How to Share a VLAN

The contents of this page are adapted from an e-mail from Leigh Stoller.

Caveats at ProtoGENI:

  1. The LAN being shared must obviously be a real VLAN, not a trivial link (link between two VMs on the same physical host). In other words, the minimal case requires two VMs which each have a different component_id.
  2. There is no change to idleness or expiration behavior; these resources must be renewed like other resources using the usual mechanisms.
  3. When the shared LAN is unshared, or the slice terminated, all of the other slices that were using that LAN will have the ports yanked out and disabled. However, the resources will remain.
