Network Monitoring 101

The Art of Zen and Network Monitoring

By Jayne MillerApr 5, 2021


Look alive. Our latest episode of the WAN Manager Podcast is all about network monitoring.

Most of the enterprises we interview are running dozens or more SaaS applications. And most of our WAN Manager Survey respondents have moved their data centers off-premises—the majority are connecting to multiple IaaS providers. Further, enterprises are increasingly more likely to piece together networks from multiple vendors.

This means we're seeing a more diverse underlay to orchestrate and manage. And a key to the successful management of such includes visibility into and monitoring of the network.

Greg is joined by Kentik Co-founder and CEO Avi Freedman to discuss just that. They talk about the history of network monitoring, where it's going, and get a little philosophical in the process.
