AmLight SDN Looking Glass - A Network Monitoring System for SDN Networks

Time 10/18/17 01:30PM-01:50PM

Room Grand Ballroom A

Session Abstract

The AmLight network was migrated to SDN in 2014, and since then, most efforts were focused on creating an “operable” network. Up to now, monitoring and troubleshooting are still complicated activities, and the lack of tools and procedures are the main reason for this complexity. In the 2016 Internet2 Technology Exchange, AmLight presented its set of tools and methodologies to operate and troubleshoot its SDN network in the intra-domain context. At the 2017 Internet2 Global Summit, AmLight presented its recently developed inter-domain data plane tracing solution. The feedbacks received from these two conferences showed that the academic community is very interested in topics related to troubleshooting of SDN networks. At the end of 2016, AmLight decided to enhance its operational environment developing a single centralized Network Monitoring System (NMS) focused on the requirements of OpenFlow networks. The idea is to consolidate all SDN tools created in-house so far into a single tool that would be a single point of view to understand the network behavior and automate troubleshooting activities. This tool being developed at AmLight is called SDN Looking Glass, and it will incorporate some of the tools developed and presented by the AmLight engineering team in past conferences, including the AmLight Sniffer and the AmLight SDNTrace and its inter-domain data plane tests. Our goal with this presentation is to present the SDN Looking Glass to the academic community, describing how this tool fits into our SDN troubleshooting Swiss Army Knife for both control and data planes, interact with the audience to understand possible next steps for operation, auditing, and security in SDN networks and possibly run a live demo of this tool running in production at the AmLight SDN network.
