Task 2: Closed loop automation using AppFormix
Juniper’s AppFormix addresses the real-time streaming analytics challenge by implementing “Smart Agents,” each with a built-in distributed analytics engine. These analytics engines perform on-the-fly analysis of inline metrics as they are collected or streamed from their respective monitored devices or virtual endpoints to directly generate events and alerts. Based on the event and alert type generated, users can program AppFormix to take remedial actions, like moving the workloads or killing rogue processes or creating a 360-degree feedback loop. This eliminates the need for users to act on routine or common alerts and instead send out notifications after the remedial action is taken, ensuring that your multi-cloud enviroment operates just the way you “intend” it to.
