Performance Measurement Platform (PMP) is a successor of successfully completed perfSONAR Small Nodes in GÉANT project.
It consists of:
- Low-cost hardware nodes with pre-installed perfSONAR software and deployed in GÉANT collaborating organisations in Europe and Africa.
- Central components including a central Measurement Archive (MA) and a Dashboard.
The small nodes are performing 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, gather, store and represent the performance data, are operated and maintained by the PMP operational team in GÉANT project. Small nodes users can shape the predefined setup and configure additional measurements to their needs and get more familiar with the platform.
The PMP operational team maintains an instance of the Maddash dashboard for visualising performance testing between PMP service instances in NRENs and GÉANT PoPs.
