ANNOUNCEMENTS


perfSONAR 4.1 Beta 1 available

Posted June 29, 2018 - 

The beta version of perfSONAR 4.1 is now available for testing. Note that this is just the beta version and not a final release, as such it is not recommended you install this on your production hosts. We are primarily looking for people to test out the software and identify any issues prior to the final version being made available.

perfSONAR 4.1 includes a number of changes including:

  • A new component called pSConfig to replace the MeshConfig component including a web interface for building configurations
  • A new TWAMP tool
  • Support for docker containers of the “tools" and “testpoint" bundles

Also note that we are not making 4.1 available on CentOS 6 or Debian 7 (wheezy) since both of these OSes are nearing or at their providers support end of life date. Also, BWCTL is not included by default for fresh installs of 4.1, though it will be left untouched on existing systems. See the release notes for a full list of changes and information on supported software/platforms.

For documentation related to the release including links to ISOs, information on pSConfig, docker installs and more see the page here

For instructions on how to install beta software see the document here

Finally, for a checklist to help guide you while you test see the document here

Please let us know if you have any questions and look forward to your feedback.

pScheduler API Workshop available in YouTube Channel

Posted September 20, 2017 - permalink

The perfSONAR Project team is pleased to announce the release of pScheduler API Workshop's recording on Project's YouTube channel.

pScheduler is the new test scheduler introduced in perfSONAR 4.0. One of its features is a REST API, which turns perfSONAR nodes into building blocks for other systems, reducing the need to build up additional remote measurement infrastructure, and ensuring more-accurate results by working cooperatively around other measurement activities. From a practical standpoint, this feature allows the user to give pScheduler measurement tasks, retrieve the results, and analyze important information about the system and the tasks it's performing.

Topics covered in this workshop include: reviewing the basic concepts, generation of tasks, the task lifecycle, retrieval and formatting of results, enumeration of installed plug-ins, and examination of pScheduler’s timeline.
