As a part of Google Summer of Code 2012 I am working on a project with CERN SFT as the mentoring organization. The project is titled “Continuous cartography of public network services”. In this project I will be working on an algorithm that maps IP addresses of CERN Virtual Machine File System clients to mirror servers in such a way that network latency is reduced. I would also be building a web application to allow administrators to dynamically add/remove mirror servers. The application should allow for visualization of mirror locations across the globe on a Google/OpenStreet map.
Here is the project proposal I submitted for Google Summer of Code 2012.
Carlos Aguado Sánchez is my mentor. On this blog, I will document day-to-day developments of the work.
