1. Design the Experiment

In today's experiment you will use resources from the aggregate listed on your worksheet.

1.1 Obtain Resources

You can use the portal, Jacks or Omni to create your slice and allocate resources. The instructions here assume you are using Jacks.

Click on the project name and find the slice you created earlier in this tutorial.

1.2 Reserve Two Virtual Machines at One Aggregate

We will use the same topology used in the previous exercises: Two nodes connected by a link.

The RSpec you will need is at

You can import this RSpec directly via the portal, into Jacks, or use it with Omni. Please use the same aggregate (rack) you used for your other exercises.

Wait until the Jacks canvas turns green. If you are using Omni, wait until tells you your resources are ready and gives you ssh commands you can use to log into your nodes. If you are using the portal, wait until the slice page tells you that your resources are ready and you can get your login details via the "Details" button.

1.3 Note the ssh information for the server and client nodes

In you worksheet, write down the IP addresses and port numbers used to ssh into the server and client nodes.
