1.3 GENI WiMAX Site Operations Resources

1.3.1 GENI WiMAX Operations Objectives

1) Each GENI WiMAX site must operate in accordance with their FCC Experimental License and/or agreement with Clearwire, to avoid interference with others (particularly Clearwire) operating in the BRS/EBS spectrum.

2) Each GENI WiMAX site must cooperate with others (particularly Clearwire) if interference is suspected, to resolve the issue. This may involve temporarily going off-the-air, to see if they are or are not the source of the observed interference.

3) Each GENI WiMAX site must verify and maintain the accuracy of the information in the tables listed below, and follow the operations procedures listed below. It is essential that each site have a responsive local "Ops" contact, as listed in the table below.

3a) Task: All entries in tables below must be verified by 12/15/12.

4) Each GENI WiMAX site must install the site monitoring software, included in the latest WiMAX RF AggMgr, so that they are automatically forwarding operating paramaters to the OML Server at Rutgers WINLAB, who will then use the data to populate the GENI WiMAX Monitoring site.

4a) Task: Rutgers WINLAB must provide the new latest WiMAX RF AggMgr, that automatically forwards operating parameters to the OML Server at Rutgers WINLAB, by 1/15/13.
4b) Task: All sites must install the new latest WiMAX RF AggMgr, and commence forwarding operating parameters to the OML Server at Rutgers WINLAB, by 2/15/13.

5) Each GENI WiMAX site is expected to make their resources available to GENI experimenters.

1.3.6 GENI WiMAX Site Experimenter Login Interfaces

Several GENI WiMAX sites support interfaces that allow an Experimenter to login, reserve resources, and then conduct experiments utilizing resources available at that site. See the following table for details.

This login approach follows the method supported by the ORBIT testbed, although the exact login process varies as noted.

GENI WiMAX Site Deployments wiki pages

1.4 GENI WiMAX Omf Site Setup

1.4.1 Network setup and configuration

A site will receive a console machine, which runs all the OMF aggregate manager services and three client resources. Two of these client resources will have a 12V power supply so that they can function as a mobile node, if needed. The third client will have a power supply so that it is fixed in its deployment. All services on the console machine will be configured to use the geni.net sub-domain and all IP addresses will be initially configured in the following scheme.

  • Data - 10.20.0.X/24
  • CM - 10.0.0.X/24
  • Control - 10.10.0.X/24

Three networks Data CM Control 3 switches, 1 partitioned switch, or single cable out.

Setup networking as follows on the console host

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The CM network interface
auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static
      address 10.1.0.254
      netmask 255.255.255.0
      broadcast 10.1.0.255

# The Control network interface
auto eth3
iface eth3 inet static
      address 10.10.0.254
      netmask 255.255.255.0
      broadcast 10.10.0.255

# The  Data network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
      address 10.20.0.254
      netmask 255.255.255.0
      broadcast 10.20.0.255

# The primary network interface
auto eth2
iface eth2 inet dhcp

One unmanaged switch per subnet

Single managed switch

Single trunk per node

The console is called console.geni.net. You can ssh into it with the following credentials.

username: native 
password: native101


==== Some useful commands ====

Once you have the testbed set up as explained above, use the following commands to talk to the nodes or troubleshoot.

1. '''omf stat'''
   
   The manual page is shown below.
{{{
> omf help stat

Returns the status of the nodes in a testbed

Usage:
       stat [-h]
       stat [-c] [DOMAIN]
       stat "[TOPOLOGY]" [DOMAIN]

      With: 
      -h, --help    print this help message
      -c, --count   print a summary of the node status for the testbed DOMAIN
                    (default is the testbed where this command is executed)
      TOPOLOGY      a valid topology description or file without the trailing '.rb'
                    (default is the entire set of nodes on the default testbed)

      Some Examples: 
                     stat all grid
                     stat "[[1,2],[1,1]]" sb1 
                     stat "[[1,1],[2..6,1..2]]" 
                     stat system:topo:all
                     stat system:topo:circle
                     stat topo_grid_active
}}}

2. '''omf tell'''
   
   The manual page is shown below.
{{{
> omf help tell

Switch ON/OFF the nodes in a testbed

Usage:
       tell [-h]
       tell [COMMAND] "[TOPOLOGY]" [DOMAIN]

      With: 
      -h, --help    print this help message

      COMMAND:
      on, -on, --turn-on              turn node(s) ON
      offs, -offs, --turn-off-soft    turn node(s) OFF (soft)
      offh, -offh, --turn-off-hard    turn node(s) OFF (hard)

      TOPOLOGY      a valid topology description or file
                    (default is the entire set of nodes on the default testbed)

      Some Examples: 
                     tell on all grid
                     tell on "1,1..2" 
                     tell offs "[[1,2],[1,1]]" sb1 
                     tell offs "[[1,1],[2..6,1..2]]" 
                     tell offh system:topo:all
