ALTO installation

Y. Richard Yang

A few more items:
- Cam we use Skype (I have Azher already) for more real-time sync up?

- ALTO server needs to extract routing information from ODL. The current version allows routing query by ip addresses only---transport ports work-in-progress. My understanding is that you will use PCE for path computation:
1. Your UI allows a user to pick a src-dst pair (already done);
2. Your backend can enumerate all paths for the pair (already done);
3.1 Your backend calls PCE in ODL to compute a path (work in progress)?
3.2. Your backend install the path
Could you keep us updated on your status?

- ALTO can aggregate network information sources beyond ODL modules (e.g., perfSONAR) to provide unified info. Any opinion on how you want to collect such info (OpenFlow flow stat does not provide latency)? 

- Which software do you use in the demo for file transfer?  iperf, or another?

Thanks a lot!

Hi Losif,

We will be happy to do so. 

Azher: We need access to your installation of ODL so that we can add the ALTO module. To be safer, so that our addition will not break your existing ODL, how about you tell us the extract setting of ODL you installed? We will create a VM, first do the exactly same install, test, and then add ALTO and other needed modules, and then test. In other words, there will be two VMs running. One is your current working VM, and the other is the VM with extension. We will always have a backup. How dies the proceeding sound?

Hello Richard,

To follow-up our discussion about running ALTO services
at SC15, I would like to ask you and your team if you can
help  to correctly setup ALTO on our test-bed controller at
Caltech and than to try to use it in a quite similar set-up as for the SC15.
Azher will help to make   access accounts to our controller.

Thank you very much,

Best Regards,
