Adding VCF-Insight Analytics for Network Visibility
Virtualization-Centric Fabric Insight Analytics (VCF™ Insight Analytics) is an application developed by Pluribus Network that enables the network administrator to extract the analytical value from the telemetry data reported by the network switches powered by Pluribus Networks Netvisor® network operating system.
VCF Insight Analytics connects the switches as part of the Netvisor® fabric to gain visibility into the network, and extract all the telemetry data made visible by the Pluribus Network Operating System.
Once data is collected, VCF Insight Analytics relies upon a modern search engine database infrastructure to store, aggregate, filter, correlate and visualize vast amounts of data in real-time as well as with a powerful “time machine” functionality.
As shown in Figure 1, VCF IA can be deployed in a Virtual Wire fabric topology, by connecting the VCF IA server(s) to the fabric management network. Using Netvisor® API, VCF IA establishes a connection to any Virtual Wire switch in fabric to gain visibility into the entire fabric network and extract all the device layer telemetry data made visible by the distributed Pluribus Network Operating System.
Once data is collected, VCF™ IA relies upon a modern search engine database infrastructure to store, aggregate, filter, correlate and visualize vast amount of data in real time.
