This repository contains the starter code for project 2 (15-440, Fall 2015). These instructions assume you have set your GOPATH to point to the repository's root p2/ directory.

This project was designed for, and tested on AFS cluster machines, though you may choose to write and build your code locally as well.

Instructions

Compiling your code

To and compile your code, execute one or more of the following commands (the resulting binaries will be located in the $GOPATH/bin directory):

go install github.com/cmu440/tribbler/runners/srunner
go install github.com/cmu440/tribbler/runners/lrunner
go install github.com/cmu440/tribbler/runners/trunner
go install github.com/cmu440/tribbler/runners/crunner

To simply check that your code compiles (i.e. without creating the binaries), you can use the go build subcommand to compile an individual package as shown below:

# Build/compile the "tribserver" package.
go build path/to/tribserver

# A different way to build/compile the "tribserver" package.
go build github.com/cmu440/tribbler/tribserver
How to Write Go Code

If at any point you have any trouble with building, installing, or testing your code, the article titled How to Write Go Code is a great resource for understanding how Go workspaces are built and organized. You might also find the documentation for the go command to be helpful. As always, feel free to post your questions on Piazza.

Running your code

To run and test the individual components that make up the Tribbler system, we have provided four simple programs that aim to simplify the process. The programs are located in the p2/src/github.com/cmu440/tribbler/runners/ directory and may be executed from anywhere on your system. Each program is discussed individually below:

The srunner program

The srunner (StorageServer-runner) program creates and runs an instance of your StorageServer implementation. Some example usage is provided below:

# Start a single master storage server on port 9009.
./srunner -port=9009

# Start the master on port 9009 and run two additional slaves.
./srunner -port=9009 -N=3
./srunner -master="localhost:9009"
./srunner -master="localhost:9009"

Note that in the above example you do not need to specify a port for your slave storage servers. For additional usage instructions, please execute ./srunner -help or consult the srunner.go source code.

The lrunner program

The lrunner (Libstore-runner) program creates and runs an instance of your Libstore implementation. It enables you to execute Libstore methods from the command line, as shown in the example below:

# Create one (or more) storage servers in the background.
./srunner -port=9009 &

# Execute Put("thom", "yorke")
./lrunner -port=9009 p thom yorke  
OK                                 

# Execute Get("thom")
./lrunner -port=9009 g thom 
yorke

# Execute Get("jonny")
./lrunner -port=9009 g jonny
ERROR: Get operation failed with status KeyNotFound

Note that the exact error messages that are output by the lrunner program may differ depending on how your Libstore implementation. For additional usage instructions, please execute ./lrunner -help or consult the lrunner.go source code.

The trunner program

The trunner (TribServer-runner) program creates and runs an instance of your TribServer implementation. For usage instructions, please execute ./trunner -help or consult the trunner.go source code. In order to use this program for your own personal testing, you're Libstore implementation must function properly and one or more storage servers (i.e. srunner programs) must be running in the background.

The crunner program

The crunner (TribClient-runner) program creates and runs an instance of the TribClient implementation we have provided as part of the starter code. For usage instructions, please execute ./crunner -help or consult the crunner.go source code. As with the above programs, you'll need to start one or more Tribbler servers and storage servers beforehand so that the TribClient will have someone to communicate with.

Staff-compiled binaries

Last but not least, we have also provided pre-compiled binaries (i.e. they were compiled against our own reference solutions) for each of the programs discussed above. The binaries are located in the p2/sols/ directory and have been compiled against both 64-bit Mac OS X and Linux machines. Similar to the staff-compled binaries we provided in project 1, we hope these will help you test the individual components of your Tribbler system.

Executing the official tests

1. Checkpoint

The tests for checkpoint are provided as bash shell scripts in the p2/tests_cp directory. The scripts may be run from anywhere on your system (assuming your GOPATH has been set and they are being executed on a 64-bit Mac OS X or Linux machine). For example, to run the libtest.sh test, simply execute the following:

$GOPATH/tests_cp/libtest.sh

Note that these bash scripts link against both your own implementations as well as the test code located in the p2/src/github.com/cmu440/tribbler/tests_cp/ directory. What's more, a few of these tests will also run against the staff-solution binaries discussed above, thus enabling us to test the correctness of individual components of your system as opposed to your entire Tribbler system as a whole.

2. Full test

The tests for the whole project are provided as bash shell scripts in the p2/tests directory. The scripts may be run from anywhere on your system (assuming your GOPATH has been set and they are being executed on a 64-bit Mac OS X or Linux machine). For example, to run the libtest.sh test, simply execute the following:

$GOPATH/tests/libtest.sh

Note that these bash scripts link against both your own implementations as well as the test code located in the p2/src/github.com/cmu440/tribbler/tests/ directory. Similarly, a few of these tests will also run against the staff-solution binaries discussed above, thus enabling us to test the correctness of individual components of your system as opposed to your entire Tribbler system as a whole.

If you and your partner are still confused about the behavior of the testing scripts (even after you've analyzed its source code), please don't hesitate to ask us a question on Piazza!

Submitting to Autolab

To submit your code to Autolab, create a tribbler.tar file containing your implementation as follows:

cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/cmu440
tar -cvf tribbler.tar tribbler/

Miscellaneous

Reading the starter code documentation

Before you begin the project, you should read and understand all of the starter code we provide. To make this experience a little less traumatic, fire up a web server and read the documentation in a browser by executing the following command:

godoc -http=:6060 &

Then, navigate to localhost:6060/pkg/github.com/cmu440/tribbler in a browser (note that you can execute this command from anywhere in your system, assuming your GOPATH is set correctly).

Using Go on AFS

For those students who wish to write their Go code on AFS (either in a cluster or remotely), you will need to set the GOROOT environment variable as follows (this is required because Go is installed in a custom location on AFS machines):

export GOROOT=/usr/local/depot/go
