perfSONAR in an SDN environment

As SDN networks become more prevalent, the ability of the users of the network to verify performance becomes more complicated. perfSONAR, which is a common tool for such tasks, does not perform well in a VM environment, and may not be suited for the traditional deployment model of a testbed, where software runs on a sliced server. One possibility may be creating a perfSONAR service which can be sliced to allow users to do adhoc testing within their own slices. Performance under this method will be compared to performance on a bare metal system and next steps will be discussed.
