What this tool
The AAR tool logs all messages exchanged between the solutions, legacy systems and simulators connected test-bed technical infrastructure and by components within the infrastructure (e.g. observations inputted via the observer support tool), with the purpose to enable a later analysis of the data exchanged during the trial. Apart from being used for a post-analysis, it is also used during a trial execution to monitor the amount and kind of data exchange, in order to check whether all data exchanges are correctly functioning, to check whether the correct data is exchanged at the correct moment during scenario execution and to check whether observations are being stored.
The detailed logging of all formats, sources and destinations, all marked with time-stamps, allows the technical staff to sort, filter and inspect the messages. The output of the message logging can be viewed on a list, on a timeline or as a sequence diagram. This enables several options for a visual analysis about which components have exchanged which data with each other.
