Abstract
Operational availability of Navy systems has become a function of mechanical, electronic, computer, software, and network systems availability. Further, the challenge of maintaining operational availability will grow to enterprise scale as the Navy moves towards tactical cloud computing that automates information sharing and command and control services. However, in todays distributed computing environment, no current system provides adequate performance and condition monitoring that allows operators and support personnel to detect, predict, and respond to emergent conditions that can degrade operational availability. A system is needed that monitors operational systems, integrates observed performance measures, predicts system availability, and alerts operators and support personnel of future threats to mission readiness. In response to this need, Charles River Analytics proposes a Distributed Analysis Tool for Enterprise Monitoring (DATEM). DATEM will build on our experience providing innovative data collection technologies for the Office of Naval Researchs (ONR) annual Limited Technical Experiment. We support ONR by monitoring and analyzing distributed systems (hardware, software, and services) and network traffic. We propose to develop condition-based metrics for naval system effectiveness, operator performance, and system availability. DATEM will provide a framework for integrating observed performance measures, extracting performance metrics, and predicting future availability.
