2nd SIG-PMV meeting

The aim of the SIG-PMV Meeting is to discuss/share knowledge, expertise in form of Scenarios from research, academic ICTs and the Industry. The motto of the workshop is "Performance Monitoring and Verification - RESEARCH meets OPERATIONS". The scope of the SIG-PMV meeting address scenarios:


  • Data intensive Science: SciDMZ, DTN's and pS;
  • Multi domain monitoring - toolkits (e.g. perfSONAR etc.);
  • Wireless Network Monitoring (e.g. WiFiMon etc.);
  • L2 Monitoring (e.g. SFP optics);
  • Measurements on virtual network environments - how do you design them?
  • IPv6 - is your monitoring equivalent to IPv4? (also service differentiation, what's about IPv6-only control plane?);
  • Overlay Network Monitoring solutions (e.g. Frameworks...).


  • 100G and beyond (how to monitor/sniff/measure);
  • What's about SDN controlled Monitoring (e.g. dynamic links,...)?
  • Automatic networking (e.g. self-organizing,self-healing,...);
  • Monitoring as a Service / NMS as a Service / OSS, BSS with monitoring a d performance verification.

The meeting will begin with a range of presentations on the above topics. We will also include ample discussion time to allow attendees to review the various scenarios requiring deployment of PMV tools, and to discuss the most appropriate solutions for those scenarios. This discussion will help the SIG in determining the recommendations it wishes to make to the community. We will also discuss what gaps or features may be missing from such tools, with a view to engaging with toolkit developers to improve the state-of-the-art where necessary.

Who should attend:

Researcher, academic ICTs, PERTs of the NRENs and members from the Industry, Vendors they are working on above mentioned scenarios, are interested in PM&V or would be willing to contribute to the scope above.


Many people visiting GÉANT chose to stay at the NH City Centre or the Albus Grand Hotel, as these are both close to the office. Some alternative suggestions with a variety of prices and hotel types can be found here. **Please note - hotels in Amsterdam seem to be very full on these dates so booking as soon as possible is recommended**.
