The AFDX Server can read and write AFDX data from two Ethernet interfaces and make it available to the AFDX Explorer or other applications via the internal TCP/IP based interface. Due to the separation of AFDX Server and AFDX Explorer it is possible that they run on separate computers and exchange data via the Ethernet network.
AFDX Servers can be installed e.g. in laboratories and accessed via a remote AFDX Explorer that is installed in the office, for example.The AFDX Server only sends the data requested (monitored) by the AFDX Explorer over the network, thus the network load is kept as low as possible.
The AFDX Server has a GUI for configuration and control. One display shows all received AFDX data (virtual link ID and message ID) providing the user with a quick overview about received AFDX data. Furthermore statistics and logs are aviable for sent and received data.
The following areas are available here:
- AFDX Server configuration
- AFDX Server data monitoring
- AFDX Server statistics
- AFDX Explorer statistics
- Display of the log files from the AFDX Server and the AFDX Explorer
Transmission of AFDX data is possible via the AFDX Explorer.
Thus, missing systems can be simulated with the AFDX Explorer and the AFDX Server.
