03 - Automated GOLE Dashboard

Daniel Romão (University of Amsterdam)

The Global Lambda Integrated Facility (GLIF) Automated GOLE is a collaboration of GLIF Open Lightpath Exchanges (GOLEs) and networks to deliver dynamic circuits end-to-end. To date this is achieved by using VLANs and QoS, although the underlying standard, the Network Service Interface (NSI) by OGF is technology agnostic. Such multi-domain collaboration poses, however, many operational and maintenance issues. The AutoGOLE Dashboard is a monitoring tool that shows the status and configuration of the participating NSI domains. It actively performs configuration checks, indicating faults, and perform connectivity tests for NSA hosts and layer 2 paths. The current work is already helping AutoGOLE operators finding issues with their NSAs. Future developments will focus on increasing and enhancing the feature set, including more detailed path testing.
