This effort will develop a prototype shared measurement service based on the existing S3 service, integrate it with ProtoGENI and deploy it for GENI experimenter's use. This shared measurement service will emphasize scalability and safety to best utilize network resources associated with measurements. The project will also analyze GENI privacy and security requirements for measured data, and prototype the service to address appropriate requirements in each development spiral. 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

The S3 measurement service is available for download through A demo installation is also linked from that URL.
