Hey Folks,

The current extended json login message is now just looks like this right:

“msg”: “v3.5.5”,
“tests”: “54"

There’s a MultiplePorts branch that is doing multiple streams, along with
interval snapshots and some other features. Given that the new tests accept
test parameters (e.g. “c2s duration”, “snapshot delay”, etc), my thought is
to change the extended login message some:

“msg”: “v3.5.5”,
“requested_tests”: {
“2”: { # TEST_C2S
“duration”: 15,
“streams”: 5
“4”: { # TEST_S2C
“duration”: 10,
“streams”: 1
“16”: {}, # requesting the TEST_STATUS test
“32”: {}, # requesting the TEST_META test

If a client requested an unknown test argument, then the server would deny
the request. Assuming the client doesn’t care about the extended parameters,
it could just send the old request style, or it could send the new request
style with no requested options. Existing servers would simply deny the test
since there’s no “test” option included.

What do folks think?
