How to Run and Install an application on the nodes
You should also have installed a disk image with omf on the nodes of the testbed you are using (e.g. "baseline.ndz"). See How to install a disk image.
In this tutorial, you will learn a simple way to execute and install an application on the nodes of a testbed.
The tutorial experiments
These files contain extensive comments that should help you understand the different steps involved.
To run these example scripts, use the following command:
omf exec tut_app_1 omf exec tut_app_2
NOTE: For the first example, tcpdump outputs its user message on STDERR and not STDOUT, thus when running this tutorial script, please ignore false error messages such as: "ERROR nodeApp: tcpdump: listening on ath0, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 96 bytes"
If you would like to use the same application but with different parameters (or with parameters that you would like to dynamically change during the course of the experiment), then you should consider using a "prototype" around your application, as explained in this other tutorial.
