GENI Plastic Slices

The GENI Plastic Slices Project has a goal to advance meso-scale experiments to operate with production-quality GENI resources, while gaining experience in managing such an environment. The Plastic Slices project sets shared campus goals within an agreed upon schedule(by GEC12). This project plans to run ten (or more) GENI slices continuously for multiple months.

Project Plan

The Plastic Slices Project overall plan for running and managing simultaneous slices is captured in the Plastic Slices Project Plan document.

Requirements tracking

The Experimenters Requirements detailed in the project plan are tracked in the Plastic Slices effort in the Requirements Tracking page.

Baseline Evaluation Plan

Details for each baseline evaluation are captured in the Baseline Evaluation Plan. The Baselines Evaluations are designed to capture progress throughout the Plastic Slices project. Each baseline captures environment, evaluation details, evaluation criteria and a baseline report.

Environment

Capturing the definition of the environment used to validate the baselines scenarios is a crucial part of this activity. A complete definition will be captured to facilitate the repeatability of the baseline scenario in the Quality Assurance step to be performed by Georgia Tech. As part of the effort, the following will be captured:

  • Slice Snapshots - A slice-centric record of the experiment environment will be captured at each baseline.
  • Site Diagrams - A site-centric capture the topology used at each site.
  • Slice Diagrams? - A slice-centric capture each experiment topology.

As the Plastic Slices project evolves, the GPO will generate recommendations for contributors managing campus sites for the Monitoring, MyPLC?, and OpenFlow? areas. The GPO will also define Experimenters recommendations? and provide examples for potential types of experiments.

Project Status

Detailed status for major areas of the Plastic Slices project can be found in the following pages:

Monitoring Status Monitoring status and recommendations
MyPLC Status MyPLC configuration status and recommendations
OF Status OF configuration status and recommendations

Each Baseline Evaluation Status includes description of the test topology, traffic profiles, tools used, the criteria used to determine success and any assumptions made. This table provides the the "environment" (Slice Snapshots), the "plan" (Baseline Evaluation Details) and the "results" (Baseline Evaluation Status) for each baseline in the Plastic Slices project:

Environment Plan Results
Baseline1 Slices Snapshot Evaluation Details Evaluation Status
Baseline2 Slices Snapshot Evaluation Details Evaluation Status
Baseline3 Slices Snapshot Evaluation Details Evaluation Status
Baseline4 Slices Snapshot Evaluation Details Evaluation Status
Baseline5 Slices Snapshot Evaluation Details Evaluation Status
Baseline6 Slices Snapshot Evaluation Details Evaluation Status
Baseline7 Slices Snapshot Evaluation Details Evaluation Status
Baseline8 Slices Snapshot Evaluation Details Evaluation Status


Reports

While periodic updates are to be generated for each baseline to capture status progress against the planned activities, there are also three interim reports planned to be posted to the egeni-trials@lists.stanford.edu mail list and to Plastic Slices Reports page. The interim reports to be published will be at the following dates:

Interim Report Related Activities
2011-05-09 Report before Baseline 1, when BBN finalizes the initial slice configuration (all eight campuses, running ten artificial experiments).
2011-06-06 At the completion of baseline 4, after BBN replaces some artificial experiments with real experiments, and revises the slice/campus/experiment configuration as needed.
2011-06-27 At the completion of baseline 8, after BBN replaces more artificial experiments with real experiments, and revises the slice/campus/experiment configuration as needed.

Additionally a final report will be presented at GEC11 which will also be available in the Final Evaluation Report page.

Quality Assurance

Any documents, procedures or guidelines that we generate as part of the hand-off to Georgia Tech for the Quality Assurance phase of this project will be captured here.
