PERT Staff can access a range of tools for checking the status of the GÉANT network by logging into https://tools.geant.net/portal/
(if a member of the PERT does not have an account for this site they should contact DANTE operations firstname.lastname@example.org
The following tools are available:
GÉANT Usage Map
: For each country currently connected to GÉANT, this map shows the level of usage of the access link connecting the country's national research network to GÉANT.
: Map showing the GÉANT routers and the circuits interconnecting them. The circuits are coloured according to their utilisation. LOGIN REQUIRED
GÉANT Looking Glass
: this allows users to execute basic operational commands on GÉANT routers, including ping, traceroute and
Beacon: Beacon nodes are located in the majority of GÉANT PoPs. They send and receive a specific mulitcast group, and from this are able to infer the performance of all multicast traffic throughout GÉANT.
HADES Measure Points
: These network performance Measurement Points (MPs) run DFN's HADES IPPM software (OWD, OWDV, packet loss) and also iperf/BWCTL. PERT engineers can log in to the devices and run AB tests (they should use common sense so as not to overload low capacity or already heavily loaded paths).
BWCTL Measurement Points
: NRENs can run BWCTL/iperf tests to, from and between GEANT2's BWCTL servers. See GeantToolsDanteBwctl
for more information.
