    26261. GENI provides a common interface that lets you reserve resources from many aggregates using a common set of credentials, and a common API (the Aggregate Manager or AM API).  In addition, GENI experimenter tools may be helpful to you as you use these aggregates.

    3232Check the aggregate information pages for the aggregates you're interested in using.  (There are links from the "GENI Aggregates" section of the [wiki:ExperimenterPortal Experimenter's Portal].)  Aggregates that support the GENI AM API list an Aggregate Manager URL in the "Using This Aggregate" section.  Currently, these are chiefly [http://www.planetlab.org PlanetLab]-based and [http://www.protogeni.net ProtoGENI]-based aggregates.

    36 Because the GENI AM API supports a federated web of trust, it's possible that you already have a credential.  If you are a [http://www.planetlab.org PlanetLab], [http://www.protogeni.net ProtoGENI], or [http://www.emulab.net Emulab] user, you can use your existing credential with the AM API.  If not, check the "Get GENI Credentials" section of the [wiki:GENIExperimenter omni howto].
