A number of Emulab features are not currently supported via the portal
A number of prominent Emulab features are not currently supported via the
portal interface.
These include:
@item{Traffic Generation.}
@item{Control Network Firewalls.}
@item{Batch Experiments.}
@item{Modifying a Live Experiment.}
The Emulab @link[""]{event system}
is not currently exposed through the portal interface.
Specifically, you cannot schedule events from a profile.
There is also no access to the program agent, traffic generator, or
dynamic traffic shaping as those all use events to control execution.
@bold{Modifying a Live Experiment.}
The classic interface allows you to modify the description (e.g.,
network topology or node OSes) of a running experiment.
This is not supported under the portal interface.
@bold{Batch Experiments.}
Automated execution of experiments via the
@link[""]{batch system}
is not supported.
Portal experiments can include ``startup services,'' but there is no
current equivalent to starting an experiment when resources become
available and then automatically terminating it when done.
