The ResourceSync Simulator simulates a ResourceSync Source, which is a server that hosts resources subject to synchronization.
Any ResourceSync-compliant client can be used to synchronize a Destination with the simulated Source. This version of the simulator is written against v0.9.1 of the ResourceSync specification and has been tested with v0.9.3 of our own ResourceSync client and library reference implementation.
Make sure Python 2.6 or 2.7 is running on your system:
rsync-simulator is listed in PyPI and can be installed with pip or easy_install. Doing an easy_install should also install the dependencies resync and tornado if they are not already on your system.
Manual installation from github:
sudo easy_install resync sudo easy_install tornado
Get the ResourceSync Simulator from Github:
git clone git://github.com/resync/resync-simulator.git
Run the source simulator (with the default configuration in ./config/default.yaml):
Access from a web browser as http://localhost:8888/
Terminate the source simulator:
How to define parameterized use cases
Parameterized Use Cases can be defined by creating a YAML configuration file (e.g., simulation1.yaml and defining a set of parameters:
source: name: ResourceSync Simulator number_of_resources: 1000 change_delay: 2 event_types: [create, update, delete] average_payload: 1000 max_events: -1 stats_interval: 10
Additional resource_list_builder and change memory implementations can be attached for simulation purposes. For instance, the following configuration attaches a change memory implemented by the DynamicChangeList class:
resource_list_builder: class: DynamicResourceListBuilder uri_path: resourcelist.xml changememory: class: DynamicChangeList uri_path: changelist.xml max_changes: 1000
See the examples in the ./config directory for further details.
