The model for producing and collecting network performance data hasn’t changed much since the late 1980s when SNMP instrumented network devices were first available on the market. Network equipment providers instrumented their devices, enabling external management systems like the SevOne Data Platform to periodically poll devices for their latest management data, typically once every five minutes.
This model of polling for data every five minutes was adequate in the days of static networks. But in today’s world of virtualized and intent-based networks where accurate and timely performance data is critical for continuous operations, depending solely on poll-based architectures can limit the scale and efficiency of networks as a whole.
To address these challenges, network equipment providers are beginning to support a new “push” type of model to provide performance data eliminating the need for management systems to poll these new devices. Now management systems can request specific network telemetry data be sent to them at specific intervals—intervals as fast as every second.
Designed for Insight with Speed at Scale, the SevOne Data Platform and SevOne Streaming Data Collectors are designed to help you begin to plan for this market transition to network streaming telemetry. Currently supporting Cisco IOS, SevOne Streaming Data Collectors are available for trial, non-production use for the collection of network streaming telemetry data for further analysis and insight by the SevOne Data Platform.
