Real-Time Data Storage

In many industrial fields, Big Data has become increasingly important. Numerous applications already benefit from the every growing data quantities and some are made possible to begin with through them. Especially in fields such as measurement and test technologies, these data can be utilized effectively in order to generate high-precision results and evaluations.

Besides the capturing of data, such as from industrial cameras, storage is a crucial element for their efficent use. For this, data sets not only require to be written on storage mediums without loss at high throughput rates, they often also need to be fetched at the same speed. Built on the Storage Module this field of development at Kithara focuses specifically on the storaging of data in real time in order to ensure their profitable implementation into demanding projects.


Real-time data storage with the modular system of Kithara RealTime Suite consists of the following components::

存储模块

通过固态硬盘进行实时数据存储

  • 普通
  • 特征
  • 硬件支持

存储模块通过SSD引入具有最新容量的实时数据存储。这样,通过NVMe接口,可以以超过2 Gbyte/s的读写速度写入和读取大量数据。 UDF作为数据系统提供,也允许数据包写入。

  • 通过具有最新容量的NVMe SSD实时存储数据
  • 高速读写速度超过2 Gbyte/s
  • UDF数据系统

关于存储模块,可以使用与NVMe规范1.0兼容的所有存储设备。经过测试的设备:

  • Intel Solid-State Drive P3700/P3600/P3520/750 Series
  • Intel Solid-State Drive DC P3520 Series

PCAPng Module

Real-time data storage in PCAPng format

  • Common
  • Features
  • Supported Hardware

The PCAPng Module allows for real-time data storage of complex hierarchically structured measurement data in PCAPng format. PCAP Next Generation (PCAPng) is a Wireshark-supported data format for capturing data packets within networks. This way, Wireshark is used for the later analysis of stored measurement data.

  • Real-time data storage in PCAPng format
  • Wireshark used for reading stored data sets such as measurement data or even image data
  • Based on Storage Module

MDF Module

Real-time data storage in MDF

  • Common
  • Features
  • Supported Hardware

The MDF Module allows for real-time data storage of complex hierarchically structured measurement data in Measurement Data Format. MDF 4.1 is a binary file format provided by ASAM for the evaluation or long-term storage of recorded and calculated data sets. The file size depends solely on the used hardware (meaning up to terrabyte range).
