Network software automation and intelligence is a passion we share as network engineering software developers at Intelligent Visibility, Inc. Creating innovative software solutions in the rising world of software-defined networking (SDN) can prove challenging. The source data that we require for our software is mostly located within the network device’s operating system. In the past accessing this source data has been a serious time investment mainly due to inconsistent API implementation types across different operating systems for many different hardware platforms.
A leaf and spine fabric is challenging to monitor. The fabric spreads traffic across all the switches and links in order to maximize bandwidth. Unlike traditional hierarchical network designs, where a small number of links can be monitored to provide visibility, a leaf and spine network has no special links or switches where running CLI commands or attaching a probe would provide visibility. Even if it were possible to attach probes, the effective bandwidth of a leaf and spine network can be as high as a Petabit/second, well beyond the capabilities of current generation monitoring tools. The 2 minute video...
