How to analyze discovery network burden and delays?

Yo, all,

I'm trying to determine the bandwidth consumption of the discovery (and liveliness) process and any delays that might be caused by it. Are there any tools for analyzing this?

I tried using Admin Console, but no matter what I fiddled with, I couldn't see the traffic on any of the built-in topics used for distributing discovery and liveliness messages (participant DATA, etc.).

Is there something I'm missing?

advThanksance,

---Jason

Hey Jason,

 

In measuring bandwidth consumption of the discovery I would recommend using network monitoring utilities on your various servers / workstations.

DDS uses RTPS as its wire protocol and many tools nowadays have support for identifying discovery messages.

The issue is that you will have to sum up the results you'll be getting from various endpoints.

Hopefully this helps,

Roy.
