Net2WG/Notes/200802015 Meeting Notes
* TEP 118 * DIP Testing * TTX projects
* Razvan, JHU * Arsalan, Berkeley * Om, USC * Kaisen, UCSD * Phil, Stanford
* Send slides to Om
* 3 comment classes: interfaces, speed, and description
* Om: I did one three node test, and one thing was not clear to me. What is the difference between total items and new items? * Kaisen: New items describes how many are new, total describes how many items there are. So new is a subset of total. * Om: OK, it was not obvious to me. I was able to follow the directions and test on two nodes, and everything worked. * Kaisen: OK, I also want to add a tool that will update it, like an injector. So the idea is that you have a base station that can send out an update. Rather than a set node. * Om: What is DIPTestMaster? * Kaisen: Well, I generate a source file from the description of the test you want to write. * Om: I haven't tried it, but I should be able to switch the flags, and it should work for either DIP or Drip? * Kaisen: In theory, yes. Let me check and get back to you. * Phil: Going forward, it can be nice to let people know about net2 by putting the path in the paper title. * Om: Having a sequence number on the serial packets would be nice. * Kaisen: Right -- there's the counter for how many items have updated. * Om: OK, good, I tend to lose some serial messages on the testbed. Was this confusing just to me? * Phil: I'm sure a sentence or two could clear it up.
* Om: Did people get my mail asking for slides? * Razvan: Yes. * Kaisen: Yes. * Om: So let me talk about stuff we don't hear too much about. Zigbee, 6lowpan, and TYMO. * Om: Let's start with TYMO. Romain has been sending me code and documents. I told him the key thing is having a test case or app. Romain wants to call in soon. * Om: Zigbee and 6lowpan are both making progress. * Om: So one other protocol: LQI. There's a bug in there that I found, where you turn off the radio and LQI locks. Phil said he'd fix it. * Om: One last thing: Matt Welsh is willing to let us do long-term experiments on Motelab. * Phil: That's great. One thing about Motelab. Nodes tend to come and go a little, so it's very hard to do repeated experiments. But for our purposes, we're testing, so this is not an issue. * Kaisen: What about the serial interface? Is it 2.x compatible, or do you need the 1.x hack? * Phil: In theory 2.x should work, but in practice I know Jung Il just uses the 1.x hack. * Om: Razvan is also running CTP tests on his testbed. * Razvan: Last time I ran, the maximum hopcount was 3. * Om: OK, send your slides, when you get a chance?
