OLFS provides a secure, automated method for the collection of performance data from an Owl data diode. The performance information generated by any OPDS or OCDS data diode products is captured from both the Send and Receive sides and is transmitted to a remote server for use with a monitoring and management tool like the Owl OPMS or a third party tool like HP’s Openview. Individual transfer applications (i.e. file transfers vs. video streams) operating on the Owl data diodes, along with overall system activities, can be tracked, examined and performance levels checked.
Software components are activated on both the Send and Receive side of the Owl data diode solution, which capture system performance and health information including logs, transfer activity, error conditions and keyword notifications. This information is then encrypted and sent to the remote server where it is decrypted and formatted for use by network managers.
