GE has launched the PEAZ-5565 Reflective Memory Analyzer. Designed to simplify and speed the identification and correction of errors in sophisticated distributed memory sharing applications, the PEAZ-5565 complements GE’s range of Reflective Memory solutions.
With event triggering, storage, and visualization options, the analyzer minimizes the time required to troubleshoot and optimize RFM networks. Coupled with support for Linux- or Windows-based applications and event triggers such as memory and address or range, data pattern, source ID, packet type and error conditions, the PEAZ-5565 allows developers to focus on systems performance.
The RFM Analyzer records malformed, corrupted and incomplete RFM packets, allowing an engineer a complete view of application issues to bring about a quicker resolution to problems. Local or remote monitoring is possible, meaning that problems can be identified and solved off-site.
Reflective Memory (RFM) can be used in any application that currently uses serial networks to connect computers or PLCs. Independent of node bus structure and operating system, and available in VMEbus, PCI, PCI Express and PMC form factors – allowing dissimilar buses to be connected in a single network – Reflective Memory allows every computer on a network to receive a copy of every other computer’s memory in microseconds. All simultaneous CPU write access to this common memory space is replicated to all nodes in the network. RFM transparently monitors and replicates data so that the application can share the data without software overhead penalties.
