DETER is an Emulab based testbed consisting of about 200 server class machines at the University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute in Marina del Rey, California, USA and 200 nodes at the University of California, Berkeley in Berkeley, California, USA. Our project homepage which lists publications and funders can be found at http://www.isi.edu/deter. The web interface for the DETER testbed can be found at http://www.isi.deterlab.net
DETER is based on the Emulab software and the fundamentals of Emulab and DETER are very similar. For things such as tutorials or NS command references, we rely on the Emulab documentation. We attempt to only document the ways that DETER differs from Emulab in the DETER wiki. There is one problem with this, however, which is that the Emulab documentation includes direct links to the main Emulab site instead of DETER. For example, in the tutorial, there may be a link to the page that lists available operating systems for Emulab. We have setup a simple proxy to take these links and link them to DETER. DETER can and does differ from Emulab with the features we offer, node types we have, tools we have available, and operating systems we support. Below are links to DETER specific wiki pages as well as the general Emulab documentation.
