NEAAR perfSONAR Training
NEAAR perfSONAR Workshop Support

Organizations investigating perfSONAR deployments are often limited by resources - especially for larger first-time deployments. In these cases, it is often advantageous for RENs to have access to low-cost, smaller perfSONAR nodes and to participate in in-depth, hands-on training workshops to learn how to effectively utilize the perfSONAR toolkit. The NEAAR partners work with RENs in Africa to help identify the need for perfSONAR deployments, to fund low-cost nodes, and to deliver relevant training to local network engineers. NEAAR-supported training workshops provide these engineers with an overview of the perfSONAR toolkit, a hands-on experience installing and using it, and an introduction to interpreting output and troubleshooting any observed network issues.
