SNMP is dead

NANOG (2018)

Abstract

Modern networks have significantly outpaced the monitoring capabilities of SNMP and command-line scraping. Over the last three years we at Google have been working with members of the networking industry via the OpenConfig.net effort to redefine network monitoring. We have now deployed Streaming Telemetry in production to monitor devices from multiple vendors. We will talk about the experience and highlight the open source components we are providing to the community to accelerate industry-wide adoption.
