The revived Plab interface is here!
Lots of updates to the plab backend, including improved plab <-> elab node id translation and update handling. Includes support for the current PLC API, and the new pl_conf node manager interface API. Several more db library routines were ported from the perl library to the python one to support the new code (mostly the node_id tracking stuff). Fixes to the client side and also a rootball creation cleanup (binaries removed from the CVS repo). There are also enhancements to the experiment view page for experiments including plab nodes: site and widearea hostname are now displayed along with the other node information. Note that the way setup timeout for vnodes is calculated has been changed a bit. Instead of using a hardwired base timeout, the base timeout is now based on the reload_waittime database field, which comes from the 'OS' (e.g., FBSD-JAIL, RHL-PLAB) the vnode runs. The default max duration for a plab slice created through the plab_ez interface is set to 1 year, and linktest is currently disabled and hidden through the ez interface. There is still work to do, but this checkin brings with it a functional plab portal!
