Abstract

The GENI Desktop supports users through the entire lifecycle of an experiment, including creating and setting up an experiment, running and interacting with the experiment, monitoring the experiment and collecting performance data, archiving the results and tearing down the experiment. It provides a single simple web-based graphical interface to access these functions. In addition, it also provides a command line interface for expert users to write scripts to control the whole process of their experiments. This chapter describes the design goals and features of the GENI Desktop. It also demonstrates usage examples showing how the GENI Desktop can help users with their experiments.
