The GENI Meta-Operations Center (GMOC)
  • If it’s research, why do we care about operations?
slide2
GENI
  • Project to Build
  • Infrastructure to support greenfield network science
  • NOT Research in itself
  • The Test Track, not the car
geni summary
GENI Summary
  • Funded by NSF
  • BBN Technologies serves as the GENI Project Office (GPO)
  • 2 Solicitations so far
    • Solicitation #1 had 29 funded projects
    • Solicitation #2 had 33 funded projects
geni control frameworks
GENI Control Frameworks
  • GPO grouped projects into control framework clusters
    • each cluster is anchored by a project to develop a control plane for the facility
    • 5 clusters initially:
      • PlanetLab
      • TIED
      • ProtoGENI
      • ORCA/BEN
      • ORBIT
geni early focus slicing
GENI Early Focus: “Slicing”
  • In GENI, a slice means a set of virtualized resources connected together to provide a single virtual testbed for a scientist
  • “slicing” across parts of a control framework cluster is main thrust now
  • future will mean inter-cluster slicing & federation with other facilities & networks
what s meta mean
What’s “Meta” mean?
  • GENI is made up of many loosely affiliated projects
  • Many projects have existing means to provide operations
  • But what about operating GENI as a whole? What’s needed?
    • Option 1/NOTHING - each part can operate independently without additional effort for GENI as a whole
    • Option 2/Central GENI Operations Center - all GENI resources should be centrally managed & operated by a GENI operations center
    • Option 3/Meta-operations - GENI projects can best handle most operational tasks. For GENI as a whole, someone should coordinate operations across projects to present a single interface to operators and users.

GMOC Exchanger - Polls and/or receives operational data from aggregates

  • GMOC Repository - Central datastore for operational data from all GENI parts
  • GMOC Translator - Translates information from other formats into consistent data format
  • Operations - Watches Data to provide useful functions like Emergency Shutdown
GENI Meta-Operations Center
geni view of operational status
GENI View of Operational Status
  • Give GENI-wide view of operational status
    • maps & graphs
  • prototype other views, such as slice-by-slice views
  • Give Scientists access to their data
    • “What was going on during these 2 weeks I ran my test?”
emergency stop
Emergency Stop

Emergency Stop

  • Identify & Shut down Misbehaving Slices
  • Protect Other Slices
  • Ensure Stability
  • in Phase1, Emergency Stop will consist of a process for manual contact of projects
  • Emergency Stop Demonstration To be performed in 2010
challenge 1 federation
Challenge #1: Federation
  • GENI has many projects
    • doing different kinds of things
    • with different abilities to provide operational data
    • with different requirements for operational data
  • GMOC depends on cooperation from them all
  • Balance between central visibility and decentralized autonomy will need to evolve (and continue evolving)
challenge 3 virtualized operations
Challenge #3: Virtualized Operations
  • Everything is more temporary
    • what “slices” are out there (NOW, 3 weeks ago)?
    • How do we correlate current slices to future slices for repeatability
  • Everything is more complex
    • Many different groups to serve: Operators, Researchers, “Opt-in” Users
  • Everything is more concurrent
    • How do researchers setting up “slices” know the state of them(and not everything else)?
    • How do we “shut down” the problem parts (and not everything else)?

solicitation 2 k geni etri kisti geni collaboration
Solicitation 2: K-GENI ETRI/KISTI-GENI Collaboration
  • Scope:
    • Investigate international operational sharing and federation strategies
    • Look into interoperability between GMOC and dvNOC
      • for example: should GMOC conform to dvNOC data formats? vice versa? maybe a international “broker” to translate between them?
