<li><h3>What do I need to do to be able to use the Testbed?</h3>
<p>If you're here on your own, or you're the leader of a group
of people who want to use the Testbed, the first step is to
apply to <em>create</em> a <em>project</em>. A project is an
entity that has been approved to use the Testbed, and the
project leader is held responsible for the actions of members of
his/her project. The leader can allow users to join the project
and use the Testbed as a member of his/her project. To create a
project, click on the link in the side bar titled 'Start a
Project'. Fill out the requested information, and your request
will be submitted to the Testbed Approval Committee.
</p>
<li><h3>Someone told me to join their project. How do I do
that?</h3>
<p>The process of joining an existing project is quite
simple. Go to the 'Join a Project' page, fill out the
form, and wait for the project leader to approve you. Once
approved, you can log into the Testbed. Your project leader will
control how much access you have to Testbed resources, within
the limits given to the project as a whole.
</p>
<li><h3>I'm already a Testbed user, but I'm collaborating with
another project. Can I join that project too?</h3>
<p>Yes, if that project leader approves you.
Do the appropriate stuff on the 'Join a Project' page.
</p>
<li><h3>I've been approved. How do I use my account?</h3>
<p>The first step would be to come back here and log in to
the Web interface. That
will update list of options in the side bar.
<!-- You might be
authorized to start projects or experiments, or maybe just to
use the nodes in an experiment. Either way, your options will
show up in the side bar. -->
Those will normally include starting a new "experiment"
which leads to reserving a set of nodes, which leads to
automatic creation of Unix accounts on those nodes for all members in your
project. You will be able to use ssh to log into those machines.
<p>
You will also receive an
account on the "control" machine, and from there will be able to access
the test nodes' serial line consoles via 'tip' as well as access
console log files.

OUTLINE
Policy
Authorization Scheme
What is it?
Raw hardware and management and configuration tools.
In practice, provide some default software that many users
may want. But fundamentally, the software you run on it,
including all bits on the disks, is up to you.
What do users get?
Home dir on login node.

<ul><b>Appropriate Use:</b>
In principle, almost any research or experimental use of the testbed
by experimenters that have a need for it is appropriate.
<p>
When our resources become oversubscribed we will be allocating
resources based on some currently vague function of perceived research
value, resources required (typically number of nodes and weirdness
of software), the testbed's uniqueness as a suitable platform for the
research,
sponsorship by our primary sponsors (currently NSF and Cisco),
affiliation with an academic institution, funded project,
and for commercial users, ability to pay.
