ORCA for experimenters

Overview

ORCA offers opportunities for experimentation (on substrate belonging to Cluster D) and for developing new resource control and management policies via plugins.

ORCA default SM installation comes with an XMLRPC controller plugin that exports GENI AM API and ProtoGENI AM API that can be exercised by command-line tools.

As a first step you may consider installing an ORCA SM Actor that will enable you to use GENI and ProtoGENI tools to request resources.

Tools and APIs

ORCA supports GENI AM API and ProtoGENI AM API via the XMLRPC Controller plugin that comes with a standard Service Manager Actor. For resource descriptions ORCA supports its native NDL-OWL as well as ProtoGENI RSpec v2.
