To test the DataCell, the distribution contains a simple event simulator. It generates a stream of MonetDB tuple values containing only random integers. Each tuple starts with a time stamp it has been created.
actuator simulator provides the following options:
actuator [options] --host=<host name>, default localhost --port=<portnr>, default 50600 --protocol=<name> either tcp/udp, default tcp --actuator=<actuator name> to identify the event received --server run as a server (default) --client run as a client --events=<number> number of events to receive --statistics=<number> show statistics after a series of events
