The ability to monitor distributed systems at different levels of abstraction is required for accurate fault detection in order to enable fault removal and fault forecasting for system verification, enhancement and evaluation. Typically, modern communication systems have high data throughput and monitoring the bus for hours produces large amounts of data at high rates. Due to the environment in which the monitoring tool is expected to be used, non-volatile memories are often mandatory as data storage. The required frequent software accesses to these memories, however, results in high processor loads. To that end, this paper presents an approach that illustrates the improvements that can be achieved when several memory access functionalities are transferred from software to hardware. The different approaches implemented in an FPGA were subjected to an experimental evaluation to quantify the results.
