T4) GENI I&M Testing Environment

Platform Targets
Experiment and Measurement Orchestration Tools
Interfaces/Protocols Between Tools and Services

1) Goals

Provide a concise definition of the GENI environment for acceptance testing and operating GENI I&M tools.
Define a step-by-step process for the GEMINI and GIMI tools sets over Spirals 4, 5 and 6 such that:

They deliver useful tools in each spiral
They eventually provide tools that can be included in slices built with any type of GENI hosts
Included GENI hosts should be those provided by ExoGENI and InstaGENI racks, as soon as they are available

2) Tasks

Define the environment where the GENI I&M tools must operate and will be tested, including:

User tools and services for experiment and measurement, setup and orchestration
Interfaces/protocols/APIs between user tools and GENI aggregates
Included GENI aggregtaes, with enumerated topologies

3) Team

LEAD Harry Mussman (GPO)
Martin Swany (IU)
Jim Griffioen (U Kentucky)
Ilia Baldine, for ExoGENI racks (RENCI)
?, for InstaGENI racks (?)
David Irwin (UMass Amherst)
Mike Zink (UMass Amherst)
Christoph Dwertmann (NICTA)
Tom Mitchell (GPO)
Aaron Helsinger (GPO)
Vic Thomas (GPO)

4) Meetings

(organized calls or meetings before GEC13?)

Review conclusions in pre-meeting at GEC13

Review with working team at GEC13

5) Open Issues

6) Definition of GENI Environment

6.1) Spiral-by-Spiral Goals

Define a step-by-step process for the GEMINI and GIMI tools sets over Spirals 4, 5 and 6 such that:

They deliver useful tools in each spiral
They eventually provide tools that can be included in slices built with any type of GENI hosts
Included GENI hosts should be those provided by ExoGENI and InstaGENI racks, as soon as they are available

Start where they are now:

GEMINI is based on LAMP and INSTOOLS, that have been demonstrated/used on Emulab/protoGENI resources
GIMI is based on OML, that has operated in the OMF environment. However, a GIMI co-PI (Ilia Baldine) is also PI of the ORCA and ExoGENI projects

Goals for Spiral 4:

By the end of Spiral 4, GEMINI tools will test/operate in slices built in Emulab/protoGENI/InstaGENI environment
By the end of Spiral 4, GIMI tools will test/operate in slices built in ORCA/ExoGENI environemnt
As much as possible, the two groups will use common user tools and common interfaces/protocols/APIs
As much as possible, the two groups will avoid arrangements customized to one environment
Both groups will be ready to provide tutorials on their capabilities starting at GEC-14.
