The Network Management Abstraction Layer (NMAL) extends perfSONAR capabilities to include automated network topology discovery and tracking in the Unified Network Information Service (UNIS), and incorporate Software Defined Networking (SDN) into overall operations of the OSiRIS distributed Ceph infrastructure. We deploy perfSONAR components both within OSiRIS and at our "client" locations to allow monitoring and measuring the networks interconnecting science domain users and OSiRIS components.

Topology discovery (using an SDN controller application) and Flange Network Orchestration (NOS) rules are used to dynamically manage network pathing in our testbed environments. NMAL components have been containerized to operate within the Services Layer at the Edge (SLATE) infrastructure, and we describe our experiences in packaging and deploying our services.
