How to configure the agent and the SeD to use a scheduler module

On the agent side, the parameter schedulerModule has to be set to the path of the module scheduler (in the agent configuration file). This option uses the same syntax than the other agents and ORB options:
schedulerModule = path to module
On the SeD side, the developer has to choose DIET_AGG_USER as aggregator:

diet_aggregator_desc_t *agg;

profile = diet_profile_desc_alloc("serviceName", ...);
diet_generic_desc_set(diet_param_desc(profile, 0), ...);
agg = diet_profile_desc_aggregator(profile); 
diet_aggregator_set_type(agg, DIET_AGG_USER);

diet_service_table_add(profile, ...);
Usually, the developer should define a performance metric function to communicate with the agent scheduler. For example, if the scheduler uses the number of waiting jobs in the FIFO queue, the performance metric could be:
void metric(diet_profile_t * profile, estVector_t values) {
This metric just fixes the number of waiting jobs in the FIFO queue of the SeD . Now, at the agent side, the scheduler can use this value to aggregate, sort and filter the SeD s responses. More details are given in the following section about how to use the SeD s plugin schedulers to communicate with the agent scheduler module.
