so from rare's point of view, it should not be a big effort except with a
very closed/tricky format...
from the receiving side, we can do prometheus or influx quite good...
influx seems better because that's a push model whereas prom is a pull
frederic have the cookbook for both...
with influx, which imho used in poznan already, so there is a cisco streaming
telemetry importer for influx,
which should read the data fluently... if not, it's a bug... and imho
frederic showed that already...

how about providing perfsonar through rare/freertr to be used for performance
since US researchers are using perfSONAR heavily, it might be of interest for
the SCinet, GRP and other research communities

there was some prior similar work with Cisco and Juniper.

That was running perfSONAR in a container on a Juniper/Cisco device, and was
generally quite limited, e.g. to 1Gbps on a management port.

I think the more useful thing to demo, if we can, if TimeMap applied to the
GP4L backbone, given Csaba s encouraging words on that. Fabio and Claudio
are considering it, but we d only do it if it was a quick thing to set up.
The win is showing TimeMap on a non Juniper platform.
