     17== Milestones ==
     19__Initial integration with AM and other campuses:__ We deployed a Expedient and Opt-In manager instance connected to the IU Flowvisor. This deployment was successfully used as part of the GENI for Everyone demo. The demonstration showed that a rather complex OpenFlow topology (3 Openflow enabled switches over 2 campuses) could be utilized for external experiments. There were issues with slice creation on the MyPLC nodes in Bloomington because of issues with the nodemanager code crashing on the Planetlab hosts but this was not realted to the core OpenFlow deployment.
     24== Deliverables ==
     26__Measurement Manager__: The Measurement Manager was originally deployed and demonstrated at GEC9. This software capture information about the state of the OpenFlow infrastructure including topology, utilization and configuration of each OpenFlow aggregate. It also captures information thorough the FlowVisor API about the configuration and use of each slice. The collected information can be used by the experimenter, GENI operator or the aggregate owner to monitor and capture information about the experiments and the state of the infrastructure.
     28For GEC10 we demistrated additional monitoring
     31Currently data is being collected from the IU, National Lambda Rail and Internet2 OpenFlow networks
     33More information about the Measurement Manager is at:
     34[ Measurement Manager]
     37Currently a number of Measurement Manager output formats are used to drive data collection. The Measurement Manager
     38generates configuration for measurement, monitoring and collection of topology information. Some of the live data from the GENI
     39OpenFlow infrastructure is linked below.
