A video tutorial for Principal Investigators is available on How to Enable Users. The short video is a step by step guide to getting new researchers enabled on your PLE site. The video also provides a short overview of some of the Principal Investigator's responsibilities.
PlanetStats, the monitoring site for PlanetLab Europe is now available. PlanetStats monitors user activity on PlanetLab Europe. It creates aggregate data on a daily basis for activity on PlanetLab Europe. PlanetStats provides graphs and reports on PLE activity including information on nodes, slices, CPU usage and in-going and out-going network bandwidth.
Here is a live report showing PlanetLab Europe Slices active over the past seven days, among other information.
A new video overview of the OneLab project and PlanetLab Europe is available. Prof Scott Kirkpatrick (HUJI) explains the scope of the OneLab project large-scale distributed network testbed.
PlanetLab has released a new version of MyPLC. The new version represents a major upgrade from version 4.2 MyPLC version 4.3 was codeveloped by Princeton and the OneLab project.
Improvements with the upgrade include an entirely reworked user interface and a more flexible data model. The API is not 100% backward compatible but brings new generic features for handling heterogeneous types of resources like nodes and interfaces.
The Everstats service is up and running again. The package collects slicestat data from PLE nodes and maintains it in aggregate form in a local database.
The Everstats system is live and public.
A new video tutorial is available. This tutorial covers the general issues about SSH Keys and PlanetLab, but is geared for Mac and UNIX users.
