Multi-belt Onion-ring Visualization of OF@TEIN Testbed for SmartX Multi-View Visibility

Muhammad Usman, Nguyen Tien Manh, JongWon Kim

Abstract— ICT infrastructure visualization based on collected visibility data is essential for the effect ive operation of contemporary SDN (Software-Defined Networking)-enabled cloud playground. More precisely, collecting and visualizing visibility information about various physical, virtual, and container (p+v+c) types of resources is one of the key requirement for mult isite cloud playground operators. In order to address the playground visibility challenges, we have been developing a mult i-layered visibility and visualization solution denoted as SmartX Mult i-View Visibility Framework (MVF). By extending our earlier effort, in this paper, we attempt to realize multi-belt onion-ring style visualization software to assist both playground developers and operators in capturing the end-to-end visualization of infrastructure resources and flows.

Index Terms— Multisite cloud, software-defined networks, multi-layer visibility, onion-ring visualization.
