In my last post in this mini-series, I covered why so many customers we’re talking to are considering migrating away from MPLS and the journey to SD-WAN. In this follow-up post on wide area network monitoring, we’ll look at the growing pains associated with migrating to Direct Internet Access (DIA). Regardless of whether you choose to implement a more basic branch DIA architecture using per-site policy routing, or an SD-WAN, moving away from MPLS networking creates a major challenge and one which all of the customers I’ve been speaking to recently have been wrestling with.… Read More »

Given the huge amount of data that traverses a network, all network monitoring boils down to choosing which samples of data you should pay attention to. And active monitoring, sending and receiving diagnostic traffic or device info is no different. More samples can increase fidelity, but can also cost more in network overhead and analysis. So choosing the right sample size is important.… Read More »
