# How to "Smoke Test" the new technology agent controller

Our intent is to help someone who finds that they need to "smoke test" the new technology agent controller for the first time. It is not our intent to stifle creativity or define "the one true way"... we're merely trying to document one way that works. In reality, our best bug finds have come when we had someone new "do it their way".

## Download the agntctrl and sdk packages for each given system, create subdirectories for holding the release packages, and unzip them there.

There is some debate about whether to overlay the runtime and sdk packages or keep them separate. My fear with overlaying is that you're likely to miss any error in either package if it is masked by the other. Therefore, I put the agntctrl package in <ac> and the sdk package in <sdk>.

## Set up environment variables.

{At the Linux shell, or in a CygWin window for Windows}
1. cd <ac>/lib; export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=pwd:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH {Linux only} 2. cd <ac>/bin; export PATH=pwd:$PATH
