The basics of network troubleshooting have not changed much over the years. When you’re network troubleshooting, a lot can be required to solve the problem. You could be solving many different issues across several different systems on your complex, hybrid network infrastructure. A network observability solution can help speed up and simplify the process.
In part 2 of the network observability series, we tackle the first key to the input needed for network observability — from what networks and network elements we gather telemetry data.
The goal of network observability is to answer any question about your network infrastructure and to have support from your observability stack to get those answers quickly, flexibly, proactively, and interactively. In this post, Kentik CEO Avi Freedman gives his thoughts on the past, present, and future of network observability.
Cloud Solution Architect Ted Turner describes a process of migrating all of applications to the cloud, and gives key takeaways as to how building your observability platform to understand both the application state as well as underlying infrastructure is key to maintaining uptime for customers.
Kentik Firehose is a way for you to export enriched network traffic data from the Kentik Network Observability Cloud. With Firehose, organizations can directly integrate network data into other analytic systems, message queues, time-series databases, or data lakes.
In this post, we show how Kentik Synthetic Monitoring supports high-frequency tests with sub-minute intervals, providing network teams with a tool that captures what’s happening in the network, including subtle degradations.
Greg Villain, our director of product management and self-described die-hard gamer dives into the early access launch of Baldur’s Gate 3. He takes a look from a content delivery perspective to determine if this is a good precursor for the future traffic event when the game releases in 2021.
What is synthetic testing, and where do point solutions fail? In this blog post, Kentik Co-founder and CEO Avi Freedman discusses network performance testing and why Kentik designed an autonomous and affordable synthetic monitoring capability that is fully integrated into our network observability platform.
Kentik software engineer Will Glozer gives us a peek under the hood of Kentik’s new synthetic monitoring solution, explaining how and why Kentik used the Rust programming language to build its network monitoring agent.
