Upon consultation with GPO, the priorities of the project were revisited for Year 2 of this project. As a result, Year 2 (Spiral 3) goals were focused on integrating the developed IMF capabilities for measurement, and transfer of measurement (from substrate to in-slice stack), with existing GENI Inst&Meas capabilities; specifically, to integrate and install perfSONAR (pS) MPs and archives to collect performance measurement data from Polatis switches and Infinera DWDM platforms on 4 BEN sites, and (subsequently) integrate pS MP polling, or adopt other GENI I&M capabilities, into IMF to mediate the ability of in-slice reactive protocols to communicate back to actuators in the substrate.

At GEC10, the first of these (collecting performance data from Polatis using pS) capability has been completed. This leverages Spiral 3 goals of the ERM project team, who also form the Columbia U part of the IMF team.

Integrated quarterly report and code documentation (this wiki)


Participants of the IMF team attended GECs as well as meetings of the Instrumentation and Measurement Working Group as possible. We have previously collaborated with the GENI LEARN project team, and progressing toward deploying IMF in LEARN.


The IMF team continued to collaborate with Deniz Gurkan of the GENI project LEARN.
