Validation Des Services Réseaux Avec Netrounds

At all Field Day events, we try to gather perspectives from across the data center and the world. That’s why we love this post in French from Mario Gingras about what he saw from Netrounds at Networking Field Day last month. Their agent-based network monitoring offers full programmability, while giving admins a look at the performance and immediate availability of key services. He digs into the architecture in the post. He found it an impressively complete solution, but one that’s relatively simple to configure.


Off the Cuff – NFD20 Wrap Up

From a rainy recording in Silicon Valley, Jordan Martin gathered together some fellow delegates from Networking Field Day to discuss what they heard at the event. They run down each presenter and discuss what stood out and struck their interest. Guests include Mario Gingras, Nick Shoemaker, Richard McIntosh, Brian Gleason, and Drew Conry-Murray.


Netrounds Marries Active Testing and Monitoring to Validate Network Performance and Availability

Drew Conry-Murray is no stranger to networking, but he hadn’t heard about Netrounds until they presented at Networking Field Day last month. They offer a pretty straightforward solution for service providers and large enterprises: Active verification that services are up and performing acceptably. They do this by running a wide array of test agents to get a client-side perspective on these services. Drew also liked the automation features available, with APIs available for third-party integrations.

Richard McIntosh was impressed with what he saw from Netrounds at Networking Field Day earlier this year. Using a series of network agents, they offer testing, monitoring, and troubleshooting, reporting back to a Control Center in a nicely put together GUI. They showed a demo using their API to deploy seven agents in seven countries with reporting starting to Control Center in under a minute. That kind of active monitoring is invaluable for modern networks.
