ArubaOS-CX system databases

The ArubaOS-CX operating system is a modular, database-centric operating system. Every aspect of the switch configuration and state information is modeled in the ArubaOS-CX switch configuration and state database. The entire current state of the system is in the configuration database, including the following:

  • Configuration information

  • Status of all features

  • Statistics

The ArubaOS-CX operating system also includes a time series database, which acts as a built-in network record. The time series database makes the data seamlessly available to Aruba Network Analytics Engine agents that use rules that evaluate network conditions over time. Time-series data about the resources monitored by agents are automatically collected and presented in graphs in the switch Web UI.
