  1. The first step is to open a terminal or command prompt. For instructions on doing this in Windows, click here. If you are using a Mac, you will need to open the "Terminal" application, which can be found under /Applications/Utilities.
  2. Next navigate to the folder where you saved the SyncRate driver jar and configuration file. Do this by typing "cd", followed by a space, followed by the directory name where you stored these files. For example, on a Windows system, you might type something like "cd C:\Users\bob\Desktop\syncrate". On a Mac, you might type something like "cd /home/bob/syncrate". After you type this command, hit Enter.
  3. Now to actually run the SyncRate tool, type: "java -jar syncrate-2.2.12-driver.jar test1" and hit Enter.
    1. The SyncRate command requires two parameters. In this case, we're using the values "test1" and "".
      1. The first parameter ("test1" in this example) is the name of the current run. Each run of the SyncRate tool must have a unique name. If the same name is used twice, the transfer rates for the second run will be inaccurate.
      2. Assuming that you have not change the name of the configuration file (and it's in the same directory as the driver jar) you shouldn't need to change the second parameter, though feel free to change the values in the configuration file to run further tests.
