SeisNetWatch Public Software

SeisNetWatch is designed as a control and observation tool for seismic networks, to be used by network operators to monitor the state of health of the network and to control the data acquisition software.

The SeisNetWatch system is a three-tiered distributed system of:

  1. Agent Python Scripts
  2. SNW Server (NetworkStationInfo - NSI)
  3. SNW Client GUI
Agents collect data and control the acquisition software and communicate over the network to the server. The server is the centralized decision making tool that receives the agent's messages and passes on filtered data to the client.
