Description

The current deployment of InstaGENI sites includes the following FOAM and Compute aggregate names:

Utah:        https://foam.utah.geniracks.net  and https://utah.geniracks.net
GPO:         https://foam.instageni.gpolab.bbn.com and https://instageni.gpolab.bbn.com
Northwestern:https://foam.instageni.northwestern.edu and https://instageni.northwestern.edu
Kentucky:    https://foam.lan.sdn.uky.edu:3626/foam/gapi/1 and http://lan.sdn.uky.edu/protogeni/xmlrpc/am/2.0

There does not seem to be a convention for naming the sites. In the page http://www.protogeni.net/wiki/RackSetupQuestions there is a suggestion "Domain for your rack. Something like instageni.foo.bar.edu."

Should we give a stronger indication than the current instructions, so that we may more strongly encourage the use of this naming convention?

Most aggregate names (compute & foam) include "instageni" as part of their name, while some (Utah, UKY) do not. Here are the current names:

Site Aggregate name
Utah utah.geniracks.net
GPO instageni.gpolab.bbn.com
Northwestern instageni.northwestern.edu
Kentucky lan.sdn.uky.edu
GATech instageni.rnoc.gatech.edu

Not sure what are the planned upcoming site names and whether they will include "instageni" in their aggregate name.

Another InstaGENI site (Kettering) has been introduced with another naming approach:

Site Aggregate name
Utah utah.geniracks.net
GPO instageni.gpolab.bbn.com
Northwestern instageni.northwestern.edu
Kentucky lan.sdn.uky.edu
GATech instageni.rnoc.gatech.edu
Kettering geni.kettering.edu

Tracking naming in this ticket.

Updating this ticket to capture the aggregate names used up to now:

Site Aggregate Name
Clemson instageni.clemson.edu
GATech instageni.rnoc.gatech.edu
GPO instageni.gpolab.bbn.com
Kansas instageni.ku.gpeni.net
Kentucky lan.sdn.uky.edu
Kettering geni.kettering.edu
NYU genirack.nyu.edu
Northwestern instageni.northwestern.edu
Princeton instageni.cs.princeton.edu
Utah utah.geniracks.net

FOAM aggregate names consistently add "foam." in front of the aggregate name.
