Mailserver load generation failed for ExampleVM
« on: November 18, 2016, 06:14:09 PM »
Trying to follow the load generation steps for a mailserver example VM.
    nohup ./run_load_gen.sh
    ./run_init.sh

What does the following error indicate?

Please check and confirm that your webserver (dovecot) is up and running. Also, disable selinux and iptables service.

Please attach the full output of the load generation if you still see the errors.

Did you ever get the mailstore loaded? Did you find any errors in Clientmgr1_1094.out?

Hi
Sorry for the late reply.
There is no error or fail message in Clientmgr1_1094.out.
How to check the mailstore loaded? any script or command?
Thanks.

Miles, there's a problem with the run_load_gen.sh script. On the mailserver VM please edit /opt/SPECimap/run_load_gen.sh so that it contains this:

chown -R 777 /mailstore/dovecot
java -jar -mx1500m -ms1500m specimapclient.jar -p 1200


Then try again:

# nohup ./run_load_gen.sh &

Check that the specimapclient.jar is running in the background:

# ps -ef|grep specimap
root      7733  7731  0 13:03 pts/0    00:00:01 java -jar -mx1500m -ms1500m specimapclient.jar -p 1200


If it's not, the next commands don't work so let me know. If you see the process running, then issue:

# ./run_init.sh

To watch progress, ssh into the mailserver VM from another window and:

# tail -f /opt/SPECimap/nohup.out

This should take about an hour depending on your configuration.

What's the version of Java? What's the CentOS version?

Miles,

Can you verify that your IMAP mailserver is actually up and accepting connections by using telnet from the client:

# telnet mailserver1 143

..This should connect to port 143 and display a message like:
* OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4rev1 LITERAL+ SASL-IR LOGIN-REFERRALS ID ENABLE STARTTLS AUTH=PLAIN] Dovecot ready.

Now, at the dovecot "prompt", try entering:
a login "test1" "test1"

You should get an "a OK Logged in." reply

then try:
b select INBOX

Please let us know if those steps work, or if not what the errors are.

Hi
After umount mailstore and re-run makeme_mailserver.sh, my mailserver is working now.

# telnet mailserver1 143

..This should connect to port 143 and display a message like:
* OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4rev1 LITERAL+ SASL-IR LOGIN-REFERRALS ID ENABLE STARTTLS AUTH=PLAIN] Dovecot ready.

  It works in this step.

 "at the dovecot "prompt" means prompt in mailserver?

OK! If the mailstore load ran correctly, the /mailstore file system should be 50% full. Follow the guide to warm up the mailstore then back it up.
