The visual above represents the following back-end Linux processing:
IDS Alerts File Size: 15,898,993 IDS Alerts: 43,639 Nodes: 3,379 Note 1 Edges: 3,378 XML File Size: 1,152,487 Bytes Time to Create XML FDG: 5 minutes Note 2,3 XML File Size: 1,188,220 Bytes Note 3,4
1. 43,639 Alerts Clustered into 3379 Nodes
2. 16 Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 6128 64 MB RAM
3. Coordinates Added in Force-Directed Graph Process
4. Network Load Across Internet, Unity 3D Load Time ~30 Seconds
Creating the FDG on the back-end servers, outside the visualization engine, for large data sets is better for the performance of the visualization engine. As the graph grows larger, the graph processing will require a distributing graph processing architecture.
