Module eventtrigger

source code

Check for new events in the database.

Inter-Organisational Intrusion Detection System (IOIDS)

This module is supposed to emulate trigger functionality of the database. Somehow, IOIDS must be able to know about new events, reaching the central database (from other sub-systems). Since it is quite complicated, to trigger from the database a function within this system, the following workaround has been put in place:

This module runs a background thread, which in certain frequencies checks the event database for new events. (configurable via main configuration file for IOIDS). New events are reported to the data engine, which will then take further action.
