  • Publication number: 20220321434
    Abstract: Reliability and performance of a data center is increased by processing telemetry data in a network device in the data center. A Telemetry Correlation Engine (TCE) in the network device correlates host level telemetry received from a compute node with low-level network device telemetry collected in the network device to identify performance bottlenecks for microservices based applications. The Telemetry Correlation Engine processes and analyzes the telemetry data from the compute node and network statistics available in the network device.
