YUM is a software package manager. It is a tool for installing, updating, and removing packages and their dependencies on RPM-based systems. It automatically computes dependencies and figures out what things should occur to install packages. It makes it easier to maintain groups of machines without having to manually update each one using rpm.
A paper titled "Performance footprints of heavy users in 3G networks via empirical measurement"will be presented at the 6th International workshop on Wireless Network Measurements (Winmee) 2010, Avignon, France, on May 31st. The paper was authored by Ernst Biersack (Eurecom), Alessio Botta (CINI), Antonio Pescapè (CINI), Stefan Rugel (o2), and Giorgio Ventre (CINI).
A paper on network monitoring and measurement will be presented at the IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications (ISCC) 2010, that will be held in Riccione (Italy), on June 22-25. The paper is authored by Giuseppe Aceto, Alessio Botta, Antonio Pescapè, Maurizio D’Arienzo (CINI).

Luigi Rizzo, Universita` di Pisa, presented a GoogleTechTalk, New Developments in Link Emulation and Packet Scheduling in FreeBSD, Linux, and Windows. In the talk he gives an overview of recent activity done at the Universita` di Pisa on link emulation and packet scheduling.
Rizzo covers two main topics:
A paper on the PlanetLab Europe measurement architecture will be presented at TridentCom 2010, 18-20 May 2010, Berlin, Germany.
The paper, "Measurement Architectures for Network Experiments with Disconnected Mobile Nodes", was authored by Jolyon White, Guillaume Jourjon, Thierry Rakotoarivelo, and Max Ott.
A paper on the PlanetLab Europe packet tracking architecture will be presented at TridentCom 2010, 18-20 May 2010, Berlin, Germany.
The paper, "Packet Tracking in PlanetLab Europe - A Use Case" was authored by Tanja Zseby, Christian Henke, and Michael Kleis.

Improvements in PlanetLab Europe have made choosing nodes easier. Users can select nodes for their experiments based on reliability, load, and autonomous system. MySlice, a project launched in the context of OneLab to assist users in choosing nodes that are appropriate for their needs. MySlice uses information provided by CoMon and Team Cymru. A user can now select nodes based on reliability, load, and autonomous system. Any user can add nodes to slices. This video explains the three stages in an experiment and how to add nodes to a slice.
