Streaming telemetry is the future of network monitoring. Kentik NMS is a modern network observability solution that supports streaming telemetry as a primary monitoring mechanism, but it also works for engineers running SNMP on legacy devices they just can’t get rid of. This hybrid approach is necessary for network engineers managing networks in the real world, and it makes it easy to migrate from SNMP to a modern monitoring strategy built on streaming telemetry.
Kentik NMS is here to provide better network performance monitoring and observability. Read how to get started, from installation and configuration to a brief tour of what you can expect from Kentik’s new network monitoring solution.
Kentik Journeys uses an AI-based, large language model to explore data from your network and troubleshoot problems in real time. Using natural language queries, Kentik Journeys is a huge step forward in leveraging AI to democratize data and make it simple for any engineer at any level to analyze network telemetry at scale.
Kentik NMS has launched and is setting sail in familiar waters. Monitoring with SNMP and streaming telemetry is only the first leg of the journey. In short order, we’ll unfurl additional options, increasing NMS’s velocity and maneuverability.
We’re bringing AI to network observability. And adding new products to Kentik, including a modern NMS, to simplify troubleshooting complex networks.
Is SNMP on life support, or is it as relevant today as ever? The answer is more complicated than a simple yes or no. SNMP is reliable, customizable, and very widely supported. However, SNMP has some serious limitations, especially for modern network monitoring — limitations that streaming telemetry solves. In this post, learn about the advantages and drawbacks of SNMP and streaming telemetry and why they should both be a part of a network visibility strategy.
Let me tell you something you already know: Networks are more complex than ever. They are massive. They are confounding. Modern networks are obtuse superorganisms of switches, routers, containers, and overlays; a hodgepodge of telemetry from AWS, Azure, GCP, OCI, and sprawling infrastructure that spans more than a dozen timezones.
With the increasing reliance on SaaS applications in organizations and homes, monitoring connectivity and connection quality is crucial. In this post, learn how with Kentik’s State of the Internet, you can dive deep into the performance metrics of the most popular SaaS applications.
