Package V starts with an in-depth one-day introduction to telemetry and monitoring capabilities from a data collection perspective. We will understand fundamental concepts of monitoring technologies, such as SNMP and gNMI, and how they relate to different network vendors. We then move to the introduction of Telegraf as an agent to learn how it can be used to gather meaningful metrics from your system. We then move to a one-day workshop focused on the understanding of data normalization and enrichment, where we will discover how Nautobot can help us enrich our metrics. And finally, we focus on storing, visualizing, and alerting based on metrics we have collected, normalized, and enriched so far with Prometheus and Grafana.
At the end of these sessions, students will be able to apply their knowledge and skills to build their own Telegraf agents to collect, normalize, and enrich metrics from network infrastructure and be able to visualize and alert on it.
In this day and age, there is a need to evolve the way monitoring tasks are performed. An engineer wants the capability to select the metrics they want to monitor from a system, the capability to add extra information to the metrics to be able to use it to create more meaningful dashboards and of course alerts. They also want the capability to correlate the information they are getting from these systems to aid in their analysis.
There is a plethora of tools and systems that help an organization give their engineers the capability to manipulate the data ingested to the system, all the way to the visualizations and alerts it can generate.
At the end of this package of courses, the students will be able to apply their knowledge and skills to configure and operate a Telemetry stack for their network infrastructure.
