Measure the Internet data consumption of KEPWARE

Measure the Internet data consumption of KEPWARE

Hello,

 

I would like to know if it is possible to measure the Internet data consumption of my KEPWARE to communicate with the Azure cloud.

 

I have a customer who does not provide his local Internet for KEPWARE operation (because of data security).

 

To make the sale of the project viable I gave the idea of using a mobile internet (3G / 4G) but I need to measure how much internet I will consume to buy the best data package.

 

If I can measure how much a TAG consumes on the internet I can multiply it by the total TAGs I have and get an idea of the total consumption.

 

Is there any way to know this?

 

My environment:

 

KEPServerEX 6.9 consumes data from a ControlLogix PLC (Rockwell Automation) and makes this data available to the Thingworx platform (version 8.5) installed on an Azure cloud.

Don't have an exact answer for you, but you could put something like wireshark on the system temporarily and do a time snapshot to see how much you transfer in that time.

You could check the actual router to see if it provides any detailed throughput information.

There are probably other programs that help measure data transfer.

 

I believe Azure itself has some reporting/monitoring tools that show amount of incoming data as well
