P4 Inband Network Telemetry Use Cases

University of Missouri Kansas City - School of Computing and Engineering

In managing a large-scale data center, real-time root cause analysis of system events is a difficult task, as it requires vast measurement and processing resources. This project focuses on packet-level data collection from the data plane. The project will build on the recently proposed P4’s Inband Network Telemetry (“INT”) capability is promising for network management. We explore the relationship between CPU utilization and data from network telemetry with machine learning. The goal is to enable the creation of various policies for devising dynamic network resource provisioning and adaptive failure predictions.
