1. Execute make first. This will result in a netlinkKernel.ko output among many others.
2. Execute $ gcc netlinkUser.c -o netlinkUser
3. Insert kernel module by :$ sudo insmod netlinkKernel.ko
4. Run ./netlinkUser to see message and run dmesg to see debug messages
5. Remove module by : $ sudo rmmod netlinkKernel
6. Finally make clean to remove output files.

Toward a method of testing Gluster RDMA with regular ethernet NICs, for the hardware-challenged. For now, I have the installing soft-iwarp on Fedora 18 part down (I think). Up next, the getting it to work with Gluster RDMA part...

Testing Gluster RDMA with Soft-iWARP

There’s a Gluster 3.4 RDMA test day right around the corner, and I want to join in on the fun. The trouble is, I don’t have any RDMA-capable hardware in my lab right now. Undaunted, I hit the Web in search of a software-based solution, one that would at least allow me to run through the tests.

I found a pair of promising-looking options:

The information out on the web about these projects is a bit thinner than I’d like, but I found a blog post howto on installing Soft-iWARP on Ubuntu 10.10 and another for Debian 6 and figured I’d try it out on Fedora 18.

Had to revert the TDB_MUTEX_LOCKING code since that doesn't support transactions, and all of the other tests are transactional.

This bash script offers quick shortcuts to simulate slower network connections. It is useful when you need to simulate a wireless network on a Linux network server, especially when you are using a virtual machine guest on your local machine or in the cloud.

slow 3G                   # Slow network on default eth0 down to 3G wireless speeds
slow reset                # Reset connection for default eth0 to normal
slow vsat --latency=500ms # Simulate satellite internet  with a high latency
slow dsl -b 1mbps         # Simulate DSL with a slower speed than the default
slow modem-56k -d eth0    # Simulate a 56k modem on the eth1 device. eth0 is unchanged.
