Detection and alerts
Today’s networks have become far too complex for manual monitoring. Luckily Kentik Detect offers the industry’s most powerful anomaly detection and alerting system, featuring real-time multi-metric evaluation of traffic sliced by multi-dimensional keys. Alert policy presets make it easy to get started. Detailed configuration options enable customization for any need. And adaptive baselining ensures that normal variations don’t trigger false alarms. Alerts can be set to trigger not only notifications but also mitigation, either directly or via or third-party integrations.

How does your traffic get where it’s going? Kentik Detect’s BGP-based peering analysis shows you flows by AS, device, and geography. Create a BGP-based dataset from any combination of devices, dimensions, and time range. See graphs and tables showing traffic by BGP path, countries, or ASNs (last-hop, transit, or next-hop). Apply additional filters and zoom in on paths involving an individual AS or country. Kentik Detect’s peering analytics lets you assess the value of current peering relationships and find promising candidates for additional savings or business opportunities.

What do you need to see to manage your network? Kentik thinks you’re the one who knows best. That’s why we provide multiple ways to create, customize, and save dashboards. Choose a preset for traffic, BGP, performance, or security/DDoS, then easily tailor it to your environment. Or build a view in Data Explorer and save it to a dashboard panel. Dashboards can be personal or organization-wide. And dashboards are continuously updated as network data is received, so you’ll be able to respond sooner to issues like DDoS attacks or congestion hot spots.
