- Back to APEL/SSM
This page is for people who were testing the SSM version 1 package. If you are beginning testing now, please use SSM version 2.
No longer used. Use GGUS or contact apel-admins [at] stfc.ac.uk for assistance.
There are detailed instructions for installing the latest version of the SSM here: APEL/SSMInstallation.
Let us know using the mailing list if you are going to send us some messages, and we can tell you whether they arrive and whether they are valid.
If you would like to send us messages using the new APEL message format, we can let you know whether they are accepted by the database. The message format is described on this page: APEL/MessageFormat.
To monitor more closely what your SSM is doing, you can look at the ssm.log file (the default location is
/var/log/apel/ssm.log). However, we know that this file can be a bit cryptic.
