Assure service delivery
What keeps datacenters fast and reliable? Operators who can see traffic quickly, clearly, and completely, from the big picture down to key details. Architected when traffic was limited and applications were centralized, legacy visibility appliances aren’t much help. Today’s datacenter environment calls for a new approach that scales to massive volume and sees across distributed components. Kentik Detect® does it all, from real-time visibility and ad hoc analytics to performance monitoring and anomaly detection.
As application and service components become increasingly distributed, east-west traffic is less predictable and bottlenecks are more common. To assure optimal performance, your network, operations, and site reliability engineering (SRE) teams need comprehensive network intelligence. Kentik Detect delivers big data-powered visibility both within and between datacenters, whether hierarchical or spine-leaf. With Kentik you’ll have the insights you need to quickly identify and resolve service-impacting issues.

Analytics at scale
Operating today’s datacenters requires real-time traffic visibility and analytics at massive scale. Kentik Detect unifies millions of flow data records per second (NetFlow, sFlow, IPFIX) with BGP, GeoIP, and host performance data, creating a single multi-month datastore that’s unsummarized and silo-free. It enables ad hoc queries on any combination of fields with selectable metrics and compound filters. And it returns answers in seconds across billions of records. Kentik Detect gives datacenter teams unsurpassed scope, granularity, and speed for both real-time and forensic analytics.

Modern datacenter networks are too complex to monitor manually. That’s why Kentik Detect includes sophisticated alert policies that track metrics for multiple dimensions against baselined or absolute values. Multi-level thresholds enable custom-calibrated alarms for conditions such as spikes, loss of service, and unexpected traffic flows. Dynamic dashboards illustrate each alarm and link to our Data Explorer for deeper drill-down. With the industry’s most advanced anomaly detection, Kentik Detect protects the performance of your traffic, services, and applications.

User experience relies on network performance. So it’s critical to rapidly understand and respond to issues like rising latency or TCP retransmits. Before the cloud, you could do that with a single appliance at the datacenter uplink. But today you need a cloud-friendly solution that can be deployed anywhere. Kentik NPM’s lightweight software agent uses packet capture on real application traffic to bring performance metrics into Kentik Detect for analytics and anomaly detection. Offering a pervasive view of network performance, Kentik NPM monitors critical services to assure user experience.
