The federated cloud is currently in testbed phase. The list of the testbed FedCloud sites is available [[Fedcloud-tf:Testbed|here]]
 
 
 
== How can I choose which FedCloud site to use? ==
 
FedCloud sites offers their resources voluntary to all the FedCloud user comunities. Anyway, they may assign you higher or lower priorities according to your particular user community and research field. To find the better site for your need, it is recommended to send an email to the [mailto:ucst@egi.eu  EGI.eu UCST Team], with a small description of your needs and your field of research.
 
 
 
== How can I get the list of the resource templates available on a site? ==
 
In a command line environment, using the rOCCI client (a guide on how to install it is available [[Fedcloud-tf:CLI Environment|here]]), you can run the following command
 
 
 
occi --endpoint ''site_occi_endpoint'' --action list --resource resource_tpl --auth x509 -X -x ''proxy_certificate''
 
 
 
where ''site_occi_endpoint'' is the site OCCI endpoint and ''proxy_certificate'' is the path to your VOMS proxy certificate (obtained via the voms-proxy-init commands, see [[Fedcloud-tf:CLI Environment#Create_a_proxy_certificate|here]])
 
 
 
== How can I get the list of the OS templates available on a site? ==
 
In a command line environment, using the rOCCI client (a guide on how to install it is available [[Fedcloud-tf:CLI Environment|here]]), you can run the following command
 
 
 
occi --endpoint ''site_occi_endpoint'' --action list --resource os_tpl --auth x509 -X -x ''proxy_certificate''
 
 
 
where ''site_occi_endpoint'' is the site OCCI endpoint and ''proxy_certificate'' is the path to your VOMS proxy certificate (obtained via the voms-proxy-init commands, see [[Fedcloud-tf:CLI Environment#Create_a_proxy_certificate|here]])
 
 
 
== How can I get information about the available VM images ==
 
The [http://marketplace.egi.eu EGI Marketplace] and the [http://appdb.egi.eu EGI Application Database] contains information about the VM images available in the EGI Federated Cloud.
 
 
 
== How can I publish my own VM image? ==
 
Publish of custom VMs is still in beta phase. Please send an email to [mailto:ucst@egi.eu EGI.eu UCST Team] for more detailed information.
 
 
 
== How can I start a VM? ==
 
In a command line environment, using the rOCCI client (a guide on how to install it is available [[Fedcloud-tf:CLI Environment|here]]), you can run the following command
 
 
 
occi --endpoint ''site_occi_endpoint'' --action create --resource compute --mixin ''os_template'' --mixin ''resource_template'' --attributes title="My rOCCI VM" --auth x509 -X -x ''proxy_certificate''
 
 
 
where ''site_occi_endpoint'' is the site OCCI endpoint, ''proxy_certificate'' is the path to your VOMS proxy certificate (obtained via the voms-proxy-init commands, see [[Fedcloud-tf:CLI Environment#Create_a_proxy_certificate|here]]), ''os_template'' is your VM OS image disk (e.x. os_tpl#debian6) and ''resource_template'' is your resource template (ex. resource_tpl#small).
 
 
 
== How can I get the status of a VM? ==
 
 
 
In a command line environment, using the rOCCI client (a guide on how to install it is available [[Fedcloud-tf:CLI Environment|here]]), you can run the following command
 
 
 
occi --endpoint ''site_occi_endpoint'' --action describe --resource compute/''VMID'' --auth x509 -X -x ''proxy_certificate''
 
 
 
where ''site_occi_endpoint'' is the site OCCI endpoint, ''proxy_certificate'' is the path to your VOMS proxy certificate (obtained via the voms-proxy-init commands, see [[Fedcloud-tf:CLI Environment#Create_a_proxy_certificate|here]]) and ''VMID'' is the VMID obtained as output of the create VM action.
 
 
 
== How can I get the list of running VM? ==
 
In a command line environment, using the rOCCI client (a guide on how to install it is available [[Fedcloud-tf:CLI Environment|here]]), you can run the following command
 
 
 
occi --endpoint ''site_occi_endpoint'' --action list --resource compute --auth x509 -X -x ''proxy_certificate''
 
 
 
where ''site_occi_endpoint'' is the site OCCI endpoint and ''proxy_certificate'' is the path to your VOMS proxy certificate (obtained via the voms-proxy-init commands, see [[Fedcloud-tf:CLI Environment#Create_a_proxy_certificate|here]])
 
 
 
== How can I stop a VM? ==
 
 
 
In a command line environment, using the rOCCI client (a guide on how to install it is available [[Fedcloud-tf:CLI Environment|here]]), you can run the following command
 
 
 
occi --endpoint ''site_occi_endpoint'' --action delete --resource compute/''VMID'' --auth x509 -X -x ''proxy_certificate''
 
 
 
where ''site_occi_endpoint'' is the site OCCI endpoint, ''proxy_certificate'' is the path to your VOMS proxy certificate (obtained via the voms-proxy-init commands, see [[Fedcloud-tf:CLI Environment#Create_a_proxy_certificate|here]]) and ''VMID'' is the VMID obtained as output of the create VM action.
