PlanetLab Automatic Control System
Blekinge Institute of Technology, School of Computing2010 (English)Conference paper (Refereed) Published
PlanetLab provides a global scale environment for network research. It consists of numerous controllable computer nodes. However, due to that these nodes are deployed in various network domains, there exist experimental issues, regarding network latency, resource utilization, and unpredictable behaviors of nodes. Experimenters need to pay much attention to manually adjusting their selected nodes during the whole experimental process. PLACS is a novel tool system based on PlanetLab, and composed of node selection node management. It can intelligently and automatically coordinate the involved elements, including PlanetLab nodes, experimental programs and experimenter requirements. In this article, the corresponding mechanism functionalities and implementation designs for development are presented.
