    50 The image is of the logical slice topology, it does not indicate which aggregates donated which nodes.  The master testbed column indicates which testbed is exporting its user environment into the experiment.  For TIED slices, this will usually be the DETER testbed.  The project column will be TIED for TIED experimenters; it indicates that the DETER TIED project is being exported into the slice.  The name of the slice is a mnemonic name attached to the slice.  It also has a [http://fedd.isi.deterlab.net/trac/wiki/FeddAbout#GlobalIdentifiers:Fedids fedid] this is not visible from this interface.  Finally there are buttons to create or terminate this slice.

     52One can create a slice either by activating one of the existing slice descriptions, which will create the slice based on its last configuration, or by going directly to the [https://www.isi.deterlab.net/fedd_create.php3 slice creation page] and providing a slice description. Slice descriptions are written in a modified ns2 language, extended to describe the embedding of nodes in the various aggregates.  The language is [http://fedd.isi.deterlab.net/trac/wiki/FeddAbout#ExperimentDescriptions briefly described] in the fedd documentation.  The configuration file used to describe each of the examples on [ttps://www.isi.deterlab.net/fedd_list.php3 the slice listing page] is available from that page as a starting point.

     54Fedd's documentation on [http://fedd.isi.deterlab.net/trac/wiki/FeddAbout#Experiments experiment creation] provides detail on how experiments are created from the description.  In reading that document from a GENI perspective, it helps to think of experiments as slices and testbeds as aggregates (the aggregate interface is provided by fedd).
