The service provides indicators and management fundtions for traffic on the Energy Sciences Network (ESnet). It supplements that network infrastructure by dynamically assigning secure circuits that guarantee bandwidth needed to support computation-intensive processing and large data transfers. This traffic management helps to prevent disruption to researchers' processing tasks due to limits on network capacity.
API methods support creating, listing, reviewing, and updating reservations for network capacity within the ESNet infrastructure. Methods also provide information about the available network topology and allow definition of data-transfer paths.
