Big NorNet Research Node Upgrade

Today, a major upgrade of the PLC-managed research nodes has been started. While the former installation was still based on the old Fedora Core 18 (F18) Linux distribution, the upgrade brings lots of new possibilities:

  • State-of-the-art Fedora Core 23 (F23) Linux distribution
  • Linux Kernel version 4.1.10
  • Linux MPTCP version 0.90.1, including per-socket configurability
  • All available congestion control modules for TCP and MPTCP provided
  • The latest version of NetPerfMeter preinstalled into the slivers

While most nodes have already upgraded to F23, a few ones are currently still on F18. They will upgrade shortly.
