Networks play a fundamental role in the adoption and growth of Internet applications. Penetrating enterprises, homes, factories, and even cities, networks sustain modern society. While assuring responsive and performant networks in today’s hybrid, distributed and containerized application environments occurs behind the scenes in intangible clouds and diagrams abstractions, network glitches are more visible and unforgiving than ever.
Dealing with so much monitoring data, it can be easy to be consumed by it. However, there is a way to effectively manage your IT infrastructure, by centralizing, analyzing, and automating it. InfluxData enables you to do this with our network monitoring tools. Telegraf, our collection agent with 200+ plugins, supports protocols such as ICMP/Ping, SNMP, NetFlow, SFlow, and Syslog. InfluxDB, our database and storage engine purpose-built to handle time series data, contains a powerful query engine for processing multiple data sources in real-time. Chronograf, our visualization tool, has pre-canned dashboards with the standard baseline for network monitoring. And Kapacitor, our rules engine, makes processing, monitoring, and alerting simple.
In this paper, we discuss how you can use the TICK stack for network performance monitoring to gain the necessary visibility in the status, performance and responsiveness of all network devices in your enterprise, cloud or hybrid application environments.
