Version 4.0 released

Today, we have released a new version of ToMaTo: 4.0. The most notable changes are:

  • Drastically improved response times and overall speed by distributing the backend over different services
  • Now using a more reliable tamplate distribution strategy across hosts
  • Switches now use VpnCloud by default

The upgrade should not have affected running experiments. We hope that the upgrade process went smoothly, and that you can now use ToMaTo with improved response times. If you run into any issues with the new version, please let us know.

Version 4.0 update ahead

On the 18th of July we will update ToMaTo to version 4.0. This new version focuses on stability and performance.

On that day and maybe during the next few days, ToMaTo might not or only partly reachable. We work hard to make the update as smooth as possible. Experiments should continue to run during that but might be temporarily inaccessible. There should be no data loss because of the update, however we urge users to backup any important data (using the “topology export” and “image download” features).

Version 3.6 released

Today we released version 3.6 of ToMaTo. This new version contains among minor bugfixes and improvements the following major changes:

  • New database in backend: MongoDB, this should resolve many problems and increase performance
  • New design in web-interface and updated Jquery
  • Updated templates

As this was a huge change, we are currently working on some remaining issues including performance issues, they should be resolved shortly. Please report bugs and feature requests on the Github issue tracker or via mail to support@tomato-lab.org

Version 3.5 released

Today we released version 3.5 of ToMaTo. This new version contains among minor bugfixes and improvements the following major changes:

  • Error dump management
  • Faster backend/hostmanager interface based on SSL and JSON-RPC
  • More robust KVM library

Please report bugs and feature requests on the Github issue tracker or via mail to support@tomato-lab.org

New Site: TU Darmstadt

Today we welcome the University of Darmstadt in Germany as a new site in ToMaTo. The University of Darmstadt is a major partner in the German-Lab project and is now up and running with 28 nodes in ToMaTo. Those nodes can be accessed by all users from now on by selecting the respective site. The new site can also be seen in the sites map. The total node count in ToMaTo is now 122.
