Jacks Bugs

HIGH (required to remove beta)

  • Deconflict manifests so we can combine the manifests from multiple AMs. JON WORKING ON THIS
  • Ensure full constraints based on all AMs work with reasonable defaults JON WORKING ON THIS
    • includes being able to get a reasonable list of available OSes (perhaps constructed from the advertisement)
    • Limit aggregates to bind to things Jacks understands (for example, don't include OpenFlow aggregates)
  • Make saved RSpec format prettified
  • For bound requests and all manifest, make sure the site ID is not a number but the site name instead
  • Use site name from component_manager_id if present
  • Proper handling of lan/vlan toggling
  • fix the formatting of the "Resource Details" tab which contains the content which is currently on the production Slice page
  • Make sure we can still reserve at OpenFlow aggregates using canned RSpecs
  • Adding the vtop:link_attribute nomac_learning?JON WORKING ON THIS


  • UI cleanup items on Jon's list (including changing the router image)
  • FireFox formatting JON WORKING ON THIS
  • bind to a PC (i.e be able to set the component_id on a node)


  • key Safari bugs JON WORKING ON THIS
  • Change node ID changes interface ID

Jacks enhancements


  • NEW Copy-paste (see description under (1) below)
  • Remove a node from a LAN


  • Add a LAN with only 1 node (like shared VLAN)
  • NEW Substantial node type features (see description under (2) below)
  • NEW Auto-IP


  • Pan/Zoom
  • Show actual path of stitched links
  • Allow moving shared VLAN UI element
  • Support non ASCII OS ???

Explanation of NEW items from above

1) Add "copy and paste" to Jacks (Flack has had it for a long time).

  • Without copy and paste you introduce a huge risk for introducing manual errors.
  • But a big reason we want this is that we are trying to encourage experimenters to define standard node types (or templates if you prefer) which they replicate as needed. Copy and paste is a cheap way of getting this feature.
  • Priority: Not required to get out Jacks out of beta, but top of the list after that

2) We'd also like to discuss adding more substantial support for node types with Jon. We envision two distinct possibilities:

a) Support for Pre-canned node types (a button with a custom icon, OS image, install/execute scripts, even an OF controller that serves a particular function such as "firewall") b) Support for Custom node types. Allow the experimenter to define their own node types (icon, image, install/execute, etc for a a particular function) on the fly.

  • Priority: Nice to have. We like to discuss this with him so it's in the back of his head as he's developing new features.
