You can use the various programs in the NETSOLVE_DIR\testing directory to test your NetSolve installation. Remember that a valid NetSolve agent and server should already be running, and the required problems should be installed on the servers. Here is a list of test programs and the problems they make use of:
chartest, doubletest, inttest, stringlisttest, stringtest, totaltest
mpass, vpass, pass, multipass
For example, to perform a sample run of c_test, the user must do the following:
Use setagent to point to the correct agent host. ( e.g. setagent netsolve.cs.utk.edu )
Run c_test.exe from the testing directory.
A user new to Netsolve will find the Matlab interface very simple. The matlab interface is in NETSOLVE_DIR\matlab. To access the interface
Start up Matlab
Click on File -> Set Path ...
Add the NETSOLVE_DIR\matlab directory to the path
The interface consists of 4 NetSolve calls
Testing NetSolve within Matlab involves the following steps:
This command prints the agent and servers currently available.
This command prints the list of problems that can be solved.
There are various tools in the NETSOLVE_DIR\tools directory that allow the user to explore the NetSolve metacomputing system.
