FAB (Fabric Across Borders) is a an NSF funded research project around networking and edge computing see About FABRIC Testbed | FABRIC Testbed.
We are interested to understand where FAB may assist brokers and potentially to build demonstrations using the FAB testbed.
The Alert Stream simulator seems like a good place to get the FAB team started. Here are a few useful resources:
- some key numbers are here: https://dmtn-102.lsst.io/
- The repository for the alert stream docker container is here: GitHub - lsst-dm/alert_stream: Mock alert stream distribution system using Kafka producers and consumers.
- The operators manual is here: https://dmtn-214.lsst.io/
Note: this was running on google cloud but is currently offline.
We would like to use this community topic for further discussion and questions around the FAB collaboration.
