Monitoring the health and status of a space based communication system is required to diagnose problems, analyze trends, and predict future perfor- mance. Performance of this function requires col- lecting health and status data from network elements in the communication system. There is a trade-off involved in performing the required data collection. Detailed data collection on all aspects of the hard- ware and software operation is desirable in order to fully evaluate the health and status of the system. The disadvantage is that the data collection uses sys- tem bandwidth that would otherwise be revenue producing. The goal is to get as much useful infor- mation as possible while using as little revenue bearing bandwidth as possible. This invention pro- vides a means to collect a small amount of critical data, analyze this data in real time, and take action based on this analysis. This action may be to collect more detailed data related to a call.
