Performance Measurement Platform (PMP) is a successor of the successfully completed perfSONAR Small Nodes activity within the GÉANT project.
It consists of: low-cost hardware nodes with pre-installed perfSONAR software and deployed in GÉANT collaborating organisations in Europe and Africa, and central components including a central Measurement Archive (MA) and a Dashboard. The small nodes perform regular measurements towards a few Measurement Points (MPs) located in the core of the GÉANT network and operated by the GÉANT network operations centre. The central components that manage the platform elements and that gather, store and represent the performance data are operated and maintained by the PMP operational team in the GÉANT project. Small node users can shape the predefined setup and configure additional measurements to their needs and get more familiar with the platform.
Information about the perfSONAR small node project was first presented at the TNC16 conference when the first PMP nodes were being distributed to interested NRENs. In the meantime, PMP has recently become an official GEANT production service with the plan to expand the footprint in 2019 within the GN4-3 project (Work Page 6, Task 3) to all the European NRENs and improve the service and upgrade the code of the measurement boxes. TNC19, which is attended by representatives of most NRENs, but also participants from other research and education institutions and campuses, is a great opportunity for the PMP service to organize training both for new PMP users who want to learn about the benefits of the service and the ways to use it to its full potential, and for existing users who may be interested in the planned transition and upgrade process of the service.
