4.8) GENI Portal Service


Provide a first-order definition of a "GENI Portal Service", combining the capabilities of the various "portal services" that have been implemented to date, so that GENI I&M users can use the "GENI Portal Service" when they conduct experiments or instrument infrastructure.

– Schedule & monitor runs
– Analysis with integrated R server
– Repository for all artifacts

Current Portal Capabilities/Services

INSTOOLS project portal service (U Kentucky)


design document


Portal to MCs: Provides way to find all web servers in experimenter's slice; allows experimenter to move data to archive service (local (U Kentucky) or remote (CNRI)

Web service: Provides experimenter with a way to configure measurement, and view measured data.

LAMP project configuration service (U Delaware+)

User workspace service (GPO, CNRI)

Lab wiki service (NICTA)

Planned GENI Portal Service Features

GIMI portal service, with multiple functions.

What features are needed by GEMINI?

Are these portal services really a combination of gateway and user workspace services, with various available tools?

Summary of portal services use cases (Jeannie Ohren, GPO)

Portal services use cases

– User’s window into GENI
– Conveniently and easily manage GENI resources, I&M data, and experiment results
– A place to control the experiment
– Works for both short/small (weeks-months?) and long/large (months-years?) experiments
– MAP (Measurement, Analysis, Presentation)
– A place to store and retrieve experiment results and analysis (Lab book?)
– Largely stateless? (Does this conflict with 4?)
– A way to get to necessary GENI experimenter tools such as Flack, GUSH, OMNI
– Manages moving I&M data to archive (iRODS?) with metadata (MDOD?)
– Allows the public to access published experiment results

Planned GENI Portal Service Configuration

Basic configuration

Partitions for different users; how are they managed? can they be assigned to users using WINLAB login service?
