CERTI comes with two main executables: RTIA and RTIG.
If ones want to properly execute an HLA simulation using CERTI one must: (FIXME more detail to come).
CERTI uses a set of environment variables which may influence its execution behavior.
the CERTI installation base directory. This is used by the RTIG in order to look for FOM files (see RTIG).
machine on which RTIG is running. As soon as it starts the RTIA will try to connect to the RTIG running on CERTI_HOST (see RTIA).
TCP port used for RTIA/RTIG communications
UDP port used for RTIA/RTIG communications
System-wide HTTP proxy address used if CERTI_HTTP_PROXY is not defined.
if set, do not display service calls statistics
The CERTI RunTime Infrastructure Gateway (RTIG) is a process which coordinate the HLA simulation with CERTI, there should be at least one rtig process for each federation. However a single RTIG may be used for several federations. The command line usage of the RTIG is following:
The RTIG exchange messages with the RTIA in order to satify HLA request coming from the Federate. In particular RTIG is responsible for giving to the Federate (through its RTIA) the FOM file needed to create or join the federation. RTIG tries to open FOM file from different predefined places:.
The CERTI RunTime Infrastructure Ambassador (RTIA) is a process which is automatically launched by the federate as soon as its RTIambassador is created. The command line usage of the RTIA is following:
Open a windows command prompt and run the RTIG.
Open another windows command prompt and run the billard program.
