University paper in Network Management. Each student (hopefully max
class size will be 15) will manage a virtual network each. Each virtual
network will have about 6 (max) nodes, but I'll try to chop this to 3
max by combining some services on the same virtual machine. Each virtual
network has a virtual (daemon) switch.
Each virtual machine has one window/screen for the console messages, and
three (I reduced them from the usual 6) TTYs.
So, at max, 15 students * ( ( 3 TTYs + 1 console ) * 5 machines + 1
switch ) = 315
Hmmmm, I think I've goofed somewhere. This isn't even close to 4000.
