Status Updates of Central Systems

 

Incident / Fault Reports

  • Incident / Fault Reports (de)
    The incident and fault reports provide information on malfunctions, maintenance activities, or problems concerning components and services of the centralized IT systems. The colors indicate the current status of the involved systems.

Status of Central Network Components

Core Network Status

  • Backbone (de)
    The RWTH backbone is the high-speed data network to connect individual buildings and inner-building distribution points. The network serves to enable communication between institutions.

  • XWiN (de)

    The XWin router connects the RWTH Aachen backbone wit the XWiN German Research and Education Network, ensuring a connection to the outside world. This makes it possible to reach other research and commercial networks, both nationally and internationally.

  • Weathermap (de)
    The Weathermap shows the central RWTH backbone routers and their interconnections. Furthermore, data-intensive systems are visualized. The capacity utilization (load) of the individual systems is numerically (percentage) and graphically represented.

Status of Network Devices

  • Building Routers (de)
    These routers secure the connection between the internal network infrastructures of the individual buildings with the central RWTH Aachen backbone. All routers maintained by the IT center are represented in the list.
  • Switches (de)
    In older buildings it is not possible to connect each individual data socket to the building's router. In this case, the connection is realized with the help of so-called switches.

SecurityStatus / Protection

  • Blast-o-Mat (de)
    Blast-o-mat" is a software application that detects conspicuous system using special algorithms. It identifies infection of end devices through the detection and analysis of conspicuous behaviors such as port scans, distribution of spam, and denial of service attacks. The application notifies users and administrators of detected threats.
