     72=== 5.2.2 Setting up the visualization ===
     74We are now ready to graph traffic on the four links of the topology.

     112=== 5.2.3 Visualizing your Experiment ===
     114a. At this point you will see four graphs showing traffic on each of the four links on your experiment.  The traffic you see on the links is broadcast traffic from the switch on the rack to which these nodes connect.  It is not related to your experiment.
     120   <td>
     121   <ol>
     122     <li> Go back to the ssh window you used to log into the researcher node (a.k.a. <tt>user</tt>) when you did the CCN exercise.  </li>
     123     <li> Use the <tt> /opt/ccnx-atmos/ </tt> program to fetch precipitation data for a time period you had not previously fetched.  This is to make sure the data will be fetched from the data source (<tt>data</tt>) and not from the cache at some node.  The time period must be between 1 Jan 1902 and 31 Jan 1902. </li>
     124   </ol>
     125   </td>
     130b. Your graphs should now show traffic on the {{{router-dsrc1}}} and {{{link0}}} links (see example below).  The graph on the left is the network being quiet, while the graph on the right shows traffic flowing. This is because the precipitation data was not cached anywhere and had to be fetched from the data source. ''Please take note that the graphs are not scaled for direct comparison and take careful note of whether the max Y values are in bytes or kilobytes.''
     132 [[Image(, nolink, 50%)]]
     134c. Fetch the same data again.  Notice there is no experiment traffic on the links.  This is because the data was fetched from the cache on the node {{{user}}}.
     136d. You can investigate the CCN application further:
     137    1. Log into the collaborator node ({{{user-1}}}) to fetch data that was previously fetched by the researcher node ({{{user}}}).  Can you tell from where the data is fetched based on the graphs?
     138    2. From the collaborator node fetch data that was not previously fetched by the researcher.  Where did the data come from this time?
