Captures data from virtual or bare-metal computer systems
With SOCKREC, it is simple to listen and capture network data coming from one or many devices or applications, using different communication protocols like UDP or TCP.
The recorder can receive any type of data, from various devices like weather, air quality or other industrial equipment to ICT computer systems and enterprise applications.
The recorder can listen to one or many TCP ports, waiting for data from different devices or applications, without blocking the communication process.
For installations that require fewer network resources, SOCKREC can listen and wait for UDP data, from any type of computer systems, industrial equipments or smart sensors.
The recorder, SOCKREC, is part of open-source data recording package and our gateway product. You can download the package, or buy our products and services to use it.
All settings are defined under a JSON based configuration file, sockrec.json. Here you can define what equipment and network settings the recorder will use to capture data from.
Under sockrec.json, you can setup one or many listeners to wait for data from the network. A listener contains all needed information, port, host protocol and what metrics to process.
You can use the data recorder interactively or continuously for data analysis and visualisation. The recorder is implemented as a CLI utility for various operating systems.
Capture and consolidate data from one or many Vaisala WXT53x sensors, using TCP or UDP network protocols. Fast, open-source software, zero administration.
Centralize SYSLOG data from different UNIX or Linux computer systems over network using UDP protocol. No need for other complex and expensive software packages.
