+<p>If your primary interest is in setting up the application
+alone, you need items 1-3 above and they can all be setup on a single
+system. If on the other hand, you would like to drive load against the
+application, you will need at least 2 systems. At higher loads, you may
+need multiple systems. At a minimum, we need to separate the SUT
+(System Under Test) components and the non-SUT components to get valid
+results. The non-SUT components are the Geocoder emulator and the
+workload driver. It is best to connect the driver machine to the SUT
+machine on a local private network. This ensures that latencies
+measured do not include arbitrary delays.</p>
+<p>For a horizontally scaled workload, or to measure the
+performance of the individual components, you can deploy the SUT
+components on separate physical or virtual machines. &nbsp;Keep in
+mind though that the
+bulk of cpu is spent in the application server component. <br>
+In the following sections, we'll go over the steps
+needed to configure each component :</p>

+<h2><a name="Extracting_the_Contents"></a>Extracting the Contents</h2>
+The Olio/Java kit is packaged as a gzipped tar file. The first task is
+to unzip the file and untar it to extract it's contents. Because of the
+long pathnames, please use gtar to extract. This is the default tar on
+Linux but on Solaris, use '/usr/sfw/bin/gtar'. This can be done as
+<font face="Courier New, monospace"><font style="font-size: 11pt;"
+ size="2">#
+tar -xvzf </font></font><font face="Courier New, monospace"><font
+ style="font-size: 11pt;" size="2"><i>olio-java-&lt;version&gt;</i>.tar.gz

+# </font></font><font face="Courier New, monospace"><font
+ style="font-size: 11pt;" size="2">gzcat <i>olio-java-&lt;version&gt;</i>.tar.gz
+| /usr/sfw/bin/gtar xvf - (on Solaris)</font></font><br>
+This will cause a directory named olio-java-&lt;version&gt; to be
+created whose contents should look like:<br>
+<code># ls olio-java-0.2*<br>
+LICENSE OlioDriver.jar RELEASE-NOTES-java-0.2.txt geocoder.war

+<h2><a name="setupDriver"></a>Setting up the Driver</h2>
+Even if you don't plan to drive load against the application, this
+setup is required as the database and file loaders are part of the
+workload driver&nbsp; - in this case feel free to install the driver on
+the same
+system as the web application.
+  <li>
+    <p align="left">See <a

+for Faban installation instructions. Note that faban needs to be
+installed on all the machines used for the benchmark.&nbsp; Please
+also read the <span style="font-style: italic;">Getting
+Started Guide</span> to get a high-level understanding of Faban
+terminology and how it works.&nbsp; From now on, we
+will refer to the faban install directory as $FABAN_HOME.</p>
+  </li>
+  <li>Install the required Faban services : <br>
+  </li>
+  <ul>
+    <li><code>cd $FABAN_HOME</code></li>
+    <li><code>cp
+services&nbsp; (if using Glassfish)<br>

+$FABAN_HOME/benchmarks directory. Also copy the OlioDriver.jar file to
+the $FABAN_HOME/benchmarks directory on the web server system.</li>
+  <br>
+  <li> For the driver to work, you will need
+JDK 1.6. Set JAVA_HOME to the path of the JDK in the faban user's
+environment. <br>

+<h2>Deploying the Web Application</h2>
+the $OLIO_HOME/webapp.war file to your
+Java EE 5 application server. &nbsp;
+If you are using GlassFish, you can do so by
+either dropping the war file in the
+$GLASSFISH_HOME/domains/domain1/autodeploy directory. &nbsp;You can
+deploy via different methods by referring to <a
+ href=""></a>.&nbsp;
+You must set the geocoderURL property to point to the URL where the
+geocoder is deployed. The default value for this property is
+http://localhost:8080/geocoder/geocode. Set
+'-DgeocoderURL="http://&lt;host&gt;:&lt;port&gt;/geocoder/geocode"' in
+the application server's configuration. For glassfish, you can do this
+by editing the domain.xml file (in domains/domain1/config/domain.xml).<br>
+NOTE: If you are deploying Olio to Oracle WebLogic Server 11g Release 1
+(10.3.1), there is a WebLogic bug (8448313) that results in a JPA

+<span style="font-family: monospace;">Internal Exception:
+This bug is&nbsp; related to loading classes before the weaver has a
+chance to execute that has been fixed in later editions and is
+available through support.&nbsp; <br>
+You can workaround the issue by build the web application yourself from
+the Olio source kit. See the documentation in the source kit for
+<h2><a name="installWebApp"></a><font size="4">Tuning Glassfish</font></h2>
+  <li>Go to the administration interface, eg. http://localhost:4848.</li>
+  <li>
+    <p>Ensure that you have the JVM option "-server" and the heap
+size has been adequately sized. &nbsp;For benchmarking purposes, we
+sized Xmx and Xms to 3G.</p>
+  </li>
+  <li>
+    <p>Start Glassfish. Check that you can connect to it from your
+browser (http://<i>host</i>:8080), but don't try to access
+any of the application pages yet !&nbsp;&nbsp;To do
+so :<br>
+    </p>
+    <ul>
+      <li>use $GLASSFISH_HOME/bin/asadmin start-domain domain1</li>

+<h2><a name="Setting_up_Caching"></a><font size="4">Setting up Caching</font></h2>
+For the Olio Java application, there are multiple caching options which
+are set by -D options in the appserver config file (For glassfish, this
+is in domains/domain1/config/domain.xml) :<br>
+  <li>No cache. This option is useful if you want to stress MySQL. In
+case, set <code>-DcacheOlio=false.</code></li>
+  <li><code></code> MapCache. This is the default and doesn't require
+any additional setting. It does a good job of off-loading the database.
+It is activated by the <code>cacheFactorClass=org.apache.olio.webapp.cache.SimpleMapCacheFactory</code>
+  </li>
+  <li>Memcache. In this case, the home page contents are cached in
+memcached. Set <code>-DcacheFactoryClass=org.apache.olio.webapp.cache.MemCachedFactory</code>
+and <code>-DmemcachedInstances=&lt;host&gt;:&lt;port&gt;</code>
+where &lt;host&gt;:&lt;port&gt; point to the memcached instance.
+&lt;port&gt; is 11211 if you use the default port when starting
+  </li>
+To use memcached, you will need to setup an instance of the server.
+This can typically run on the same system as the application server.
+  <li>Download and install memcached on the system you plan to
+use. </li>
+  <li>
+    <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;"><font size="3">Start the memcached

+<h2><font size="4">Setting up the Filestore</font></h2>
+<p><font size="3">Olio for Java EE can be configured to
+use either a local
+filesystem (typically NFS-mounted off a file server) or MogileFS for
+the object data. Our initial testing with
+MogileFS found some severe performance issues, so for now we advice
+using a normal filesystem. </font><font size="3">You
+will need about 50GB of
+space for the data, as the data does grow over runs</font>.
+&nbsp;Using a single spindle does work but may create performance
+bottlenecks. &nbsp;We recommend striping the filesystem across at
+least 3 spindles to avoid such bottlenecks. &nbsp;A local file system
+needs to be setup on the same machine as the web application. &nbsp;A
+network file system can reside on a separate server but needs to be
+and mounted on the system running the web application.</p>
+  <li>
+    <p><font size="3">Create a directory (or mount a
+filesystem) designated for storing the image and binary files. This
+directory is referred to as &lt;filestore&gt;. Any valid name
+for the OS should be fine. Ensure that everyone has read and write
+access to

+  <li>
+    <p>Select the Driver tab. </p>
+    <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;">Enter a Description for
+the run (say 'First test run' for this case). In general, the
+Description field is very useful to get a quick idea of what a
+particular run is testing. </p>
+    <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;">Enter the name of your
+driver(s) machine for Host (when using more than one machine, simply
+separate them by a space). </p>
+    <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;">Enter 10 for
+'Concurrent Users' (we want to start small).</p>
+    <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;">Enter 'vmstat 10' for
+Tools. This indicates the measurement tools that will be run on the
+driver machine. It's a good idea to keep an eye on the driver cpu
+    <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;">Now enter 30, 30, 10
+for the Ramp up, Steady State and Ramp down times. This is a very short
+test run. For normal runs, you may need a ramp up of 200 seconds and a
+steady state of at least 600 seconds during which measurements are made.</p>
+    <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;">For current systems,
+the time between client startup of 200 milliseconds is good enough.
+Some servers or slower systems may not be able to accept
+connections very frequently. In that case we may want to increase this
+value to 1000 milliseconds. <br>

+  <li>
+    <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;">Select the Web Server tab.<br>
+    <br>
+The Host:Port Pairs field takes the host
+port pairs where the web applications are running. The host and port is
+separated by a colon. Each pair is separated by space. &nbsp;Note that
+you cannot use the string "localhost" - you must specify a valid
+hostname or IP address.&nbsp; <br>
+    <br>
+In the tools box, enter the tools you
+want to run. Here are the
+tools we typically run : vmstat
+10; mpstat 10; nicstat 10; iostat -x 10.<br>
+    <br>
+For Application Server, select "GlassFish" or leave the field blank if
+you're using some other server. Only the GlassFish server is supported
+at this
+time - for other servers, you will have to manually start/stop the
+servers before and after a run. Then provide the application server's
+bin, log, and config
+directories. For Glassfish, faban will automatically capture the server
+config and log file and make it available via the 'Statistics' tab of a
+run. <br>
+    <br>
+The "restart" field indicates whether
+you want the Faban harness to automatically start and stop the
+GlassFish server before and after each run. &nbsp;By default, it is set
+to true which indicates that the Faban harness will restart the
+GlassFish server, assuming that the path information for the server is
+entered correctly.<br>

+  <li>
+    <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;">Select the Data Servers tab.</p>

+server, enter the Host name. Edit the hostname part in the JDBC
+Connection URL.&nbsp; Note that you cannot use the string
+"localhost" - you must specify a valid hostname or IP number. <br>
+This is used by the loader program to reload the
+database before a run. Set the 'Loader for Concurrent Users' to 25
+(this is the minimum number of users we can load for and is good for up
+to 25 concurrent users). You can set the loader to run a larger number
+so that you don't have to edit this field every time. It is not
+absolutely necessary to reload the database and files every time, but
+you should do so for all performance runs. In that case, set the reload
+fields to true every time.<br>
+    </p>
+    <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;">Set the Data Storage
+server. For local storage this is the same host as the application
+    <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;">Set the memcached
+server instances to the servers you've configured in web.xml of the web
+application. The driver harness will start the
+memcached server instances accordingly. Note that the memcached server
+instances are given as host:port pairs, separated by space. If a port
+is not given, the default memcached port of 11211 is assumed. &nbsp;<br>
