Part 2 Flow Statistics Experiment in LabWiki

3. Instrument your Application using LabWiki

In this part we will run the OEDL script that we wrote in the previous step. The OEDL script is called firegenipart2.oedl

3.1.1. The "Plan" Window

Now you can use the original MD script and modify it with new information on the flow statistics and the experiment that measures the flow statistics using the Trema controller API

Look here if you have to refresh your memory on how to use the prepare window.

3.1.2 The "Prepare" Window

This experiment will do the following:

3.1.2a. Start Trema controllers on the two switch nodes in the topology shown in Part1

Show in Part1

3.1.2b. Start an Iperf server on nodef

defApplication('iperfserv') do |app|
  app.description = "manually run Iperf server"
  app.binary_path = "/usr/bin/iperf -s"
end
defGroup('Receiver', property.theReceiver) do |node|
    node.addApplication("iperfserv") do |app|
    end
  end

3.1.2c. Start Iperf clients on nodea -nodee

defApplication('iperfclient') do |app|
  app.description = "manually run Iperf client"
  app.binary_path = "/usr/bin/iperf -c 192.168.1.15 -t 100 -P 2 -i 2"
end

defGroup('Sender2', property.theSender2) do |node|
    node.addApplication("iperfclient") do |app|
    end
  end

3.1.2d. Start Flow Statistics Measurement Application written in Step 1

3.1.2e. For reference, we show the Flow Statistics script here:

Note: Create a new script by clicking on the wheel and prepend your username to the name of the script. Copy and paste the contents of firegenipart2.oedl to create a copy of your own.
Please do not modify the original script.

3.1.3 Start your application from LabWiki

To 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. 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.

Explanation of the fields in the Execute window:

  • name: In this field you specify the name of your experiment.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • slice: This pull down menu lists all slice that have been created under "project". Select the slice you to run your experiment on.

3.1.4 During experiment execution

After pressing the "Start" button, the Execute window will change and start showing status information about your experiment. The figure below gives an example for the Execute window during experiment execution.

Now 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.
