Deploying a Service Manager

Overview

A Service Manager is the actor representing ORCA users. It can run a number of controller plugins that implement different resource management policies. Controller plugins can exhibit different interfaces - programmatic or GUI. Currently the two most common interfaces are GENI AM API and ProtoGENI AM API. The ORCA XMLRPC Controller plugin implements both of those. By installing an ORCA Service Manager actor in a container you gain access to this controller and can request resources from other ORCA actors.

Installation can be performed on any host with a public access to the Internet (to allow communication with other ORCA actors and remote actor registry).

Deploying ORCA Container with a Service Manager actor

Operation

The GUI Portal allows you to place reservations for individual slivers directly. If you want more sophisticated operation, consult documentation on ORCA XMLRPC controller on how to use the GENI and ProtoGENI AM XMLRPC API.

The page with emulation mode operation has videos that show ORCA web portal operation.
