As noted on our what we're working on post, we're investigating the inclusion of BGP AS information and would love any feedback on the following:
1. What specific use-cases / problems are you interested in solving with this feature? Are you an end-customer or a provider?
2. What specific BGP AS data would you need displayed in NTA to solve your use-cases?
3. What BGP AS reports or charts would you expect to see in NTA?
BTW, those who respond first will get first dibs on seeing prototypes and betas 😉
Thanks in advance for your help!
I posted another topic recently in the NTA "What you are working on" thread. We are medium sized financial and have multi-homed and geographically dispersed data centers, running Orion SLX, NTA, IPSLA, etc. BGP and Traffic Engineering (TE) is a challenge in the current netflow product as it does not support aggregration cache. Being able to aggregrate by AS or prefix, source - destination etc would be ideal for adjust route-maps and local preferences to achieve the most efficient load sharing. Right now its a "Top Talkers" game and looking at interface loads. Not an exact science as one will never achieve equal loads but 60/40 across diverse carriers is obtainable and netflow is the tool analyze the traffic flow
As network engineer in small ISP/Utility network
I will buy the netflow to our solarwinds if the product would have some of the capabilities of the Arbor peakflow .
I don’t need the density or the scale of the peakflow just more support to BGP and MPLS.
I think that kind capabilities will sure sell the netflow much better to the Tier 2/3 ISPs and carrier ethernet .
