This milestone deals with the development of a measurement framework
based on GENI real-time measurement requirements and other
developments/resources within the GENI prototyping activities.
Interacting with other prototype efforts, we identify and leverage
relevant activities, software architectures, protocols, and products.
This work deals with a number of software architectures dedicated to
network measurements which could serve as an interface between a
unified measurement framework (UMF), the control framework, and the
GENI experimenter. We assess several network management protocols and
data exchange formats with respect to their ability of exchanging
measurement and control information between the substrate's
performance monitors and the UMF, as well as between the UMF and the
GENI control frameworks.
