeanne) ==
     48 
     49 a)  Basic GENI test/tutorial/experiment workflow with standardized, self-contained steps
     50 
     51 b)  Because self-contained, allows for all the variations in flow that occur in a real experiment:  repeating steps (e.g., many runs);  re-ordering steps (e.g., analyzing much later);  skipping steps  (e.g., do not archive) 
     52 
     53 c)  Because standardized and self-contained, makes it easier to design tools, by being able to focus on tools for each step, and then connections (interfaces) between steps.
     54 
     55 d)  Because standardized, makes it it easier for the user to understand a tutorial, since all will follow the same outline.
     56 
     57               
     58== 2)  High-level look at workflow (Jeanne)  ==

     63== 3)  Review of detailed workflow (Harry) ==

     66
     67
     68== 4)  Current mapping between tools and steps (Jeanne)  ==
     69
     70 [http://groups.geni.net/syseng/attachment/wiki/ExperimentMgmt/ToolBreakdownTable.jpg figure] 
     71 
     72 
     73== 5)  Discussion  (all)  ==
     74 
     75 a)  Can we agree on these standardized, self-contained steps?   what changes or additions?
     76 
     77 b)  Issue:  variations with type of users (novice to expert) and thus interfaces (graphical to script);  can these be mixed?
     78 
     79 c)  Issue:  variations between InstaGENI and ExoGENI, between GIMI and GEMINI;  is there a common set?
     80 
     81 d)  Issue: variations from this basic workflow, to more-specialized workflows;  which should be considered?
     82
     83 e)  Next steps?
