Design

At a high level, the monitoring system consists of:

  • A monitoring client running on each Research Device.
  • A monitoring server, located in the CONFINE Controller that provides centralised data gathering and a processing infrastructure.
  • A display facility to visualise the monitored metrics.

Figure 1 shows an overview of the communication model used by the CONFINE Monitor. The monitoring system designed follows a Receiver-Pull Model where the monitoring server pulls the monitored information from the research devices. The client daemon on each RD actively monitors certain system specific metrics periodically.The information monitored by the clients is pulled periodically (every 5 minutes) by the server through a parallel request sent to all CONFINE RDs.
