Scenario-Based Configuration Management for Flexible Experimentation Infrastructures
Configuration management is a key issue in flexible networking experimentation infrastructures (i.e., testbeds). However, manual procedures have several drawbacks (such as high time consumption in tedious and mechanic operations or the probability of introducing human errors). Moreover, intertestbed scenario reutilization (i.e., the same network configuration replicated from one testbed to another) is difficult to achieve. In order to solve this limitations, automatic mechanisms are desirable in order to make testbeds profitable tools for their users.
