Key Features

An invaluable tool both during installation and for on-going system operation.

Stand-alone Monitoring or Integrated Installation Tool

SPx Monitor can operate as a stand-alone monitoring tool or can be integrated into a multi-tiered installation, with data aggregated at different levels within the hierarchy. 


Configurable Monitoring & Reporting

Monitoring may range from a site consisting of one or more systems, down to the individual data streams from a given SPx application.

SPx Monitor reports on the items it finds within its scope and this scope may be the local machine, a site location or across the wider network of several sites. 

Full control is provided over the scope of both the monitoring and the reporting, allowing system integrators to configure the chain of command across the network. Each instance of SPx Monitor is told which applications and data streams to expect and it can then ensure that this matches with its observation.

Redundancy and Resilience

SPx Monitor is able to start and stop SPx applications running locally and can automatically start an application that is expected but is missing.  This capability makes SPx Monitor a crucial element for providing solution resilience.  

In redundant configurations, where dual radar trackers are used to provide high reliability, SPx Monitor allows oversight of which tracker is actively sending track data onto the network at any given time.  

Linux Support

SPx Monitor is also availble as a command line only application for Linux that supports of the other functionality provided by the Windows version.  A Web Interface providing a visual display of the local status is included for both Linux and Windows.

Discovery and Aggregation

SPx Monitor uses intelligent discovery processes to analyse the network, at a local or global level, for SPx-related items.  Discovered items are maintained within a database and these items are defined as:

  • Site - a geographic location hosting one of more systems
  • System - a host computer running one or more SPx applications
  • Application - an SPx application (e.g. SPx server, SPx Fusion Server, etc.)
  • Stream - an output data stream generated by and SPx application (e.g. radar video, tracks, plots, etc.)

Each instance of SPx Monitor may then be configured to report, locally or globally, on the items it has discovered.
