\renewcommand{\title}{CS 6963 Final Project---Weekly Report Format}
Your weekly report should contain the following;
\item \textit{List} what you worked on this week, even things that didn't work
\item What are the major challenges facing you at the moment?
\item What are your next steps to try to overcome or work around these challenges?
\item What are main remaining tasks on the project?
\item \textit{List} what you plan to work on next week
The report may be short, but must be supported by the contents of your repository and
your commit history.

\1 For today: finish planning the lab
\1 Main theme for today: planning for final projects
\1 Executive decisions I made (can discuss, though!)
\2 Keep one distribution for client behavior
\2 One distance per experiment?
\2 Use Linux TC for traffic shaping
\2 100 Mbit server NIC
\2 Draw the topology
\1 What you will turn in for your final project
\2 A report modeled after the ones on the site you read, including
instructions on how to re-do what you did
\2 A git repository with \textbf{everything} that went into your report---notes,
scripts, data, etc.
\3 Part of your reason for producing this is to convince me you're working
hard on the problem
\2 A CloudLab profile that makes it easy to re-do your work
\2 I will not penalize you if the results do not reproduce correctly or it's
too hard, but you have to convince me it was not from a lack of trying
\1 Major evaluations
\2 cf. questions from Lecture 13
\2 Calibrate how many runs to do
\2 How to present data: tables, graphs, etc.
\1 Some changes to class structure
\2 We are transitioning to a point where your final project is \textbf{the}
work for the class
\2 We will set aside some time each day of class to talk about progress
\2 It is your project, it is your responsibility to make sure you are not
\2 I want you to make a new repo on gitlab called \texttt{final-project} and
give me access
\2 We'll have a weekly report due every Friday on progress on your final
\2 For your benefit more than mine
\2 This is not the work for the week, it is your report on the work you did
this week
\2 Basic parts:
\3 What did you do in the last week: \textbf{be concrete}
\3 What are your current challenges
\3 What are you going to do to get past them
\3 What are your plans for the next week: \textbf{be concrete}
\2 I am going to compare what you said you would do last time with what you
say you will do this time, which is why I demand that you be concrete
\2 I will look at your repo to substantiate your report
\2 Capture all work in this repo---even if it's notes on things that didn't
\2 I will be more forgiving of a short report if you can show me evidence
of work that you did
\1 Interfaces between the pieces
\2 Get distributions of session sizes
\2 Set client conditions
\1 Reports from the site
\2 \textit{Notice any things in common?}
\2 \textit{Did anyone read any that didn't reproduce the results?}
\2 Many don't reproduce effects exactly, but reproduce the effects
\3 This is perfectly fine
\2 A few fail to reproduce the results, but not many
\2 I liked the explanations for why they chose the figures that they did
\1 Other grungy stuff
\2 Time synchronization
\2 Clients into traffic shaping pipes
\2 Calculating stats from packet streams
\1 Next step assignments
\2 Continue to divide up by same areas?
\2 Estimate of the amount of work to do
\1 Your own plans
\2 \textit{What are you excited about?}
\2 \textit{What's going to be hard?}
\2 \textit{What are the things you're worried about?}
\1 For next time
\2 I won't be here
\2 Guest lectures by Xing Lin and Weibin Sun
\2 Papers posted
\2 Form not required
\2 Do think actively about questions as you read the papers
\2 You are encouraged to suggest ways to improve the evaluations
\2 We'll talk about statistical distributions
\2 Read chapter 29
\2 Start working on your final project, you will need to report some
progress by Friday, and I expect a good plan for next week
