comment stdout is empty
Try it like CellProfiler ... > test.txt 2>&1, maybe it's outputting to stderr. (See this for the ordering)

This mailing list thread (and the linked answer by jpetazzo) could provide some insight.

No need to use install media, there're several docker containers of older Ubuntu releases in the registry.

comment How to set the tab name to an alias hostname of the remote host I'm connected to?
It's probably not quite what you want but it might be worth a look: Try curl http://169.254.169.254/latest/meta-data/public-hostname from inside the VM and see if this value is better suited for a tab name then what hostname gets you. (More about metadata)

comment How to copy a public key to your server
Maybe a piece to the puzzle: You usually have your public key served to your VM via metadata service, and grabbed and put into place by something like cloudinit.

comment Docker: How to get image size?
Not a general answer, but looking at the way the stackbrew ubuntu images are built, you can guess a lower bound to the image size from the used tarballs. (For predictable bandwidth usage, you might just build the images yourself -- you'd then know how much is downloaded, i.e. just the tarball itself.)

comment AiX topas snapshot to web
Note the apache in your PHP script output. The script is not run as root -- which is good, but may affect the way topas works. Try sudo -u apache bash myscript.sh for comparison (if sudo is available to you).

If you find yourself awking XML quite often, there's special tools for that, for example XMLgawk.
