High-Bandwidth Tactical-Network Data Analysis in a High-Performance-Computing (HPC) Environment: Device Status Data

Abstract: Well-designed network traffic collection provides a wealth of information regarding what a network-centric system is doing. Analysis tools examine the data and readily help answer "what," but "why" and "how" may not be attainable, even with advanced analytics. Collecting device status information can augment network traffic information to help answer "why" and "how." To answer these questions, the Aberdeen Test Center developed an active device status collector and collaborated with the US Army Research Laboratory to develop a high-performance-computing solution for correlating device status data with network traffic data.
