A Quick Overview¶
Gumby is an experiment runner framework to run local and distributed experiments.
The interaction between the researcher and the gumby framework can be presented als follows:
Prior to installing Gumby install the required dependencies for basic tests. Those are the software packages: python-psutil python-configobj r-base
The way to install packages is specific for your Linux installation. As an example on the Ubuntu or Debian based systems you may use:
$ sudo apt-get install python-psutil python-configobj r-base
These dependencies can also be installed using the pip utility. Please note that more elaborate experiments might require additional dependencies.
Next, clone the Gumby repository from GitHub by running the following command:
$ git clone https://github.com/tribler/gumby
In the Tutorials section you will find information on how to create your first Gumby experiment.
