5th & 6th June 2019, London, UK

The First European perfSONAR User Workshop brings together perfSONAR user and developer communities to explore use cases for the toolkit, to share best practices, and to discuss future features and the perfSONAR development roadmap.

The Workshop is being organised by the GÉANT GN4-3 project, Work Package 6 ("Network Technologies and Services Development"), including the perfSONAR development team within Task 3, and hosted by Jisc at their offices in London on 5-6 June 2019.  The workshop will run from 10am to 5pm BST on both days.

perfSONAR is a network measurement toolkit designed to provide federated coverage of paths, and help to establish end-to-end usage expectations.  There are 1000s of perfSONAR instances deployed world wide, many of which are available for open testing of key measures of network performance.  This global infrastructure helps to identify and isolate problems as they happen, making the role of supporting network users easier for engineering teams, and increasing productivity when utilising network resources

The event is open to anyone with an interest in perfSONAR.  It will be followed by a (private) developer debrief on 7th June, for which there is a separate registration page.

Location

The meeting location is the Jisc offices, 15 Fetter Lane, London EC4A, 1BW, UK
