      An attempt at making image creation an easy/automatic operation. HA! · 27f26d99
      Leigh B. Stoller authored
      This uses the pxe booted freebsd kernel and MFS. In addition, I use
      the standard testbed mechanism of specifying a startup command to
      run, which will do the imagezip to NFS mounted /proj/<pid>/.... The
      controlling script on paper sets up the database, reboots the node,
      and then waits for the startstatus to change. Then it resets the DB
      and reboots the node so that it returns back to its normal OS. The
      format of operation is:
      
      	create_image <node> <imageid> <filename>
      
      Node must be under the user's control of course. The filename must
      reside in the node's project (/proj/<pid>/whatever) since thats the
      directory that is mounted by the testbed config software when the
      machine boots. The imageid already exists in the DB, and is used to
      determine what part of the disk to zip up (say, using the slice option
      to the zipper). Since this operation is rather time consuming, it does
      the usual trick of going to background and sending email status later.

      Some minor changes, plus endless hours of PERL confusion. Anyway, add · d1c90991

      a bootstatus field to the nodes table. os_setup sets this to one of
      okay, failed, unknown. This is to be used with the still to be defined
      method of specifying certain nodes that can fail reboot on experiment
      creation. Right now sharks are wired to this, and this information is
      presented in the web page. Its also essential for the batch system,
      which needs to consider nodes that failed to reboot, or else batch
      experiments would never end. Might still need a way for an experiment
      to tell the batch system its done though.

      New libdb module. A library of some useful routines that will · 7e4ad150

      hopefully get bigger and reduce the amount of typing that we all
      do. I hacked up sched_reload and os_load to use it. Pretty simple to
      start with.
      
      I'm not planning to go much further on this until we sync up with the
      dbtoir branch since it will just create needless branch merge errors.
