Abstract

Spurred by needs related to research on the effects of climate change on ecological systems, distributed facilities for ecological research are of growing importance. While software infrastructure for low-level networking services are well-established, experiments using these facilities will demand real time data-driven workflows for monitoring, model inference, and control of environmental processes. In this paper, we motivate and present a middleware-based approach that enables construction and deployment of workflows that assimilate real-time streaming data and, if necessary, command and control streams. We demonstrate the approach by developing and deploying a workflow for characterizing the round-trip delays incurred by increasing levels of software infrastructure, and using the workflow to assess time delay performance in laboratory, campus, and remote scenarios.
