The monitoring of the Network component of the GISELA e- infrastructure has been performed by WP5, using the perfSONAR middleware which enables to measure and display different parameters like: bandwidth, jitter, delay for every link in a multi domain networks. For this purpose WP5 has deployed monitoring points in several Resource Centers, as shown in Table 1.

Ticket System

To manage any network problem and attend any network provision request a ticket system has been installed. It can be reached using the link

During the 2nd year, WP5 has developed a monitoring platform (MonGISELA) that allows Users and Systems administrators to know, at any one time, the network status between two or more Resource Centers. The picture below shows the Home page of the MonGISELA prototype.


From MonGISELA, one can easily obtain real-time graphs of packet losses percentage and delay between RCs. The graph below shows the minimum and average delay (blue and red lines, respectively) and the packets lost percentage (black dots) between the UFRJ and CEDIA RCs on June, 27 2012.


Administration Procedures

The procedures to administrate the monitoring platform are described in the following document:
