##This event is postponed. Watch this page for updates.

Netconf has emerged from conversations that started at Rootconf 2019 edition and continued into Rootconf Pune, Hyderabad and Delhi editions subsequently.

Netconf is a platform for network engineers, ISPs, government representatives from telecom and IT departments, civil society groups, policy makers, providers of networking solutions, tech and law groups and activists, among others to discuss the technical, economic and social aspects of running networks and infrastructure, and access. See for more details about topics.

The first edition of Netconf is an unconference, where participants can propose topics, suggest speakers and session formats. The event’s agenda will be set by participants. There will be room for open sessions for participants to propose topics/ideas/sessions on the morning of the event itself.

Event details:
Date: Friday, 27 March 2020
Venue: TERI auditorium, Domlur, Bangalore
Time: 9 AM to 6:30 PM followed
Post-conference programme: reading of Michael W. Lucas’s works on tech-fiction followed by dinner.

In this talk, I would be sharing my point of views on Network monitoring.

As we all know that, how important is network monitoring in our estate and Cloud.

I will be explaining in technical details, how we have moved from standard monitoring to advanced automated monitoring. We have developed event correlation engines that can perform most of the troubleshooting and repeated tasks that a network engineer used to perform. I will demonstrate how we can achieve better Mean Time To Detect failures.

Implementing the network monitoring by telegraf using SNMP, “Elastic Container Services” , advanced python scripts and AWS native services like Lambda. Monitoring network elements using Wavefront and sending alerts to customized slack channels with runbooks.

Advanced Event correlation engine-Network troubleshooting –

Event correlation Engine is an automated troubleshooting engine to improve the MTTD and MTTR. When alerts triggering event then workflow will login to the network environment and validate for failures and correlates the dependencies automatically. Network engineers will now have all the analysis performed for an alert within seconds and do not have to necessarily login to devices to understand the reason for a specific alert. The workflow also provides potential impact and action to be taken for a specific alert by using AWS native services like API gateway, Step functions, lambda and DB’s to achieve this functionality.
The conclusion output will be notified to the Network team for remediation.

As a next step I would propose to incorporate auto remediation and same can be reviewed and discussed with audience.

Target Audience: Networking folks who are interested in advanced network monitoring and automated workflow using python and cloud services

Key Takeaways: How we can have advanced monitoring and network troubleshooting automation as part of service which can improve Mean time to detect and Mean time to restore.
