This effort will produce two study papers. The first will describe the increasingly complex set of system design issues involved in building an information plane for both experimenters and the various players providing network management. The second will be a systems design paper. This problem is challenging given that information may be collected or inferred in one domain in a federated environment, such as GENI, where there may be conflicting objectives across either the boundaries of federation of the infrastructure or between the GENI control and management plane and the experimental environments.

Current Capabilities

BRIEF descriptions of resources/functions/tools that are available to anyone in the GENI community.
