mPlane is officially over - but we'll be still alive!

After three years of work, 25+ Deliverables, 120+ papers, 45+ open source software tools, 7 patents, 3 RFCs, 2 PhD Schools, and an endless list of presentations and public talk, mPlane is over. We all enjoyed working with brilliant people, having open discussions, and sleepless nights to finalise a document and fix a bug.

Thanks to everybody for the fun in working together. Keep follwing us... but let us celebrate now :)

mPlane SDK tutorial at METRICS Bootcamp 2014

From Monday August 25th, 2014 to September 5th, 2014 at Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium was held the METRICS Bootcamp 2014. mPlaners were invited to give tutorials.

mPlane at the European Conference on Networks and Communications (EuCNC 2015

mPlane has been present as exhibitor at the European Conference on Networks and Communications (EuCNC 2015), in Paris.

This was a great event: many people came to our boot, to get the chance to see our live demos, grab a flyer, talk to our experts, get in touch with the mPlane community and adopt our technology. If you missed the event, dont worry: keep reading and try our online demos, or watch the videos from the YouTube mPlane channel!

mPlane SDK for Python 3 released

The mPlane Software Development Kit for Python 3 is now available from the Python Package Index. From any reasonable Python 3 installation, you can now simply type:

$ pip install mplane-sdk

(note that you may need to be root to do this, depending on your Python configuration).

To learn more about the SDK, start with the README file

Developing new components with the SDK is relatively straightforward: you simply have to wrap the code performing your measurement or query in an instance of mplane.model.Service, define capabilities to describe the specifications that code implements, and create a configuration file pointing at this Service, defining the certificate identifying the component and configuring access control. Then start the component runtime by running:

$ mpcom --config <path-to-config-file>

On the Rationale for the mPlane Measurement Architecture

mPlane is architected around three principles, derived from the challenges presented by the distributed, multiscalar, heterogenous environment in which it must operate: schema-centric measurement definition, explicit iterative measurement support, and weak imperativeness.

Why We Developed DBStream

Systems for processing network monitoring data need to offer high performance and usability. We think the Open Source system DBStream offers both.
