Title: SysMon – A framework for monitoring and measuring real-time properties
Subject: Computer Science
Level: Advanced
Description: The real-time properties of systems are hard to measure and test especially in the long run, e.g. monitoring a system for months out in the real environment. The company has started developing their own tool for monitoring timing requirements, but they needed to measure more properties than time and in a more dynamic way than the tool is constructed today. The tool must be able to measure different kind of data and be able to be monitor as long as the system itself.

This thesis first does a survey and evaluation on existing commercial tools and if there exists a tool that can be integrated to the system and fulfill all demands. Different trace recorders and system monitoring tools are presented with its properties and functions. The conclusion is that there is no such tool and the best solution is to integrate a system trace recorder together with a new tool.

The result is SysMon, a dynamic generic framework for measuring any type of data within a real-time system. The main focus for measuring during this thesis is time measurements, but no limits or assumptions of data types are made, and during late steps of the development new types of measurements are integrated. SysMon can also handle limits for measurements and, if required, take pre-defined actions e.g. triggering the third party trace recorder and saving all information about the measurement that passed the limit.
