INSTOOLS Evaluation

The INSTOOLS V3.3 software evaluated has been downloaded from h, this link was obtained from the [ Instrumentize ] wiki page

The version of INSTOOLS evaluated required Fedora Core x

Time Frame: This evaluation took place starting September 14th



The INSTOOLS v3.3 package software was found by reviewing the August2011 status report . From the status page, users are redirected to the INSTOOLS summary page, where the user can find that the package and documentation are found at Instrumentize page.

Downloaded the INSTOOLS V3.3 package, which contains both the INSTOOLS python scripts and it supporting documentation. After downloading and unpacking the package, reviewed the docs/README and the docs/INSTOOLSf-SETUP files for additional instructions.

Set up the prerequisites which require:

  • placing the file SSL Certificate encrypted.pem and the password files in ~/.ssl/ directory.
  • creating a file defining the XMLRPC_SERVER value.

Create an experiment. Note: this step creates a slice and assigns resources to the slice:

$ ./ -n neverslice2 -m uky.rspec 
Got my SA credential
No such slice registered here:Creating new slice called neverslice2
New slice created

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 149, in <module>
    current_slice_expiration = datetime.datetime(*time.strptime(instools_util.findSliceExpiry(slicecred, debug,LOGFILE),"%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S")[0:6])
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/", line 454, in _strptime_time
    return _strptime(data_string, format)[0]
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/", line 328, in _strptime
ValueError: unconverted data remains: Z

Waiting on answer for above
