S3MONITOR Project Status Report

Period: March 2012 to July 2012

Title: Scalable, Extensible, and Safe Monitoring of GENI Clusters

Authors:

Sonia Fahmy, Purdue University

I. Major accomplishments

A. Milestones achieved

We have completed the second programming exercise for graduate students using GENI, and are currently exploring two ideas for additional exercises.

B. Deliverables made

The first two programming exercises for graduate students using GENI are complete, and good progress is being made on another.

II. Description of work performed since last report

A. Activities and findings

We have completed the student handout, instructor manual and solutions for the first two programming exercises. The student handouts are available on our wiki page (see C below), whereas the instructor manuals and solutions are available to instructors upon request.

We have presented our work on exercises for graduate students using GENI at GEC 14 and the NSF Workshop on Designing Tools and Curricula for Undergraduate Courses in Distributed Systems (see C below).

D. Outreach activities

Sonia Fahmy is serving as an Area technical program committee (TPC) chair for IEEE ICNP 2012 and IEEE INFOCOM 2013.

Sonia Fahmy and Ethan Blanton participated in the 14th GENI Engineering Conference in Boston, MA, in July 2012, and presented the presentation listed in C above at the NSF Workshop on Designing Tools and Curricula for Undergraduate Courses in Distributed Systems, and at the Curriculum session at the GEC.

E. Collaborations

We have had several discussions with Prasad Calyam and Marcio Faerman from the Ohio State University regarding developing a resource allocation exercise using the virtual desktop cloud system developed by them.
