GEMINI Portal Automatic setup, little effort required on user’s part. Simply run the instrumentize script.
Basic Flow When slice is instrumentized, basic configuration data is sent to the Portal (manifest, mc address, user crypts). Data saved in database. Portal DB Instrumetize Scripts
User Login User accesses Portal through web browser. Login is via hash of passphrase. Can be done automatically if user data is known ie we can access user credentials.
Portal Interface Portal creates web page with map view and supporting data that is loaded onto the users browser. Most of the action now takes place on the browser.
Measurement Access Browser may contact MCs for a variety of data: graphs, INSTOOLS, perfsonar. Any online resource that can be parsed from the slice’s manifest.
Proposed Integrations Credential management is cumbersome. Investigating integration with ABAC for a more unified credentialing system.
Proposed Integrations Configuration data is limited to manifest created at slice’s instrumentation. Looking into integration with UNIS for a more unified, complete, and up to date data.
GEMINI Portal Provides visual overview of a slice. Allows easy access to a slice’s metrics. Quick and easy archive points. Can be extended to access a variety of online resources. Needs improvements for credentials. Could benefit from unified data store.
