      More robot integration and some event system updates.
      
      	* configure, configure.in: Detect rsync for loghole and add
      	utils/loghole to the list of template files.
      
      	* db/libdb.pm.in, db/xmlconvert.in: Add virt_node_startloc to the
      	list of virtual tables.
      
      	* event/lib/event.h, event/lib/event.c, event/lib/tbevent.py.tail:
      	Add event_stop_main function to break out of the event_main()
      	loop.  Add timeline to the address tuple.
      
      	* event/sched/GNUmakefile.in, event/sched/error-record.h,
      	event/sched/error-record.c, event/sched/event-sched.8,
      	event/sched/event-sched.h, event/sched/event-sched.c,
      	event/sched/group-agent.h, event/sched/group-agent.c,
      	event/sched/listNode.h, event/sched/listNode.c,
      	event/sched/local-agent.h, event/sched/local-agent.c,
      	event/sched/node-agent.h, event/sched/node-agent.cc,
      	event/sched/queue.c, event/sched/rpc.h, event/sched/rpc.cc,
      	event/sched/simulator-agent.h, event/sched/simulator-agent.c,
      	event/sched/timeline-agent.h, event/sched/timeline-agent.c:
      	Updated event scheduler, not completely finished, but well enough
      	along for the robots.
      
      	* lib/libtb/GNUmakefile.in, lib/libtb/popenf.h,
      	lib/libtb/popenf.c, lib/libtb/systemf.h, lib/libtb/systemf.c: Add
      	some handy versions of system/popen that take format arguments.
      
      	* lib/libtb/tbdefs.h, lib/libtb/tbdefs.c: Add some more event and
      	object types.
      
      	* tbsetup/assign_wrapper.in: Add the virt_node_startloc building
      	to desires string for a node.
      
      	* tbsetup/ptopgen.in: Add a node's location to the feature list.
      
      	* tbsetup/tbreport.in: Display the timeline/sequence an event is a
      	part of.
      
      	* tbsetup/ns2ir/GNUmakefile.in: Add timeline, sequence, and
      	topography files.
      
      	* tbsetup/ns2ir/node.tcl: Add initial position for nodes and allow
      	them to be attached to "topographys".
      
      	* tbsetup/ns2ir/parse-ns.in: Make a hwtype_class array with a
      	node_type's class.  Make an 'areas' array that holds the
      	buildings where nodes are located.  Make an 'obstacles' table
      	with any obstacles in the building.
      
      	* tbsetup/ns2ir/parse.tcl.in: Move named-args function from
      	tb_compat.tcl to here.  Add reltime-to-secs function that converts
      	time given in a format like "10h2m1s" to a seconds value, used in
      	"$ns at" so its easier to write time values.  Add "K", "Kb", and
      	"Kbps" as possible units for bandwidth (only the lowercase
      	versions were available before).
      
      	* tbsetup/ns2ir/program.tcl: Add "dir" and "timeout" attributes,
      	although they don't go anywhere at the moment.

      	tbsetup/ns2ir/topography.tcl: Initial versions.
      
      	* tbsetup/ns2ir/sim.tcl.in: Add support for timelines and
      	sequences.  Add 'node-config' method to change the default
      	configuration for nodes produced by the Simulator object.  Send an
      	initial MODIFY event to any trafgen objects so their configuration
      	gets through, even when there are no start/stop events.  Move
      	event parsing to the 'make_event' method.
      
      	* utils/loghole.1, utils/loghole.in: Loghole utility, used for
      	retrieving logs from experimental nodes and creating archives of
      	the logs.
      
      	* xmlrpc/emulabclient.py.in: Escape any strange characters in the
      	output field.
      
      	* xmlrpc/emulabserver.py.in: Add virt_node_startloc to the list of
      	virtual_tables.  Add emulab.vision_config and
      	emulab.obstacle_config methods for getting information pertaining
      	to the robots.  Change the OSID listing to include more fields.
      	Add a "physical" aspect to experiment.info to get information
      	about the physical nodes.  Add parent field to the events in the
      	array returned by eventlist.  Add sshdescription to get extra
      	information needed to log into a vnode.  Add node.statewait so you
      	can wait for nodes to come up.

      Make the hurting stop.  Make sshxmlrpc auto-detect things, fails over
      properly, and dump useful information when it is unable to deal with
      the peer.
      
        * xmlrpc/sshxmlrpc.py: Major update.  It now tries to autoconfigure
          itself by scanning the path for "ssh" and "plink.exe" (although I
          haven't actually tried it on windows).  Environment variables can
          now be used to turn on debugging and set the command to use for
          doing the ssh.  Before running ssh, it will check for an agent or
          a passphrase-less key and prints a warning if it finds neither.
          The last five lines read from the server, as well as the standard
          error output, are stored so they can be dumped later; helpful for
          figuring out what is actually being run on the other side.  The
          protocol layer between ssh and xml-rpc will now respond to a
          "probe" header so that clients can figure out who they are talking
          too.  The server side will now properly detect a closed connection
          and not write anything, which means no more annoying "Write to
          stdout failed" messages.  You can now pass additional options to
          ssh and set the identity.  The module can be run standalone, with
          the default action being to probe the peer:
      
            $ ./sshxmlrpc.py ssh://boss/xmlrpc
            Probe results for: ssh://boss/xmlrpc
              response time=1.49 s
            Response Headers
              date: Wed Oct 27 16:10:58 2004
      	content-length: 0
      	probe: /usr/testbed/devel/stack/lib/sshxmlrpc.py
      	probe-response: EmulabServer
      
        * xmlrpc/sshxmlrpc_server.py.in: Set the value returned by a "probe"
          to the name of the invoked module.  This way, the other side can
          figure out who they are talking to (e.g. EmulabServer
          vs. experiment vs. fs vs. osid).
      
        * event/sched/event-sched.c, event/sched/rpc.cc, event/sched/rpc.h,
          xmlrpc/script_wrapper.py.in: Multiple paths (e.g. xmlrpc,
          $prefix/sbin/sshxmlrpc_server.py) are now probed before giving up.
          Force the use of the user's default identity and protocol one.
          For event-sched, a single connection is now made at startup and
          dropped before going into the event loop.
      
        * event/sched/GNUmakefile.in: Add a dependency for the install
          target and add -I$(OBJDIR) to the CXXFLAGS.
      
        * install/ports/ulsshxmlrpcpp/Makefile,
          install/ports/ulsshxmlrpcpp/distinfo,
          install/ports/ulsshxmlrpcpp/pkg-descr: Bump version number to 1.1
          and tweak the description.
      
        * config.h.in, configure, configure.in: Add a "#define TBROOT" that
          has the install prefix.

      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.
