Abstract:

The radio performance monitor radmon is a program for monitoring and analyzing the performance of the SINCGARS radio simulation for SIMNET. Radmon monitors traffic on the simulation network and records information broadcast by the SINCGARS radio simulator hosts concerning every important state change of every simulated radio. For example, when the channel selection knob on a radio is turned to different channel, the SINCGARS radio simulator broadcasts a Transmitter PDU giving the new frequency selection for that radio. Radmon receives the transmission and records which radio changed state, the nature of the change, and the time at which the change occurred. Radmon maintains a running history of these state changes for each radio. The information the random records can be saved in a file and subsequently restored from that file. Radmon allows the user to browse through the recorded data to examine interactions in detail. The recorded data can also be summarized to show channel utilization, radio utilization, and other statistics of radio activity. The collected information can be presented in several ways. A stripchart display shows the activity of radios as a function of time. A connectivity map shows the communication paths that are usable. A status display shows the detailed state of individual radios. Author
