    2525Both Flack Client and package version of the INSTOOLS software were evaluated. Detailed of usage are captured in this section.
    26 == INSTOOLS FLACK Client ==
    27 
    28 Evaluation used the [http://www.netlab.uky.edu/p/instools/ Instrumentation Tools for a GENI Prototype] GEC11 Tutorial portion as a reference. Prerequisites include:
    29  * User account on one of the Emulab aggregates
    30  * Flash ready browser
    31 
    32 Once the prerequisites are met, the user can login to the [http://protogeni.net/flack.html ProtoGENI Flack Client]:

    35 
    36 User is then presented with the certificate to be used for the login, enter your pass phrase and click "OK".

    39 
    40 If you need to import the certificate select the ''Open from file'' button [[Image(open-from-file-3.jpeg)]].
    41 
    42 Once logged in the following is shown:

    45 
    46 You may now create a slice and add resources or you can simply select the ''Show only mine'' option, which will
    47 show any of your pre-existing slices.  This scenario creates a three emulab nodes slice using the flack client:
    48 
    49 [[Image(create-slice-resources-5.jpeg)]]
    50 
    51 When creating the slice, modify each of the Node to use a Fedora 8 or greater disk image, this is done by selecting the
    52 ''Node Information'' button:
    53 
    54 [[Image(node-information-6.jpeg)]]
    55 
    56 You may now create the slivers. Once the resources are ready you may select the ''Instrumentize'' button:
    57 
    58 [[Image(slice-ready-7.jpeg)]]
    59 
    60 This will kicks the INSTOOLS installation on the nodes that are part of the experiment. Note this is a slow process, be patient. Once the installation is complete you may click on the ''Go to portal'' button to get access to Instools Portal where you may visualize the slice data.
    61

    64 The slice portal looks as follows:

    67 
    68 In the portal you may choose which statistics to monitor simply by clicking on a node an selecting the graphing options that are available:

    73 You may choose to go directly to the node by clicking on the node and then clicking on the  ''All Graphs'' button:
