GENI Instrumentation and Measurement Working Group


Scope: Discuss, develop and build consensus around the architectural framework for the instrumentation and measurement infrastructure that will be deployed and used in GENI.

Chairs: Paul Barford Bruce Maggs

GPO System Engineer: Harry Mussman

Mail list: mail to / subscribe / mailman archive


Create an architecture for measurement that ensables GENI goals to be achieved, document and refine
Facilitate dialog and coordination between teams focussed on I&M
Identify key challenges in I&M that could otherwise inhibit the infrastructure
Solicit feedback from users
Communicate via mailing list, wiki, GECs


Meeting Minutes and Presentations


GENI I&M Capabilities Catalog

A v0.1 DRAFT has been completed by the GPO, and includes overview slides, a spreadsheet of the catalog, and drawings from referenced projects.

This document reviews each current GENI I&M project, and other selected projects, and lists:

Architecture components addressed or implemented
Implementations in GENI, or elsewhere
Uses in GENI, or elsewhere

The purpose is to:

Identify projects that can best contribute to architecture topics
Identify projects that can implement enhanced GENI capabilities in Spiral 2

GENI I&M Architecture document

A v0.1 DRAFT has been completed by the GPO, and includes the document with a configuration drawing
It was reviewed at the GEC7 WG meeting, and the following priority topics were identified and confirmed.

GENI I&M Services?

GENI Interfaces, Protocols and Schema for Measurment Data?

GENI I&M Use Cases?

GENI Measurement Plane?


  • Vision for GENI I&M (per Barford on 11/18/09)
    instrumentation and measurement systems provide broad data gathering, analysis and archieval capability
    sufficient for scientific mission
    sufficient for operations
    key for success of the infrastructure
  • Requirementsfor for GENI I&M (initial view) (per Barford on 11/18/09)
    measure details of GENI behavior with high precision and accuracy
    no impact on experiments
    large capacity
    high availability
    strong access control
    tight integration with CFs
  • Conceptual strawman (per Barford on 11/18/09)
    instrumentation - taps in the metwork and systems that provide basic signals
    collection and synthesis - programmable systems that collect, combine and transform basic signals
    archieve - measurement data index and repository
  • DatCat project, that provides a catalog that indexes Internet measurement data, which you can then find, annotate, and cite.
