Network telemetry supports network monitoring. It reflects the current status of the network and serves as a decision support tool to improve network performance, availability, security and efficiency.
With network telemetry, dedicated telemetry systems can be set up within the network to provide a large number of measured values. Crucial information can be extracted from the large amounts of data. Streaming network telemetry can operate as a real-time data collection service and transmit the state data to network management.
Streaming network telemetry is an interesting alternative to classic network monitoring with SNMP.
