ROSCon 2017: The rostune package: Monitoring systems of distributed ROS nodes — Georgios Stavrinos and Stasinos Konstantopoulos (NCSR “Demokritos”)

Looking foward to ROSCon 2018 we’re highlighting presentations from last year. The ROSCon 2018 registration is currently open. As well as the Call for Proposals.

Finishing up the morning session Georgios and Stasinos presented rostune. A tool to help you understand the state of your ROS system better and how that can help you improve performance.

Abstract

rostune is a tool that helps ROS developers distribute their nodes in the most effective way. It collects and visualizes statistics for topics and nodes, such as CPU usage and network usage. In this talk we are going to present technical details about rostune and a characteristic use case from an on-going project developing a home assistance robot, where processing can be distributed between the robot’s on-board computer and computational units available at the home.
