LVC21F-111 Fleet Monitoring Solutions for IoT

Session Abstract

Level: Intermediate Today's connected device fleets are getting larger and the ability to monitor individual devices within a fleet is required for troubleshooting, optimization, and general fleet maintenance. With the ubiquity of network connectivity, we can set up fleet monitoring using a cloud-based solution, allowing for a single dashboard to view and monitor your fleet. In this talk, we will present a general overview of fleet monitoring architectures as well as several software packages that can be used to implement them. We will compare and contrast several options for both the client-side and the server-side software. We will also prepare a reference implementation using Yocto that can be implemented in custom builds, paired with a cloud-based fleet monitoring web interface.
