Node Management

The Operations staff at PlanetLab Europe remotely maintains and administers your nodes. There is usually no need for you to become involved in day-to-day maintenance, although you may occasionally be asked to reboot or repair your nodes.

Because your site owns the nodes and their connectivity, however, you can exert some control over their operation. In particular, you may restrict the outbound bandwidth of your nodes, login to a restricted administrative account on the nodes, and switch the nodes into an administrative debug state.
