I'm looking for an arduino like device to provide the following functionality:
*Portable compact console port data logging
*Device should be able to interface with traditional console ports - both Serial interfaces and RJ45 interfaces. Needs to support both.
*Device should have a basic management facility to set respective console communication port parameters e.g. baud, parity, flow control, etc.
*Device should be able to log all gathered console output to portable storage such as flash, SDHC, SD card, etc.
*file format and structure are negotiable - just need any way to distinguish files and time stamps. Idealistically a simple .txt file of the output would suffice.
Things I really want to have - but aren't deal breakers:
* Powered via console port. In the spirit of an easily portable device, I don't want to provide external power to it. If this unobtainable, then battery powered (but long life)
* Be able to set parameters that are "sticky" - so when I unplug said device, I can insert it into a different console port and it will automatically boot, and start capturing data from console port.
So in summation, imagine a handheld device you can easily walk up to any router/switch/etc with a console port, plug it in, and it will automatically log any output to the storage onboard of the device.

I can do this project, however I don't know exactly if powered from serial signal will be enough for power logger plus write to any massstorage. I don't think so. Best Regards
