The Scout kernel module provides non-priviledged users access to a restricted form of raw IP datagram sockets on PlanetLab. Additionally, it tracks per-slice network usage and allows ports to be reserved on a node for the exclusive use of a particular slice. This document describes the safe raw socket interface, as well as the accounting and port management features of the module.
