GÉANT logo

Berlin, Germany, 19-21 March 2013


Description of the event: First training event focusing on creating a live monitoring environment based on perfSONAR MDM distributions offering the following measurements:

  • One-way delay
  • One-way delay variation (IPDV)
  • Packet loss
  • Traceroute
  • Bandwidth

The course will explain how to access measuremts from a webinterface using pre-installed virtual machines. The training will focus then entirely on configuring perfSONAR MDM to create a real monitoring environment.

The course will also cover the configuration of all the components required for the interoperability with perfSONAR PS and other deployments. It will include practical exercises, live, on-demand and scheduled measurements will be a relevant part of the training syllabus.

The training team will run the central monitoring components (central archives to store the measurements) and the perfSONAR Web Interface server. The training includes an introduction to network troubleshooting using the perfSONAR web interface

The training will also provide an opportunity for user feedback on the software and interface itself, so your input will be fed into the further development of the tool. There will be time for discussion and Q&A in a nice and friendly atmosphere.

Training goals

At the end of the training the participants will have built a complete monitoring infrastructure, running on-demand measurements and inspecting tests results from a web interface.
