    1212To get started point your browser to [http://labwiki.casa.umass.edu]. Labwiki has three major windows. We will focus on the leftmost window first. This is the "Planning" window in which you document your experiment. (This is somewhat the equivalent of an electronic lab journal.) Documents are written in [http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/ Markdown].
    1313
    14 At the top of that window is a text field which you can use to search for existing MD scripts. Type "learningswitch" in the field and then select "learningswitch.md" from the list of files that are offered. This document has some information on the experiment that will be performed in Module A of the tutorial.

    18 The "Prepare" (middle) window allows you to define your experiment through and [http://mytestbed.net/projects/omf/wiki/OMF_Main_Page OMF]  experiment script specified in [http://mytestbed.net/projects/omf6/wiki/OEDLOMF6 OMF Experiment Description Language] (OEDL).

    20 At the top of that window is a text field which you can use to search for existing OEDL scripts. Type "GEC20" in the field and then select "GEC20-learningswitch.oedl" from the list of files that are offered. This list the experiment script in the field below.

    118118To start your experiment, simply drag the icon that is to the left of the file name (see figure below) from the middle (Prepare) to the right (Execute) window.
    119 That will automatically fill out the experiment relevant information in this window and allow you to start the actual experiment by clicking on the "Start Experiment" button.

     120 Explanation of the fields in the Execute window:
    124121
    125122* name: In this field you specify the name of your experiment.
     
    127124* project: This pull-down menu list all the projects you are currently a member of. Select the project that contains the slice you want to run your experiment on.
    128125
    129 * experiment context: With the context you can specify a certain set of experiments. E.g., a series of experiments you run under a certain set of startup parameters.
     126* experiment context: With the context you can specify a certain set of experiments. E.g., a series of experiments you run under a certain set of startup parameters. This field is not mandatory and only necessary if you would like to save your experiment data to view later.
    130127
    131 * slice: This pull down menu lists all slice that have been created under "project". Select the slice you to run your experiment on.
     128* slice: This pull down menu lists all slice that have been created under "project". Select the slice you would like to run your experiment on.
     129
     130*Change source1 and source2 fields to include your slice name similar to nodea-<slicename>

    133137=== 3.1.4 During experiment execution ===
     
    140144Now the window lists experiment properties, one or several live graphs (if they have been specified in the OEDL script), and logging information. The latter would be a good starting point for trouble shooting, should your experiment not run as expected.
    141145
     146Depending on the status of your resources and experiments, you will see one of the following statuses at the top of the Execute window:
     147 * Pending - This is the first state of your experiment where the job scheduler adds it to the run queue. This status would remain for the first few seconds before it changes to Running or Failed
     148 * Running - This status appears when your experiment starts running. If it fails for one or more reasons, a Failed status will appear instead
     149 * Aborted - When you click on "Stop Experiment" at the top-left corner of the Execute window, the status changes to aborted
     150 * Finished - When your experiment is done, you will see this status
