This proposal will deploy GENI-enabled commercial routers into the ProtoGENI backbone, develop S/W to enable per- slice monitoring and measurement, and develop tools and interfaces to control and access the measurement infrastructure. This proposal leverages measurement software developed at AT&T Research and combines it with measurement software ( INSTOOLS ) developed at the University of Kentucky

Shadownet Aggregate Information

An description of the Shadownet Aggregate can be found on the Shadownet project wiki pages.

Current Capabilities

Shadownet can easily be incorporated into an experiment by using FLACK to set up and intstrumentize the slice.
