The following tutorials are an overview of the PlanetLab Europe system. For information about hosting a tutorial at your site, contact PlanetLab Europe Tutorials.
Elliot Jaffe (HUJI) presented a specially developed PlanetLab tutorial at the FIREweek event in Paris, September 2008. It provided an opportunity to walk through every stage for PLE testbed, from creating an account through running experiments. It demonstrated the usefulness of PlanetLab Europe for those interested in testing applications and protocols in a real-world setting, with actual network latency, bandwidth, and failure modes.
The tutorial is available on the FIREWorks site.
