SCADA Statistics Monitoring Using the Elastic Stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana)

October 20, 2017 - 00:00

The Industrial Controls and Safety systems group at CERN, in collaboration with other groups, has developed and currently maintains around 200 controls applications that include domains such as LHC magnet protection, cryogenics and electrical network supervision systems. Millions of value changes and alarms from many devices are archived to a centralised Oracle database but it is not easy to obtain high-level statistics from such an archive.
