Even before packets start flowing, enterprise networks are complex repositories of information. This information is often required to solve operational issues — like finding sources of unwanted traffic drops or protocol configuration errors — or, to find problems before they become issues.

Yet, this information typically goes untapped, because getting it requires too much work. The data is scattered and stored in different formats, with disparate methods to access it.

Answering even basic questions about a network can be challenging. Consider this simple task: find all devices in your network whose operational status does not match their configured status. For example, if an interface is configured to be UP, but is operationally DOWN, we want to know about this!

In this session, Andreas Voellmy, Senior Engineer at Forward Networks, will discuss how to implement a simple network check and how to take in vendor-specific data and organize it into a structured and normalized data model.
