NANOG 68 is next week and we’d love to meet you!

NANOG (North American Network Operators Group) time has arrived again.  NANOG 68 will be held October 17-19 at the Fairmont in Dallas, TX and a lot of Kentikians will be there.  If you haven’t seen Kentik or been updated in a while, we’ve got some cool new things to share with you.  What’s Kentik up to at NANOG 68?

Network Performance Monitoring solution

A few weeks ago, Kentik announced the first network performance monitoring solution that is built for cloud and digital operations.  We’ve enhanced the Kentik Detect big data analytics SaaS, which has always taken a broad range of data, from sFlow, NetFlow, and IPFIX,  to BGP, SNMP, and geolocation.  It now ingests performance metrics like TCP retransmits and latency.  We’ve accomplished this by adding the Kentik nProbe Host Agent, which installs on application or load balancing servers (like HAProxy or NGINX), samples flows and measures performance on all the packets in those flows, then transmits the measurement data in IPFIX records to the Kentik Detect platform.  This produces network performance visibility based on your actual application traffic, and you can use all of the powerful ad-hoc analytics, dashboarding, and anomaly detection capabilities of Kentik Detect to understand these new data sets, and correlate them with the rest of Kentik’s traffic, BGP paths, geolocation, device and interface data for better understanding and management of network performance.

Preview of new anomaly and DDoS detection

 We’ll also be showing preview demonstrations of our latest enhancements to our anomaly detection capabilities that add intelligent baselining plus some exciting new integrated capabilities for automating DDoS mitigation. 

Sponsoring Monday and Tuesday breakfasts + socks

Kentik will be sponsoring the Monday extended breakfast and the Tuesday power breakfast.  Come by and visit, get a demo of our new wares.  And BTW, if you enjoyed our “Netallica” NetFlow t-shirt, you’ll want to pick up the new Kentik wearable.
