Abstract
We propose Get All The Data (GATD), a data collection and dissemination system for the Swarm. GATD offers a flexible architecture to connect arbitrary producers of data and consumers of events. Too many sensor networks are fragile, vertical silos, with a series of one-off handlers writ- ten to shuttle data, manipulate it, process it, and present it. Instead of being mired in details and rigid schemas, we argue that sensor network deployment should be simple. The key in GATD’s design is the observation that there are common patterns to how disparate sensor network applications handle and process their generated data. To take advantage of these similarities we present a system comprised of common modules that different applications can leverage. To join GATD, new sensors simply send raw data. GATD will buffer this raw data indefinitely until an application specific formatter is written to map the raw data to key-value pairs. These streams can be combined, processed, graphed, stored, or otherwise manipulated by a standard set of transforms or new custom drivers. With this architecture, we argue that GATD provides a robust, extensible, and versatile Swarm dataplane.
