Combined With Analytics, Data Streaming Forms an Invaluable Visibility Solution
In a previous blog, Deepak Patil discussed the theory and operations behind using data streaming to provide network visibility and analytics. Here, we’ll detail a concrete example of how you can build a complete solution (illustrated in this video) using SLX products and two collectors configured in Splunk Enterprise. The plugins to Splunk Enterprise can be found in this GitHub link so you can evaluate the effort involved, or implement it in your own lab.

This is Part I of a Two-Part Series, where we discuss the components and attributes of intent-based networking, including the capabilities for visibility, monitoring, and programmability from the Infrastucture. In Part II, we’ll detail several use cases for intent-based networking.
Networks, like all of IT, are beholden to business policies (intent) as well as to the state of the infrastructure (inventory, traffic, topology) at the time that changes are made. Both of these categories are crucial, and are taken into account with pervasive visibility, relevant analytics and cross-domain, workflow-based automation.
