[India Time Zone] IT operations teams often struggle to assemble an effective network performance management (NPM) toolkit because the landscape is becoming increasingly complex each day. The Operations, Administration, and Management (OAM) based low fidelity data collection methods e.g. SNMP, ping had been historically targeted towards human operators to monitor and diagnose the traditional data center networks. With modern high-definition network telemetry data from SDN, SD-WAN, hybrid cloud(s), real-time observability becomes a challenge, resulting in blind spots, higher MTTR. The sheer volume, velocity, and veracity of network monitoring data stream isn’t actionable by human operators efficiently anymore; it’s only suitable to be consumed by machines.
