Agenda:

1) Upcoming software release

Ilia:

+ On track to do committed features

  • Except for Shibboleth

+ Made plugins less VM independent.
+ New API to build better policies for substrates, particularly beyond VMs
+ Local (actor) regsitry to see available actors.

+ Easy lease cancellation

Hongwei: Broker interaction features? e.g., delegate?
Jeff: Not committed. (not included in roadmap)

1b) Clearinghouse issues

Need to resend password

Can restart clearinghouse
Can we reset individul actors (brokers)? No now; can this be added?

Probably no need to update clearinghouse code, since latest changes do not affect brokers

When there are issues, enter a ticket

2) GEC7 demos

Note: Projects should correct and expand this list.

LEARN: Use RENCI/BEN's Infinera DTNs for the demonstration of the measurement handler software together with IMF project. Remote connect to local ORCA; by GEC8, control LEARN

KanseiGenie: Instrument Kansei. For regression analysis of wireless link properties, demonstrate the use of the two testbeds Kansei and NetEye through a unified user interface.

ViSE: VLAN connections from sensors, through NLR, to RENCI or EC2.

DOME: Management interface, 900-MHz radios,...

IMF: Gather data from BEN, distribute with Pub-Sub system

ORCA/BEN: Connect multiple sites via NLR, e.g., demo floor to ?

iGENI: Provisioning two 10Gbps links, Starlight via NLR to RENCI. Dynamic provisioning of the paths. Novel high-performance protocols.

iGENI: Towards extended Cluster D connectivity.
Direct fiber from Starlight to Ohio State, and other sites.
Will be using QinQ to mitigate numbering issues.

3) NDL workshop

Ilia: ORCA/BEN first to use ontological approach to provisioning, not just network planning.
Richness of existing tools is an advantage.

NDL workshop after GEC7, 3/18pm. Explain apporach, advantages. Use cases.
To prepare, short webex in early Feb. All are welcome. Ilia will send doodle, invite.

4) Issues, problems, concerns

Joe: Useful to have periodic Cluster D calls, e.g., every two weeks.
Ilia: Will plan for every two weeks, perhaps this time on Thursday, send doodle and invite.

Deniz: Instantiating ORCA in lab, and write 3750 drivers. Starting with 6509 drivers. Any other resources?
Ilia: There is a template driver, but 6509 driver is perhaps the closest.
Jeff: Drivers close to handler. If switch presents a reasonable interface, then do not need a driver.
Harry: How does this work? What functions where?
Ilia: Will send some info.
Jeff: High level abstraction is in the handler.
Harry: Interested 3750, NEC switches here.

5) Interactions between projects and GPO

Harry: PIs and delegates should input more directly to wiki; will send instructions.
Harry: Will put early agenda for Cluster D meetings on wiki.
