The project will create an instrumentation and measurement system, based on perfSONAR, for use by experimenters on ProtoGENI. The project will collaborate on a plan to develop a common GENI instrumentation and measurement architecture with an emphasis on providing a common but extensible format for data storage and exchange. The project will work to develop a representation of GENI topology to be used to describe measurements and experiment configuration, also based on perfSONAR. The project will collaborate with related GENI measurement and security projects (e.g. University of Wisconsin's Instrumentation and Measurement for GENI) on a common GENI instrumentation and measurement architecture.

Current Capabilities

Color(yellow,black,NEW!)? (09/22/2010) LAMP I&M System RC1 released. Documentation is still in development, but we've made a Quick Start guide that you can follow to setup your slice and enable the LAMP services for instrumentation and measurement. Please send comments, feedback and bug reports to!

Spiral 2 Connectivity

Links to wiki pages about details of infrastrcture that the project is using (if any). Examples include IP addresses, hostnames, URLs, DNS servers, local site network maps, VLANIDs (if permanent VLANs are used), pointers to public keys. GPO may do first drafts of any of these and have the PI correct them to bootstrap. May also include ticket links for pending or known connectivity issues. Many projects will have a full tree of wiki pages here.
