12Hello Robert,
13
14I have been taking a look a the NetKarma Version 2.5 and have some feedback.
15
161. The NetKarma Version 2.5 Quick Start Guide instruct the user to download
17    version 2.0 files rather than version 2.5 :
18 "https://pti.iu.edu/sites/default/files/karma-adaptor-2.0.tar.gz" and
19 " https://pti.iu.edu/sites/default/files/karma-adaptor_v2.0_user_manual.pdf"
20
212. The NetKarma Version 2.5  Adaptor requires ANT and JDK to be installed, which
22    are not listed as prerequisites in the Quick Start Guide. Also RabbitMQ shoudl
23    be listed as a prerequisite.
24
253. Using the README for the NetKarma Adaptor.  In the section named
26   "Edit the Environment Configuration File" the user is instructed to set
27    "ADAPTOR_HOME, JAVA_HOME, and ANT_HOME", the first two exist in
28   the configuration file, but ANT_HOME does not exist.
29
304. The Quick Start Guide Steps 4 and 5 instruct to modify karma-adaptor.properties
31   and KarmaQueryConfig.txt, but does not provide a path to these files.
32
335.  The "NetKarma GUSH Adaptor Tool User Manual"  section 2.2 "Service Dependencies"
34      instructs me to download  RabbitMQ, but does not specify if I need the server, the client,
35     both, or some other  component.
36
376. The "NetKarma GUSH Adaptor Tool User Manual"  section 3 lists "karma-adaptor.homedir"
38     as a karma-adaptor.properties setting, but is  not found in the file.  Is this an optional setting?
39
407. The "NetKarma GUSH Adaptor Tool User Manual"  section 3 describes the setting
41    "messaging.hostname" as "Hostname that hosts RabbitMQ Server" but the configuration
42   file karma-adaptor.properties describes the same setting as the
43  "<URL where RabbitMQ server is hosted>".  After trying  both seems the the URL description
44  is incorrect, properties file needs update.
45
468. Question, should I be able to process a gush logfile using the ruleset.xml delivered as part of the
47    adaptor package?  I tried  parsing a very simple gush log (start and stop gush) with the
48   provenance_collection.sh script and   it fails with "Invalid rulefile, use the correct version of the rulefile!"
