      The bulk of this commit adds the ability to run the program agent on ops · e8bb6bca
      Leigh B. Stoller authored
      so that users can schedule program events to run there. For example:
      
      	set myprog [new Program $ns]
      	$myprog set node "ops"
      	$myprog set command "/usr/bin/env >& /tmp/foo"
      
      	$ns at 10 "$myprog start"
      or
      	tevc -e pid/eid now myprog start
      
      Since the program agent cannot talk to tmcd from ops, there are new
      routines to create the config files that the program agent uses, in
      the expertment tbdata directory.
      
      I also rewrote the eventsys.proxy script that starts the event
      scheduler on ops; I rolled the startup of the program agent into this
      script, via new -a option which is passed over from boss when an ops
      program agent is detected in the virt topology. This keep the number
      of new processes on ops to a small number.
      
      Also part of the above rewrite is that we now catch when event
      scheduler (or the program agent) exits abnormally, sending email to
      tbops and the swapper of the experiment. We have been seeing abnormal
      exits of the scheduler and it would good to detect and see if we can
      figure out what is going wrong.
      
      Other small bug fixes in experiment run.

      The bulk of the event system changes. · 9aa6b5ca
      Leigh B. Stoller authored
      * The per-experiment event scheduler now runs on ops instead of boss.
        Boss still runs elvind and uses events internally, but the user part
        of the event system has moved.
      
      * Part of the guts of eventsys_control moved to new script, eventsys.proxy,
        which runs on ops and fires off the event scheduler. The only tricky part
        of this is that the scheduler runs as the user, but killing it has to be
        done as root since a different person might swap out the experiment. So,
        the proxy is a perl wrapper invoked from a root ssh from boss, which
        forks, writes the pid file into /var/run/emulab/evsched/$pid_$eid.pid,
        then flips to the user and execs the event scheduler (which is careful
        not to fork). Obviously, if the kill is done as root, the pid file has to
        be stored someplace the user is not allowed to write.
      
      * The event scheduler has been rewritten to use Tim's C++ interface to the
        sshxmlrpc server on boss. Actually, I reorg'ed the scheduler so that it
        can be built either as a mysql client, or as RPC client. Note that it can
        also be built to use the SSL version of the XMLRPC server, but that will
        not go live until I finish the server stuff up. Also some goo for dealing
        with building the scheduler with C++.
      
      * Changes to several makefiles to install the ops binaries over NFS to
        /usr/testbed/opsdir. Makes life easier, but only if boss and ops are
        running the same OS. For now, using static linking on the event scheduler
        until ops upgraded to same rev as boss.
      
      * All of the event clients got little tweaks for dealing with the new CNAME
        for the event system server (event-sever). Will need to build new images
        at some point. Old images and clients will continue to work cause of an
        inetd hack on boss that uses netcat to transparently redirect elvind
        connections to ops.
      
      * Note that eventdebug needs some explaining. In order to make the inetd
        redirect work, elvind cannot be listening on the standard port. So, the
        boss event system uses an alternate port since there are just a few
        subsystems on boss that use the server, and its easy to propogate changes
        on boss. Anyway, the default for eventdebug is to connect to the standard
        port on localhost, which means it will work as expected on ops, but will
        require -b argument on boss.
      
      * Linktest changes were slightly more involved. No longer run linktest on
        boss when called from the experiment swapin path, but ssh over to ops to
        fire it off. This is done as the user of course, and there are some
        tricks to make it possible to kill a running linktest and its ssh when
        experiment swapin is canceled (or from the command line) by forcing
        allocation of a tty. I will probably revisit this at some point, but I
        did not want to spend a bunch of time on linktest.
      
      * The upgrade path detailed in doc/UPDATING is necessarily complicated and
        bound to cause consternation at remote sites doing an upgrade.

      New event agent to control wireless links. At present, this agent is · 6cf05acb
      Leigh B. Stoller authored
      very specific to wireless links in general, and to iwconfig on Redhat
      9.0. It allows you to control the entire lan or an individual member
      of a wireless lan via the event system. For example to change the
      accesspoint of a wireless lan, you could do this:
      
      	tevc -e foo/bar now lan0 modify accesspoint=00:09:5B:93:0B:A4
      
      The agent deciphers the event arguments and calls iwconfig with the
      appropriate as needed. Note that there are many ways to make the lan
      unusable doing this, so you want to be careful. You can get the MAC
      addresses from the experiment info page (tbreport).
      
      New script called link_config, which might be badly named since it
      implies generality) to front end tevc. Operates mostly like
      delay_config in that it will change the physical table settings, and
      optionally (-m) the virtual table entries. So,
      
      	link_config testbed two-wireless lan0 accesspoint=00:09:5B:93:0B:A4
      
      You can change individual members of a lan too:
      
      	link_config -s nodew1 testbed two-wireless lan0 txpower=50
      
      Currently no web interface; too much work. I will add an xmlrpc
      interface though since that is easy to do.

      Cleanup Makefiles: · 297019fb
      Mike Hibler authored
      1. "make clean" will just remove stuff built in the process of a regular build
      2. "make distclean" will also clean out configure generated files.
      
      This is how it was always supposed to be, there was just some bitrot.

      Improve the client-install. You can now do a "make client-install" from · 361ee691
      Mike Hibler authored
      the top level.  This will build all the necessary binaries and then install
      them.  This works on FBSD4 and RHL7.3.  It still doesn't work on FBSD5
      (newer compiler that no longer supports a style of use of _FUNCTION_ in the
      event lib) or RHL9 (event lib needs SSL lib which has a bad dependency
      on Kerberos).  Notes:
      
      - requires that elvin libraries be installed on nodes (they are) to build
        event agents, requires linuxthreads be installed on FBSD (it is now) to
        build imagezip (which is installed, but is not strictly necessary)
      
      - installed event-agents and other binaries are stripped
      
      - added a few missing files to the source tree for bsd (healthd.conf)
        and linux (healthd.conf, rc.local)
      
      - the only thing that doesn't get rebuilt in /usr/local/etc/emulab is
        healthd, I couldn't quickly find how it gets built
      
      - uses a scaled down version of libtb with no DB functions (since mysql
        isn't installed on nodes).  N.B. DO NOT DO A CLIENT INSTALL FROM YOUR
        REGULAR OBJ TREE OR ELSE YOU MAY WIND UP WITH A NEUTERED VERSION OF
        libtb.a!
      
      The build-as-well-as-install semantics are counter to the regular install
      targets, but this is what we gotta do for now.  Once the TB source builds
      under Linux and newer BSDs, we could undo this and just require that people
      do a regular "make" followed by "make client-install"  OTOH, there should
      be no reason to require installation of mysql and other server-side packages
      just to build clients (or make them sit through the compilation of assign),
      so maybe we will keep the client build special.

      Middle part of the event system changes. The main part of this change · 54bc15c4
      Leigh B. Stoller authored
      is to add HMACs to events to ensure they that events cannot be
      injected into an experiment by an unauthorized client.
      
      * The frontend now generates a secret key for each experiment and
        stores that into a file and in the DB.
      
      * Each of the event clients, as well as the event producers
        (scheduler, tevc) have a new -k option to specify the name of the
        file. Two new event library functions were added for clients to give
        the key:
      
          event_handle_t
          event_register_withkeyfile(char *name, int threaded, char *keyfile);
      
          event_handle_t
          event_register_withkeydata(char *name, int threaded,
      	   		       unsigned char *keydata, int keylen);
      
      * When the library is in possesion of a key, it will generate an HMAC
        and attach it to outgoing notifications. A client receiving a
        notification will compute an HMAC and compare it against the HMAC in
        the notification. If they do not compare, the notification is
        dropped with a warning message printed (the client callback never
        gets the notification). If the client has not provided a key, then
        the HMAC in the incoming notification is ignored.
      
      * The scheduler also takes a -k option, and will compute HMACs for all
        of the static events ahead of time. That keeps it off the critical
        path.
      
      * The tevc client also takes a -k option. However, tevc will always
        try to find the keyfile (default path) so that it can attach the
        HMAC to dynamic events before sending them to the scheduler (which
        will check to make sure it matches). The scheduler will not accept
        dynamic events without unless the HMAC is present and matches.
      
      * I have rebuilt the elvin librarys, removing all of the X goop and
        the SSL goop. Smaller binaries. So, I had to add -lcrypto to all of
        the client makefiles to that programs link.
      
      * The program-agent got a few more changes. The command string is no
        longer passed inside the event; it comes in when the program agent
        is started, via a config file generated from tmcd data. This gets
        rid of our mostly insecure remote execution facility.

      Some whacking of the event system. I have implemented the addressing · 8305021f
      Leigh B. Stoller authored
      scheme that we discussed in email. Notifications and subscriptions now
      take an "address_tuple" argument (I know, crappy name) that is a
      structure that looks like this:
      
      	char		*site;		/* Which Emulab site. God only */
      	char		*expt;		/* Project and experiment IDs */
      	char		*group;		/* User defined group of nodes */
      	char		*host;		/* A specific host */
      	char		*objtype;	/* LINK, TRAFGEN, etc ... */
              char		*objname;	/* link0, cbr0, cbr1, etc ... */
              char		*eventtype;	/* START, STOP, UP, DOWN, etc ... */
      
      These can be a specific value, ADDRESSTUPLE_ANY if you are a
      subscriber, or ADDRESSTUPLE_ALL if you are a producer. The reason for
      the distinction is that you can optimize the match expression with the
      extra bit of information, and the above structure can make for a
      fairly lengthy match expression, which takes more time of course.
      You should use address_tuple_alloc() and address_tuple_free() rather
      than allocating them yourself. Note that host above is actually the
      ipaddr of control interface. This turns out to be more convenient
      since free nodes do not have virtual names.
      
      Also added a new tbgen directly. This directory includes 3 programs in
      the making:
      
      tbmevd: Is the Testbed Master Event Daemon, to be run on boss and will
      handle TBCONTROL events (reboot, reload, etc). It is just a shell of a
      program right now, that takes the events but does not do anything
      useful with them. Have not defined what the events are, and what DB
      state will be modified.
      
      tbmevc: Is the Testbed Master Event Client (akin to tmcc). It
      generates TBCONTROL events which the tbmevd will pick up and do
      something useful with. This program is intended to be wrapped by a
      perl script that will ask the tmcd for the name of the boss (running
      the event daemon).
      
      sample-client: This is a little client to demonstrate how to connect
      to the event system and use the address tuple to subscribe to events,
      and then how to get information out of notifications.
      
      Note that I have not created a proper build environment yet, so new
      programs should probably go in the event dir for now, and link using
      the same approach as in tbgen/GNUmakefile.in.
