Mellanox today announced an advanced Network Telemetry technology that provides visibility into Data Plane Anomalies – for public cloud, private cloud and enterprise computing.
What Just Happened (WJH) is a new intelligent monitoring technology that goes well beyond conventional streaming telemetry and Inband Network Telemetry (INT) offerings. These conventional telemetry offerings generate enormous amounts of data that is mined from network port counters and statistical packet sampling and hop-by-hop INT data. This type of telemetry data lacks any context or actionable details on abnormal network behavior, forcing the network admin or monitoring tool to perform time consuming analysis to find the root cause of network issues. WJH event-based telemetry delivers direct and actionable information and thus eliminates the guesswork from network troubleshooting.
In Mellanox based switch systems, WJH inspects packets across all ports at line-rate, at speeds that would overwhelm traditional Deep Packet Inspection solutions. WJH then identifies anomalous behavior, consolidates this into concise, specific, and actionable data that enables rapid remediation and recovery of cloud applications and critical business operations.
