ok, this seems to be a bit more low-level than ruleCore is intended
for. But
people tend to use software in the most strange ways.... ;)

It is a interesting idea to use ruleCore for monitoring industrial
things, really cool. 
I suppose there exists some kind of standard to extract events from
your typical
industrial process thingy and somehow collect them all and send them
into a ruleCore instance?
