ATOM has a modern software stack. The stack has a time-series database for all the performance data and a Kafka message bus for queuing. The real time information is available via kafka. The normalized information that comes via SNMP, streaming telemetry, SNMP traps and syslog is stored in the time series database. This helps ATOM to offer trending information for the data collected. The time-series database can be scaled horizontally to meet the customer requirements on high volume of data. However, ATOM also employs database optimization via roll-up and downsampling to handle different time ranges of data.
